Whales Lacrosse . . .
If you truly love lacrosse you understand why Whales exists. We are on the field for the love of the game. We aren't playing for intense parents, coaches or recruiters. We are playing because we love this sport. We want to win but, more importantly, we want to have fun. As an added bonus, we have found we can play the sport we love and give back to those who need a lift or some other type of support. Our motto: "Play with passion, have fun, give back" summarizes what Whales is all about. Whales creates a new team ("pod") each time we assemble and that team plays in a single tournament. We select a charity for every tournament we enter. In less than three years, we have championed over $87,000 for cancer research and awareness. Visit our charity page to see how you can help.

Both U15 (Pod G2) & High School Elite (Pod G1) won the championship in their age divisions at the Oregon Lacrosse Classic in Bend, OR. They also raised $14,000 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society in honor of Liz Lofurno. Not a bad start to our girls program! #LizStrong video by Mitch Flippo
