Lacrosse is a spring sport for all teams.
High school teams are organized, are 100% funded, and operate as school sports through Hudsonville High School and all questions about the high school teams should be directed toward the high school athletic department.
Youth practices will begin indoor at various indoor facilities, and when weather permitting we practice outdoor. The youth games/tournaments start early April and end the last week of May.
Hudsonville Youth Lacrosse also offers summer travel lacrosse. Summer travel lacrosse will start the first week of June and will go through the first week of August.
Q. Is this a Hudsonville Public School sport?
A. Hudsonville Area Lacrosse began as a community based non profit organization formed to give kids aged first grade through eighth grade the opportunity to play lacrosse. The boys high school teams are Hudsonville Public School JV and Varsity sports. The youth programs remain non-school sports. The high school programs are open to Hudsonville Public students.
Q. Why is there a fee to play, when other sports don't' have a fee?
A. The youth program is not funded by the school at all. The high school programs are run by the school, but funded primarily by player fees.
Q. My player is new, what equipment will he/she need?
A. Boys lacrosse: Short lacrosse stick, shoulder pads, elbow pads, gloves, cup, cleats and helmet. At the high school level it must be a yellow helmet and blue or blue/white gloves. At the youth level it is encouraged to have a yellow helmet, but not necessary. If you are purchasing equipment for a 7/8 grade boy, then you are encouraged to purchase an adjustable yellow helmet and blue or blue/white gloves because he will need them in high school.
