Incoming Freshman Activities
Incoming freshmen will receive information regarding summer and pre-season activities for lacrosse players upon acceptance to Saint Francis DeSales HS.

Traditionally, incoming freshmen and returning players have the opportunity to participate in open fields throughout the summer.  Coaches are permitted by the Ohio High School Athletic Association; to work with players for ten practice days during the summer months. During the preseason, athletes not involved in a fall or winter sport have the opportunity to participate in a preseason weight training and conditioning program. The program is designed specifically for lacrosse players to encourage injury prevention while increasing strength, speed and flexibility. Preseason conditioning is held two days a week starting in December and continuing until the end of February. 

The St. Francis DeSales Girls Lacrosse team participates in two different indoor leagues: NorthStars Lacrosse League at the Continent, and Lucky Lax League at Sports Ohio. The first session of both leagues begins the first week of November and runs through December. In January, the team plays in a Box Lacrosse league with NorthStars.
