Welcome to NPLC's website!

Welcome to the inaugural season of the New Providence Lacrosse Club!


Formerly known as the Chiefs Lacrosse, we are looking to build on that great legacy. An increase in player enrollment made forming our own town teams possible. This will allow us to focus on player development and help to ensure an enjoyable experience for your children. We also look forward to feeding the New Providence High School lacrosse team with talented players for years to come.


Registration is now open for the 2018 spring season. We are accepting players in grades 3-8 for travel teams. No prior experience necessary to play. Players must first be registered separately through US Lacrosse. To save time during the NPLC registration process, please have your valid US Lacrosse number, insurance and doctor information handy.


The cost is $200 per player. Registration fees include practice pinneys, 11-15 games with certified referees, and a few area tournaments. (Game uniforms will be an additional cost and more information will follow). Registration is open now through January 31.


We have practices scheduled on 2 nights per week in the evenings, with games typically on the weekends. The season will usually start in late February/early March (weather depending), and end in late May/early June.


All players will be required to wear a helmet, shoulder pads, arm pads, gloves, real lacrosse stick (not a children’s fiddle stick), mouthpiece, and protective cup. If you have any questions about these requirements, please ask. Universal Lacrosse in Summit will have all equipment, as well as full kits available for purchase. They are offering us a club discount. Please mention that you are playing for the New Providence Lacrosse Club, and they will give you a 5% discount.


We will also have an online team store where NPLC gear can be purchased for you and your children. This is where we will be ordering the team jerseys.


A clinic will be offered for children in kindergarten through 2nd grade. The clinic is non-contact, and uses soft balls. The purpose is to teach the game to our youngest friends in a fun, non-threatening environment. There will be between 6-8 clinic sessions that run on Sunday mornings, depending on field availability. Clinic cost is $100.


We need parents to help the club in a number of ways: volunteers to coach, team managers and help with administrative duties like scheduling, webmaster, fundraising etc. - No lacrosse experience required, just the willingness to smile, be positive, herd cats and make the NP Lax club a great program for your children!  Please indicate your willingness to volunteer by email when you register.


As a “new” club, we are relying on player lists from the Chiefs and word of mouth to let people know about registration. Please tell your friends we are open, and continue to ask if they have registered. This is a very hectic time of year for everyone, and lacrosse registration may not be on the top of everyone’s list.


We would like to emphasize that we are interested in new players. Children who have never played are welcome. The NPLC is a non-tryout club. Everyone gets to play, regardless of experience or skill.
