The Dallas Deuces Lacrosse Organization (Deuces) promotes lacrosse among youth residing in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, in particular, those youths attending parochial schools or players with siblings that currently attend or have attended Jesuit College Preparatory School. The Deuces will teach the fundamentals of the game of lacrosse to all their players, along with advanced skills where warranted, all the while emphasizing sportsmanship, respect for all participants and teamwork. The Deuces spring teams participate in the North Dallas Fort Worth Lacrosse League DFWLL at both the D1, D2, and D3 level where applicable. At every level, a primary goal of the Deuces will be to engender a love of the sport of lacrosse while creating a challenging, engaging learning environment where children of differing levels of skill and development can learn the game of lacrosse. The Deuces have volunteer coaches at the 1st-4th grade level and paid coaches at 5th-8th grade all of whom are committed to the development of both a player’s skill and character.
The Deuces was formed as a Parochial School feeder lacrosse program for Jesuit College Preparatory School. The Deuces were admitted to the DFWLL under the following eligibility rules: Notwithstanding the eligibility rules, students at a DPL School (i.e. all of the Catholic Schools in the area), Good Shepherd Episcopal School (11110 Midway Rd, Dallas), St. John’s Episcopal (848 Harter Rd), and the Cistercian School (3660 Cistercian Rd), or those lacrosse players who are siblings of current Deuces players or Jesuit students, have the option of playing for the Deuces. Otherwise, current eligibility rules apply.
If you have any questions regarding whether you can play for the Deuces or not, please email Tiffany Surran prior to registration.
