Grades 5-6 Girls and Boys Lacrosse at CA sponsored by PACA Youth Sports 

The Parents and Guardian’s Association of Columbus Academy (PACA) is pleased to present CA Youth Lacrosse as a sporting option for 5-6th grade students (girls and boys).

If your CA student is in 5-6th grade and is potentially interested in playing lacrosse, they may register to play lacrosse this coming Spring, 2019.  All interested students and parents must attend an initial informational meeting on January 10. Attending the meeting is not a commitment to play but it is really important to attend the meeting if you think your student may be interested in playing or you know that they want to play.

* Most important is for parents to register for the January 10th meeting by clicking on the google form button above.

Additional information:

SAVE THE DATE: Boys and Girls Youth 5/6 Lacrosse Information/Registration Meeting will be on January 10th at 6pm in the Dining Hall

Parents please bring your lacrosse player with you and your checkbook to pay the registration fee in case your child decides to play. Your son/daughter will need to provide his/her own gear for the season.

Fees to play will be $325 for boys and $225 for girls. All players will also need a US Lacrosse Membership number which will cost $25. Confidential financial assistance is available. We will discuss the US Lacrosse Membership number further at the meeting.
