Flames K-1

Hotshots "Flames" 
Spring Season 2023
Hotshots Flames 2023 Spring Season is specifically designed for the beginning boys and girls Grades K-1.  The Flames play one day a week for a half-hour skill teaching practice and a half hour game.  All boys must wear a helmet, shoulder pads, arm pads, and gloves along with a mouthpiece and lacrosse/soccer/football cleats (no baseball).
Hotshots primary commitment is teaching the game of lacrosse while providing a great experience and instilling a love for the game. We maintain a positive environment at all times, and our highly qualified instructors help each participant have a great time building friendships, lacrosse skills, and a passion for the game. Our coaches help youngsters build self-confidence and athletic skills while having a blast in our programs.
SYV Flames are under the direction of Hotshots Director Andy Chalupa while Santa Barbara Dons Head Coach John Keogh heads the SB Flames.  Both are among the area’s best teachers of young athletes in Santa Barbara and the Santa Ynez Valley. Coach Andy and Coach John are eager to share their knowledge with the next generation of lacrosse enthusiasts. Our K-1 Lacrosse Program offers a balanced, fun-filled experience for those trying to learn the game.
Santa Barbara Hotshots will play Santa Ynez Valley Hotshots from time to time during the Spring Season.  Each region will host at least 2 games and travel for 2 games.  Games would be scheduled on Saturdays.

All players must provide their own lacrosse equipment to participate in the Hotshots Spring Program.
Hotshots loaner equipment is designed to be used for either those in serious financial need or for "Try Lacrosse" opportunities.  Our loaner equipment is necessary to have on hand so we can come to your school and introduce the lacrosse to new players and help grow the game!
We believe it's important to invest in your son's lacrosse experience and we can help direct you to many affordable options.

In addition to lacrosse equipment, all players must have a molded mouthpiece and lacrosse/football/soccer cleats to be worn at every practice and every game.  Athletic cups are recommended but not mandatory to wear.
