A new sports league is planning to make its debut in Los Alamos this spring.
Los Alamos Volcano Lacrosse is currently accepting registrations for youth players in hopes of playing competitively this year. The season is scheduled from March through May.
Lacrosse, an outdoor field game that is similar to the European sport of team handball, but employs the use of small baskets attached to sticks, is one of the original sports played on the North American continent. The origins of lacrosse can be dated back approximately 4,000 years to Native American tribes living in modern-day Canada.
Teams, consisting of 10 players each, attempt to move a small ball across the field into the opponent’s goal. Lacrosse is a full-contact sport in which helmets and shoulder pads are used at the competitive level.
A group of about eight players from Los Alamos has been regularly competing on a Santa Fe-based team, but several of those players desired a team based closer to home.
Volcano coach James C. Miller said there was a good turnout for the two registration sessions over the last two weeks.
