Boys Rec

What Parents are Saying about Bethesda Lacrosse

Feedback from the Spring 2023 rec season

"My kindergartner just finished his first year of lacrosse and loved it! He has learned the game, made friends, and improved his skills. Most importantly, BLC has emphasized safety and teamwork every step of the way. Looking forward to next year!"

"Bethesda Lacrosse rec league is a wonderful way for players to get an enjoyable experience learning and playing lacrosse is a low stress environment. Everyone plays in the games so even newer players get the chance to play and grow."

"We live much closer to several other lacrosse teams but always come back to BLC! This is our second year and we could not be happier. The rec league keeps things fun and exciting while making sure all the players progress. Thank you for another great season!"
