Our fall program is laid back while still building lacrosse skills, playing scrimmages, and having fun. Both the boys and girls programs meet twice during the week. First practice focuses on improving lacrosse skills and the second practice will be age group scrimmages. There are no official games and no practices on the weekends. The program is usually 6 weeks long starting in September and ending in October. In the past, Loudoun County Parks and Recreation have assigned us the following fields, Hampshire Park for the boys and Belmont Ridge Middle School fields for the girls. Flat cost of $150.
Which club should I register my child with this Spring?
