The goal of the program is to prepare the girls to play at the high school level and possibly in college as well. Queens of Lacrosse teaches the girls lacrosse during the school year and helps them find camps to attend during the summer, offering scholarships when possible. “We have guest speakers come down every spring,” Albines adds. “We take great pride in anyone who benefits from our program.”
Albines, a former lacrosse player at Queens College and captain of the NYC Empire State Lacrosse Team, heads a team of five coaches, all of whom have experience playing lacrosse at a competitive level.
The Queens of Lacrosse program caters to beginners as well as experienced players who are in first through 12th grades. Sessions are held twice a year, including a 10-week program in the spring ($175) and a six-week program in the fall ($105). Sessions are held at the Martin Van Buren High School, at 230-17 Hillside Ave. in Queens Village. For more information or to register, visit queensoflacrosse.com or call 917-662-5438.
