Each session will focus on specific play – Midfield, Attack and Defense – to allow players to learn more about specific positions and what their role is throughout a game.
A special clinic will also be held for goalies! Goalie-specific training will then be taken onto the field with Fall Clinic players to be put into practice.

The Crosse

Our mission at Big Walnut Lacrosse is to have as many children as possible involved, for as long as possible, in the best conditions possible. We believe strongly in the power of sport to teach life lessons and actively strive to create a positive, supportive, inclusive atmosphere that challenges players to focus on respect for themselves, their teammates, the officials and the coaches. We are “everyone plays,” but we are not participation trophies. We love to win, but we are not win at all costs. We strive for balance between the natural competitiveness of sport and the joy of simply playing.

We recognize, however, the value of a Big Walnut select tournament team as an important steppingstone in our players’ growth for those who wish to play at a higher level.

The mission of the BWLA’s select tournament team is to provide a positive competition-focused experience for players and parents who seek it. While the foundational tenants of our youth developmental program will carry over, the purpose of the BWLA’s select tournament team will be to prepare players for the competition and culture they can expect to see at the middle school and high school levels.

Our club’s name, The Crosse, is aligned with our purpose – to help rising 6th and 7th grade players cross over from the developmental-based youth program to the competition-focused middle school and high school experience.

Our intent is to provide that “travel”-esque experience for players and families who seek it while reaffirming the aspirational goal of playing for the Big Walnut middle school and high school teams.

We have intentionally eliminated tryouts to create a positive atmosphere that recognizes a player’s potential and growth while helping players navigate the internal competitiveness of a high-level select team. Instead, The Crosse will encourage and reward those players who demonstrate the commitment to playing at a higher level. Starting positions and game time will be earned through a combination of attitude, effort and ability, including coachability. The only promise is the opportunity to grow as a player.

While competition will become a focus of the select tournament team, The Crosse will support and encourage players to pursue their passion for the game and develop their skills and LAX IQ.

All Spring 2022 The Big 'Nut 5/6 Boys are eligible to play. Please reach out to us at for a registration link and with any questions.
