In 2019 our program evolved to include a wider variety of lacrosse options for players of all skill levels. From in-house rec to new club-level lacrosse initiatives, our program and players saw tremendous growth and success in the past year. Due to the success of these new initiatives, some of these offerings will be expanded to cover more age groups in 2020.

Fallston Lacrosse will continue to provide the opportunity for boys to maximize their potential and have fun at multiple skill levels.  Where registration numbers permit, we will be expanding to three distinct levels of competition depending on player skill and level of commitment:

  1. Fallston Lacrosse Club
  2. Fallston Rec Travel League
  3. Fallston Rec In-House (Softstick (3-4) and Clinic (5) age groups only)

The club-level offering is new to most of the program. This is an initiative that has been prototyped and proven successful at select age groups in the program over the past 4 years. The goal is to provide a community-based club lacrosse experience at the lowest cost possible. Our costs will be less than half the price of most clubs, as we do not have to pay for field space, and we will look to offset the cost further with fundraisers during the season.  Additionally, while there may be additional off-season lacrosse offerings at the club level these should never be viewed as mandatory. As a program we respect that all in-season sports take priority. 

Here is a high-level breakdown of the planned 2020 Fallston Boys Lacrosse offerings:
