Q: Are there co-ed teams, or are they gender specific?
A:While the basic premise of the sport is the same, there are differences in equipment and rules. Therefore, girls and boys do not play on the same teams.
Q: When is the season and how long does it last?
A:The actual season runs from March 1 through approximately Memorial Day. However, FRYLAX strives to provide activities on a year round basis.

Q: I hear that Lacrosse is expensive, is that true?
A: Lacrosse fees vary, but the goal of FRYLAX is to provide value for the cost. We do that by having paid, experienced coaches that have many years of Lacrosse experience, knowledge and are certified by US Lacrosse. We welcome parents who want to become coaches to step up to assist, but it is this professional coaching that provides the value.
