Our mission is to promote and teach boys and girls the fundamental skills and team concepts needed to play the sport. We are dedicated to instilling the importance of good sportsmanship, a strong work ethic, and teamwork with the help of positive, encouraging coaches.   

North America's first sport, lacrosse is a Native American game played by almost all the tribes in North America. The game was given the name Lacrosse (bent stick) by the French missionaries who first saw it played by the Huron and Iroquois out east. The native names for the game include Stickball, the ball game,  the Creator's Game, the Bumping Hips Game and Little Brother of War.

Adapted by the Canadians in the early 1900's and given the rules we use today, lacrosse is now Canada's national summer sport. The modern game has protective gear and the benefit of new technology (plastic, aluminum), but it still requires the same skills used by the Native players, quickness, speed, agility, cradling, dodging, catching, throwing, scooping and shooting.

In the USA lacrosse is a varsity high school, college and professional sport and it will soon be an Olympic sport.  It is one of the fastest growing sports and combines the skills you already have in basketball, soccer and hockey. Plus, anyone can play lacrosse, big or small. The game rewards coordination, speed and stick skills.

We invite you to come join the Fun!
