The Lakes Region Lacrosse Club is open to girls and boys of all abilities who reside in Lakes Region towns that do not currently have a youth lacrosse program. Participants include residents of Alton, Center Harbor, Gilford, Gilmanton, Belmont, Meredith, Moultonborough, Northfield, Sanbornton and Tilton. The club is a member of the New Hampshire Youth Lacrosse Association, www.nhyla.org. The club’s home field is the Meadows Complex in Gilford, New Hampshire.

Practices typically begin in late March, with weather and field conditions being the primary factor. Practices are held 2-3 times per week. Seven regularly scheduled league games occur on Sundays and an occasional Saturday, beginning April 8 through mid-June. Approximately one half of the games are held locally and one half require travel to host towns in New Hampshire.
