This dynamic, fast-growing sport has roots in the cultural traditions of the Native American Iroquois people. We’re excited to share it with kids of all ages at the Y. In our comprehensive lacrosse program, kids learn stickhandling, throwing and catching. Classes start with the basics and work up to more advanced techniques for older kids. Our lacrosse instructors use a skills assessment to find the right class for your child. All classes are grouped by age and ability. See the River Valley Y sports schedule
