In-house Recreational Youth Lacrosse Divisions:
STARTERS 6U Division (Pre-K - K): This is a fun, instructional, non-competitive, skill oriented division with no weekend commitment. The Starters division is designed to introduce very young children to the game. They will practice in a clinic format and we introduce the basic skills of catching, throwing, shooting, cradling and scooping. Protective equipment is not worn in this division therefore, we use soft lacrosse balls instead of real lacrosse balls. Each participant does need to have their own stick. We also use smaller 4'x4' goals. This division does not start until mid-April, when the weather gets warmer, and ends prior to Memorial Day weekend. There will be 4 total Starters division clinic sessions on Tuesday evenings 6pm -7pm. The player fee for the Starters Division is $50.
The following divisions have separate teams and play games. The season begins in Mid-March and finishes in Late-May before Memorial Day weekend. The season starts with an instructional clinic where players are evaluated by the coaching staff for each division. The player evaluations are then used to assign players to in-house recreation teams with goal of creating balanced teams and therefore fun and competitive games. Our in-house recreational teams will consist of a mix of players of all experience and skill level. Teams will be announced on our website in mid-March prior to the first week of practice. Boys teams typically practice on Monday and Wednesday or Thursday. Girls teams typically practice on Tuesday and Thursday.

Coaches from each team in each division will be working together to structure practices in order to enhance development and the overall experience for players at different skill levels.
Practice day for any division is not guaranteed. Changes may be made based on the coaches availability . If specific days are important to you please let us know when you register.
