"This was an amazing experience for my daughter, she will definitely be playing again next year!!"
"Possibly the most well-run program I have encountered (incl. hockey, soccer, you name it). Exceptional experience. Fun, engaging... you have created something truly unique and special."
"We loved lacrosse. It was very well organized and the coaches did an amazing job keeping the kids engaged."
U9 Pixie Sticks
"Great first experience!"
"Looking forward to next year!"
"Absolutely fantastic. I can't express enough how well run and structured the program is. We just wished it lasted longer! I honestly can't think of anything I would change. I guess other than extending the season! Really looking forward to my daughter being part of the upcoming tournament in KW."
"My daughter really enjoyed it."
"I'm so grateful to everyone involved with this program. To make it possible for my daughter to start her first season even though she didn't make it to the rep team. The skills they were taught were outstanding. It was so great to see the girls come so far."
"Hanna did an amazing job with the girls. She tried very hard to ensure she worked with each girl and encouraged them. Hanna's assistants did an amazing job with the girls. My daughter enjoyed the program - she joined it to see how interested she is in playing lacrosse. I would like to thank Hanna and her team for great season!!!!"
"This is the first team sport my daughter has been interested in and she has truly enjoyed it. From the perspective of a parent who has other kids in other organized team sports (non-lacrosse), I was SO impressed with how well run the program was. The communication was timely and fulsome. Thank you!"
"Hannah is an amazing coach! She brings out the best in all her students, and challenges them at a level appropriate to each learner. She challenges kids, but makes the learning enjoyable and makes every child feel good about themselves."
Sorry for the confusion but if you are registering your daughter for Little Laxers, U9 Recreational or U9 Competitive you will need to click on the U9 Baby/Mini option on the registration portal. We will go through the registrants prior to the beginning of the season and sort them into the appropriate programs. Any girls born in 2011 will also have the option of trying out for the U11 rep team. Again, we will contact all 2011 birth year players to ask if they intend to try out for U11 rep.
If you are thinking about purchasing a new girls field lacrosse stick, please make sure it is on the Approved Sticks and Pockets link below. We would hate for you to spend money on a new stick and then find out you can't play with it.
