Background

Established in 2003, Coyotes Lacrosse is one of the longest standing clubs dedicated to bringing the sport of lacrosse to boys and girls on the mid-Peninsula. Our players come primarily from the mid-Peninsula: Burlingame, Hillsborough, San Mateo, Millbrae, Half-Moon Bay, and South San Francisco.  We are passionate about all things lacrosse – our coaches are deeply committed and love teaching the game; our players love learning and playing the game. 

Our players are taught to honor the traditions of the game while competing with intensity, losing with dignity and winning with grace.  Coyotes play hard, share the ball, respect the game and run with their pack!

Our program has a philosophy grounded in:

1) Developing strong fundamental lacrosse skills in our players

2) Encouraging true teamwork

3) Emphasizing that character, integrity and sportsmanship will ultimately define success.

Our efforts to instill these characteristics in our players aim to create athletes of strong character who will be better prepared for life on and off the field in the years ahead.

 

Our Program

Coyotes Lacrosse is a volunteer, non-profit 501(c)3 organization whose goal is to provide the children of our community the opportunity to learn and play the game of lacrosse.  Based in Burlingame, we are not solely affiliated with any school district or single city.  While we prefer players play with clubs most local to their hometown, we accept players from the greater San Francisco/Peninsula area, at all playing levels, and from both public and private schools.  We are a member of both the Northern Junior Lacrosse Association (NCJLA) and US Lacrosse, the national governing body of the sport.

Our lacrosse program caters to all levels of player, and is run by a mix of volunteer and paid coaches.   At this time, we run the following programs, with separate (and often multiple) groups/teams for Boys and Girls at each level:

Our 8U - 14U teams compete within the NCJLA and will play games against other clubs on the Peninsula and around the broader Bay Area.  Spring practices begin in late January or early February while games will be contested in March though mid-May.

We have nearly 300 boys and girls participating across our programs, and our pleased that many of our alumni players have been a part of both our Burlingame High School program as well as other of the most prominent Bay Area High School teams.  Additionally, former players have gone on to play at the highest collegiate levels on both the girls and boys side.

Registration for our Fall programs takes place during July and August, while Spring registration occurs during October and November.

Our home game field is at Burlingame High School and we practice at other fields in the Burlingame, Hillsborough and San Mateo area.  All field information can be found under the Field Information section of this web site.
