STEP TWO: SCOTTSDALE UNITED LEAGUE PLAY
Teaching lacrosse is our #1 priority at every age group. We employ coaches that have played professionally, in college, and coached at the High School level. For many of our player's families, they did not grow up around the sport so proper instruction is paramount. Learn the game, love the game!
#1 QUESTION: Is my 10-11-12-13yr old too old to get started?
