The spring has brought tremendous growth and excitement to the Dragons girls program. Participation has grown from 12 players in 2015, to 60 players in 2016. We are fielding 2 teams each in 2nd/3rd grade and 4th/5th grade, as well as a middle school team. To accommodate the growth, Dragons have created a rec league that also includes Culver City Tsunami and West LA. On May 1st we held another very well-attended “Bring A Friend Clinic”, and this summer we are launching tournament teams for U11, U13 and High School, and we are offering summer sessions, as well as a girls summer camp for beginners and advanced players from July 18 to 21. We’re glad to be part of the movement that is growing girls lacrosse in LA. And just like on the boys side, our coaching staff is making the difference. Led by our program head Meghan Toomey, our coaches include:
In the Fall of 2014, many Dragons players took part in an injury prevention class taught by Kyle Harrison. Since then, Kyle Harrison has moved to Charlotte, NC, and K18 sightings have become increasingly rare in LA. So we were especially excited when he reached out to our athletic director Erik Krum to set up an exclusive Dragons clinic on his most recent trip. The invite-only event took place April 5th at Lincoln Middle School in Santa Monica, and was open to twenty 7th and 8th graders.
The clinic was an amazing, fast-paced experience that was full of technical know-how and lacrosse IQ, but also highly motivational. Two hours flew by and seemed like minutes. And each player went home with a huge smile on his face, exhausted, and a lot wiser.
We are glad we were able to provide this experience to our families. And we will continue to bring special events like this to the Dragons, as more and more lacrosse personalities reach out to athletic director Erik Krum.

Keeping track of teams, schedules and fields can be a hassle. We finally have an app that makes all this simpler.
