Mission Statement

The Mountain Ridge Lacrosse Club provides Mountain Ridge, Barry Goldwater, Deer Valley, Glendale Prep, Joy Christian, Liberty, Sandra Day O’Connor, Sunrise Mountain, and other Northwest Valley high school student athletes the opportunity to play competitive lacrosse, thereby developing the student’s physical, mental, and teamwork capabilities which the sport of lacrosse emphasizes.

Our mission is to grow the sport of lacrosse by providing an affordable nonprofit lacrosse club for high school student athletes while developing their character and leadership as they serve as positive members of their schools and community.

The Mountain Ridge Lacrosse Club:

  • Won the 2017 DII State Championship.
  • Has had three Academic All Americans.
  • Has had several players go on to play at the collegiate level, including a Division 1 commitment in 2019!
  • Employs coaches independent of the organization to ensure more equitable opportunities for our players versus clubs that permit owners, family members, and player’s parents to coach.
  • Ensures its head coach has played at the collegiate level.
  • Actively supports charitable causes as part of team functions and games through its support of the Kids Playing for Kids Foundation.
  • Offers Fall Ball for free to new and existing players to teach the sport of lacrosse without any financial risks to the player or family.
