Cougar Lacrosse Club strives to provide the children of Chatham with a fun, positive, and safe environment in which to learn the game of lacrosse. We aim to teach lacrosse skills, as well as life lessons, and we hope to instill in the children of Chatham a love for the game, as well as honoring the game by respecting themselves, teammates, coaches, opponents, and officials. We stress the teaching of fundamentals and recognize that children develop at different paces. We welcome all participants, and will provide financial support for anyone who would like to play, but can't afford the participation fee.
Cougar Lacrosse Program
The Chatham Lacrosse Community is very excited about the 2015 season. 2014 was a great year for us as we had over 1,100 boys and girls playing lacrosse in Chatham, clearly making Chatham a hot bed of lacrosse. Our youth program continues to provide fundamental instruction, a fun learning atmosphere, and a respect for the game.
If you have any questions about the program, please feel free to contact the CLC Board of Trustees:
This prevention program consists of a warm-up, stretching, strengthening, plyometrics, and sport specific agilities to address potential deficits in the strength and coordination of the stabilizing muscles around the knee joint. http://smsmf.org/pep-program
Please click here to view the rollout letter regarding baseline concussion testing for all those Chatham Recreation players in lacrosse who would like to participate. The program is funded through the Chatham Athletic Foundation and Atlantic Neuroscience Institute at Overlook and is free to anyone in the program. The letter has all the specifics and links to the site http://www.impacttestonline.com/atlanticneuroscienceconcussioncenter/. When registering, there is a drop-down list that has Chatham boys/girls lacrosse. The test takes about 30 minutes and can be done online at home on a computer. The test involves recognizing patterns and reaction time and in some ways is a video game. The results are stored in the server so if a child is injured, the baseline test can be used to asses the degree of injury.
The ImPact code you need to sign in is: 9576859099
If you know of any player who does not have access to a computer and wants to be tested, please refer to me and I will arrange for the child to get tested. Please let me know of any problems. Warmest Regards, Jack Knightly, MD.
For baseline results, please contact the the System Administrator for Chatham Boys Lacrosse, Cynthia Cross, at the Atlantic Neuroscience Concussion Center. Her e-mail is
