Participants from the surrounding area are welcome as space allows. Delta LAX is run by Delta Education Foundation volunteers and a limited paid staff. 2017 was our first season, so know that we are all focused on developing a program that will help all our children take part and succeed.
What are the age ranges?
Currently we are accepting players from 1st grade to 8th grade.
What is Delta Breeze Lacrosse?
Delta Breeze Lacrosse is a new youth lacrosse club program designed to teach and expand the game of lacrosse into East Contra Costa County at the middle school level. Our immediate plan is to attract 7th and 8th graders to the sport through practices, scrimmages and informal games during the 2019 spring lacrosse season. Our longer term goal is to build a competitive NCJLA team to compete in the 2020 NCJLA spring lacrosse season.

How can I help Delta LAX?
Delta LAX is always in need of volunteers to assist with the many aspects of League administration. Please contact Delta LAX for further information. We are always looking for sponsors who are willing to sponsor scholarships for disadvantaged players.
What is the Delta LAX Policy on Refunds of League Fees?
All Delta LAX registration fees include a non-refundable $15 registration fee. The remainder of the registration fee will be refunded if the refund request is received by the Delta LAX Director of Registration and Draft prior to the season start. Delta LAX will not refund any league fees after the start of practice. The Delta Education Foundation Board of Directors can make exceptions to this Policy if reviewed and approved at a normal board meeting. There is also an additional non-refundable processing fee charged by Active.com.
How is my daughter/son placed on a team?
Before practices begin in February the players will go through a draft to determine which team players will be playing on. The coach and manager's sons/daughters are guaranteed to be placed on the same team. (If you would like to be a coach or manage please contact us.)
Can my daughter/son be paired with his friend or our carpool buddies?
Most likely yes! Make sure to indicate your Buddy/Carpool requests during registration. We will do our best to honor those requests but cannot guarantee player placement.
Can my siblings play on the same team?
Yes, but we reserve the right to make changes during the draft. The best possible way to guarantee that two players are on the same team is to have their parents coach the team together, or have one parent coach and then make sure they draft that other player.
How do we keep in touch with the coaches?
Please download the app TeamSnap. This is the best way to keep in touch.
Is scholarship assistance available?
Maybe. Please contact us for questions.
