Summer Sessions

This summer we will be offering several FREE sessions.  This is a great way to try lacrosse for FREE before the fall season.  Full gear is not required for this program.  

Click HERE to RSVP so our coaches can plan sessions accordingly.  Don't forget to bring a waiver.

We hope to see you this summer!



The 2023 season is the second year in our uniform cycle.

Kits consist of a reversible jersey, shorts, and a shooter shirt.  Cost is $95 and can be added to your registration.  =========>

Practice pinnies (below) are also available for $30.

Our goal is to get at least two years from each uniform cycle, so be sure to purchase a size to get through two seasons--and remember the equipment worn underneath.

During the ordering process, you will be asked for your top 3 jersey number choices. Number assignment will be based on seniority, and a first-come, first-served basis by team.  Click HERE for sizing chart.  The club office may have samples as well.  Contact [email protected].

What IS Box Lacrosse?

Box is played 6 v 6 off the boards of a hockey rink, with smaller goals, bigger goalies, no long poles, tighter space and a much faster transition combined to equal increased skill at all levels.  It’s more like basketball and hockey than it is field lacrosse.  The benefits of Box lacrosse to the developing player is well documented and evident with Denver University’s box oriented offense domination in the NCAA, winning the National Championship in 2015.  What is less talked about is that Box, when played properly, is actually safer than field lacrosse, which is a great change of pace for field-only players...and a lot of fun!
