Lacrosse is a spring sport and our program is open to girls and boys, grades K-8th and runs for 15 weeks. We offer 2 programs based on a player's school grade and age (read more below), but NO EXPERIENCE IS REQUIRED AT ANY LEVEL. As a result of grants from US Lacrosse and donations from friends, we are able to loan equipment to our players. Our home field is Berry Lane Park, a beautiful brand new turf lacrosse field in Bergen Lafayette. (if you're looking for more information about us, check About section)
Spots are filling up for our travel teams now, returning players must reserve spot by December 1st. Individual team meetings are being scheduled for January 2018, all players and a parent/guardian are required to attend.

Visit our Equipment page for information about required equipment for different teams and borrowing equipment. Equipment Loans are FREE but require a deposit- the deposit will be collected when equipment is distributed and returned when equipment is returned (end of season) and in the form it was received. Unfortunately the deposit has become a necessary step - as equipment lent out is not returned. We do not loan out certain pieces of required equipment including, cleats, mouth-guards, cups and athletic attire.
No player will ever be turned away for financial reasons, view our Scholarships page for more information.
By registering with Jersey City Lacrosse, players and parents agree to abide by our Code of Conduct.
