Coaching Approach
The teams of the Snohomish Boys Lacrosse Club are intended as instructional programs with the primary goal of teaching kids how to play Lacrosse and have fun while learning and playing the sport. There are no team tryouts to join the Snohomish Boys Lacrosse Club. All players will have an opportunity to play and are expected to work hard, respect each other and the coaches, improve their Lacrosse skills over the course of the season, and most of all have fun playing Lacrosse.

Sportsmanship
Our programs operate under the rules and guidelines established by Snohomish Lacrosse Club. Our goal is to provide a healthy environment for the youth of our community to learn and enjoy the great game of Lacrosse and to advance their Lacrosse skills while teaching them key values like honesty, integrity, and respect. This can be accomplished when our parents, coaches, and league officials work closely together to teach fundamental Lacrosse skills as well as leading by example, practicing good sportsmanship, and being respectful of the competition.
