Backyard lacrosse at its best! The basic concept of Qwik Stix has been around and taught to players for decades.  Our version is played 3 vs 3 on a 40 x 20 yard grass field with 4' by 4' goals.  Players are put into teams of 3-5 players by grade and ability.

The smaller field and goals place more of an emphasis on quick passing and finesse over checking and physicality.  The result is non-stop action that teaches the players how to transition quickly from offense to defense and vice versa, while also providing a much needed source of conditioning needed during the off-season.

The "Challenge" is a mini-tournament featuring a pool play round, playoff, and Championship.  Winning team each week earns prizes and team photo featured on our social media accounts and website.

"I wanted to thank you for providing a great program. My son does not consider himself a sports kid and had never been interested in a sport more than trying it one time. I'm not sure what you are doing differently, but it is definitely working for him! When I picked him up last night, the first thing he said to me was, "I am DEFINITELY doing qwik stix!" I have never seen him this excited to play a sport. Thank you!

"When Riptide Lacrosse says #growthegame, it’s more than just a hashtag. Riptide has been so warm and welcoming to my daughter and has helped her tremendously in honing her goalkeeping skills. All of the coaches have been kind and inclusive while demanding improvement. Our family feels so fortunate to have crossed paths with Riptide Lacrosse. Thank you for growing the game locally, for real!!!"
