Lacrosse Club Seeking New Members

The Alameda Lacrosse Club (ALC) has opened its registration for prospective players for its 2016 spring season.

The ALC has eight teams to accommodate different gender and age groups. The Alameda Attack teams are the under-nine boys’ team, under-11 boys’ and girls’ squads, under-13 boys’ and girls’ squads, under-15 boys’ and girls’ teams, and a girls’ high school team. All teams have open registration.

The ALC is also searching for prospective players who have little to no lacrosse experience. ALC will be hosting a series of free Demo Days this fall and winter to train and educate players about the game of lacrosse. If you’re new to the game, Demo Days are a great way to meet the coaches and learn basic stick skills and strategies. If you’ve played before, Demo Days are a chance to freshen up your skills and connect with old and new friends. Demo Days are open to both boys and girls.

The first Demo Day is Saturday, Dec. 19, from 4 to 5:15 p.m. at Harrington Field, at 3420 Oleander Ave. The next scheduled Demo Day is Saturday, Jan. 9, from 2 to 4 p.m. also at Harrington Field.

Parents are encouraged to stay and observe Demo Day. Kids should wear shorts, a t-shirt, sneakers or cleats and bring plenty of water. If you have equipment, please bring it. A limited amount of equipment will be available at the field for players to borrow. Signed medical release is required to participate in the event.

For further information, contact ALC at 864-9772 or email alamedalax@gmail.com.

The ALC plays in the Northern California Junior Lacrosse Association (NCJLA). Teams are located from the Bay Area up to the Eureka area and everything in between. 

The Alameda Attack girls’ high school team won the NCJLA Championship game against the San Jose Extreme on May 9 in a 13-12 nail biter.

Alameda led 9-4 at halftime. They scored two quick goals at the beginning of the second half to make it 11-4. San Jose scored the next eight goals, to take a 12-11 lead with four minutes remaining in the game. 

Alameda tied it up and then scored again as time was winding down.
