Lacrosse is growing in our area!

Many athletes looking for a spring sport have found a home in lacrosse.  From ages 5 to 18, boys and girls throughout the region can be found with a crosse (stick) in their hands, cradling a ball or playing "wall ball."    Here's a quick overview of the teams our communities offer:
