Founded in 1997 the Livingston Lacrosse Club is a feeder program for boys and girls who wish to play on the Heritage Middle School and Livingston High School Lancer Lacrosse teams and is actively supported and advised by the High School coaches.
In 2013, over 400 Livingston girls and boys participated in the “in-town” and travel programs.
"Why is lacrosse one of the fasted growing sports in Livingston?" asked Club President Eric Rosenson. "Because its a ton of fun to play. Everyone touches the ball and everyone can score."
It offers a sports option for athletes of all weights shapes and sizes.
"Livingston youth lacrosse is a fast paced, safe and fun way to improve any athletic skill and is great preparation for other sports that require strength, speed and agility", Rosenson said.
The club will offer the following to programs for boys and girls in grades K-8 this spring:
- Kindergarten and 1st-graders can participate in "Super Scoopers" division where they play a coed, non-contact form of lacrosse. Skills, including running, scooping, cradling, passing and shooting, are developed in an atmosphere where fun, team work and self confidence are stressed. Lots of fun drills and games will keep the kids moving through the high energy one-hour sessions. Super Scooper sessions begin in mid-April and continue into June.
- Boys and girls in grades 2-5 can participate in in-town programs where Livingston children play against one another. As they progress in age and skills, Travel Team opportunities become available.
- Boys and girls in 6-8 grade can participate in travel teams against other local towns. These programs begin in March and everyone plays.
New for the boys, Grades 6-8 teams will contain up to only 20-22 players in order to maximize playing time during the Games.
New for the girls, the Club will be adding an “Elite Team” chosen from the best players in their respective grades to play other elite teams.
"This new program will allow our most athletic and driven players to test themselves at the highest levels of competition", said Rosensen.
Also new for 2014, winter training is available to Livingston's youth as the Club is now working with Evolution Lacrosse and Building Blocks Lacrosse to offer pre-season training lessons. These will allow participants to learn the sports’ fundamentals before the Spring Season while more experienced players can get in shape in order to start the season ready to play.
Registration for the 2014 season and the winter programs will begin the first week of November and will close for grades 2-8 at the end of December.
After December, registration is based on space availability and there is a late fee.
Super Scooper registration continues until the end of March.
Practices for Grades 2-8 start in early March and the Season runs from April until early late May and early June.
