We are a new board and are working on several things for this season. We have been meeting regularly and have been discussing the following:
Team Spirit Wear Store
Team Equipment Store
We hope to very soon have a parent meeting to be able to give you some clear and concise information about the season and the direction we would like to see the Club head in.
Have feedback? We are growing and learning and want to hear from you, better yet, come help! Feel free to contact your coaches or reach out to us.

We have partnered with a couple of local businesses to offer you shopping opportunities in time for gift giving for the holidays!
BSN Sports has put together a great ensemble of options to deck out not only your player but all the fans cheering on our teams! And every item purchased sends a percentage back to the club to help with fundraising efforts
Lacrosse Wolf has helped us compile a team store for all equipment your player needs to be out on the field. New to the sport? They have new player start-up kits!
A properly strung stick is THE most important piece; the biggest difference between a used $25 stick/head and a new $200 stick/head is how it is strung.
Look to these stores for equipment:
Play It Again Sports - Woodinville
Play It Again Sports - Lynnwood
Lacrosse Wolf - Bellevue
Dick's Sporting Goods - Northgate or Bellevue
Big 5 - Bothell
Generally speaking the following equipment is needed for your player:
Face Shield *
A lacrosse stick **
Goalies need all the above plus chest protector, throat guard for helmet and goalie stick.***
* - Face Shields are currently required per COVID-19 safe to play guidelines
** - An offensive stick is recommended. A defensive stick is an option on the older teams
***Club will provide goalie gear, but players are welcome to use their own if it is per standards for play
Anyone looking to get more involved will receive training...you DO NOT need to have prior knowledge of lacrosse!
Want to help us grow and promote the Club and sport? We have on going expenses we incur to support our teams through goalie gear, balls, cones and other items for practices and equipment for games such as time clocks, score books and various other items that help make game day run smoothly. If you are interested in donating, we have put together an Amazon Wish List. All purchases will be delivered to one of our Board members, Kelly Hennessey. Thank you in advance for your support!

Coach Cartwright instructs players on how to successfully perform face offs and demonstrates different techniques.
Coach Jacob Cartwright has some great advice and demonstrates some easy ways to practice your stick skills and keep them sharp!
It's important to keep up with your skills, even during the off-season! The easiest way to do that is by playing wall ball. All you need is a stick, a ball and a wall.
Coach Cartwright also has some ideas for work-outs during the off-season including videos that explain the drill below:
1. 25 Right Hand One Cradle & Out
2. 25 Left Hand One Cradle & Out
3. 25 Cross Hand Right (Face Dodge, then throw cross handed, catch with stickback in the box)
4. 25 Cross Hand Left
5. 25 Quick Stick Right
6. 25 Quick Stick Left
7. 15 Strong (1) Hand Catch and Cradle
