Lacrosse

LCA is pleased to offer Lacrosse for both boys and girls as a spring sports activity. Lacrosse is one of the fastest growing sports in North America and we have had an active program since the formation of LCA.

Saints Lacrosse is a club sport open to both LCA and non-LCA students, but follows the guidelines and principles of CYO sports. No prior experience is required.

We competitively play Northeast Ohio area club teams and participate in local LAX tournaments. Several of our Saints Lacrosse alumni have continued to play in high school and college programs. Our middle school team (grades 7 and 8) participates in the Ohio Middle School Lacrosse Association tournament in Dublin, OH www.omsla.com.
