Westfield Lacrosse Club ("WLC") is an all-volunteer non-profit organization dedicated to providing boys and girls with opportunities to have fun playing youth lacrosse and have positive development experiences.
WLC coaches are largely parent volunteers from the greater Westfield community. WLC will also contract with local high school coaches to run clinics and coach some of our older teams (to better prepare them for high school). When needed, WLC will contract with private coaches to assist our volunteers. Generally, WLC's passionate volunteer coaches have a lacrosse background (most high school or collegiate) and all are enthusiastic about the development of town youth lacrosse. By the time they are coaching 5th grade, WLC coaches are Level 1 Certified by USA Lacrosse, participate in concussion safety protocol training, are background checked, are SAFESport Certified, and participate in league-specific rules and regulation courses.
We are affiliated with USA Lacrosse and strive to 'Honor the Game' by teaching and encouraging girls and boys to learn the game and develop their skills in a positive environment that promotes teamwork and good sportsmanship.
We understand that children actively participate in other sports throughout the year. WLC encourages children to play seasonal sports and suggests that children playing multiple sports in a season give priority to their in-season sport.
WLC continues to seek people with time and talent to contribute, especially coaches. Please contact a member of the boys or girls programs below if you are interested in helping.
