Absolutely. Games are super fun to watch. My kids play youth lacrosse and getting them out to games helps with their game IQ, and they get to see “big kids” play which gets them hyped for their season. Trying to get some extra games in before our season starts. BU games are $8 which is the best sports deal in town. Assuming BC games are $20 or less it would be great to hit up those games as well.

I see nice. Ya guess they could also watch games on YouTube if you can’t get in. Are they on track to be college players? What was their path to getting into it and good?

My oldest started last year because his cousin plays. Not on track to play in college (unlike his cousin, who’s father played on scholarship) as it’s not his preferred sport and he started late. My middle child is a girl and there is no girls league at her age in our town, and she would rather play boys lacrosse anyway. My youngest just turned 4 and loves showing off to the “big kids” that he can play. All 3 play rugby (little one will start this year) and that’s their preferred sport.

Rugby! Wow that’s pretty intense at a young age no?

Its touch/flag until middle school. They spend a ton of time on fundamentals and proper tackle technique so that when they get to the tackle age the chance of a high hit or head to head contact is minimized. All three love it. We play at Pine Banks park and it’s $50 for the summer…practices are Mon, Wed, Fri from 6:30-8 with several Saturday jamborees around New England.

Edit: cost is actually $65 for flag/touch and $75 for tackle for the year.

Pretty sure the games will be free once they are somewhere where spectators are allowed. To my knowledge, the only BC sports that charge admission are football, men's hockey and men and women's basketball. (Women's hockey games are free.)

That’s awesome if true. We have never ventured over to a BC game so I didn’t know this.
