Leagues & Clinics

Can't Get Enough Lacrosse?

This is where we will post off season leagues, such as Homegrown Lacrosse, Summer leagues and other opportunties to play lacrosse outside the NLA sanctioned league in the spring.

While the summer programs are not sanctioned by the Northfield Lacrosse Association, the NLA has supported this type of activity by providing email, equipment and some coaching connections. Summer leagues are managed by a parent/organizer who assembled the team, gathers and submits registration and acts as the overall communicator for team schedules. Email northfieldlacrosse@gmail.com if you are interested in helping!
