Lacrosse is club sport that plays almost year-round with fall and winter/spring schedules. The fall schedule starts in October and runs through Thanksgiving (varsity may go longer), and the winter/spring season is January through April. In summer, a lacrosse club travels to play other teams. Jesuit also offers well-supervised lacrosse summer camps. Players may also participate in conditioning and indoor fun lacrosse throughout the summer.

Blue Jay Lacrosse fields four teams — varsity, junior varsity (JV), “frosh” (9th and 10th grades), and “U15” (8th grade). The four teams have a total of 15 coaches, including four assigned to the varsity squad.

New players are assigned team big brothers (in addition to Jesuit’s regular big brother program). The new players may participate in summer camps. indoor conditioning, and “wall ball,” helping them become connected even before their formal Jesuit school experience begins.

As the league has grown, Blue Jays have led the sport beyond the high school level by helping to develop lacrosse programs for inner city youths, including girls.
