Boys lacrosse is a contact sport. Girls lacrosse is not a contact sport.  6th grade and under boys focus on skill development and play with minimal physical contact. 7th grade and older play allows appropriate physical contact.

Do I have to reside in San Francisco to play for the club?

The club is open to players who reside in San Francisco, or attend school in San Francisco.

We often hold a "bring a friend" day for one practice a year, at the coach's discretion, but you must be a registered player to participate in league games.

How is playing time handled?

For players placed on "A" teams, we strive to provide equivalent playing time over the course of the season, while for players on all other teams, we strive to provide equal playing time per game.
