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.
I have now received the maroon and white bracelets that read, "Coach Kyle Kirst" on one side and "That's the Mojo" on the other side.
They are ten dollars a bracelet and all proceeds will go towards the Coach Kyle Kirst Memorial Fund.
The bracelets are in and if you would be interested in purchasing one. I have ordered two sizes, medium and large, to fit all wrists.
Please email me at
and let me know your name, how many you would like and what size.
"That's the Mojo" was something you always wanted to hear from Coach Kirst. If you heard these words come out of Coach's mouth, you knew you were doing something right. It was often heard when his one-of-a-kind zone defense was working perfectly- having two shorties, four poles and one goalie work as one. Or when the ball movement on offense was so fast, fluid and effective that it lead to an easy lay-up goal. Or even on the sideline when the players at the end of bench were bringing the most energy out of anyone on the field.
Kyle Kirst is being honored as the "Citizen of the Year" by the Summit Police Athletic League. They will be celebrating the honoree at the annual Summit PAL Golf outing on Monday, September 14th, 2015, at Fairmount Country Club in Chatham, NJ. Coach Davidson and members of the Kirst family will accept the honor at the conclusion of the golf outing.
SLC members are invited to participate in the outing which funds all Summit PAL activity during the year (such as $20,000 of high school scholarship awards for recent graduates). This year the PAL will be making a donation to the Kirst Children Educational Fund.
The overwhelming support to the Kirst family from the lacrosse community has been truly incredible. The family is very appreciative for the love and support from everyone. It is one more testament of the incredible impact Kyle had on all of our lives.
In our note last week we mentioned there would be additional information coming about ways we can all help out longer term for the family. Below is one such way.
Coach Davidson and Steve Ford/Summit Men's Lacrosse Alumni Association have started the Kirst Children Educational Fund.
The Summit Lacrosse Club is contributing to the fund, and we hope for additional support from the members of the Club.
Please see the specific information below and thank you for your consideration and support.

The Summit Lacrosse Club will open registration for the upcoming 2016 spring season on October 30, 2015, 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 will be open from October 30, 2015 to November 30, 2015. Starting December 1, there will be additional fees for grades 2-8 and some grades could even be full. Please register as early as possible.
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. Prior to last spring, 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. 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 grade we will have an additional A and B team that are determined by skill as we have had for the 7th and 8th grades. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org or me.
