The Ambush Lacrosse Club is a non-profit competitive organization that focuses on the personal and athletic development of our student-athletes and creates a safe, positive learning environment on and off the field. We hope to teach lessons of character, discipline, respect, responsibility, leadership, teamwork and above all sportsmanship. We will emphasize that academics and family obligations always take top priority.
