Did you hear about the sport from a friend or neighbor and want to find out more?
First, you're in the right spot. Missoula offers programs for boys and girls at the youth level as well as high school aged players.
Lacrosse is the fastest growing youth sport in the country right now. Don't worry if your kid has never played, as most kids here haven't so your child is not at a disadvantage. A lot of kids have only picked up a stick in the last year to two, and every year we add more new kids to the program. You can visit US Lacrosse for a lot of resources including girls/boys rules and membership. This is a great resource for parents and players that would like to learn the game.
To play for Spartan Lacrosse you must be a boy who attends Sentinel or Loyola or a girl that attends Sentinel, Loyola or Big Sky. If you are from an outside area, please send an email to email@example.com for more information as to the team you would play for as we have a boundary document in place. This document is located on the MHSLA website Montana High School Lacrosse League (mthslax.org).
Youth players have a separate program called Missoula Youth Lacrosse. Please visit their website or on Facebook.
