Welcome to Groton Mystic Lacrosse

Groton Mystic Lacrosse Association is dedicated to providing a safe, fun environment where all players are given the opportunity to learn lacrosse, and build self-esteem and confidence. Players learn to play as a part of a team through participation in games and practices. The organization is open to the youth of Groton, CT and surrounding areas that do not have a youth lacrosse organization.
