Welcome to the 2017 spring season of the Franklin Lacrosse Club.
This year is shaping up to be one of the most memorable seasons as we have a lot planned for our youth program. We have a very solid board with both returning members and many new volunteers. Our goal, as always, is development first. Our mission statement is the same as always – “To promote the sport of lacrosse and its history throughout Franklin, WI, and the greater Milwaukee area. To teach, coach and develop the fundamental skills, understanding, and respect for the game of Lacrosse.”
Board Members will be making appearances throughout the year at games and practices, so if you see them and have any ideas for improvement or just want to say “hello,” please stop us.
Thank you all for your support and trust in the development of your child.
Franklin Lacrosse Board,
Tim Kaye, President
Doug Clark, Vice-President
Ben Moen, Treasurer
Andrea Wrench, Secretary
Angela Beadle, Program Administrator
Shawna Summers, Member At Large
