OUR ANNUAL CALENDAR
Dragons is open to BOYS & GIRLS in grades K through 8, at all skill levels. We offer free trial sessions and free loaner gear for beginners. Dragons plays year-around, but players can choose to play in a single program, or play all year. We have 4 seasons.
FALL: The Fall Season starts each year in September and ends in December. The purpose of the Fall Season is three-fold. First, we want to give as many new player access to the sport of lacrosse as possible. Second, we want to provide intermediate players with an opportunity to continue improving their stick skills. And third, we want to provide a competitive option for our more experienced players.
The Fall Training program consists of 60-minute to 90-minute small group skill training sessions that take place once-a-week. Fall training works on building strong fundamentals and includes throwing, catching, cradling, ground balls, shooting, dodging and footwork. Fall Training is the ideal program to prepare players for joining a team and playing competitively. Free loaner gear is available, and new players are welcome to try a session for free.
In the Fall we also devote an entire season to teaching advanced players the game of box lacrosse. Box is a form of the game that originated in Canada and has become a very valuable teaching tool. Our box program consists of a weekly practices and games.
WINTER: Winter season usually starts in December with initial team practices. Teams start to compete in January as part of the West LA Winter Season, which starts on the first or second Saturday of January and ends with Championships during the last weekend of February. During the winter season, teams have 2 practices a week and one game every Saturday. Beginners are welcome to join for the Winter Season.
SPRING: During the Spring Season Dragons BOYS play in either the LAYLL or SCILL leagues, and GIRLS play in the PELA league. Teams have 2 practices a week and a game on either Saturday or Sunday. Spring Season starts in early March and runs until the end of May. Beginners are welcome to join for the Spring Season.
SUMMER: In the summer we run a training program for players in K through 8th grade with sessions on the field or beach twice a week in June and July. We usually take the month of August off.
