Adult Lacrosse League Starting In Milton
MILTON -- With triple digit growth over the last 10 years among Atlanta area high school teams, there seems to be little doubt that lacrosse is here to stay.But what about the adults? With Atlanta being a mecca of professionals who have relocated from all over the country, there is no question that there are "displaced" adult lacrosse players among us.
To meet the need of adult lacrosse, Milton's Stars Soccer Club on Birmingham Highway has introduced a men's indoor lacrosse program. It is not "box lacrosse," but outdoor lacrosse played inside."Adults want to play," said Stars' lacrosse director, Richard Thomas. "Many of us played in college on club teams or sanctioned teams, and we miss it. It is a great way to get exercise and bond with guys that love the sport like we all do."
Stars Soccer Club, home to The Soccer Barn, offers an indoor arena and will host the new adult program. Lacrosse teams will play games on Tuesday nights from 7-10 p.m. All games will be officiated by certified LAX umpires.Any player can join by registering online at www.starsLAXclub.com. Players can sign up as a team or as an individual. Registration is $85 per player and includes eight weeks of play, made up of seven games and playoffs.
Thomas said the club is looking for six teams of 11-14 players and would like to expand into other seasons."It's only fair that the Dads out there give their kids a chance to yell at them on the field for a change," said Thomas.For more information, contact Thomas at 404.229.5744 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
