The MetroLacrosse fall lacrosse season is designed for players that are new to the sport of lacrosse to learn the fundamental stick skills and have a fun experience learning how to play the game, and for current MetroLacrosse participants to continue playing the sport and improving their skills in the off-season.
Boys and Girls Youth Fall Season (3rd-8th grade)
Fall season is 6-7 weeks long with practices twice per week as well as 2 Saturday morning events (games or clinics with a local college).
