Hi all, registration for the 2024 spring season is open now, and we wanted to give you some information with what to look forward to.

When does the season start? 

We are targeting the beginning of practice the week of January 8th, 2024

When and where are practices? 

In January and February, our practices start at Brushy Creek Sports Field and start with Bantam at 5:30, Lightning at 5:30, Junior at 6:30 and Senior at 7 pm on Tuesday and Thursdays. We have practices in a similar format at the same location on Saturdays too, starting at 10 am. Practices for Bantam are 1 hour, and for all others are 1.5 hours.

After February, we move to Leander ISD fields for Tuesdays and Thursdays, with the first practices starting at 6 pm (but may shift days depending on field availability).  Games begin in March and are typically on Sunday afternoons, but may occur on some Saturdays. 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. Practices are dependent on field availability, and the ability to book fields for LISD does not open up until January 1.

When and where are games?

Games will either be at home (Cedar Park or Vista Ridge High School) or on the road.  We play across the greater Austin area, from Round Rock to Dripping Springs.

Where can I find the schedule?

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

What is new for this season?

We are excited to partner with Kristy Kwan fitness to offer conditioning sessions to our players.  For an extra $50, players will get ~8 sessions of conditioning on Sunday afternoons in January and February. This is a great way to get into playing shape and build out capabilities for all sports. To have your player participate in the conditioning classes, simply sign up for the option during registration.

In addition, players have the option to purchase custom Cannons helmet. These are Cascade XRS Pro helmets in Cannons colors. Helmets are available at our cost of $270 and can be added during registration. These are highly adjustable and fit a good chunk of our kids (may be a bit too big for the bantam kids).
