The Powhatan boys youth lacrosse program is open to both new and returning lacrosse players. The primary objective of the program at this level is to develop important skills, know the rules, learn to work together as a team, cultivate a love for the game of lacrosse and most importantly, HAVE FUN!

Powhatan Lacrosse fall ball is here to stay! Fall lacrosse is a great time for beginners to learn the game, and for advanced players to continue to build on their abilities and learn new and advanced skills. Most of all, our fall lacrosse programming is meant to be fun! We want our players to leave the field with a smile on their face every day, and learn life lessons that they can apply on and off the field. We have a great group of coaches who cannot wait to share lacrosse with all of you!
In the event we do not have enough players to field teams we will transition to a clinic format.
