Vikings Lacrosse Club

The Central Florida Lacrosse Club, aka the Vikings Lacrosse team, is dedicated to growing lacrosse in East Orlando. Our mission is to teach young men various life skills through lacrosse. Over the past 20 years, the Central Florida Lacrosse Club has trained some of the top players in the Orlando area. Many of these individuals went on to play lacrosse at the collegiate level and positively affect their communities.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I purchase equipment?

There are several locations for you to get equipment for your player. It is recommended to go to Academy Sports or Dicks Sporting Goods to try on the equipment for correct sizing.

After you determine correct sizing, you can shop around online. There may also be used equipment at Play it Again Sports, but please confirm that the equipment still meets equipment standards for the current season.

How can I get involved?

We always need volunteers to help our program run smoothly. Here is a list of a few needs:

  • Assistant Coach - No experience needed. We will train you to help run drills and practice plans. You will be required to take a background check and a few online courses.
  • Team Parent - Help coordinate the end of year banquet, snacks for games, and help communicate with parents on the coaching staff's behalf.
  • Photographer/Videographer - We love to highlight our players and their achievements through our website and social media. This volunteer will help make sure action shots and team photos are taken throughout the season.
