As a foundational level for first time intro players we offer a fun small sided lacrosse program that is virtually free to play and fun for all ages (even adults so parents lets get out and play with our kids).
The entry level requirement are only a stick and a passion for play. So no helmets or pads and we play with a soft ball 3v3 or 4v4 and a smaller goal as an option to open the sport to lower cost and higher access and engagement.
Beginner level of play
Focus on basics and developing a love of the game
Difficult to have high level training
North County Lacrosse supports the two scholastic leagues in our state. North Sound Youth Lacrosse (NSYL) as well as Washington State High School Boys Lacrosse (WSHBLA) and Washington Schoolgirls Lacrosse Association (WSLA) that are recognized as the state equivalent with WIAA. In addition we are looking to grow our own internal county league North County Lacrosse League (NCLL) that offers the same experiences year round for those players interested.
These teams are a full field season spring focused for school age athletes that are preparatory for college and other scholastic level dedicated development play. Currently we are excited to eventually partner with and grow to plant club programs in each of the county school districts similar to how each high school team in Bellingham.
2-4 years of experience
Focus on individual and team skill development
Incorporates all aspects of our player development model
With a dedicated community of players and athletes, we hope to build on the foundations to give those players looking for the highest level of opportunity to play we can provide. Eventually we would like to take our U18 teams to play in tournaments across the country and open possibilities for higher level recruiting both in college and post collegiate in the US and Canada.
We would love to take one of our high school age teams to travel to Holland and abroad and show case the athletic and personal character development that the Lynden, Ferndale, Blaine, Nooksack and Mt Baker areas are already well known for in other sports.
4 years of play experience select try outs.
