Known for its tropical climate, laid-back lifestyle and cruise ship visitors, Key West, Fla., now is staking its claim as the southernmost home of youth lacrosse in the continental United States.
Located closer to Havana than Miami, this tiny island has developed a reputation as an enticing vacation destination for mainlanders. But don’t be misled, said Alex Smith, co-founder of the Key West Youth Lacrosse League (KWYLL). “There are a lot of families down here too.”
The Key West Youth Lacrosse League is for girls and boys ages 5-15 years. Emphasis will be placed on having fun, skill development, teamwork, sportsmanship, and promoting good will among all teams and individuals.
