Field Lacrosse

Field lacrosse is the primary focus of Leverage. Whether it is through our recreational league play, tournaments or camps, our focus is to make field lacrosse players that are skilled and confident at the high school level and beyond.

Community service also promotes networking and good citizenship, both important in the increasingly competitive environment in which our children will need to thrive. Leverage Lacrosse provides organized monthly community service opportunities and encourages team members to participate. In the last year, Leverage members have sorted and packaged food for the needy, painted murals at a local elementary school, and worked on the Santa Monica Mountain Restoration project.
