Lax & the Law

For the 8th consecutive year the the Tyngsborough Police School Resource Program is sponsoring “Lax and the Law Nights” at the Tyngsboro Sports Center.  It’s an opportunity for new players to learn the game of Lacrosse and for current players to practice their skills before the start of the Lacrosse Season.
SRO Sgt Steve Manning organizes the program which is open to High School Students from Tyngsboro HS and Greater Lowell Technical HS.  Players need to bring their own equipment.
The sessions begin with some drills, then players are split into 2 teams and scrimmage
 for approximately 45 minutes.
