Canby Youth Lacrosse


Our Mission

We are committed to providing our youths with positive experiences in a team-oriented sport. The game of lacrosse is a way for youths to learn valuable life lessons that allow them to grow into fine young adults. It is not our mission to try to develop every youngster into a college or professional level athlete.

I want to try it!

Looking for a spring sport that involves a lot of aerobic activity? An activity that does not get rained out? Something with minimal contact (very little at the young youth levels)? A sport where everyone plays and there is simply no way to avoid the action? A sport where most activity is during the game, not during warm-ups?

Is your child very interested in lacrosse, but you don't know how to "try it" without the risk?

Let us know! We'll loan you a stick and a few balls to get started. We'll even help to connect you with kids you may know who are already playing! We do have a limited supply of loaner gear for first year players for the season too!

I have questions...

If you have any questions, please email Curtis Nelson. An email asking questions does NOT in any way commit you to anything.

Looking for Sponsors

Are you interested in sponsoring our program? We have an exciting thing going already. However,  there are lots of expenses. We have covered the "core" costs already, but we need more help. We want to acquire practice jerseys, extra sticks, more balls, and practice goals/targets.

We already have some sponsors and are incredibly grateful for their generosity. If you would like to sponsor our team, please visit our sponsors page.
