About Red Hawks Lacrosse

The West Valley Red Hawks Lacrosse Club is an independent, non-profit youth sports organization and a 501c(3) corporation. The Club was established in 2004 to bring the sport of lacrosse to the Los Gatos-Saratoga area. 

We have established lacrosse programs for boys and girls in grades 1 through 8.  We accept new lacrosse players at every level, and offer competitive A-Level teams at 14U, and 12U most seasons.

Red Hawks families come from across the South Bay, including Los Gatos, Saratoga, Campbell and San Jose.

Registration begins in October and closes mid-December.  The season runs January through May inclusive. Most teams practice twice per week during the season, with games every Saturday and some Sundays March-May.

Our Mission

The Red Hawks are dedicated to developing lacrosse skills, good sportsmanship, teamwork, accountability and respect in a healthy and fun environment. The Red Hawks is a competitive program that develops players in all aspects of the game.

We strive to provide the highest level of coaching instruction at each age level to ensure individual growth in the sport, and respect for the game of lacrosse, teammates, opponents, officials and coaches is the cornerstone of our teaching philosophy.

What People are saying about The Red Hawks

Red Hawks Lacrosse has been a great addition to our family. My son had never played lacrosse before we joined the club. But he was welcomed and made to feel right at home. Now heading into our fourth year of lacrosse we can’t wait for the season to start. My son went from being a beginner to a regular starter and a leader on his team. All of his coaches have invested time and energy to help my son be the best lacrosse player possible. The club is supported by a great community of families who love the game of lacrosse.

Red Hawks Lacrosse has been transformative for our children. Our girls have not only learned a great sport, but they have learned leadership skills, how to win and lose gracefully, and have made lifelong friends via the Red Hawks program. Red Hawks kindled an interest in lacrosse that has led the girls to play on  travel teams, and to play in high school and soon college.

We knew nothing about the game of lacrosse until my son started playing with the Red Hawks in 5th grade.  He played all the way through high school, eventually becoming a captain and leader on the varsity team.  His younger sisters have followed in the sport as well.  The coaching and team sport experiences in Red Hawks have been instrumental for all three of my children on their journey into young adulthood.  The friendships and opportunities for service have deepened our family's ties to the community.  Our family experience would be much poorer without the time we've spent on a Red Hawks roster.
