Team NorCal Fall Ball is NOT a requirement for members of the current travel teams. The travel teams will continue to practice and play in tournaments this Fall. Experienced players looking to maintain an edge are welcome, and Fall Ball is also for newer players looking to improve in the sport, and hopefully at some point play on the travel teams, and play in the spring season with their local NCJLA club.

The Boys Youth/Middle School Program will be a combination of instruction, live ball play, scrimmages against other Fall Ball programs in the area, and clinics from coaches and well known lacrosse players in the area. We expect all Tomahawks Spring Coaches to participate, and will be joined by Team NorCal coaches as appropriate.
Fall Ball will be important element of team building and selection for the advanced Tomahawks teams (A and B level teams). Fall Ball is mandatory for youth/middle school Tomahawks players seeking to play on the more advanced teams in the spring season.
This year we'll repeat our very successful program from last year. We'll have Fall Ball for Girls Youth (U8/U10/U12/U14) on Sundays starting September 10th for 8 weeks. We'll have a super coaching staff headed up by Colleen Niklaus, former Head Varsity Coach at St Ignatius College Prep.
This is NOT for current members of the travel team - they have regular practices and tournaments in the Fall. This is for girls looking to improve int he sport, and perhaps hopefully join the travel team.
