Our Programs

Red Stix Lacrosse runs three different specific programs in the Fall, all of which are focused on developing proper lacrosse skills in an educational, fun and constructive environment.  All programs will have practices 2x/week.  All practices will be held at Kedron Elementary school, in Peachtree City, Ga.

Youth Program - REGISTER HERE
This program is intended to provide young players (middle school and below) a local recreational lacrosse program focused on player development. Our youth program is designed to give your daughter a fun youth recreational sports experience that will help provide a strong foundation of lacrosse to help her learn to love lacrosse.  We teach proper fundamentals to make sure she has the best foundation possible -- which will help her begin her journey with the tools to have as much success as possible.  When she begins to see herself having success, this will, in turn, build her confidence -- and the two together will teach her the valuable lesson that whatever she works hard at to accomplish, she can excel at!  

Middle & High School Foundational Program
 - REGISTER HERE:
Since lacrosse is growing so fast in Georgia, girls are joining the sport at different ages.  Red Stix provides this Foundational program to provide these new players with the correct foundations -- for all ages.  Players will develop basic stick skills like ground ball pick-up, cradling, passing/shooting and catching.  From the beginning, players will be instructed and drilled on using both left and right hands.  All of the high school programs in this area have spots available on their roster for athletes who are new to the sport and this training program will give your daughter a leg-up on other "beginners" who have never played before or have not been coached by someone who puts emphasis on how to do things properly.   Learning these fundamentals well will provide the greatest growth opportunity for your daughter as she begins her lacrosse career.  Also, if she has played a season or two and is struggling, or you aren't sure she's really been taught a lot of basic, proper technique, this might be a good opportunity for remediation where there's no pressure to perform (play) in games.  


Intermediate/Advanced Program for Middle & High School Girls - REGISTER HERE:
Many lacrosse players want to continue to play in the off season, but aren't interested in or available to make the commitment of the time/travel/cost of other programs that are available in the Atlanta area.  Red Stix strives to provide a positive and productive environment that is affordable and has GREAT FEMALE COACHING, where kids can continue their development in a competitive setting where they can be challenged to grow but also have lots of fun as they prep for their upcoming high school season in the Spring. This program will be tailored to fit the kids who enroll.  If there's low numbers, it will be intimate with lots of focused instruction for the athletes who do attend.  If it's large, there's opportunity for more full-field experience as well as team tactics instructions on offense, transition, and defense.  Whatever the program ends up being, we will strive to optimize the opportunities for your daughter to experience the most growth and fun as possible in this 2020-21 off-season. 


Our Philosophy

Statistics show that 70% of girls quit playing organized sports by age 13 and the number one reason given is, 'It stopped being fun!'  Red Stix was established in part to reverse this trend in the south Atlanta area by providing an awesome environment for your daughter. 

It is the goal of Red Stix Lacrosse to:

1.   Create an environment where young girls are surrounded by awesome role model coaches who teach a love of sports, lacrosse and learning.  We want your daughter to love the game, love her team, and love her coaches.  We want it to be a fun and positive environment where she keeps begging to come back for more lacrosse.  We don't want kids to get bored from lack of challenge, and we don't want kids to get burned out from too much pressure and commitment.  We believe a perfect balance is somewhere in the middle.

2.   Take a long-term view of player skill development.  Winning games and league titles take a back seat to developing skills and a love for the game.  When your daughter finally retires from organized sports she will absolutely not remember the U11 league championship game, whereas she will definitely remember playing in the high school state championship game.  We are building skills with the end-game in mind -- with the goal of helping her develop into a top performer who peaks at the high school or college age, not elementary or middle school.  

3.  Focus skill development on the right things.  Practice absolutely does not make Perfect.  Practice makes Permanent.  Perfect Practice makes Perfect.  Red Stix teaches proper lacrosse technique from the beginning.  We emphasize a slower approach that takes the time to build the fundamentals the proper way.  Bad habits take years to relearn if they ever are.

4.  Lacrosse skills are formed by repetitive muscle memory.  Red Stix embraces the concept of "10,000 touches".  Practices and games are planned and sized to give each player as many touches on the ball as possible.  Small fields and small-sided games where every player is on offense and defense is intended to provide players the best opportunity to come in contact with the ball as much as possible.  Practices are structured to limit 'standing-around' during and between drills.
