Sundays from Nov. 5th – Nov. 26th
The RVLC Fall Ball Program is a fun, organized environment aimed to develop lacrosse skills for players of all ages and experience levels. Directed by Ned Webster (bio below), our coaches will focus on rules, terminology, stick skill development, offensive and defensive concepts, and game-like situations. Don’t miss this great opportunity for beginners to get introduced to the game in a fun environment and for experienced players to sharpen their skills and elevate their lacrosse IQ before the Spring Season.
