FARGO, N.D. – The Fargo Warriors Lacrosse Club has announced that it has expanded for its second straight season, adding a third team for the 2013 spring competitive season.
The Warriors announced this week they have added an Under-13 team for fifth-, sixth- and seventh-graders. This newest competitive Warriors team joins the Warriors high school varsity team that was started in 2011 and the 7th/8th grade team that was added in 2012.
That means that for 2013, the club will field nearly 75 players on three teams: a high school varsity team, an Under-15 team for eighth- and ninth-graders and the U-13 team for fifth-, sixth- and seventh-graders.
Registration for all three teams will close on March 1, but there still is room for interested youths to participate. To register for a Fargo Warriors Lacrosse competitive team, visit the team website here.
“We’ve seen a steady increase of interest in lacrosse in our community as evidenced by more kids playing in our competitive program, in the (Fargo) Park District instructional program and in our winter clinics,” said Fargo Warriors Lacrosse President Matt Noah. “We’ve also seen the beginnings of interest in a team for girls.”
“We anticipate the day that Moorhead High School will enter a team in the MSHSL,” Noah said. “However, sanctioning the sport by the NDHSAA will require the spread of the sport to Bismarck, Minot, Jamestown, etc. Currently, only Grand Forks and Fargo offer competitive youth lacrosse in North Dakota.”
The Fargo Warriors Lacrosse Club was incorporated in 2007 and has offered programs for players from third grade through high school.
