Practice will include stick work, concept drills, offensive and defensive game strategy, and conditioning. The coaches are knowledgeable and experienced in the sport of girls lacrosse. They are US Lacrosse Certified parents, former/future college lacrosse players, former HHS alumni, current HHS Players and members of past county and conference championship teams. We are always seeking parent volunteers who are interested in coaching - please contact us for more information.
