DOC’S: MAKING LACROSSE LOCAL

Doc’s league is the only program offering boys youth lacrosse in the Queens borough.

The Doc’s Queens Lacrosse program posed after their first session last Mar. 19. College student Ky Morrison (back row, 2nd from left) volunteered with the program, along with father and volunteer coach Don O’Buckley (back row, far right) and athletes from the Benjamin Cordozo High School Lacrosse team (back row) who came out to help the kids every week they did not have their own game.

Doc’s Queens Lacrosse began because director Bradley Siciliano’s 11-year-old son and his friends wanted to play the sport. The family could not find any options in Queens, so Siciliano, at the urging of a friend, decided to start a team of his own.

In 2010, Doc’s Queens Lacrosse was founded as the Queens affiliate of Doc’s NYC. It initially only offered clinics and informal scrimmages, but this year it is expanding to include a 10-week recreational house league for boys ages 8-14 and a six-week clinic for younger boys ages 6 and 7. There has been wide interest in the program for younger boys, Siciliano says, and he notes that it may end up with a larger attendance than the original program.

Doc’s league is the only program offering boys youth lacrosse in the Queens borough. Though girls are able to play in Doc’s league if they want to (and have done so successfully), Siciliano says that girls who are interested in playing the girls version, which is “substantially different” than the boys version taught at Doc’s, should look into The Queens of Lax, a program designed specifically for girls.

Siciliano says that Doc’s is designed for developing critical lacrosse skills while having fun, and says it is appropriate for players of varying skill levels.
