Our Programs

The Little Lacrosse Academy started as the passion project of former Division I athlete and collegiate coach Cat Thoreson (Hofstra ’09). Determined to create a lacrosse program for her two rambunctious toddlers that shared her love of the sport as well as aided in their development, coordination, and social growth, the Little Lacrosse Academy was born. Classes kicked off in Baltimore, MD in March of 2018 and, well, the rest is kind of history!


Whether it’s your child’s first experience with lacrosse or their hundredth, the Little Lacrosse Academy allows them to strengthen their skills in a fun, positive, noncompetitive environment. Every concept we teach is led with encouragement and every accomplishment is celebrated with excitement to build self-confidence. Learn more about our age-specific classes offered year-round.
