Middleton Lacrosse Academy is on hiatus until Fall 2018.

Our programing runs from the early Fall of each year until the the Spring of the following year.

In our first year, we were proud to serve over 100 youth boys lacrosse players.

We look forward to growing MLA with clinics, program, and specialty training for lacrosse in the future.

As our mottos goes, "Work Hard, Have Fun" during the 2018 lacrosse Spring and Summer seasons!!!


Thank you from all of our Instructors!!
