Founded in the spring of 1988 by John Madden and Rod Korba, both former collegiate All-Americans from Maplewood, New Jersey, the Wooster Lacrosse Club has grown into one of the most respected and successful programs in Ohio.
Originally a "Parks and Recreation" program run by the City of Wooster for young men and women in grades 7-12, the organization has grown into one that now involves over 150 children from Wooster and the surrounding communities in grades 3 through 8 and the "Little Cranksters" program gets kids involved in learning the game as early as age 5.
The organization is proud of the fact that the level of play has netted many honors at every level, including three state championships by the High School Boys team in 1991, 1998 and again in 2002.
Wooster currently boasts one of Ohio's finest facilities in historic Maurer Field, which serves as the home for the boys and girls varsity, junior varsity, middle school and elementary teams. As the former high school football field, the tradition-rich stadium features a plush, well maintained natural grass playing surface, a two-tier press box, lighting for night games and seating for more than 1000 fans.
Wooster Lacrosse players have gone on to compete at the collegiate level in such programs as Ohio State, Bowling Green, Butler, Wittenberg, The College of Wooster, U.S. Air Force Academy, U.S. Military Academy. Mercy Hurst, Wheeling Jesuit, Colgate, Pfiefer, Denison, Kenyon and many others.
