Boys Lacrosse Information

The Spring 2003 boys lacrosse season begins on Wednesday March 19, 2003 and ends on June 7-8 with our attendance at the Greensboro Youth Lacrosse Festival. 

Practices/scrimmages are held each Wednesday night at the SunCom Indoor Soccer Center (www.habitatforsoccer.com) in Asheville from 7 PM to 8:30 PM during the initial part of our season (March 19 - April 23).  We then hold practices outdoors at the same time (location of practices to be determined).

We have a program serving middle school age boys and a program serving high school age boys.  This is a full contact program following rules and regulations as set forth by the NCAA. 

Instruction will be provided by volunteer players from the Asheville Lacrosse Club.  Parents will volunteer to act as team coaches.

Players will be required to either purchase or rent equipment (8 sets of rental equipment are available).  To purchase your own gear visit the only store in Asheville, NC selling lacrosse gear:  Play It Again Sports (phone 828-235-6543) - - or - - purchase your gear from Bacharach Lacrosse .  If you purchase from Bacharach tell them you are with the Asheville Youth Lacrosse program to get the set of gear we recommend purchasing.  Expect to pay approximately $200 for your gear.

All players will be required to become members of US Lacrosse (www.lacrosse.org).  Cost is $18 for those under the age of 15 and $32 if you're 15 and over. 

This program is completely volunteer driven.  If you are a parent and would like to volunteer your time and energy to help improve this program please contact Tom Heck (tom@tomheck.com).

The purpose of the youth lacrosse program is to:

  1. Have fun.

  2. Learn and practice "life skills" such as teamwork, leadership, patience and understanding.

  3. Learn about the game of lacrosse and learn the basic skills necessary to play the game.

We support the approach to coaching youth sports presented by The Positive Coaching Alliance.
