Cincy Royals Supports Organization to Grow the Game!

Making Lacrosse Available to More Cincinnati Youth

Conor Peck, Varsity Lacrosse Head Coach at Walnut Hills High School and Cincy Royals Coach had a vision – create a grassroots lacrosse program allowing every student in the Cincinnati Public School district to have the same opportunities to learn and compete at the game of lacrosse like many others in Greater Cincinnati.

It is no secret that the most difficult part of putting together a lacrosse team or program is the cost of equipment and uniforms.  To that, Coach Peck and Josh Hardin, Cincinnati Public Schools Athletic Director, have worked to form relationships with US Lacrosse, Dick’s Sporting Goods and the lacrosse community to secure donated new and/or used gear.

This Spring, Eagles Youth Lacrosse is proudly introducing affordable youth lacrosse to five (5) new schools in the Cincinnati area this year and have hopes to keep expanding. The schools that make up our 2017 rosters include: Sands Montessori, Kilgour Elementary, Fairview German Language School, Hyde Park School, and Pleasant Ridge Montessori.

“In the early stages of this idea, we were unsure of what the response would be like from our targeted schools,” says Peck, “After an overwhelmingly positive registration period, we are now fielding 2 teams for both boys and girls grades 3 through 6.”

Given the huge response, we are actively attempting to collect as much used gear and practice pinnies as possible, so that we can continue to help supply new players and programs. Anything you are willing to part with would be greatly appreciated.

Sincere thank you to the Cincy Royals for supporting our initiative.  -Coach Peck
