WHY YOU SHOULD SIGN UP YOUR CHILD FOR LACROSSE
You should try lacrosse for three reasons:
- Lacrosse is incredibly fun. It’s the fastest sport on two feet. It is an absolute adrenaline rush to run across the field with your team members in this quick paced game.
- Lacrosse will make you better at other sports. Lacrosse combines the hustle of soccer, the explosiveness of football, the skill of baseball or softball, and the creative teamwork of basketball. Increasingly college and NFL coaches are pointing to the skills in lacrosse and how they elevate football players.
- LaxCats does our best to create a fun, safe, and positive experience for all of the kids and parents. The Native Americans who gave us the game call it “The Medicine Game” and the belief is that where it is played the people and community are strengthened. We try our best to honor this tradition by creating a supportive and positive environment.
What sport combines the physicality of football, the hustle of soccer, the creative skill of basketball, and a history of grit and honor befitting the original American sport? Boys Lacrosse!
We are committed to a fun, positive experience with a sport we love and think you will too. We have a range of programs for girls from Grades 1-6 tuned to help your kid have a great time learning to love lacrosse and learn how to play.
