DUE TO THE WEATHER CONDITIONS WE HAVE EXPERIENCED THIS WINTER AND IN MOST RECENT DAYS WE WILL NOT OPEN OUR SPRING LACROSSE SEASON THIS WEEKEND SATURDAY, MARCH 1st AND SUNDAY, MARCH 2nd WITH BOYS AND GIRLS PRACTICE AT BLUE DIAMOND PARK. STAY TUNED FOR UPDATES ON FIELD CONDITIONS AND WHEN WE CAN GET OUTSIDE TO START THE 2014 SEASON.
The Silverbacks Lacrosse Association and the Delaware Lacrosse Academy are extremely pleased to announce that Blue Diamond Park in New Castle is our new home for all things Lacrosse. We are excited about the current and future possibilities this new venue has to offer the Lacrosse community of New Castle County and surrounding areas.
We are deeply thankful to the Ferrara family for their generosity to afford us this very special opportunity to grow the sport of Lacrosse in the First State. Not only will our boys and girls youth programs benefit by this new location, but it puts us in a position to offer more opportunities for High School Boys and Girls and adults to participate in Summer leagues, clinics and camps. We hope you'll come and join us and play the "Fastest Game on Two Feet."
"SPRING 2014 BOYS AND GIRLS LACROSSE REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!"

Every year, players of all ages in all sports receive concussion injuries during games and practice. Characterized by an impairment of the brain’s normal function and caused by violent shaking or jarring of the brain, concussions may cause alterations in cognitive function, vision, eye movement, facial movement, or speech. Contrary to popular belief, no helmet in any sport can prevent a concussion. (A reprint from US Lacrosse).
