About The Lacrosse Club of Montclair

HISTORY

THE LACROSSE CLUB OF MONTCLAIR has been growing the game of lacrosse in Montclair and the surrounding region since 1962. This youth program was born out of the successful Montclair High School lacrosse program, as a means of feeding continuing success, and has a proud history of excellence and inclusiveness.

MISSION

Our mission is two-fold: first, to instill the love of the game in the hearts of as many Kindergarten through Eighth grade Montclair boys and their families as possible. Second, to send the strongest possible group of the players possible to the Montclair High program every year. 

PROGRAM

We currently run boys K-8 programs in the Spring season and have additional training options in the off-season.  Through the tireless efforts and generosity of our numerous volunteers, supporters, and alumni, we strive to keep the play local, affordable, fun, and of the highest caliber.  We are a charter member of the New Jersey Junior Lacrosse League, a Chapter of U.S.A. Lacrosse, the national governing body.  We are dedicated to developing youth lacrosse players in a positive environment that mixes the best of timeless coaching values with the latest in training methodologies. 

A trend has arisen in youth athletics where kids select a single sport and play year-round.  This flies in the face of the latest physiological research that indicates the healthiest, most well-rounded way for kids to develop is for them to play multiple sports. Montclair Lacrosse has always encouraged our players to try and play other sports in other seasons. The lessons learned on the gridiron, court, mat, and rink often directly translate to the lacrosse field.

Participation requires enthusiasm, a love of the game, and 100% effort. To fully develop, we expect players to commit to attending all practices and games in their entirety, and keep their coach informed if there are any necessary misses or conflicts.

Never played before?  No problem!  We have a long history of inclusiveness and work to ensure that the bar for entry is very low.  We keep our fees modest and provide need-based scholarships and equipment.  See below for more information on our programs, and contact our registrar with any questions you may have:  info@montclairlacrosse.com
