The Girls Middle School Lacrosse team is looking forward to another successful season. Learning new skills along with live game action in practice will be instrumental in developing the player’s fundamentals throughout the season as well as giving them feedback with results they can relate to immediately. Working on the finer details of the game, establishing roles in practice and in games will help further them as players as we face a challenging ISL and Prep Private schedule this Spring.
The coaches are looking forward to seeing each and every player develop as the season progresses.
