The Needham Lacrosse Clinic is designed to provide the region's premier development experience for youth lacrosse players.

Whether our participants have never picked up a stick before or are playing for high level club teams, we customize our curriculum to take any level and launch it higher.

Our award-winning staff is comprised of high school varsity coaches, Needham Lacrosse Alumni, and current Needham High School student-athletes.

Our culture is positive, our climate is engaging, and our model is competitive and fun.
