LFH also offers a very competitive summer lacrosse league for high school and college girls. The Fieldhouse is also developing a men's league and pickup opportunities throughout the year.

For young lacrosse players, there is a variety of lacrosse clinics throughout the year designed to help improve their skills and learn the game. Beginner's clinics are offered for players in 1st grade through 9th grade. Our top notch clinicians help players develop new skills and work on the fundamentals, all while teaching them the finer points of the game and pushing them to take their game to the next level.
