our purpose

The Wooster Lacrosse Club was founded in 1988 to provide young athletes with an opportunity to learn the sport of lacrosse in an environment which emphasizes the values of responsibility, teamwork, sportsmanship, honesty and integrity.  The club is open to all boys and girls in grades K-8 from Wooster, Ohio and surrounding communities.  Our many dedicated coaches and volunteers aim to make a positive impact in young people's lives while instilling in them a love for the game of lacrosse.

inclusion

The Wooster Lacrosse Club seeks to foster a lacrosse community that encourages understanding, appreciation and acceptance.  We believe that broad representation and participation add significant value to the lacrosse experience of each of us, and that these valued experiences are enhanced by embracing underrepresented and underserved communities.

our history

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 athletes 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 Lacrosse Club 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.
