Sacramento Lacrosse Association completed its inaugural season in 2012, and is itching to get its sophomore season underway. Sac LAX was created to give kids in the heart of Sacramento a place to play lacrosse. While area teams have been established for years, this is the first club designed to serve the areas of Arden-Arcade, Sierra Oaks, Natomas, Downtown, Land Park, East Sac, Carmichael and beyond.
Beyond its club teams, Sac LAX provides free Introduction to Lacrosse Clinics for girls and boys ages 8 to 14 prior to spring registration (open now). In 2012, Sac LAX fielded teams for boys U11 and U13, as well as girls U13. This spring, Sac LAX is offering teams for boys U11, U13, and U15 and girls U13 and U15, as well as a provisional U11 girls team.
Spring practice will begin as early as Jan. 6, and sign-ups are being taken. The boys season begins in late February and the girls will begin playing games that count on March 9.
While the mission of Sac LAX is to develop players, supportive teammates and honorable opponents, Sac LAX’s other purpose is simple; provide an opportunity for kids to play and enjoy the game of lacrosse, to empower youth and give them a sport in which to express themselves, have fun, make friends and stay healthy.
Sac LAX is also dedicated to the principals of the Positive Coaching Alliance, a national non-profit with the mission to provide all youth and high school athletes a positive, character-building youth sports experience.
