We expect high participation again this year so it is important that you sign up as early as possible. Each age group will have a registration quota, and once the quota is reached, additional registrants will be waitlisted.

Boys Lacrosse Program

We are committed to creating an environment where players of different ability levels can learn, develop and compete. We focus on teaching the fundamentals, furthering player development, competing with sportsmanship, and developing lacrosse players to have a love and passion for the game.
