The Park Youth Lacrosse Club was established to introduce the youth of Florham Park, East Hanover and Hanover Township to the great sport of lacrosse, providing instruction and the opportunity to play against other teams and prepare our athletes for high school lacrosse. 

Age Divisions

Boys Lax Clinic (K-1):  An introduction to lacrosse designed for boys (kindergarten and 1st grade). Players will use sticks, gloves (optional) and balls as they learn basic skills such as catching, throwing, cradling and scooping. We do cone drills and simple games to help their coordination and confidence. It is designed to be a lot of fun and good exercise.

Girls Lax Clinic (K-2):  An introduction to lacrosse designed for girls (kindergarten and 1st grade). Players will use sticks, goggles, and balls as they learn basic skills such as catching, throwing, cradling and scooping. We do cone drills and simple games to help their coordination and confidence.
