MADLAX SCOOPERS & RIPPERS CLINICS

Beginner & Intermediate level CLINICS for boys in PK-4th Grades (5 years old minimum) in SPRING!


Each spring we typically offer both a Virginia Program and a Maryland/DC Program for the Wednesday and Saturday sessions.  This spring we have to adjust and go at one Virginia location since MD and DC do not allow lacrosse yet due to Covid restrictions that limit groups on fields to 25 people.   Fortunately, Virginia allows for larger groups so we can hold our clinics! 

These clinics are for Boys in PK-4th grades of all levels and experience.  PK boys must be 5 years old, athletic, tough and have parents who are sure they can handle it emotionally, mentally and physically.  4th graders must play in Rippers Spring League for more motivated and experienced players.  The more advanced 1st-4th grades in the Rippers clinics will be invited to play up in the Rippers Spring League!

Virginia Program:
Wednesdays on Turf Lighted Ken Lawrence Park in Tysons/McLean, VA
Wednesdays: 4/7, 4/14, 4/21, 4/28, 5/5, 5/12, 5/19

Maryland/DC Program
***IMPORTANT***
Please sign up for the McLean, VA spring sessions since currently Montgomery County and DC do not allow more than 25 person per field. So, sadly, we cant offer lacrosse...yet.  If covid rules open up we plan to rent Landon School and offer clinics again there as in the past!
