Jackson Hole Lacrosse has grown enormously in a few short years to include 225 players.
Boys and girls from age 6-18 practice and compete against teams from Idaho, Montana, Utah and Wyoming. We expect about 20-30% growth in players for the next few years.
With this growth comes additional cost for use of fields, coaches, referees, equipment, home tournaments and uniforms. In 2014 we had two tournaments with 55 teams competing providing substantial economic stimulus to Jackson in the off season.
Being a relatively small town, we had to recruit 10 certified referees per tournament from Salt Lake City to insure a quality, safe, competitive learning environment for the players.
If you are able to support Jackson Hole Lacrosse with a gift of any size, the Old Bill’s 2014 giving period began July 4. All donations must be received by the Community Foundation by September 12, 2014 at 5pm.
Jackson Hole Lacrosse will participate together in Old Bill’s Fun Run. I encourage all players and parents to join us with your sticks and any team apparel.

The Jackson Hole Lacrosse Club is a registered non-profit 501(c) organiziation providing the youth of Jackson Hole the opportunity to learn and participate in the sport of Lacrosse, America's fastest growing sport. The club operates completely on a volunteer basis and as such has no employees. The club welcoms tax deductible donations online or by mail here.
Teams are open to boys and girls age 6 through high school. Volunteers are dedicated to promoting the sport of lacrosse and to developing our player's skills, sportsmanship, teamwork and accountability in a healthy and fun environment.
Home practice and game fields are ajacent to the Jackson Hole Middle School, Jackson Hole High School and Davey Jackson Elementary School. The main Spring season runs from April into early June, and the casual Fall season from Septemeber into November.
The Mission and Goals of Jackson Hole Lacrosse Club (“JHLC” or Jackson Hole Lacrosse”) are as follows:
To introduce and grow a community-based program that offers all youth in the Jackson Hole area, regardless of economic status, the opportunity to discover, embrace and participate in the sport of lacrosse, and to grow the sport while maintaining the highest ethical standards, providing quality coaching and instruction, and protecting and enhancing the well-being of participants in a safe and respectful environment.
The goals of Jackson Hole Lacrosse are several-fold:
• To share the passion of the lacrosse experience with a diverse player community
• To provide participating youth with quality coaching and instruction in a safe and respectful environment
• To grow the sport of lacrosse while promoting and maintaining the highest ethical standards
• To protect and enhance the physical well-being of local participants in the sport of lacrosse
The philosophy of the club is to develop players’ skills and understanding of the game, to provide for inclusion of all interested players, to allow flexibility for players and their families, to play safely, to be respectful of players, coaches, and referees, and to have a good time.
Although the club wants to field a team that can travel and play in regional tournaments, we also want the kids to be able to participate in other sports or activities if they choose as it is good for cross training, skill development and personal development.
The club would like players to come to practices as much as possible. If there is a regular or occasional conflict in scheduling, please let the coach know. An appropriate level of fitness training is required for skill development; drills, small scrimmages and conditioning are a part of each practice. The coaches teach and enforce the rules and safety precautions to minimize the risk of injuries.

A great local spectator turnout takes in the exciting lacrosse atmosphere at the first ever middle school team home tournament. The team fell to Idaho Falls in a tight 3-4 game, and split with an older Bozeman U15 team. With the help of 9th graders Sunday against Bozeman, Jackson Hole won a barn-burner 7-6.
Middle School Team Takes On Bozeman and Billings U15 Teams
Middle School Team vs. Billings U15 at Bozeman, MT - May 5, 2012
The middle-school team stepped up to take on U15 (15 & under) teams from Bozeman & Billings this past Saturday, in a cold and windy Bozeman, Montana. They were hard fought games and good learning experiences for our team, against the older players. Our team did well and were 'in' both games up to the end, with final scores 1-4 vs. Billings and 2-6 vs. Bozeman. Pictures from both games are in the Middle School Team area.

All players must be 8 years old or younger on the August 31st preceding competition. It is recommended that when multiple teams exist within a program, teams should consider physical size, skill, and maturity.
NOTE: Age group references used in this section are in common usage but should not be understood literally. The U15 (read: "Under 15") grouping means that, if a player is 14 years old on the cutoff date, he may participate in U15 competition as a 15-year old.
Although it is not recommended that any athlete play below his age group, US Lacrosse recognizes the need for special consideration due to the physical and/or cognitive development of an athlete. It would be up to the league to establish a waiver process through which it can review such cases. Ultimately it is up to the league and athlete’s parents to come to an agreement.
