The Rebels Lacrosse Club participates in the Jersey Girl Lacrosse Association (JGLA). It is made up of girls residing in Berkeley Heights, Mountainside and New Providence. Beginners are welcome. Coaches are flexible with other sport schedules however Lacrosse should take priority in the spring!
Mission: No experience is required! The purpose of the program is to introduce young girls to the fundamentals of Lacrosse. We recognize and appreciate the enormous benefits of athletics for young girls. We tailor the instruction based on individual ability because everyone is unique and progresses at a different pace. Our program will promote self-confidence; develop important life skills and provide a competitive environment that will stress individual and team improvement, good sportsmanship and a life long healthy lifestyle.
