Southwest Lacrosse Club: Welcome, new West Seattle Blog sponsor!

Today we welcome the Southwest Lacrosse Club as a new WSB sponsor. Here’s what the Titans would like you to know:

Founded in 2008, .the Southwest Lacrosse Club is dedicated to the promotion, organization and development of lacrosse in the south end. Our mission is to teach lacrosse fundamentals and good sportsmanship, while emphasizing the importance of discipline, teamwork, and physical fitness. Players of all skill levels have the opportunity to develop their game, and we will prepare each athlete for the next level of play.

Lacrosse is one of the world’s oldest sports, with its roots coming from indigenous peoples of North America, including what’s now the Northeast U.S. and Southeast Canada. It is now the fastest-growing youth sport in the U.S. Lacrosse is a mashup of hockey, soccer, and football. It’s fast, dynamic, physical, and exciting to watch. For athletes playing soccer or football in the Fall, Lacrosse is the perfect complementary Spring sport.

    Is LaCrosse a co-ed sport?  I see boys and girls in the photo.

      There there are separate boy and girl teams.  Except the little ones is coed.Come to a throw around, lots of fun!

    Based on limited experience with my granddaughters in high school and college, there are boys teams and girls teams, but no co-ed teams.  The rules and equipment differ somewhat by gender.

    The Southwest Lacrosse Titans has boys and girls teams. It is not co-ed. The picture included is of the 7/8 boys team, two of the players have super long hair. Boys and girls lacrosse teams have different rules regarding contact. Boys lacrosse is full contact, girls is very limited contact.

    My long-haired boy played with a LAX stick for five minutes Saturday and now thinks he wants to play. This feels weirdly karmic that this pops up here today.

      ODROKU, Awesome! My son is one of the hair farmers. Please contact the club if you have any questions. It’s a great sport and super fun to watch from the sidelines. Great and solid group of parents too.

    Hooray for lacrosse!  I hope it gets as big out here as it is back east, where I grew up.  Can’t wait to go watch some games and support the local kids!

    There are two girls teams — one for 3rd and 4th graders; the other for 5th and 6th graders. The girls play a non-contact version of lacrosse, with far less gear. My daughter has been playing for two years, and loves it. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
