Bring First Steps to your Town

welcome to first steps lacrosse

Founded and written by Gordon Watt, an early childhood education teacher and box lacrosse aficionado, the FIRST STEPS LACROSSE curriculum separates itself from other youth lacrosse programs.

The FSL curriculum refers to leading child phycologists (Piaget, Erickson and Kohlberg) 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 obstacles and foes. 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.
