All participants will be grouped by both ability and age
Geronimo coaches, including current high school and college players, will follow a disciplined approach to teaching fundamental lacrosse skills. Some areas of focus include: shooting, feeding, stick protection, dodging, defense, etc.
With a maximum coach to camper ratio of 8:1, we provide outstanding instruction in building the fundamentals essential to success at the youth level and beyond.

Geronimo Lacrosse is a youth lacrosse league owned and operated by Collegiate School for boys and girls in grades 1-6. Founded in 1995, Geronimo Lacrosse teaches fundamentals and provides organized team play for area youth. Our mission is to expose children to the fun game of lacrosse while nurturing individual and team skills with a consistent emphasis on sportsmanship. Over 650 players and 100 high school students and adult volunteers participate in Geronimo programs during each spring season.
Our hallmark is the excellent teaching provided by Geronimo coaches, who are volunteers typically with significant college and/or high school playing experience. The schedule for the coming season is posted in mid -November every year. We offer a spring "in-house" youth league for first through sixth grade girls and limited summer travel opportunities for fourth - eleventh grade girls and fourth-ninth grade boys. We offer no league play for the fall or winter.
