New lacrosse club team being formed

 

Submitted by M.J. Davey of Atherton, a board member of the new lacrosse club.

A new lacrosse club, based in Menlo Park and Atherton, is being formed. Called the Menlo Atherton Youth Lacrosse Club, it will compete with clubs in the Bay Area through the Northern California Junior Lacrosse Association.

The lacrosse season runs from February to May. Boys and girls who turn ages 5 to 11 by Dec. 31, 2010, may register. The club is starting with both boys and girls teams under-9 and under-11. There will be a kindergarten-first-grade group as well.

Lacrosse is a game of agility, strategy, speed and teamwork. A combination of basketball, soccer and hockey, lacrosse is fast and easy to learn. It appeals to both girls and boys. Players of any body type, short or tall, an be successful.

Parents are discovering that lacrosse can be more exciting than soccer, cheaper than ice hockey, and not as dangerous as football.
