Registration for  Fall Academy begins August 7th!


What is "Fall Academy"?

Southern Elite Lacrosse offers sessions once a week in the fall to grow the game of lacrosse. All players are invited to register for the academy sessions regardless of current skill level.

The weekly academy sessions focus on fundamentals, core skills, and lacrosse IQ necessary for development of each individual player. As the season progresses, the individual development will transition to team concepts and skill development for each player to be game ready for the spring season.

Are there games during Academy?

The fall academy focuses strictly on player development. Initially the players will only participate in fundamental skill development necessary for learning the game. As the fall academy progresses, the players will have the opportunity to showcase their new skills in a scrimmage during the practice sessions. All sessions are age appropriate and provide synergy among experienced and non-experienced players to create a positive environment for learning. There are no scheduled "games" during the fall season. The primary focus is fun and fundamentals.

What age groups are eligible for registration?

Southern Elite Lacrosse is dedicated to growing the game of lacrosse in the off season. The fall academy is available to any player regardless of skill level for players as young as 8 years old and any player through grade 12. Since our program does not participate in games, the season registration is open to any player wishing to develop skills as a new player or an elite player wanting to continue to improve their game.

What gear is needed for fall academy?

Each player should be prepared with a full set of protective gear (helmet, chest protecter/shoulder pads, arm pads, gloves, protective cup, mouthguard and lacrosse stick). Additional resources can be found on the US Lacrosse website https://www.uslacrosse.org/safety/equipment

Southern Elite will have loaner gear available but will be issued on a first come, first serve basis for a nominal fee through a reserved appointment time. Distribution of equipment will only be available to participants that are fully paid, registered and have current US Lacrosse registration completed. Details will be provided after registration has closed.
