LBL Statement on Community
It brings us incredible joy to see players back on the field the past two weeks during summer camp at Middletown Park. The smiles on their sweaty faces are a great reminder of our mission, to, above all else, emphasize the development of our players both on and off the field. We exist as an organization to serve our community.
Lower Bucks Lacrosse is privileged to support the positive character and athletic development of the girls and boys in our community. We are a league of inclusion, and strive to teach, listen and grow with our players. We are saddened and angered by the stark reminders of racial inequality in our country and will continue to champion this great sport’s ability to bring people together on and off the field.
For the many who feel the weight of hate, prejudice and oppression, we hear you and want to be part of the solution. We want all people to feel welcome in our program so that we can develop into our best selves together. As a league, we demand respectful treatment of others, in actions and words. Thank you for your support of our league and entrusting us to be a positive influence on your children. We take that responsibility seriously and are committed to ensure that the highest standards of behavior, equality and character development are maintained.
– The LBL Board of Directors

2020 Season Update
We hope you are all staying safe, in good health, and your kids are spending as much time as they can outdoors practicing lacrosse.
It’s with disappointment that we announce that the Lower Bucks Lacrosse Board has decided to cancel the Spring lacrosse season. Governor Wolf’s latest announcement extending the stay-at-home order, along with our supporting leagues, PAGLA and SEPYLA cancelling, has made it clear that we cannot proceed with the season.
Cancelling the lacrosse season pales in comparison to the very real devastation and illness being faced all over the world and in our very own backyards. We are thinking of our parents who are still working and now homeschooling their children. We wish we could offer an outlet for all that pent up energy. To all our parents that are healthcare professionals, fire or police, thank you for putting your community first.
We would, however, be remiss if we didn’t thank all our volunteers for all the hard work they put in up to this point. The LBL Board is continuing to meet regularly throughout the crisis and we are working hard to make sure your child has the opportunity to play lacrosse as soon as we are able. Stay tuned for details on summer and fall opportunities once we are cleared to return to play!
