Lacrosse is the fastest growing sport in the country and we invite you to join the fun! We are a non-profit, volunteer, lacrosse club league for boys in the 1st - 8th grade. This is our 12th year of offering kids a chance to learn and play the fastest, most exciting game on two feet! Most of our players move on to play for the very successful South Lyon Unified High School Team. Home games are played at Volunteer Park. Practices are held at Brummer Elementary. Our away games are held in surrounding western suburbs.
We are all about our boys having fun and learning the many skills of Lacrosse. This includes learning various positions along with hand eye coordination, physical fitness, speed and agility. Most of all it is about creating an atmosphere for kids to learn team play and sportsmanship.
Our season typically starts Mid March and runs until early June. We are a member of the Metro West League and play some of the best teams in the area along with participating in two prestigious weekend tournaments/festivals with teams from all over Michigan. Practices are determined by the coaches and average 2-4 times a week in the evenings. Games are also 1-2 days per week with most being held during the weeknights.
In 2015, we added an instructional program for 1st and 2nd graders! This allows our younger players to learn the skills of the game and participate in one or two games against surrounding schools. This is a non-contact group and geared toward learning the skills of catching, passing, scooping and cradling. Helmets (any type) will be required and t-shirts will be provided. This will allow kids and parents to ease into our sport with minimal time and investment. The season is expected to start in early May for this group with practices twice a week.
And for those that want to extend their season we offer a Summer Travel Teams. For 2014 we formed two teams that played some of the best teams in the Midwest. It was a great experience for everyone and we expanded the program again in 2015 to include additional age groups.
Why should your son should play lacrosse? Bottom line...TO HAVE FUN!
