Welcome to the Berks Catholic Lacrosse Club......

A brief history.....we started 7 years ago as Holy Name Youth Lacrosse. Our program originally consisted of a boys team (grades 5-8) and a girls team (grades 6-8) with about 50 players total. Since that time we have doubled our numbers and last year added a 3/4 level for boys and girls. Our teams remain competitive year after year at the youth and high school levels. We are very proud to be among one of the few lacrosse programs in the county. Our philosophy is simple, respect the game and have fun. We guarantee that once your child picks up a lacrosse stick, there will be no turning back. We have a top notch team of volunteer coaches that are very committed to the program.  Without them, this club would not be possible.

We are looking forward to another great year of Berks Catholic Lacrosse.  Remember, LIVE IT, LOVE IT, LAX IT..............Go Saints!
