We are a diverse group of outgoing lacrosse playing fanatics coming together as a post collegiate women's lacrosse team in Manhattan. Practices weekly include plyos, sprints, and core workouts. We also keep in shape via group runs with a coach and gym workouts with a personal trainer.
We travel to tournaments at least 4 times a year and participate in a spring and fall league.
We are competitive and like to win, but seriously, this is post-collegiate so winning doesn't really mean anything unless we're also having fun. That's why losing isn't such a big deal either.
All skill levels are welcome. You won't be benched at games because of a "lack of skill". Everyone who attends will get as equal amount of playing time as possible.
The commitment required to be part of the team is minimum since this is NYC and everyone seems to lead busy lives beyond recreational sports. If you are unable to attend a single practice but can come to tournaments, great. If you are unable to attend a single game but can come to all the practices, wonderful. If we see you randomly just a few times a year, you'll always be welcome and we'll always be happy to see you as long as you're a good sport.
US Lacrosse Membership is absolutely required to participate in all tournaments, scrimmages, and games.
There is a $5.00 membership fee due upon joining the meetup group. A yearly $5.00 team membership fee is due each March 1st after that, regardless of when you joined the meetup group.
Follow the team on Twitter @centrallacrosse, and get to know Captains Deanna @runbeyonddreams and Althea @atrain1016.
We're also very social and usually have team get togethers off the field about once a month, if not more.
