believe that youth lacrosse should be a fun experience that
teaches the kids the fundamentals and a love of the game.

fundamentals, and love for the game are our purpose and
mission. We believe that by promoting
Fun For Lacrosse that our
kids and program will grow within the community.

2004, we had about 100 boys 3rd, 4th
and 5th grade boys participating; in 2005 we grew
to 280 boys and girls from K through 8th grade.
Today, our program’s 2011 season rosters comprised
almost 500 boys & girls playing on 16 teams in grades 2nd
through 8th grade plus boys & girls clinics.
are fortunate to have the support of the entire community of
lacrosse coaches, parents and extended families, middle
school and HS coaches and players who return to volunteer
their time to give back to our program.
