New Players

We strive to make playing lacrosse as simple and affordable as possible. We hold free clinics throughout the year, offer new players a free trial session and provide free loaner gear. We even have a LaunchPad program that provides guidelines on how to get into lacrosse and at what time of the year.


Advanced Players

Over the last 6 years we have developed hundreds of boys into tournament level players and won close to 50 championships. Our high school boys compete at the highest level on the West Coast and are active in the recruiting process. The Dragons girls program serves as a development program and advanced players participate in Fire Lacrosse during tournament season.

The Annual Calendar

Dragons offers programming for boys and girls in K through 12 from September to the end of July. Fall is the best time of year to get started. In there winter we offer recreational and tournament teams, as well as high school recruiting for boys. In the spring we focus on participation in youth rec leagues. In the summer we are back to doing tournaments and traveling across the West and East Coast for recruiting events.


Player Development

We take a long-term approach to developing boys and girls into the best possible and well-rounded student athletes they can be; on and off the field. Our coaching staff is the most expansive and knowledgable in the area and our 360º Player Development curriculum provides the structure for a path from elementary school to through high school.


The Team Experience

Imagine a place where you can just come and be yourself. A place where you can take as much or as little time as you need to develop your skills. A place full of positive energy and support. A place that is inclusive and supportive and easy to make friends in. That is the essence of the Dragons Lacrosse team experience.



We like to bring the lacrosse community together several times a year to just have fun or be part of a good cause. Every Halloween we host the Pumpkin Shoot on the beach in Santa Monica and we have several videos to show for it. Every June we host the Laps 4 Lax Fundraiser to bring everyone together for a fun and meaningful pre-summer event.
