New to Lacrosse

Welcome to the World of Lacrosse!!!

I am a new parent to this sport called "Lacrosse". I had never seen a game and don't anything about this sport. So my child joins the Lacrosse world and "Bam", what do I do now? So we have put this set of pages together to guide you thru the process of making sure your child is ready to play Lacrosse.
