Fall vs. Spring

Fall Lacrosse

Season Overview
Fall is the traditional “off-season” for lacrosse. Fall is the perfect season for young first-timers to develop their skills and see how they enjoy the game.

Season Philosophy
Learn the game, practice & skill development. Games are for learning.

Season Dates
Beginning of School -> Weekend before Thanksgiving

Practices
1-5 times per week, depending on age group

Practice Attendance
Players are expected to attend ALL lacrosse games and practices. Practices are as important as games. We believe that all youth lacrosse players need ample playing time during both practices and games to develop and to get the most enjoyment out of the game. Please call or email the head coach at least 24 hours BEFORE practice if you are going to be absent.
