1st & 2nd Grade – With a focus on FUNdamentals, our 1/2 team is a great introduction to developing skills, team play, and a love of the sport of lacrosse. At this age, we’ll play on a US lacrosse approved short field to increase opportunities for all players to get the ball and be involved in play. This team will practice twice per week and have games and play days/tournaments on Saturdays.

Girls 3rd & 4th Grade – The 3/4 team is the next step in developing positional and team play learning as well as increased stick skills for your young athletes. While still utilizing a short-field, 3/4 lacrosse adds goalies and traditional rules and game play into the mix. This team will practice twice per week and have games and play days/tournaments on Saturdays.

Girls 5th & 6th Grade – At this age, our teams transition to a full-sized field and learn more advanced skills and team play concepts as they progress in their development as lacrosse players. This team will practice twice per week and have games and play days/tournaments on Saturdays.

Girls 7th & 8th Grade – Our 7/8 team continues to develop superior skills and game IQ as we prepare these girls for the move to high-school lacrosse. This team will practice twice per week and have games and play days/tournaments on Saturdays.
