YORK, ME —If you play lacrosse north of Boston then you have probably heard of North Shore Lacrosse. With over 1000 players from middle school to post collegiate levels, they are who's who in boys and men's league development in Massachusetts. Directors Craig Roderick and Brian Wylie have over ten years of experience in lacrosse league management and a combined thirty-five years in Sports Administration. “Being a York resident, I am proud to fill a void of opportunity for local lacrosse talent. We recognize the importance of offering a highly supervised and professionally managed league to the development of players in this area. With a great response already, we hope to build on that momentum and encourage this vital outlet for play,” said Roderick.
School and town recreational lacrosse programs have begun to spring up everywhere in the region over the last few years. Most schools and towns offer local programming via volunteer coaches during the traditional season from March to May. However, for the sport to really take hold there must be an outlet for players that want more during the off-season. “Seacoast United has developed NH into a nationally recruited soccer hotbed. We hope to do the same with lacrosse here in the years to come,” Says Roderick.
Lacrosse programming will begin at Seacoast United's York facility located at 1050 US Route1 in York, Maine just after the New Year. Southern Maine Lacrosse will be operated by North Shore Lacrosse and information about offerings can be found on their website at www.northshorelacrosse.com or by contacting Craig Roderick at firstname.lastname@example.org or 978-473-2533.
