Attention - 5th through 8th Grade Boys
St. Katharine of Siena students and parishioners are eligible to play CYO Lacrosse in the St. Anastasia Spartan Lacrosse Program. 

JV program (5th and 6th grade) and a Varsity program (7th and 8th grade)

Practices for the Spartan program typically start around March 15th.

Practices are held 2 or 3 times per week from 4:00 PM to 5:30 PM at the Brookside Field, which is located at Bryn Mawr Ave and Brookside Drive (across from St. Albans Swim and Tennis Club in Newtown Square).  Games will start in mid-April and will run through the end of May (season ends before Memorial Day).  There are typically 1 or 2 games per week and 10 - 14 games per season.  Games are held during that 4:00 to 5:30 time slot.

The cost to register is $100 and that fee includes registration, uniform rental, referee fees, field rental, field equipment.  Players are expected to provide their own sticks, helmets, shoulder pads, gloves, elbow pads, cleats, mouthguard, and cup 

For more information and to register, please contact Paul Evans, at ad@sksparish.org 

 
Playing time in games is generally allocated evenly and the program attracts a wide range of talent.  This allows for more experienced players to gain additional playing exposure and lesser skilled players to develop and gain confidence.

Attention - 6th Through 8th Grade Girls
Spring 2018 will be open to 6th through 8th graders. 

Coaches:   

 

Additional Information:
Teams:     There has traditionally been two teams, a JV and a Varsity.  Varsity will consist of primarily 8th graders and 7th graders who have the experience to play at that level.  The JV will consist primarily of 6th graders and some 7th graders who are at the appropriate level to be playing JV.  There are no “cuts”; everyone who signs up will be on JV or Varsity.  Players eligible are SKS students, St. Katharine parish families and families from other parishes where girls lacrosse is not offered.

Practices:  Practices generally start in the middle of March.  Prior to games starting, the teams practice 3 or 4 times per week.  After games start, the practices occur 1 or 2 times per week.  Both JV and Varsity practice together.  In the past, practices have been held at Carroll and have been from 5:30 to 7:00 PM.  We are working to secure that same time slot this season. 

Season:     Games usually start in early April and run through mid-May.  Teams have participated in a couple of tournaments in the past and we would make that opportunity available again this season.  Some of the other teams in the league are St. Margaret’s, St. Anatasia’s, Agnes Irwin, Radnor, Shipley, etc…
