The Summit Lacrosse Club (est. 1972) is dedicated to promoting the great game of Lacrosse for the boys and girls of Summit in grades 1-8. Our coaches, parents and players are encouraged to have fun while developing the player's character, skill and love for the game.
We strive to maintain a club program where every participant, regardless of initial skill level, has the opportunity to learn the game, develop individual and teamwork skills, and prepare for the high school level of Lacrosse. We strive for equal playing time in grade 3-6 as we feel that the love of the game and the desire to be better is achieved on the field of play.
We value good sportsmanship (both on and off the field) and encourage our players to reach their full potential. We hope our youth can develop into great Lacrosse players and leave our club with fond memories of a program that was the foundation and the inspiration of their continued future playing Lacrosse.
Our season is in the spring from March to June; signups are in the late fall. We offer a 6 week clinic for boys and girls in First Grade, lacrosse instruction for boys and girls in grades 2 - 4, and teams with games played against other town teams for boys and girls in grades 5 - 8.
Please check below for registration and start dates.
Sporting Equipment Drive to Benefit Disadvantaged Youth
On Saturday, May 21, 2016 Summit athletes will hold a New and Used Sporting Equipment Drive from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Soldiers Memorial Field, 5 Myrtle Avenue.
All collected equipment will be donated to the non-profit organization,
Leveling the Playing Field, Inc. to benefit disadvantaged youth across the country.
According to Leveling the Playing Field, Inc., “one in five low-income families are unable to get their kids involved in organized sports due to rising equipment expenses. As a result, underserved children are three times less likely to participate in sports than their peers.”
All donated sporting equipment from the May 21st Equipment Drive will be distributed to youth centers, schools, and recreation league teams in underserved communities across the country. The Equipment Drive will be held rain or shine.
All sporting equipment is generally accepted. A full list of accepted items can be viewed at summitcommunityprograms.com.
Tax receipts will be available upon request.

The Summit Lacrosse Club has opened registration for the upcoming 2016 spring season. We open registration in the fall to give us as much time as possible to prepare for the ever growing number of Summit boys and girls playing the terrific game of lacrosse. We need to understand how many boys and girls we will have for each grade so we can determine the number of teams, coaches, games, etc. As you will see in information posted on our web site (www.summitlacrosseclub.com) registration opened October 15, 2015 to November 30, 2016. Starting December 1, there will be additional fees for grades 2-8 and some grades could even be full. Please register as soon as possible. All information, as well as the fee schedule for each grade is posted on our SLC website Home Page.
Once again the registration will be completed entirely on our web site. All forms and releases will be executed on line which will make the process faster and easier for all involved. We will confirm the uniform sizing and spirit wear ordering after registration.
As in previous years we will offer separate programs for first grade through the eighth grade for both boys and girls. The 1st grade clinic registration will remain open into the winter since they are new to the club (the first grade boys will not require full lacrosse equipment but it is recommended). The 2 to 4th grade programs are primarily focused on the introduction to the game with a strong ‘fundamentals’ focus and an increasing amount of scrimmage experience each year. The 5 to 8th grades continue to focus on building the fundamentals of lacrosse but also increase the number of both in-town and travel games.
Additional details, including the goals and expectations for each team, will be provided prior to the start of the season from both boys and girls coaches for each grade. However, the basic program offering will be the same structure as last year.
The 2016 SLC girls program will again be organized in single grades from 1 through 8th grades. Previously, we combined our 5/6 and 7/8 girls but with our considerable growth in the number of girls participating, we have more than enough girls at each grade to have single grade travel teams which enables us to better accomplish our club goals. The program and games will be essentially the same as the last couple years but we will schedule games with the appropriate level competition for each grade (i.e. we will attempt to schedule 6th grade girls against better competition than 5th grade girls, even though both teams will likely play both single and combined grade teams). The number of players per team and games may have some minor changes but nothing significant.
The boys program will also be structured the same as last year – assuming we have similar numbers of boys registered as last year each grade. For 5th and 6th grades we will have development teams for beginners to lacrosse and those needing extra focus on the fundamentals. These teams will have more fundamental structured practices and will have both travel and in-town games against opponents with appropriate level competition for each grade. In 5th grade we will have two additional even skilled teams with approximately 20 players. For 6th, 7th and 8th grade we will A, B and C teams based that are determined by skill as we have had the past few years. All teams will have a similar game schedule as last year with the focus on scheduling games against opponents with appropriate level competition as our teams.
We are excited about the upcoming season this spring so please help us prepare by completing the registration as soon as possible. If anyone has any questions or comments, please send an email to email@example.com or me.
Thank you and see you in the spring!
