Spartan Lacrosse Club was founded in 2000 to give the boys in Springfield Township and Chestnut Hill an opportunity to play “the fastest game on two feet”. The goal of the coaches and the program directors is to teach the boys the fundamental skills of an incredibly exciting sport while having a lot of fun. The modest aspiration of the club is to enable those skills to help the boys make and play on their high school teams. Instilling respect for: The traditions of the game, coaches, teammates and opponents is an overarching objective of every practice.
The Club has experienced steady growth throughout its 20 years. Many players have gone on to play in local high schools, some have gone on to play in college and even professionally. (Including alumni who have won national championships in college and world championships at the pro level)
