BSA offers lacrosse programs for boys and girls ages 7-14.
Our fall lacrosse program runs from September through November.
Our winter lacrosse clinic happens on two Saturdays in February.
Our informal spring lacrosse program runs from March to June.
Q: Where do I find the season schedule?
A: Our trainings are held on Sunday afternoons. Older players, ages 11-14 may be asked to play in games or tournaments that would require an occasionally Saturday during the Fall or Spring season.
Q: Where are the trainings held?
A: Our trainings are held at the International School of Brussels (ISB).
Q: What should I do if my child is sick or otherwise cannot attend the training or a game?
A: Coaches are asked to share their contact information with team parents. Please let your coach know if your child cannot make his or her training session or game so that the coach can plan accordingly.
Q: Is it necessary to stay with my child during games and practices?
A: BSA requires a parent or guardian to be present at practices and games for all children age 8 and under. For children aged 9-12 you must accompany your child to the field to be sure that a coach is present before leaving your child. You must also be there to pick them up following the practice or game.
Q: What equipment does my child need?
A: All equipment (except mouthguard) is provided to those who need it. Boys ages 11-14 will be assigned full protective gear for the season as well as a stick. Sticks are available for girls and our Juniors (boys age 8-10). Players will not be allowed to participate without a mouthguard.
Q: How shall my child dress for trainings?
A: All players should come to training is athletic attire. This includes sport shorts, sweat pants, sweatshirts, etc. Lacrosse is a fast sport which requires a lot of running. Jeans and winter ski jackets make it difficult for the child to participate and wear the proper protective gear. Cleats are preferred but not necessary.
Q: What is the graduated registration fee system?
A: There is a discount if you register early. Because of the significant administration effort required to cater for late registrations, this fee gradually increases as the start of the season approaches. More information can be found on the registration page.
Q: Who are the coaches?
A: The BSA lacrosse coaches are dedicated volunteers (often parents of team members or ISB student athletes) who offer their time to support BSA in the mission of bringing quality, community-centered sports programming to any child who wishes to play - regardless of the child’s background or ability. Volunteer coaches participate in a volunteer coaches’ orientation prior to each season and are supported by the BSA Lacrosse Director and Executive Director in managing any concerns. BSA relies on the dedication and generosity of our volunteer coaches and we welcome new parents to get involved - even if you haven’t played in years or have any experience with the sport! Our Volunteer page offers more details about supporting BSA as a volunteer coach.
Q: Who should I contact if I have concerns or questions?
A: We are here to support you and answer your questions. You can contact our Lacrosse Director, John Bernards at firstname.lastname@example.org or our office at email@example.com.
