February is upon us!!! Once you get yourself unburied from the snow it's time to shake out those bags, dust off those sticks, tighten up the pocket and get some new tape on the shaft because the official start to our 2015 season is right around the corner!

The Entire Board of Marlborough Hudson Youth Lacrosse
For well over ten years Federation Lacrosse’s Youth Camp, held every year in Sudbury, has molded young athletes of various ages from all over the Metrowest area into outstanding lacrosse players. Many of our alumni have had outstanding high school lacrosse careers, and some have gone on to win NCAA Championships in the sport. Federation Lacrosse has always prided itself on employing exceptional coaches who are professional educators, and thus are much more effective teachers of the sport.
We are always looking for additional help to keep the program growing. So if you would like to help in anyway send an email to:
. We have several board members with children aging out of the program this year, so please help.
