Good evening everyone,
My name is Neil LeBeau. I am the President of North Branford Youth Lacrosse and will be leading our K-2nd Grade Co-Ed Future T-Bird team. We are set to begin our Clinic Series this weekend. We have a small group and have decided to combine the boys and girls. (9 boys & 3 girls) We will run our Future T-Bird Clinics on Sunday mornings from 10 AM to 11 AM until mid-June. I will be joined each week by current boys & girls players from our High School programs. We will also have periodic “Special Guest” coaches. The goal for this age group is to learn the basics skills of lacrosse, get outside and have some fun!
Just a bit about myself. I’ve been in North Branford for almost 20 years and have been involved in coaching and volunteering with NBYLAX for almost 10 years. I have one daughter currently in the youth program and two daughters who have graduated from our youth program. (A Junior the High School team and freshman in college who’s playing at the collegiate level) My son is also freshman on the High School team as well. This time of year there’s a lot of lacrosse going on in my house! I’m so excited to meet your sons and daughters and look forward to meeting all of you.
Visit nbylax.org and search for the Team -> Co-Ed K-2nd Grade -> Future T-Birds (Here you can see the schedule, roster and this is where we will post information specific to this team)
Please reach out to me if you have any questions. This is a really laid back approach to introducing your kids to the sport of lacrosse…the most important thing is that they have fun!
Thank you all so much!
