STEM Lacrosse Activities & Curriculum
for Grades 3-5 & 6-8

Enhance students’ STEM skills with lacrosse activities and curriculum



"After testing out the Lacrosse curriculum, the real world hands-on activities it provided and all of its fun facts, quizzes, and resources had my students all engaged and wanting to become a lacrosse player! If you are not already a STEAM school, then the curriculum provides a detailed overview of key STEM concept areas and learning objectives that can be used to kick start the introduction of STEM teaching methodologies and concepts! The layout was easy, fun, and I even used it for my observation day lesson. It was an awesome curriculum and my kids loved it!"

There will be no failure to advance when students utilize our STEM Lacrosse curriculum in classrooms or after-school programs. Using their heads and the ones atop the provided sticks, youngsters will collaborate and problem solve using lacrosse as the real-life application. As examples, students will:

  • Learn how the position of a lacrosse stick will influence potential energy.

  • Design a piece of technology to track and enhance a player’s movement and performance.

  • Use the engineering design process to produce headgear that is both safe and functional for men and women during play.

  • Construct a scale model of a lacrosse field by applying math concepts of Units and Area.

Cradling is found in our 5E lesson sequence which provides all of the support needed for successful shots towards everyone’s educational goals.
