TRAVEL-THERE WILL BE TRY OUTS IN MARCH FOR THOSE INTERESTED.  TRAVEL PLAYERS WILL PARTICIPATE IN THE HOUSE PROGRAM INCLUDING PRACTICING WITH THE HOUSE PLAYERS AND PLAYING IN THE HOUSE SCRIMMAGE. TRAVEL PLAYERS WILL PLAY IN AN ADDITIONAL GAME AGAINST OTHER TOWNS EVERY WEEKEND.  

ONCE YOUR CHILD HAS MADE A TRAVEL TEAM, A SUPPLEMENTAL TRAVEL FEE WILL BE ASSESSED. $100*

If numbers do not permit us having both house and travel teams for our Lightning and Junior programs, there will just be a travel program.

* The NLA Board has decided to increase our fees this season.  For reference, our program has been significantly less than neighboring towns including towns like Stamford and Monroe with similar demographics.  These new prices are a step up but we are still 28% less expensive than neighboring programs on average. Additional funds will be used to attract high quality coaches, purchase equipment, and enable us to provide more financial aid furthering our goal of making lacrosse accessible to all throughout our community.

As always, financial aid and equipment assistance is available.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

America's First Sport
If you haven't already seen it, the following link will take you to a terrific documentary video about the origins, history, growth, and future of both men's and women's lacrosse. It is well worth the fifty-five minutes it runs.

http://vimeo.com/64675548

The documentary does, however, omit one fascinating detail. James Naismith, credited with inventing basketball while teaching at Springfield College, was a Canadian and a lacrosse player. So it's not that lacrosse is a lot like basketball ... it's that basketball is a lot like lacrosse.

Enjoy.
