A valid US Lacrosse membership is required to participate in any of our programs.
K to 2nd Grade – Our K-2 program consists of Sunday practices run in a clinic style to introduce young players to lacrosse and to develop basic stick and ball skills in a fun and safe environment. Optional games are also offered through Greater Eastside Lacrosse League. The K-2 program is overseen by an experienced, adult lacrosse coach and implemented by experienced high school players. The program will begin in March and run through May.
3rd & 4th Grade – Our 3/4 program is developmental with a focus on fundamental skills and the introduction of team offense and team defense. Players are evenly divided on teams based on skill as determined by player evaluation during the initial practices. Teams practice twice a week starting in February with games on Saturdays March through May. Games are played through Greater Eastside Lacrosse League.
5th & 6th Grade – Our 5/6 program is developmental and focus remains on fundamentals and the development of multiple team concepts. Players will be divided into and A (blue) and B (gold) teams based skills evaluation during the initial practices. Teams practice twice per week starting in February with games on Saturdays March through May. Games are played through Greater Eastside Lacrosse League.
7th & 8th Grade – Our 7/8 program becomes more competitive and fields A and B skill level teams. Players can participate in tryouts at the start of spring season for the A1 level team known as the 7/8 BLUE team. This team requires a higher level of commitment and has an additional financial commitment for local tournaments and travel/tournament back east that is not included in the registration fee. Depending on the number of 7/8 registrations and the skill level of the players, there may be a level A2 team. Otherwise, players who do not tryout or who do not make the 7/8 Blue team will be evenly divided between B level teams based on skill evaluation during tryouts and initial practices. 7/8 teams practice 3 times per week starting in Feb 2024 and play games on Saturdays March through June. Games are played through the Greater Eastside Lacrosse League. Teams will have tournament opportunities in June and July (7/8 Blue only).
Post-Season Tournaments – Tryouts for 3/4 and 5/6 post-season tournament teams will be held in May/June. Our program typically enters teams in 2-4 local (WA & OR) tournaments in May and June. The spring 7/8 Blue team will enter local tournaments and play in one travel tournament. If there is a 7/8 A2 and/or 7/8 B team then they may also enter local (WA & OR) tournaments. Tournaments and travel are not included in the spring season registration fee. Additional fees will be charged based on tournament and travel expenses. Also see Off-Season section below.
