Lacrosse Leagues

Why Join the LaxPros Lacrosse League?

  • We play 3v3 or 4v4 and use 4 foot by 4 foot goals.
  • Small goals challenges shooters to “Aim Small Miss Small”
  • Small space = More touches = Better stick skills
  • Small Enclosed Field demands quicker thinking, faster non-stop play, and total engagement
  • All players use short sticks which demands improvement in their defensive footwork.
  • Coaches are some of the best in the state
  • Players love the energy and intensity

High School Game Times

Players and parents will receive an email by Thursday at noon telling them the hour in which the player will be participating that Sunday. We make an effort to facilitate carpooling but in some cases players may have to stay for the full two hour

HS Player Groupings

We place players in a group which most benefits them and the entire player pool. We take into account both age and ability in order to ensure competitive, safe, and fun games. It is essential that players attend in their assigned hour to avoid too many or too few players in any one hour
Players will not be allowed to participate if they come to the wrong hour
We are constantly adjusting groups and re-evaluating players which may result in different start times for players from one week to the next
