The program’s emphasis is on basic skill development (throwing, catching, cradling, dodging), teamwork, conditioning, game strategy, and having fun. This league combines the fundamentals of the game as well as competitive play to improve individually and as a team.

An in-person or virtual meeting will be scheduled prior to the start of the season.  Look for more information as we get closer to starting practices.

Games: League games will begin on April 29.  Some travel is required as our team plays Williston, Jericho/Underhill, Burlington, Shelburne, St. Albans & Middlebury.

Equipment needed: lacrosse stick, lacrosse gloves, chest pads (new 2022 regulations, all players), elbow pads, protective cup, and cleats. Helmets are available from the department for the season upon request; priority is given to the 3/4 players.

Start week: April 3rd (weather & field permitting)

All practices for boys’ and girls’ teams will take place on the Prairie Fields behind Essex Middle School unless otherwise communicated.
