Now Offering Girls Programming For Summer 2020!
We are excited to announce the addition of girls lacrosse to our summer 2020 programming! We will be offering summer and fall programming for girls in 5th grade through high school. Northside Hustle is neutral to all spring clubs and high school teams, and has been created to take lacrosse in northern Colorado to new heights.
The Goal: ELEVATE THE NORTH! We want to elevate and accelerate the growth of lacrosse in Northern Colorado, and provide players and families with an experience to remember, and a club to be proud of. We’re in this together, and we can’t wait to grow lacrosse with you all!
The Blueprint: The Hustle girls program will follow the same blueprint as the boys. We are putting together a staff of current youth directors, high school coaches, and former college players that not only know the game, but are great leaders. We believe that “you win with people,” and our coaches will teach players how to be great on and off the field. We are committed to helping instill behaviors, skills, and attitudes that players can use on and off the field.
*We have significant interest from 5th-8th grade and anticipate 2-3 strong teams. We will continue to gauge interest for the high school division and will have high school clinics regardless of teams*
Tournaments: Teams will compete in two tournaments.
Practices: Teams will practice 2 days a week from the start of June through the last tournament in July. Each team will have 11 practices in addition to a team training camp.
Tentative Practice Days: 6/2, 6/4. 6/9, 6/11, 6/16, 6/18, 6/23, 6/25, 7/7, 7/9
*Locations will rotate between Broomfield, Lafayette, and Loveland

Why Now? We have received significant interest in multiple age groups to offer tournament programming for girls. Women’s lacrosse continues to grow, and so does our passion to grow the game!
Team Placement : In our first year, we will be sending out team invites instead of tryouts. The beginning of the spring season will be a great way for our coaches to evaluate and receive feedback on all girls who are interested in playing. While we would like to take all girls who are interested, our competition will be strong. We want to make sure all girls selected are put in the best situation to develop and succeed. All players who have filled out our interest survey will be evaluated by the following criteria.
- Their performance in the first few weeks of the spring season.
- Coach recommendations and film.
- Prior club experience.
*Please send us any coach contacts that you would like for us to reach out to or any notes on your daughter's spring division/club experience.
Invites will be sent out by April 1st.
