4.  How long does the season run? When does it start, and when does it finish?

Our  season runs from mid-April to the end of June every Saturday.  The season ends prior to the end of school.  Typically Peanut and paperweight will play early mornings, Tyke and Novice will be mid morning/lunch time, Peewee, Bantam and Midget will play in the afternoon.  All games are finished before 5pm each week.

Our Weekend of Champs will be played on a Friday, Saturday and Sunday, which hopefully, will create more of a tournament atmosphere for the kids.

5.  My child hasn't signed up yet, but he wants to come to the clinics to see what lacrosse is all about. Is that possible?

It is possible, but there is an insurance fee that will have to be paid in order for the child to be on the floor during the clinics. The fee is $20, and will be subtracted from the registration fee if the child decides to participate in the season.
