Our club is committed to provide a safe environment as we "return to play" the great sport of lacrosse.  We have been monitoring and implementing guidelines set by multiple organizations and want you to know just some of these that we have followed.

    • There is a risk of contracting COVID-19 while participating
    • We will separate participants by 6 feet to the max extent possible
    • We will not share equipment
