Registration for the Newton Youth Lacrosse spring season is currently open.  Open to boys grades one through eight, the program focuses on the fundamental development of lacrosse players in an environment of good sportsmanship and appreciation for the game.   “Learn to play U9” teaches the basics,  at older levels there are opportunities to participate in a more competitive inter-town league as well.  We welcome all new players, regardless of age (it’s never too late to start!).

Happy Friday

We had so much fun this past Sunday evening at our annual BOOwen Halloween party!  Thank you to all of the volunteers and everyone who showed up to have fun.

Our next event is our Mystery Dinner this coming weekend.

We’re still looking for a couple of volunteers to help us organize the Spring Raffle.  The time commitment varies over the next couple of months, but it can be shaped based on your availability.  Most of the volunteer effort is around coordinating prizes whether its with teachers, families or businesses.
