Spring (and Winter) Lacrosse Registration is now Open
All Are Welcome. The Charlestown Lacrosse & Learning Center has opened registration for its main Spring season & for its Winter skills seasons. The CLLC teaches the great game of Lacrosse to a diverse group of boys and girls, grades K-8th. New players are always welcome regardless of skill level and scholarships are always available. We believe in the power of Lacrosse, as it is the great equalizer in the sporting world. You don’t need to be tall, strong, fast or big to be successful and it’s a communal sport where anyone can find a niche and be a productive member of the team. As a program, we promote the following core values in everything we do: Teamwork, Responsibility, Community Service, Patience, & Effort. Please call (617) 242-9328 or visit our website (www.charlestownlacrosse.com/registration) for more information and to register today!!!
