Questions?    Please feel free to contact our new BLA Recreation Director Mike Karr at 321-848-2099 or

"Although my family has been in Florida for over 20 years, I have just recently moved here from San Francisco, CA in 2018.  Quickly I found lacrosse here as I played in the BLA adult lacrosse pick up play my brother Brian was running and helped my other brother Shawn who is coaching the boys lacrosse program at Satellite Beach High School.  Additionally, after I opened Blue Tornado Sports Arena, I met many coaches, players and families who participated in our high school or other indoor lacrosse programs.   I have found the lacrosse community to be very welcoming (except when I was around the goalie crease durning adult pick up) as well as shown an eagerness to grow the sport in Brevard.  I  hope my over twenty years of director and coaching experience will help in this endeavor," Coach Mike.

The Introductory League is coed as well for ages 7 to 12 years.  The one hour session consists of a coach led practice game called “soft lacrosse.”  Soft lacrosse does not require the purchase of equipment since there is no stick or body checking at this age and the ball is a modified soft rubber version of the regulation lacrosse ball; BLA will provide all the gear needed.  Coaches will referee and instruct the practice games utilizing the "Pause, Learn, Play" (PLP) methodology.  This allows coaches to stop the game for no more than 30 seconds to discuss a coaching point with the player and allow the player to restart the game implementing the skill or tactic discussed with the coach thus reinforcing and assuring positve habits, decisions and tactics are being created.  The cost is $99.00 per player; each player will receive a uniform.

The Recreational League is for ages 7 to 13 years. Players are placed into teams of their individual genders as the lacrosse stick, rules, and style of play begin to differ significantly at this stage.  Parents are responsible for obtaining their own lacrosse equipment - stick, gloves, arm pads, shoulder pads, helmet and mouth guard for boys and, for girls, stick, gloves, mouth guard and eyewear.  We have a loaner program based on donations of equipment that players have outgrown and families have donated to pay it forward for the next generation of players.  Loaner dates are generally announced within 1-2 weeks of the start of the seasonss and work on a first come, first serve basis. The cost is $130.00 per player; each player will receive a uniform.
