5th & Shady takes a progressive approach to prepare athletes for long-term success. US Lacrosse certified coaches will provide developmentally appropriate competition formats and rules, players get to play in ways that align with their physical, cognitive, social, and emotional development. We start with small-sided games at younger ages, with the size of the field and the number of players progressively increasing as players develop both physically and cognitively. When players are developing skills and have emerging decision-making capacity, our league structure supports that development. Open to both boys and girls ages 7 - 15.
