Boys lacrosse is one of the fastest growing sports in the U.S, and for good reason. Anyone can play lacrosse, and the speed with which a game moves means there is never a dull moment. According to US Lacrosse, the national governing body for lacrosse in the United States, "Youth participation in the sport has grown over 138% since 2001 to nearly 300,000. No sport has grown faster at the high school level over the last 10 years and there are now an estimated 228,000 high school players. Lacrosse is also the fastest-growing sport over the last six years at the NCAA level with 557 college teams in 2009".
The opportunity for play extends well beyond college as well. In northern California alone there almost one dozen adult men's teams, some of which travel regularly to play outside of the state. Youth lacrosse isn't just another extracirricular activity - it can be a gateway to a lifetime of community and activity.
