Limerick Lacrosse is a recreational community-based non-profit program for girls in the Spring-Ford area. Its purpose is to introduce lacrosse to girls in grades 1-8.
Limerick Lacrosse was founded in 2008 by Maureen Burger. Before the formation of Limerick Lacrosse, Spring-Ford girls played for other area clubs such as Methacton and Pottstown. The Spring-Ford Area had grown so as to support it's own program. Since the inception there have been multiple teams at each level.
In 2010, St. Eleanor's CYO program joined the Limerick family. This provided an opportunity for more 7-8th girls to play and also made it possible to offer 7-8th grade girls a second night of practice.
Limerick Lacrosse has also worked hard to offer many offseason opportunities for our children to play in the fall, winter and summer when it doesn't interfere with other sports. We have had teams participate in indoor leagues at 422 Sportsplex and summer leagues in Limerick and North Coventry.
Limerick Lacrosse has also provided teams for officials training at United Sports Training Center in Downingtown.
In 2012 Limerick Lacrosse added 1st and 2nd graders to the program.
Teams are coached by parent volunteers and new in 2012 will be assisted by Spring-Ford High School players. High School players are also trained to officiate the games.
Each year the Spring-Ford High School Girl's Lacrosse team hosts Limerick Lacrosse Night at a home night game. Players wear their uniforms, get in free and are announced at half-time.
