U20 (HIGH SCHOOL) DIVISION PHILOSOPHY AND FORMAT

For Players Ages: 

The U20 (High School) Division has been established to promote a fun and positive experience with the sport of lacrosse. This age division is the highest level of competition we offer in our house league system. U20 age athletes use the following format:

We play all players as equally as possible with the goal of teaching the sport and providing a fun experience for all involved. Coaches will make adjustments to suit the more competitive level of play that exists at this age division.

We emphasize fun, positive sportsmanship, and an active environment.

A player draft will be conducted and parents contacted about team placement before the season begins.

The season runs through the months of May and June.

We want to build a love and respect for the sport of lacrosse.
