Do you have kids who are lookng for a fun new sport with which to get involved? The Titans, our local lacrosse league is recruiting, and they want to help kids get back into activites using the best available safety protocols while balancing the need to get kids active and outdoors again.

“Founded in 2008, the Southwest Lacrosse Club (SWLC) 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.

“The club and region have had exciting growth and expansion over the past two years, helping initiate a new West Seattle Lacrosse Club (WSLAX) last season to support high school players within the West Seattle High School boundaries.”

This year, both clubs are working to grow the girl’s program (hosted by WSLAX) and field a full program of teams for 3rd through 8th grade girls. The joint program is actively seeking first-time players from throughout the Southwest region – West Seattle to Des Moines and Federal Way. If your child is interested, please email westseattlelax@gmail.com they’d love to welcome them to a practice to get a feel for the game.

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 early spring, Lacrosse is the perfect complementary late spring sport. The Southwest Lacrosse Club serves youth and high school boys in the general areas of West Seattle, Burien, Normandy Park, Seatac, Des Moines, Tukwila, Renton, and Federal Way.
