SPRING SURGE DIVISIONS
K & 1st Graders
2nd & 3rd Graders
4th & 5th Graders
6th & 7th Graders
This division consists of players in kindergarten through 1st grade. These players are introduced to the early fundamentals of catching, throwing, cradling, shooting, defensive positioning, and offensive dodges. The majority of practices include repetitive, competitive drills that lead up to “small-sided” games that occur towards the end of the season. No formal or drafted teams are formed at this age.
The Walking Helmet division does not exceed 40 players during any given season.
This division consists of players in the 2nd and 3rd grades. These players continue on with early fundamentals (see above) at a more accelerated level. Game IQ is introduced, and we rotate players to all positions to see where the best fit may be. While Bantam practices primarily reinforce skills, gameplay is also elevated with team formation on a modified field (60 yards long by 35 yards wide per US Lacrosse standards). Teams consist of seven players (including the goalie).
The Bantam division is capped at six total teams.
This division consists of players in the 4th and 5th grades. These players are reinforced with fundamentals and Game IQ, along with more advanced skill sets, footwork, and agility. Strategy and nuances are introduced. There is stick contact, but no full-body contact. Teams are drafted, with games played on a full-length lacrosse field. This is 10 vs. 10 lacrosse with substitutes and rosters that carry a total of 21 players per team.
The Lightning division typically consists of six teams.
This division consists of players in the 6th and 7th grades. Its focus continues with the Lightning format (see above) but at a more accelerated level. Here, full-body contact is also allowed during play. This is 10 vs. 10 lacrosse with substitutes and rosters that carry a total of 21 players per team.
The Junior division typically consists of six teams.

Rental Equipment: $85.00
As a courtesy to newer players, you may rent gear. For $85 you will receive a helmet, shoulder pads, arm pads and gloves. You will need to provide your own tethered mouth guard, cleats with ankle support, jock and stick – which are also required (see blog post on how to buy a stick). You will need to return the gear, cleaned in the ways we outline, at the end of season.
Select the Rental Equipment option on the programs tab as you register. Should you not see this option, it means we’ve reached our max on rentals for your division.
Should you not see a registration option for your division, it means that group has reached its limit. So be sure to sign up on the wait list. We strive to place as many players onto teams as possible each season, and you will be notified via email once that transpires.
