We have several goals at Tacoma Ladyhawks Lacrosse. We aim to make off-season lacrosse:
* NON-EXCLUSIVE - We don't hold tryouts and encourage all players with a passion for lacrosse to join us - We are open to players from all spring season WSLA programs
* IMPACTFUL - We are here to grow a player’s lacrosse skills and help raise their lacrosse IQ, as well as learning valuable life skills and having lots of fun along the way.
* AFFORDABLE - Many off-season programs run several thousand dollars per session. We do our best to make off-season play accessible to as many girls as we can.
Our mission is to get more girls in the South Sound playing lacrosse during the off-season. That said, we are not encouraging girls to give up other sports, we simply want to keep sticks moving and help girls raise their Lax game. This is why we hold Fall Practices just on Saturdays, so girls can then play on their school's sports teams (or choir, dance, drama, etc..) during the week. We believe that there is a huge benefit to girls playing other sports outside of lacrosse like Soccer, Cross Country, etc... not to mention it can be a big part of a kid's high school experience & school pride. We know there are kids who feel that Lacrosse is "their sport", which is awesome to hear, just please make sure to avoid burnout.
