Lacrosse 101

Getting Started

Interested in having your son or daughter play lacrosse?

This is the place to learn about the game, the association programs and what it takes to enroll your child in the fastest growing sport in the US.

Here you will find several sections, covering the basics  of the game, what type of equipment is needed to play, and information about seasonal play and leagues (ELC teams and programs).  New for parents this year is a document from US Lacrosse called "Raise Your Game" which explains the key rules of the sport.   If your son or daughter is interested in getting even better, check out the Events section at the top of the site that highlights some great info on clinics, camps and seasonal traveling teams.  

Finally, we have added a frequently asked questions (FAQ) section to cover the basic questions.

Let us know if we've missed anything, and we hope to see you on the fields!
