Bellingham Summer Travel Team Tryout

2016 CitySideLax Summer Travel Team

Our mission is to facilitate a lacrosse opportunity for your boys to grow into young men both on and off the field. Through experiences in the athletic classroom, it is our sincere goal that every one of our players hones his lacrosse skills and becomes a better player while harnessing those experiences to grow as an individual off the field. At CitySideLax, our founding principle is P.I.C.A. (Preparation, Innovation, Connection and Accountability). By adhering to P.I.C.A. we are able to achieve our overarching goal of “Perfecting F.U.N.” (Fundamentals, Understanding and Next level) through everything we do. What this means is that we do not choose our family members based pure skill or production on the field; instead we look at the overall person and how they can improve and positively represent the CitySideLax (CSL) community. It is not a right to be a member of the CSL family, but rather an earned privilege.  With that being said, creating a highly competitive, extremely skilled team is important to us as a CSL staff. We select our players based on how they embody P.I.C.A. in striving to Perfect F.U.N. in conjunction with their performance on the field.

Tryout Price: $35


This summer we will continue our graduation year specific teams.

  • 2024/2023 (Current 5th and 6th graders)

  • 2022/2021 (Current 7th and 8th graders)

*If numbers are high or low in a given age group there is a potential to either add a team or subtract.


At CitySideLax we pride ourselves on having some of the best young coaches the Pacific Northwest has to offer. All of our coaches have played a collegiate sport, mostly lacrosse, and some have continued on their career to the highest level, playing professionally and representing Team USA in both Field and Box Lacrosse. Our coaches have a passion for growing the game that they all have such passion for the right way. Each coach has been CSL Certified in P.I.C.A. and Perfecting F.U.N.
