Lightning Lacrosse was founded in 1992 to promote the sport of lacrosse to girls and boys, pre-K through 8th grade, in the towns of West Windsor, Plainsboro and Cranbury. The Lightning Lacrosse Club is the primary feeder program for the two West Windsor Plainsboro public high schools and a secondary feeder program for Princeton High School (via our Cranbury participants).
Our program teaches children how to play the game of lacrosse in a positive, supportive environment. We emphasizes teamwork, sportsmanship, respect, discipline and a love of the game. Development of individual lacrosse skills is an important component of our program. As our players mature they are offered the opportunity to play lacrosse at a more competive level against some of the top programs in New Jersey. Our goal is to prepare participants to play lacrosse in high school.
Beginning in March practices are generally held one to two days per week. Practice schedules and locations vary by team and set by the coaches. Our game season begins in April and runs through early June. Games are typically played either on Fridays, Saturdays or Sundays.
Travel is required for away games and tournaments, usually less than a one hour drive from West Windsor. Home games are held in various locations in West Windsor.
