After weeks practicing indoors at Golden Hill Elementary School, boys and girls in the city’s Recreation Department Youth Lacrosse League took to the outdoors.
They’ve been playing home games on the athletic fields at Haverhill High School against youth teams in the Mass Bay Boys Lacrosse League and Mass Bay Girls Lacrosse League from area communities.
The teams also play away games. The youth lacrosse program began in February and goes until June 14.
About 132 boys and 36 girls, ages 7 and up, are in the program.
