Our goal is to give our community youth a great lacrosse experience including life-long lessons of sportsmanship, teamwork, and leadership. 

The age groups for each league are:

     - Scoopers (ages 5 to 6) offers a great introduction to the game, providing the basics of lacrosse.  Games will be against other local Scooper teams in a 6-on-6 format with full equipment.

     - Travel Clinic (ages 7 to 8) is the next level of lacrosse.  Players at this level focus on stick work and basic skills, while competing against other teams in the county.  There is no body checking allowed at this level.

     - PeeWee (ages 9 to 10) offers increased competition, while still improving on basic skills

     - Midget (ages 11 to 12) is a competitive league that has playoffs at the conclusion of the regular season

     - Juniors (ages 13 to 14*) is a competitive league that has playoffs at the conclusion of the regular season. 
*Note:  15 year olds and High School freshmen may participate in the Juniors league provided they do not turn 15 years old before September 1 and are not playing on high school lacrosse team.

Practices normally begin in late February and are held at Lindale Middle School and North County High School dependent on county scheduling.  The days and times of practice will be determined by the coaches with team input and dependent upon county scheduling of field use.

Games usually begin in late March or early April and the season ends with league playoffs thru early June.  The location of the games vary… all Clinic and Pee Wee home games are played at Lindale Middle School and home games for Midgets and Juniors are played on any of the high school turf fields.

Equipment The Apaches will provide quality safety equipment and training facilities for your child.  All players must obtain their own equipment--helmet, shoulder pads, arm pads, gloves, lacrosse stick, and cleats.  The uniform will be provided by the Apaches.

There are a number of online retailers offering good deals on lacrosse equipment.  However, to try on and experiment, you can look at Dicks Sporting Goods, Modell’s Sporting Goods, Sports Authority, Play It Again Sports (Baltimore and Ellicott City) or the most comprehensive lacrosse retailer, Laxworld.  Laxworld has multiple locations in Baltimore and Annapolis.  Lacrosse International is an excellent online retailer with good service and prices, www.laxzilla.com.
