Let the OAHS Lacrosse teams play in the stadium!
Lacrosse is one of the fastest growing sports in the nation. Evidence of this can be found right here in Oxford. Oxford Youth Lacrosse serves boys and girls in K thru 8th grade residing in the Oxford School District. The league has been in existence for 6 years and has experienced year over year growth. In addition to the growth, we have an ever increasing amount of youth that have made year long commitments to lacrosse by also participating in club programs. In other words, lacrosse is here to stay!
This is the first year that we have kids who began playing in our recreational league that are now in the high school programs. In the next few years our program will be feeding more and more advanced players into the high school program. We are looking to ensure that high school lacrosse receives the support within our district that it is due.
We are one of the only high school lacrosse programs within the ChesMont league that does not have turf fields but that also does not play games in the stadium. As one of the biggest youth sports leagues in Oxford, we feel that the district should highlight its support of this growing sport by allowing both the boys and girls high school lacrosse teams play games within the stadium.
