What is Lacrosse?
Lacrosse is a spring sport played on a field +/- 100 yards long and 60 yards wide. The season typically starts at the end of March and last until the beginning of June. In both the girls and the boys game, there are 4 positions on the field, a goalie, 3 defense (w long poles for the boys), 3 mid-fielders for the boys and 5 for the girls and 3 attack.

The Drexel Hill Raiders Lacrosse program is a competitive, travel lacrosse program that offers separate teams for both boys and girls. For the boys we offer a Kindergarten / 1st / 2nd and 3rd / 4th grade clinic program for those just starting out and travel (local) teams for those in 3rd - 8th grade. For the girls, our clinic covers those in 1st / 2nd grade and the travel teams from 3rd - 8th grade.
The boys teams compete in the South Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Lacrosse Association (SEPYLA). The girls teams compete in Philadelphia Area Girls Lacrosse Association (PAGLA).
