How many practices a week and where. 1st/2nd graders have one practice a week and 3rd/4th grade and up have at least two practices a week and they can be in different locations depending on our agreement with Frisco Parks and Rec each season. Currently our practice field is BF Phillips Fields off of 4th Army Memorial Dr. and Timber Ridge on the west side of Frisco.
How many teams are there at each age group?Typically, we have 3 or 4 teams at each age group. We have 1 or 2 at the girls age group as we are growing that program. There are approximately 50 or more teams at each age group in the entire Dallas Metroplex, so there is a very consistant range of competition in the area.
What is the level of play at each age group? Level of play ranges from beginner to many years of experience. Players are placed on a team according to their skill sets and they advance as they grow with the sport. Beginners can start at the high school level and quickly ramp up to have the ability to play college level lacrosse.
When and where are games played? Games in the fall are played on Sundays with some games hosted at our home field, BF Phillips and some will be away at local towns fields. Fall ball is set up this way to make sure all programs in the Dallas Metroplex are incorporated. All teams travel to this central location to play. Frisco may have some home games in Frisco the fall if the DFWL (DFW Youth Lacrosse League) needs our support to add more field space.
Games in the spring are played both home and away. This means away games are played in the town/city/school you are playing against. Games in the spring can be any day of the week but most are on Saturday and Sundays.
