Fort Hunt has offered the very popular and fun Boy's Scoopers for over 6 years. "Scoopers" is a low key fun activity for very young (5 or 6 years olds as of preceding Aug 31) players to have some fun with a lacrosse stick while getting in some physical activity and play with their peers.
When: Boys clinics are on Sundays or Saturdays in the Spring running 5 consecutive weekends in April to May. Cost is $75.
Location: Waynewood ES.
Cost: $75 paid during online registration.
US Lacrosse Membership: NOT required.
Volunteers: The more helpers we have at this age level the better. If you do not have experience playing or coaching, we will make sure you are put in groups with coaches that have experience. Please let us know if you're interested by emailing us at
Please put "scoopers" in the subject line.
Equipment: Each boy needs a boy's lacrosse stick. Last year we had a few boys show up with "fiddle sticks" and we soon realized that type of stick proved to be difficult for the boys to learn the game. Dicks, Sports Authority, Lacrosse Unlimited, and Lax World sell sticks for around $40. Sticks can be cut down to 36 inches (from the top of the head to the bottom of the pole) and is the ideal length for this age group.
Supervision: In the interest of creating a very safe environment, we will need a parent/guardian/nanny/grandparent or another boy's parent responsible for your child stay at the field during these clinics; older siblings don't count. With such a large group and Lacrosse games taking place our field can be a very busy place on Saturday. Dropping off your child isn't an option.
