Welcome to Doc's NYC Lacrosse


Evaluations For Spring!!!!

Evaluations will be held on February 5th, 12th, and 26th. These will be held at City College's Nat Holman Gymnasium. The address is 160 Convent Ave. Walk South on Convent Ave (it is a pedestrian avenue) to the Marshank Science Building. The gym is in the basement. Players in grades 3, 4, and 5 will have their evaluation from 6-730pm on all three nights. Players in grades 6, 7, and 8 will tryout have their evaluations from 730-9pm on all three nights. Players who did not do our Fall Evaluation must come to AT LEAST one of these sessions. Players may come to two or all 3 evaluations, if they wish. Players in 2nd grade and below do not have evaluations. We use evaluations to place players on appropriate teams.

If you want to sign up for spring lacrosse in grades K-2, registration will remain open through mid March. For players in grades 3-8, please email to see if we have space in our program now that registration has closed.


DRAFT Practice Schedule - Times and Locations
Below you can find a DRAFT schedule for practices locations and times, starting the FIRST WEEK OF APRIL. 
In March, we will host practices on SUNDAYS at Cardinal Spellman HS in the Bronx. Girls 3-4 and 5-6 teams will practice from 9-1030am. Girls 78 and Boys 34 teams will practice from 1030am-12pm. Boys 56 teams will practice from 12pm-130pm. Boys 78 teams will practice from 130-3pm.
We know some people will be away during certain weekends in March due to school vacations, etc. Missing a practice because you are away, or finishing up another sport's season, is OK. If you are around, and available, these March Sunday practices are mandatory for players in Grades 3-8 on both the boys and girls sides!
Please note that this is NOT a final schedule, and can be subject to change depending on player numbers, teams, final spring permits, etc. We put this up in an attempt to help people plan, but please know there could be changes. "RI" stands for Randall's Island.

Founded in 1996, Doc's New York City Youth Lacrosse is named for Bernard "Doc" Schoenbaum (1914-1989), a former collegiate/club player, teammate and friend who played most of his lacrosse in New York City, first with The City College of New York and then for the New York Lacrosse Club. True to his nickname, Doc had a highly successful career in dentistry, practicing for many years on 57th Street. In the world of lacrosse, he is best known for competing at the post-collegiate/club level well into his 70's. As an athlete and professional, Doc remains an inspiration to all of us.
