Creeks Youth Lacrosse Program is a not-for-profit recreational and travel club program focused on promoting and organizing the play of lacrosse for boys & girls, from kindergarten through middle school, at all levels of core competencies and skill levels. We offer multiple lacrosse offerings throughout the year, but our primary season, Spring (Feb. - May), brings many newcomers, at all age levels (K - 8th), that join us for their first season of lacrosse. So, if your son or daughter has never played before, he or she will not be alone in trying lacrosse for the first time.
While we always intend to field competitive teams and play well, we pride ourselves on developing players for longevity in the game of lacrosse by teaching the core fundamentals of the game and instilling in our players a love for the game. The transition from "newbie" at the beginning of the season to what could be called a "lacrosse player" at the end of a season is impressive. Hopefully, we will be able to count your son or daughter in for that transition!
