Registration is open for the 2021 Spring Lacrosse Season!!!
We are not collecting money at this time. We wanted to open registration now to get a better idea of how many teams for each age group we will have for the upcoming season. So please get your kids registered as soon as possible. For those who chose to receive a credit from last year's aborted season, you will see the amount you have been credited at the completion of the registration process.
When we are more certain that there will be a season we will be asking for payments.
The youth league is planning on starting practices in the beginning of February and the HS season will be starting up in early April.
Hopefully the numbers will start to go back down soon and we can start a season of lacrosse. In the meantime, watch the training videos and work on your stick skills and get out there and recruit more players!!!
For four nights beginning on 1/19/21, we will be putting on a Youth Clinic. They are free and open to players K-8 and in the Bothell Feeder pattern. The clinics will be on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6:30 to 8:00 (1/19, 1/21, 1/26 and 1/28) at North Creek Sports Field #4. High School Coach Jacob Cartwright will be organizing the drills and we will have several coaches as well as high school players out there running the drills and instructing.
The clinic will be run with the current COVID guidelines and restrictions in place (face mask at all times, no more than 4 in a group and those groups will stay together the whole time) to keep everyone safe. If you have not obtained a face shield for your helmet, you can get from LacrosseWolf or Dicks Sporting Goods.
If your player is interested, please visit the registration page, choose your team and click on the Youth Clinic button to sign-up.
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 will partner with local businesses to provide Spirit Wear and Gear.
Our Spirit Wear store is back open for a limited time (closes Jan 26th). If you missed out on buying something before the holidays, now is your chance!
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!
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!
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
Registration has been opened! We are asking people to sign-up, but not pay yet so we can get an idea of the number of players/teams we need to plan for for fields, coaches, etc. Assuming we will have a season and it has been confirmed and scheduled, we will then ask for payment.
Coach Cartwright and Gabe give you some great drills you can do to improve your defense skills anywhere on the field.
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: https://youtu.be/7sKKMHAg4zY
Check out some great plays by offense as well as defense and get EXCITED for lacrosse!!
Open to all boys K-12 in the Bothell High School feeder pattern.
