STARTING FROM THE GROUND UP.

The Sidewinders youth program starts in the 2nd grade and runs through 8th grade.  Our youth program approach is centered on building strong fundamentals, steady practice habits and repetition necessary to grow. Above all, we strongly believe it is important that our boys have fun to discover their love and passion for the game.

Sidewinders is a proud member sport within Crofton Athletic Council ("CAC").  CAC charges an annual family fee of $85.  This will be added by CAC at the time of registration only if neither your son nor any of his siblings have registered for another CAC sport during the calendar year.

 

Anne Arundel County imposes a $30 fee for all year-round outdoor sports participants this fee will be imposed and collected by CAC as an administrative fee at the time of registration for a SWLX team.

 

Multi-player Family discount: if more than one child in a family (siblings residing in the same household) plays on teams in the Sidewinders Lacrosse Club, the first child will be charged full registration fees and each additional child will receive a 15% discount off the full Sidewinders season registration fee.  The discount will be applied after the registration process is completed and a deposit has been paid for all children in the family.
