{Our Minis have 2 one-hour practices per week.}

2023 Info

FCA MINIS is for players in Kindergarten (K), First (1st), and Second (2nd) grades. The Mini season runs from April 17 to May 26. We practice outside twice a week at Wheaton Academy.

Practices are held at Wheaton Academy on the Stadium Turf or Bowl field, from 6:30 to 7.30p two times a week. Players can attend practices as they are able. See the tentative schedule below.

Pinnies will be used for our practices. I will provide them for each player.

EquipmentYes, players need full equipment and a stick. We are currently low on loaner equipment sets, but there are affordable options to purchase at Tama Lacrosse in Naperville. They also have very nice ‘starter/complete’ sticks for sale. Alternatively, you can buy reasonably priced starter equipment and sticks at Dick’s Sporting Goods. Please try on all equipment to make sure it fits comfortably. And, please purchase a stick that has a soft mesh and deep pocket. If you would like recommendations, ask Coach Beth. *All players need to wear a shoulder pad/liner that complies with new 2022 NOCSAE standards.

Cost: $100
