CRANFORD, NJ - Registration is now open for the 2016 spring season of lacrosse—one of the fastest growing youth sports in the country.
This year, the Cranford Lacrosse Club is excited to announce an expanded program for first grade boys and first and second grade girls. Players will have an opportunity to learn the sport of lacrosse in a fun environment. This affordable, in-town league will offer one weekly session from April through the end of May. During each one and a half hour session, players will gain individual and team skills in environment that will include training followed by a small-sided game on a shortened field. For the girls, the rookie league requires a girls lacrosse stick, mouthpiece and eye guard. Boys must have a boys lacrosse stick, helmet, mouthpiece, shoulder pads, glove and arm pads.
This new in-twon rec league also presents a great opportunity for parents/guardians who are new to the sport to gain more knowledge as “rookie” coaches who can help out with drills and oversee games. You can sign up for this when you register your child.
For children in higher grades (2nd-8th for boys and 3rd-8th for girls), Cranford Lacrosse Club offers teams that compete against other towns in the surrounding area as well as in one or two tournaments per season.
To participate, all players must have a valid US Lacrosse number, which can be obtained by joining US Lacrosse at wwww.uslacrosse.org or through the Cranford Lacrosse Club’s online registration process, www.cranfordlacrosse.org.
The Cranford Lacrosse Club is a non-profit, all volunteer organization established to introduce the youth of Cranford to the great sport of lacrosse, providing instruction and the opportunity to play against other teams and prepare our athletes for high school lacrosse. The Cranford Lacrosse Club welcomes and encourages multi-sport athletes.
