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.
Mission Statelment for CLC:
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.

Wall ball is the quickest way to improve your stick skills. Your will get many more "touches" (i.e. chances at practicing passing & catching) versus regular clinics or games. You can also play wall ball at any time and without the need for practice partners. Visit Chatham's wall at Lum field and click on the links below for instruction.
