8U


8U

The purpose of the 6U and 8U Divisions is to introduce, emphasize, and develop the fundamental skills of lacrosse. The focus of practices as well as games is to promote an environment that encourages participation, skill development, and overall enjoyment of the game. 

8U is for kids aged 7 and 8 years old. 

Just like the 6U Division, 8U has some minor rule changes.

 

No two-line rule
No 30-second clock
Play with the 8U boards
Super Star rule is in effect
Only 3 goals by a single player will count toward the score.
If more are scored they will be treated as a goal (face-off) but will not show on the score sheet or scoreboard.

 

Goalies are introduced into game play with equal participation by all players. 6U and 8U are our key programs as we develop our organization.

Games are based on a house league format, with limited travel outside of High River. The reason for this is to allow for all games to be played close to home and reduce travel to and from games. Practices and games are typically limited to twice a week ie. Tues & Thurs evenings.
