Hillgrove Youth Lacrosse Divisions:

Our Recreational ("Rec") lacrosse program is offered to all boys who are in grades K-8.  Hillgrove Boys Youth Lacrosse is a feeder program for Hillgrove High School, but we accept players from other districts; especially when other programs are not offered.

The Hillgrove Boys Youth Lacrosse rec program focuses on teaching the fundamentals of the game with emphasis on teamwork, sportsmanship and having fun.  

We rely heavily on volunteers to take on a variety of support our program. In addition to coaches, we ask families to help with a variety of duties to keep the program running smoothly.
