We are pleased to let you know that we have extended the deadline for avoiding the $75 late fee until 1/22, but registration spots are filling up fast!

Also, please be aware that we are utilizing the wait-list this year to ensure that the teams are filled with an appropriate number of players.  If the team that you are looking to join is full, please join the waitlist.  We will be monitoring these closely and, where warranted, we will open up additional spots (adding a second team, etc.).  You do not pay while on the waitlist, only when your child is placed on a roster, but it is on a first come - first serve basis.

Thanks and please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Coaches are some of the most influential role models in kids' lives today. Are you up for the challenge?

With the explosive growth of the sport of lacrosse around the country, the need for knowledgeable, experienced coaches is greater than ever before.
