Fort Mill lacrosse teams with Steele Creek

November 12, 2012 

Fort Mill Lacrosse Club has entered into a relationship with Steele Creek Athletic Association to help launch lacrosse programs. FMLC will lend their knowledge of the game and experience to SCAA families to ensure the players have a safe place to learn the sport.

Spring 2013 recreation teams will run through FMLC, operating as one organization utilizing FMLC resources. Once SCAA members have a experienced a full season, SCAA may run programs independently. SCAA is a volunteer-run organization similar to FMLC with 50-plus years of recreational sports management.

FMLC is committed to growing the sport of lacrosse in our community and surrounding areas, and hopes this model of partnership and stewardship of the game will be adopted by other recreational sports leagues looking to add lacrosse.
