What We Teach

Brandywine Lacrosse Club (the Black Hawks) seeks players from North Wilmington schools – both public and private schools – to teach them the game of Lacrosse in a manner that we hope will give our players a solid foundation and a love for the game to support them towards a decision to play Lacrosse for their local school. Our club encourages experienced players, first-time players, two-sport athletes and anyone who has the desire to learn the game of Lacrosse.
