A message from Coach Arnold:

Hello Youth Lacrosse Players & Parents,

Our Kingwood Youth Lacrosse Academy, now in its fifth season, has proven very successful in preparing our young players for competitive high school lacrosse. When your players reach the High School team, Fall Lacrosse Academy becomes Boot Camp, a 12 week preseason preparation program. You've probably seen us out at Riverwood or KHS doing drills, but we also go to the YMCA pool, do strength/speed training at Athletic Republic and add workouts at places like the American Ninja Training Gym.

Here is a fun video that will give you a sneak peak at what the youth players can expect when they join the high school lacrosse team.
