Oak City Summer 2022 Session and Fall 2022 Session

Oak City Lacrosse will host skills and inter-squad competition from August 27 - November 5 on Wednesday evenings (6:00PM-7:30PM in Sept and 5:30-7PM in October) and for 1.5-2 hours on Saturday mornings during the 8AM - 12 Noon time frame.
The 10 week training season is for new and experienced lacrosse players who want to learn lacrosse or improve their lacrosse skills.

Oak City's Fall trainings focus on individual player skill development (technical training) and small group/team skill development (tactical training). Oak City will also try and incorporate some physical performance training (speed/power) related to lacrosse athletic development.

We will train cohorts in the following grade groupings, based on Fall 2022 Grade based training.
Grade 1-2
Grade 3-4
Grade 5-6
Grade 7-9 MS team training. - 7th grade players will be evaluated by coaches and invited to train and play with the MS team or (if they are smaller/newer players) with the Grade 5-6 program depending on their lacrosse skill and their physical abilities.
Most 7th graders will train with MS team and both 7th and 8th Grade players MUST play in Spring of 2023 (regardless of lacrosse experience) with the MS team.

We will train at Blue Jay Point Park for Fall 2022.

For Fall 2022, we regret that we are NOT able to provide a refund to participants once the season has begun, but we will refund any payments made if the Fall season is cancelled before the first training or if you withdraw before the Fall season begins. If the season is interrupted, we will attempt to resume the season once the interruption has passed.

Oak City Lacrosse Fall 2022 Season - Lacrosse Training and Inter-squad Scrimmages

Oak City's Fall Season registration is open! 

All Players MUST have a valid USA Lacrosse membership that expires AFTER the season ends. For Fall 2022, that date is Nov. 1, 2022.   
(link for USA Lacrosse membership on our registration page). 

WE CAP REGISTRATIONS BASED ON THE NUMBER OF COACHES FOR EACH AGE GROUP WE HAVE. IF YOU ARE WILLING TO BE AN ASSISTANT COACH, YOUR PLAYER CAN BE ADDED TO OUR PROGRAM EVEN IF WE ARE ON A WAITLIST. 

FALL 2022         
Who:  
For Returning and Beginner Lacrosse players - Beginners are strongly encouraged to register for Fall if they intend to play Spring 2023 lacrosse.

When: Our Fall trainings will begin on Wednesday, August 31 and end on on Nov. 5. 

Player Cohorts:  Grade 1-2  - Grade 3-4 - Grade 5-6 Grades 7th-9th 

For Middle School Age Players (7th-9th Grade): 

We will train 7th-9th graders together in the Summer and Fall to provide 9th graders with some Fall lacrosse training prior to their first spring season as a high school player.  6th Graders will be evaluated for readiness for MS trainings and will be placed appropriately. Grade 7-8-9 players will train with the MS group unless there's a readiness/safety issue.  In the past, we've encouraged 6th graders to train and play with 5th-6th grade peers, although there are a few situations where a 6th grade player should be playing with his 7th-8th grade middle school teammates.  

Oak City's Fall season focuses on technical and tactical skill development during a clinic-style set of weekly trainings.  We are focused on teaching the game using  the Lacrosse Athlete Development Model that has been developed by US Lacrosse. All Oak City coaches are in the US Lacrosse development pipeline, with a Level 1, 2 or 3 certification.  

Dates for Fall 2022 - Saturday Mornings and Wednesday Evenings at Blue Jay Point
Saturdays Mornings: September 3 (IF WE HAVE AVAILABLE COACHES) Sept. 10, 17, 24, Oct. 1, 8, 15, 22, 29, and Nov. 5th
Wednesday Evenings: 6:00-7:30PM Aug 31, Sept. 7, 14, 21, 28  AND 5:30-6:45PM Oct. 5, 12, 19.  We will suspend weeknight trainings after mid October due to shortened daylight hours.   

Oak City's Fall Season is primarily a SKILLS DEVELOPMENT season. We are offering Saturday morning trainings and Wednesday evening trainings for all players so that players who are playing a Fall sport can participate in our Fall season on ONE of those evenings or mornings and still and play soccer, football, basketball or another sport.

Oak City's Fall season is the time to learn how to play lacrosse or get better at the technical and tactical aspects of the game. We put a large emphasis on developing the stick (technical) skills necessary to improve and become a better player as well as the tactical elements of defense, offense and transition play.  Trainings will end with a small sided or larger group scrimmage for each age group, and we are planning to have a few scrimmages against regional opponents. Our focus in the Fall is skill development and having lots of fun!    

New players and experienced players will be grouped into grade cohorts, and then sub-grouped into skill based groups. (beginners will be grouped with beginners, advanced players with advanced players)

Oak City is attempting to schedule a couple of scrimmages for the Fall against peer programs across the Triangle, but the Fall season emphasis is on skill development, small-sided competitions and scrimmage-style games that will encourage players to develop, explore and master the technical and tactical skills necessary to be a better lacrosse player.  Our Fall season is more like a twice-weekly lacrosse camp than practices and a game schedule. 

Summer: Hot Wednesday Nights - 

For returning players or those coming to Oak City from another lacrosse organization. We'll focus on playing small-sided scrimmages with grade-based cohorts.  
Dates:  Wednesday Nights in JULY and AUGUST - START TIME TBD but expect either a 6PM or 7PM start time. Start time will depend on how many we have sign up. If we're busting at the seams, we'll do two separate sessions to spread out the field and provide a good experience for all players.    

Summer IS NOT for players new to lacrosse, if your son has not played a season of lacrosse with our organization or another organization, DO NOT register him for Hot Wednesday Nights.  We will not offer instructional training for new players and the summer sessions are not appropriate for players who have never played any organized lacrosse.  


Registration for the Fall is live.  


We plan to use the following facilities -
Blue Jay Point Park Address - 3200 Pleasant Union Church Rd, Raleigh, NC 27614
