One of our goals at Ready-Set-Sports is to expose children to sports that they might not otherwise have an opportunity to play. In doing so, we do our best to eliminate cost as a barrier to learn a sport. Lacrosse is a sport that, like hockey, can be cost prohibitive for parents or it may not be a sport a parent is willing to invest in for children at such an early age. As an example, other lacrosse programs in Northern Virginia cost as much as $200 to register and investing in equipment can easily cost a family between $300 and $400. For that reason, Ready-Set-Sports provides the necessary equipment for our programs. These programs are instructional and are a great opportunity for players to experience lacrosse for the first time in a program that is not hyper competitive. We provide ALL equipment in our programs. This is not a “travel” program and is ideal for players interested in experiencing lacrosse for the first time and who are looking for exposure to the sport without having to make significant financial and time investments.
