Mini Tyke is for kids born from 01/01/2013 through 12/31/2015.

The Mini Tyke program follows the guidelines as set forth by the Canadian Lacrosse Association Long Term Athlete Development Plan.

The format for Mini Tyke will be:

  • The season will start at the beginning of April and go until the end of June
  • Saturdays and Sundays on mornings to early afternoon
  • All games and practices will play out of Airdrie, Crossfield and Cochrane
  • 3-on-3 during the two 15 minute games
  • Session times - 1 hour
  • 15 minute warm-up / skills - 15 minute game - 15 minute skills session - 15 minute game
  • Running time
  • Players on floor for 3 minute intervals during the 2 - 15 minute games
  • Play the width of the floor
  • Contact Rule is ‘equal pressure‘
  • No referees - coaches manage the floor
  • No penalties - stop when necessary to explain infractions
  • What Equipment is Needed?

The purpose of the Mini Tyke league is to introduce, emphasize, and develop the fundamental skills of lacrosse. The focus of practices as well as games is to promote an environment that encourages participation, skill development, and overall enjoyment of the game.

At the end of the season, a special “Mini Tyke Festival” is held where all teams come together to play one another in a fun and festive atmosphere.

Throughout the season, in order to encourage the development of this environment, there will be no standings for Mini Tyke. Please note that although standings are not kept, standard game results procedures must be followed (ie. sending in the game sheets).
