Hi all, we are close to kicking off the 2023 Spring season, and with some things still in flux, wanted to give all of you some details

When does the season start? 

We are targeting the beginning of practice the week of January 30th, 2023 

When and where are practices? 

In February, our practices start at Brushy Creek Sports Field and start with Bantam at 5:30, Lightning at 6:00, Junior at 6:30 and Senior at 7 pm on Mondays and Wednesdays. We have practices in a similar format at the same location on Saturdays too, starting at 10 am. 

After February, we move to Leander ISD fields for Mondays and Wednesdays at a similar time (but may shift days depending on field availability) which are scheduled in the middle of January. Games begin in March and are typically on Saturdays but may have some on Sundays. Games are determined in a scheduling meeting across all youth lacrosse associations in the Austin area at the end of January. 

Depending on game scheduling, the season ends around the first week in May. 

Where can I find the schedule?

Once set, scheduling will be found in the Teamsnap app.  For syncing your child’s team schedule to various platforms, see information here: Subscribe to a Team Schedule – TeamSnap Playbook

    Is their an equipment rental option this year? I see the section for it on team snap, but I don’t see any information regarding a pick up day.
