Lacrosse At CDM


Unlike other CIF sports, and because lacrosse is still developing, schools are not separated by size for competition purposes in boys lacrosse. Therefore, CDM competes in the same division with all of the schools across southern California. For the program to be consistently ranked among the best in the sport is a tribute to the competitive spirit and quality of the student-athletes at CDM.

Unlike other sports at CDM, boys lacrosse competes as an independent. After winning five consecutive Pacific Coast League Championships, with a combined record of 48-0, the program acquired independent status after the 2012 season.

Over the past several years, many student-athletes from the CDM lacrosse program have gone on to play lacrosse at the collegiate level. In the past five years, the program has helped place players at Colorado, Drexel, Holy Crosse, Lehigh, Loyola, Notre Dame, SMU, UCSB and Yale . Drexel, Lehigh Loyola, Notre Dame and Yale are among the best college lacrosse programs in the nation.

Originally played by the Native Americans, lacrosse is our nation's oldest sport, and it combines so many of the skills and strategies necessary for success in other popular sports such as basketball, football, soccer and water polo. The lacrosse staff believes very strongly in the value of multi-sport participation and feel the lacrosse program at CDM provides kids with a competitive environment in which to learn additional skills, both on and off the field, that will ultimately make them better students, athletes, and citizens.

Lacrosse is a spring sport. In the off-season, we encourage our players to compete alongside classmates at CDM in other sports. In the fall, boys can choose from cross-country, football and water polo. In the winter, the options are basketball and wrestling.

6th Period Lacrosse
Lacrosse is offered throughout the entire academic year as a 6th period class. In order to participate in 6th period lacrosse, student-athletes must have the approval of the head coach and the support of their academic counselor. Participants, in good standing, can "take" 6th period lacrosse for a grade in lieu of the Physical Education requirement. These classes meet a minimum of 5 hours each week during the off-season until mid-February when the team begins its regular in-season practices. Incoming freshmen are encouraged to play football or run cross country. Those freshmen wishing to take lacrosse as a 6th period class n the first semester must have prior approval from the head coach in order to do so.

In-Season Practices & Games
Daily practices are held for approximately two hours each day in the late afternoon (4:00 PM - 6:00 PM). The majority of the lacrosse coaching staff are "walk-on" coaches with professional obligations off-campus. The later practices allow these coaches more time to complete their outside responsibilities before spending time with the kids at practice. Occasionally, kids may be asked to report early to review game film or stay a bit later to accomplish a short in-season weight training session.

Games begin in early March and are typically played on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays or Saturdays. As with other spring sports, our game schedule conflicts with some second semester holidays and vacations. The lacrosse program realizes this family time is very important, and typically adjusts the practice and game schedule so families can enjoy a reasonable portion of ski week and/or spring break. 

The regular season ends on the last Saturday in April. Orange County playoffs begin the following week. Traditionally, the Sea Kings have been invited to participate in the post-season playoffs, which continue until the end of the second week in May.

Upon completion of the season, 6th period off-season lacrosse resumes until the end of the academic year.
