5th-8th Grade Boys Tournament Teams

What is the Program?

The program is designed to introduce boys, who are currently enrolled 5th-8th grade and live in the Anthony Wayne School District, to a higher level of lacrosse that will prepare them for organized lacrosse that continues into high school. Our volunteer parent coaches use the philosophies from our high school lacrosse programs to develop the skills necessary to play the game of lacrosse at an advanced level throughout the season -- cradling, passing, shooting, defense, etc.


The travel season begins in Early January and ends in late May. Season will end prior to Memorial day weekend.
