The team is growing every week! Want to see what all the hype is about? We are gearing up for a great spring season with a Varsity and a Junior Varsity team. This is the time to give lacrosse a try if you’ve never played before and the time to improve your skills if you’re a veteran player. Are you a water polo player or a soccer player or a cross country runner? All of those sports translate well for lacrosse and the seasons don’t conflict.
