The Shining Star lacrosse program is dedicated to teaching young girls the great game of lacrosse in a fun, safe, and positive environment. We believe in helping girls learn about their amazing abilities and capabilities both on and off the field. Lacrosse provides an ideal opportunity to discover the pride in being an athlete, to grow in confidence, and to develop an understanding of dedication and teamwork. Shining Star wants girls to have fun playing the game while making great friendships and lasting memories.
We believe that coaches are teachers, mentors, partners and friends. We want all girls that become a part of the Shining Star family to know that their coaches are there to help them grow into strong lacrosse players and confident young women. We want all girls to feel successful while enjoying the true spirit of lacrosse. They will shine!
Beginners will be introduced to true lacrosse fundamentals in sound but creative ways. They will learn about stick handling, scooping and cradling, passing and catching, and shooting. As they advance they will learn about body positioning and basic team concepts. They will also be introduced to the rules of the game through small group play.
Intermediate players will be able to learn techniques for honing their skills, which include using both hands, draw techniques, and playing different positions. Team play will become more advanced, allowing girls to develop a basic understanding of game strategies.
Beth Serughetti has over 25 years experience in the sport of lacrosse. Beth clearly remembers the joy of picking up a stick for the first time and making that first catch - she's been hooked ever since. It is that type of feeling that Beth loves seeing in the players she has coached over the years: the discovery of success, reaping the rewards of hard work, and developing a love for lacrosse. It is that type of passion that she wants the young girls who join the Shining Star family to experience.
