Varsity/JV schedules are listed below. Please check this page often for schedule changes. Due to the nature of the sport and limited opportunities in our area, travel for all divisions/teams is required.

Fee Schedule (all fees include required membership to US Lacrosse):

Varsity/JV: $299 per player (payment plans are offered) *

* We offer family discounts for two or more siblings.

Unlike other rec sports programs in our area, our coaches are not volunteers, rather, they are skilled and certified lacrosse coaches using a curriculum designed by our well-qualified and experienced head coaches.
