Not only is lacrosse one of the oldest team sports in North America, having originated among Native American tribes as early as the 1100’s, it’s now the fastest growing youth and collegiate sport in the United States. Annandale Youth Lacrosse has introduced thousands of local boys and girls to lacrosse over the years and is now gearing up for the 2016 spring season. Annandale Boys Commissioner, Keith Dalton, says:
“Lacrosse is the perfect sport for young athletes because it offers the best of many other sports wrapped in one: you see the team building of football, the field play of soccer and strategy of basketball, plus it’s so fast the kids and their parents just love it. And ultimately that’s our goal, for our players to have fun!”
Youth lacrosse is a spring sport in Northern Virginia with teams beginning to form soon. Annandale Youth Lacrosse assessments begin January 30th — these are NOT tryouts — every AYL player makes a team. Assessments allow organizers to place players with comparable skills together so they can learn lacrosse as a team.
Practices are held twice a week with boys’ games on Saturdays and girls’ games on Sundays. The Annandale program serves girls in grades K-8 and boys from ages U-9 (up to 9 yrs old) to U-15. You can register now on the Annandale Youth Lacrosse website at annandalelacrosse.org.
