A lacrosse stick, goggles, colored mouth guard, cleats and a water bottle are needed for every practice and every game.
There will be optional (but highly recommended) pre-season indoor practices on Tuesdays in January and February at the Southpointe Fieldhouse. The lacrosse season officially begins in mid February with indoor practices at the Recreation Center once a week. Outdoor practices begin in March (as field and weather conditions allow) at McMurray Elementary. Games are played in April and May.
Our practices will take place at McMurray Elementary School field. Practice time and days of the week are dependent on the team.
Most of our home games will take place on McMurray field. Our away games will take place at various local schools up to 1 hour away. Our leagues dictate who we should play, but this can change from year to year.
We will play in at least one tournament, typically in May. We will participate in Youth Recognition/Senior Night at the high school. Fun Day will be on the last day of practice.
