FOBNL believes that athletics complement and enrich the academic experience and are integral to every student’s education and personal growth. To that end, we strive to build interscholastic lacrosse programs within our community to foster a love of sport and a life-long commitment to health and fitness. We view coaches as teachers and the fields as extensions of the classroom. We encourage our student athletes to participate and to strive for excellence.
Our focus and vision is to field a cooperative varsity lacrosse team for both boys and girls for the spring season of the 2019-2020 academic year.
