Starting in 2023 The Calgary Roughnecks are sponsoring the U7 divisions in CDLA. All players will be getting a stick and a Jersey to keep at the end of the season.
U7 - Lil Roughnecks is for kids turning 4,5 and 6 in the calendar year.
The U7 program follows the guidelines as set forth by the Canadian Lacrosse Association Long Term Athlete Development Plan.
The format for U7 will be:
Please consult ALA Regulation 15.15 for full U7 rules.
The purpose of the U7 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 U7 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 U7. Please note that although standings are not kept, standard game results procedures must be followed (ie. sending in the game sheets).
