COAST CITIES — The California Youth Lacrosse leagues, for both boys and girls, is looking for young athletes.
The cost to participate in the California Youth Lacrosse leagues is $300. What has traditionally been known as an East Coast sport is now finding a comfortable home in the West, according to Rory Doucette of Adrenaline Lacrosse. According to Doucette, youth participation in the sport has grown more than 500 percent since 1999 with major expansion at both the high school and college level. There are more than 500 college programs in action, and 200 of them are on the women’s side.
