Camas, WA — The Camas Lacrosse Club is making the sport available for girls to play competitively this season — with registration currently under way.
“In the past, the girls have had to play for Evergreen, but that’s changing now,” said Gibson. “Girls can now play competitively in Camas. We have one entire 3rd/4th grade team already set.”
The sport made its official Camas debut five years ago and continues to thrive and grow in popularity, said club president, Karen Gibson. It started with 30 players and has grown to 250 this year.
Registration is open at www.camaslacrosse.com

For grades 9-12, practices start on February 25, and the season runs through the beginning of May. For grades 1-8, practices start on March 5, with the season running through the beginning of May.
The club is working to make girls lacrosse an official high school sport. And, they are actively recruiting coaches. They also received a $3,000 equipment grant from US Lacrosse earmarked for the girls teams.
In addition, Camas LAX is hosting a college game between Portland State University and Central Washington this Saturday at Cardon Field at 3 pm.
”We’re trying to bring a high level of lacrosse to the area,” said Gibson. “We’re grateful for all the support we’ve received.”
