WHY PLAY LACROSSE


FASTEST SPORT ON TWO FEET

Lacrosse is the fastest sport that is being played on two feet. It is an absolute adrenaline rush to run across the field with your team members and participate in

such a fast paced game!



HELPS TO BE MORE DYNAMIC IN OTHER SPORTS

The speed of the game and all the basic skills you gain through lacrosse will improve your skills in other sports. Lacrosse is so versatile that you train you whole

body and all its abilities.



YOU ARE PART OF A TEAM

Lacrosse is a special sport in which team building is very important. This allows players to realize the importance of unifying and working together towards a common goal. Everything a player does on the field impacts their entire team. Being a part of a team allows you the opportunity to deal with different personalities, make new friends, learn leadership skills, and so much more!



THE POSSIBILITY FOR SOMETHING SPECIAL

Lacrosse is a very unique sport that allows players to do something new and

different. Combined with the incredible growth in our area, there are a lot of opportunities to play in High School and beyond that you might not find as easily in more common sports.



IT IS A CHALLENGE
