Youth lacrosse is very active

Scripps Ranch Lacrosse Association has some exciting news as it gears up for its upcoming spring season:

Boys grades 1-8
The boys program has a new director, Russ Olsen, a member of the San Diego State University (SDSU) and U.S. Lacrosse Hall of Fame. Coach Russ lead the Scripps Boys Grade 5/6 to the championship game in May 2018, which ended in a tie. Russ has more than 35 years of experience playing and coaching lacrosse, including two state championships with two different teams and multiple playoff appearances. Russ set the all-time scorer record as a SDSU player, which still stands today. The Scripps Ranch Lacrosse Association is very excited to have Coach Russ lead its program.

Boys lacrosse is a cross between basketball, soccer and hockey. The league is a recreational program for all abilities in grades 1 through 8. The season runs February through May. Practices are during the week at Marshall Middle School and games are on the weekend throughout San Diego County. The association held free clinics in October so boys could try the fastest growing sport in America. For more news about the program, visit the Facebook at Scripps Ranch Boys Lacrosse, visit srlax.org or email Carl at cstepnowsky@ucsd.edu for more information.

Girls grade 3-8
The girls fall off-season has been a great success. Girls spring season runs February through June. Practices are at Marshall Middle School and games are throughout San Diego County. Registration opens in December. Check out srlax.org or email Greg Alioto at galioto@laxware.net for more information.
