Typically, 7th/8th grade begins indoors in February and head outdoors in March.  The 5th/6th grade begins middle of March.

Grades 5/6:  Any middle school boy or girl interested in learning lacrosse, having fun and making friends! There is a 5th/6th grade boys team and a 5th/6th grade girls team.

For both grade levels, ZMS and ZWest students are combined to form teams.  (We often have enough players to field 2 teams of 5th/6th grade boys and/or 2 teams of 7th/8th grade girls, etc. but in all cases, the teams are combined no matter which middle school you attend).

Lacrosse is “the fastest game on two feet!” We welcome new players who do not have experience and focus on learning the game while having fun. Girls’ lacrosse is different from boys’ lacrosse with separate rules and equipment. In 5th/6th grade checking is not
allowed, in 7th/8th grade checking is modified. (Girls don’t hit each other with their sticks!).
