Lacrosse is an exciting and dynamic sport. Dating back as far as the 13th century, it is said to be the fastest game on two feet. Lacrosse originated with Native Americans in North America and is currently one of the fastest growing sports in the United States. We are proud to offer girls lacrosse to Burke through an innovative year-round program of clinics, camps, and spring league play. Our program is designed to introduce the game and develop skills for new and experienced players from grades pre-K through 8. The BAC girl’s lacrosse program was started in 2010 at the request of the community that BAC currently serves. It was established to provide a nurturing learning environment that provides fundamental learning opportunities to advance girl’s youth lacrosse. Since its inception in the fall of 2010 BAC girl’s lacrosse has provided fall and summer camps to those interested in learning the game of lacrosse.
The BAC girl’s lacrosse program has the support of the Lake Braddock and Robinson High School lacrosse programs and often works directly with the coaches and players from both high schools. BAC participates with the Northern Virginia Youth Lacrosse League for our spring competitive season. Since entering NVYLL in 2015, BAC has continuously had championship level teams across the age groups.
For the 2020 spring season, BAC girl’s lacrosse program is offering competitive teams at the K-2, 3/4, 5/6 and 7/8 grade levels. Grade level teams are grouped based on experience and ability in order to allow for competitive play within NVYLL. In addition, BAC started a Little Laxer program in 2016 for Pre-K thru 2nd grade players that are first year players, or those not ready to play at the competitive level every week. This program consists of a once-per-week skills session designed for the girls to have fun while learning the basics of the sport.
BAC Lacrosse Program is overseen by Commissioners Tom Sullivan and Christina Eastman.
