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 first week of June.     
 
 
Q.  Is this a Hudsonville Public School sport?

A.  Lacrosse requires you to have a stick, helmet, shoulder pads, elbow pads, gloves, cleats, mouthguard, and protective cup.  While we do not currently offer equipment at any group, most of this can be found locally at Athlete's Connnection, DICKS, Play It Again Sports or online at eBay, Squadlocker, and Craigslist.  Also Hudsonville Youth Lacrosse offers a player exchange for parents to sell used lacrosse equipment.  Visit our home page to visit the player exchange.  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.
