Lacrosse Programs

Rose-Tree-Optimist-Logo

Founded in 1987, we are a charter member of the Southeastern Pennsylvania Youth Lacrosse Association (SEPYLA) for boys and the Philadelphia Area Girls Lacrosse Association ('PAGLA)for girls. We field teams organized by grade from third to eight and offer an intramural program for grades 1 and 2. Through teaching and playing competitively the Native American game of lacrosse, we strive to instill in our players a sense of dedication, self-discipline, self-confidence, appreciation for hard work, teamwork and other values expressed in the Optimist Creed. Lacrosse, by its very nature, demands much in the development of the skills to be able use one's stick effectively and in physical effort. At all times, we seek to "Honor the Game" of lacrosse by effort, enthusiasm and sportsmanship. While we do not always "play to win", we always demand that players play like they want to win.
