Lacrosse - Girls 7th
2013 7th Grade Girls Lacrosse
Kinkaid Girls Lacrosse
As a program, our goal is to create an environment where student-athletes are able to grow as leaders, followers, competitors and teammates. Success will be achieved when we take risks, learn from mistakes, and control “the controlables” (effort, attitude, coachability, sportsmanship). It is the coaches’ responsibility that every lacrosse student-athlete graduates with an understanding, respect and appreciation for the sport.
Importance of the Off-Season
Lacrosse is unlike many sports in Texas -- there is currently a huge lack of youth programs, camps, clinics and club teams so it’s important that each player take it upon themselves in the off-season to find ways to improve and play. One of the best ways to improve is to use our brand new Kinkaid Lacrosse Wall Ball, a place where both boys and girls lacrosse players can safely hone their stick skills with minimal space, year-round.
The Kinkaid coaching staff will be dedicated to working with student-athletes and passionate about what they do each and every day during the season. Every coach is responsible for planning practices to include some level of stick work, footwork, rules integration, and strategy. The lacrosse coaching staff will be role models and set the bar for sportsmanship, respect, and teamwork.
For many lacrosse players this is the first opportunity they have to learn and play lacrosse at Kinkaid. This is such a pivotal year for learning all of the rules, equipment, and fundamentals of the sport. Each day players will develop both dominant and non-dominant stick skills through practice and repetition. Safety and rules will take a while for them to learn, understand and use in strategic game situations. This is the first year necessary to establish goalies for the program, and while it’s rare for girls to commit to full-time goalie positions, often everyone on the team tries it for a practice or game. At the end of the season the coach will encourage one or two players to pursue the goalie position, while counseling others to positions that will best benefit their 8th grade team.
