Welcome to CitySideLax
Year-round development opportunities for all players
CitySideLax offers camps, clinics, lessons and teams carefully designed to meet the development needs of all our players. No matter what time of year or what skill level, we are here to help you up your game.
We created CitySideLax to be an 'athletic classroom' where young athletes could immerse themselves in all aspects of the game, as well as the underlying principles that apply to life as well as lacrosse. And just like an academic classroom, we put a lot of thought and planning into the curriculum we offer. We strive to give every player the right challenge and the right inspiration they need to move to the next level.
Drew Snider and Chris O'Dougherty co-founded CitySideLax in 2013. As teammates they won a Major League Lacrosse Championship in 2014 and in 2015 took home the bronze medal with Team USA. They are devoted coaches and strive to provide a high-quality lacrosse experience to all.
Committed to passing along our love for the game
Coaches make or break a player's experience, period. And CitySide coaches are a cut above any other lacrosse program in the Pacific Northwest. Their experience sets them apart, and their love for teaching the game brings it all together.
I had so many wonderful coaches help me achieve my goals as a player. I never could have done it without them. Now it is my privilege to pass the stick and help the next generations of players achieve their goals. And frankly, I'm finding that even more rewarding.
The CitySide Difference
Creating life-long learners through the athletic classroom
Development is at the heart of everything we do at CitySide Lax. Through our focus on F.U.N. we help our players grow from beginners to elites, while our core values of P.I.C.A. prepare them to excel both on and off the field.
