Cougars Summer Lacrosse Team

This marks the 9th year for the Houston Cougars Lacrosse Summer Tournament team!  This summer team will be a combination of lacrosse players currently attending middle school OR high school in Houston, both public and private schools.  In addition to the Cougars high school teams, we expanded and fielded a middle school team. Last year we had a record 135 players from 15 different schools sign up (including Dallas and Austin) coached by (also a record) 17 volunteer coaches!  We will continue this summer with four Cougars teams:

GradeGraduation Year
Middle School: Rising 6th graders – Rising 8th graders2031 / 2030 / 2029
High School: Rising Freshman2028
High School: Rising Sophomore2027
High School: Rising Junior / Rising Senior2026 / 2025

Summer lacrosse is all about keeping sticks in our boys’ hands, continuing to play after the season is over and allowing them to gain valuable game experience outside the normal season.  We want to expose our boys to different players from different teams as well as put them in lacrosse environments where they can continue to grow as young men as well as increase their skill levels.  Playing games and continued lacrosse exposure is vital to our boys progressing.
