Kerri has been coaching youth sports for ten years and has instructed hundreds of players. She's been a mom and on the sidelines of youth sports for even longer.  Kerri has seen the needs of young women athletes develop and change in recent years, and has seen the impact that friendships, school work, home struggles, and preteen/teen development have on young women.


She realized that to be successful on the field, girls need to be supported in EVERYTHING they have going on in their daily lives. That is why Kerri is committed to making youth sports an outlet and a safe place for athletes to discover new things and develop their skills, while working their way to becoming their best selves.


Athletes are taught to focus on improving their individual skills while supporting their teammates as they explore their own journey.  We practice with the promise to each other that we will BUILD EACH OTHER UP every day.

Flare Lacrosse is committed to the development of strong women athletes. We understand that what happens off the field is just as important as what happens on the field. Our program model focuses on friendship, kindness, and supporting each other to build a stronger young woman, both inside and out.


Flare Lacrosse offers something for all players, regardless of their ability level. We are specifically focused and committed to the development of new and intermediate players.


You don't need to spend a lot of money to get started. Players only need a stick, mouth guard, and goggles.  Indoor play requires sneakers while outdoor play requires cleats. 


This is an easy yes. We want to support and enrich town and school programs as well as continue to develop athletes. On this note, we will never create a conflict during regular or playoff season play.
