4v4 Summer League

4v4 - Boys - Summer



Andover Area Lacrosse Association 4V4 Summer League

AALA’s 4v4 is a league for the players. Kids need to enjoy the sport they play and seek to improve by playing more. This league's focus is FUN! This is an opportunity to develop lacrosse skills in a fun, low-stress environment. We encourage healthy competition in which kids play hard and play to win but we ask that players conduct themselves appropriately and exhibit good sportsmanship. We ask the same of parents and others who come to watch. Adults, please set a good example for the players.
