welcome to first steps lacrosse
Founded and written by Gord Watt, a retired teacher, lacrosse coach and early childhood educator; the FIRST STEPS LACROSSE curriculum separates itself from other youth lacrosse programs.
The FSL curriculum refers to leading child psychologists (Piaget, Erickson and Vygotsky) to develop a “child centered” program based on the needs of the child. Children are involved in imaginary play and dramatic situations, taking on roles to overcome challenges. Role play reduces inhibitions and motivates children to play.
Our aim is to provide each child greater physical abilities, self-esteem, confidence and willingness to participate in athletic activities. We want to give every FSL child a better opportunity for an active and healthy life.
If you believe in our mission and share a passion for early childhood education and the development of physical literacy through the sport of lacrosse, start a First Steps Lacrosse program in your community. Call today!
