Welcome to Kingwood Youth Lacrosse.
Our mission is to teach our players to Honor the Game through "ROOTS". Respect for: Rules, Opponents, Officials, Teammates, Self.
Kingwood Lacrosse program offers something for every boy and girl interested in playing lacrosse. If you are new to the sport or a returning player, we have a place for you on our team. Kingwood’s boys programs run from 1st to 8th grade and the girls programs run from 4th to 8th grade. By the end of 8th grade, our players are ready to jump into High School level play. Kingwood Lacrosse is under the direction of Chris Arnold, Kingwood High School’s Varsity Coach so our boys and girls are put on a path toward High School Athletics.
* Little Sticks, grades 1st-3rd. Your player will learn stick skills and fundamentals of play in a fun environment.
* 4-6 Graders, who continue their stick skills development along with organized games.
The Young Guns, 7th grade and 8th grade Travel teams compete in the Greater Houston Youth Lacrosse Association. The season runs from mid-January to late April. If your player wants to continue to develop their game, we also have a fall tournament team that takes their game to places like University of Texas, Longhorn Shoot Out to compete against teams from all over Texas. This has been offered to our 5/6 and 7/8 grade divisions.
Little Sticks: K-2nd grade. The girls will focus on stick skills and fundamentals of the game. Practices start in early February 2014 and the season lasts until mid-April. There will be periodic intersquad scrimmages and 1-2 play days vs other area teams.
3rd-4th graders: Continued development of stick skills. League play with 8-10 games vs Houston area teams, 1 end of season play day, 1 optional out of town tournament.
5th-8th grade: Two teams are fielded (A&B), allowing the girls to play with and compete against similarly skilled teams around the Houston area. For the 2014 Spring Season, practice starts the second week of January and the Season lasts until the end of April. Each team will play in approximately 12-14 games and participate in 3-4 tournaments. The last years spring season was a resounding success. The A-team was undefeated in regular season play, won every tournament they played in, and won the city championships running away. The B-team was quite impressive themselves making it to the city semi-finals. We look forward to continued success on the field.
