The Boys & Girls Club of Marshfield and Marshfield Youth Lacrosse are pleased to announce the Club will assume management of the Little Rams Program for Kindergarten-age girls and boys. The Kindergarten co-ed program is designed with the goal of teaching the fundamentals of the sport while striving to maximize player enthusiasm and a love for the sport.
Marshfield Youth Lacrosse’s leadership team will function in an advisory capacity to the Boys & Girls Club to assist with the transition and operations.
The Kindergarten program is a skill-based development program with an emphasis on fun – from ground ball relay races and cradle tag to hungry hippos and more. Skills practices will be held once per week. Practices are one-hour long and will be structured primarily in a “station format” with all kids receiving equal instruction.
“We’re excited to transition the Little Rams Program to the Boys & Girls Club,” said Jim Markley, President of Marshfield Boys Youth Lacrosse. “Their values and support of youth align with the youth programs here in Marshfield and will offer the continued evolution of lacrosse for families here in our community.”
According to Jen Last, President of Marshfield Youth Girls Lacrosse, “We are happy to see the transition of the Pre-K and K lacrosse program for the town of Marshfield move over to the Boys & Girls Club. The Club is a great place to introduce the sport of lacrosse to our youngest players and we will continue to work closely with the Club to ensure a successful transition as the players progress to MYGL or MYBL in First Grade.”
“We are very enthused to take over this introduction to the amazing sport of lacrosse and teaching the fun, teamwork, and entry level skills that the game offers,” said Jim Bunnell, CEO of the Boys & Girls Club of Marshfield.
