US Lacrosse Youth Players Survey
To Parents of all WMDUSLAX Youth Players:
US Lacrosse is currently in need of your child's input about their experience in the sport. We would greatly appreciate you taking 5 minutes to help your child complete the survey found below. US Lacrosse will be using the data collected to better inform our Athlete Development staff about what kids enjoy, want, and need from their participation in lacrosse.
As an incentive for completing this survey, all respondents will be entered into a drawing to win a Warrior Warp (boys) lacrosse stick or Brine Dynasty (girls) lacrosse stick. 5 lucky boys and 5 lucky girls will be chosen at random from all respondents.
The Carroll County Adaptive Lacrosse Program was started in September 2017. The purpose of the Carroll County Adaptive Lacrosse Program is to provide the opportunity for any youth or adult to play lacrosse with differing abilities. The intent of the program is no matter what the differing abilities the program will adapt to provide an enriched lacrosse experience.
This spring they will be playing at the Boys Field at Deer Park on Sunday's.

A big part of the program is the inclusion of local high school or college lacrosse players to volunteer during the practice. The program tries to provide one on one support to help the players to catch, throw and celebrate playing lacrosse. By having the inclusion of the existing players there are lots of smiling, laughing and good relationship building between the adaptive players and volunteers.
This past fall the Carroll County Adaptive Lacrosse Program participated in an Adaptive Lacrosse Clinic at the US Lacrosse Headquarters in Sparks, MD. The players and volunteers got a free tour of the US Lacrosse Museum and the University of Maryland Men’s Lacrosse Team volunteered to participate in an Adaptive Lacrosse Clinic with the Delaware (Rehoboth) Adaptive Lacrosse, Davidsonville Adaptive Lacrosse, Parkville Adaptive Lacrosse and the Howard County Adaptive Lacrosse Program.
The program will continue in Spring 2019 and registration will be done through Carroll County Recreation and Parks. We need more players to participate, volunteers and equipment to help outfit the Adaptive Lacrosse Players.

As we have done for the past few years WMDUSLAX will reimburse the Level 1 base Instructional Clinic registration fee provided each coach completes the Level 1 Certification by March 24, 2019.

The clinic is open to boys & girls in grades K-8 that are new to lacrosse. The clinic will be facilitated by our area coaches and consist of rotating stations with activities that aim at teaching the basic skills of the game. Representatives from each of the 17 local area lacrosse programs will be in attendance to answer any questions and provide more information about the lacrosse opportunities in your area.
