Our Mission

The Eureka Lacrosse Club is a competitive boys lacrosse program comprised of students who attend Eureka High School or one of its feeder schools.

The Club's tradition is built on the love for the game of lacrosse, enthusiasm for introducing the sport to new players, exceptional coaching, and superior sportsmanship.  Our ultimate goal is to help all our student-athletes achieve their highest potential by motivating them to play to the best of their ability and collectively surpassing individual aspirations for the greater good of the team. 

We support our players and coaches with a deep network that includes alumni, former coaches, parent volunteers, and board members (past and present).

In Missouri, boys lacrosse programs are governed by the Missouri Scholastic Lacrosse Association, an all-volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to growing the sport of lacrosse in the state of Missouri. 




Eureka prepares to face off against Rockhurst in the 2010 State Championship at Lindenwood University

The Eureka Lacrosse Club began with the 2002-03 season , inspired by Mrs. Sarah Anderson, a Ridge Meadows elementary teacher in the Rockwood School District who was eager to get her boys playing the game.   At that time, the sport of lacrosse was just becoming popular in the St. Louis area. 
The Eureka Lacrosse Club added youth programs in 2008 and now serves almost 200 boys from 3rd through 12th grade who desire to play lacrosse.  Teams are made up of boys who attend Eureka High School and its feeder schools. 

From some inauspicious beginnings, at least from a win-loss perspective, this high school program has become highly competitive and successful.

  • The Varsity team received invitations to  the Missouri Scholastic Association Lacrosse state tournament for the last 6 seasons in a row and in 11 of the first 20 seasons overall. Eureka reached the State Finals twice (2009 and 2010), State Semifinals three times (2014, 2018, 2019), and State Quarterfinals three times (2013, 2016, 2022).

  • The Junior Varsity team won the 2018 state championship and placed third in the state playoffs in 2011.

  • The Jr. Wildcats youth lacrosse program started in 2010 and won the St. Louis Youth Championship in the very first year. 



The League is divided into six conferences:  MCC, Metro, Gateway, Suburban 12, Suburban Central and Suburban West. Eureka is part of the Suburban West conference with Lafayette, Marquette, Lindbergh, Parkway South, and Seckman. 

Each team plays every other team in their conference and then may choose other teams outside of their conference for a minimum of 12-14 games per season.

Teams are seeded at a coaches meeting for playoffs using In-State LaxNumbers rankings as a guide.  Playoff seeding takes into account head to head play and strength of schedule. The top 12 teams play for the State Championship with the top 4 seeds getting
first round byes. The next 12 teams compete for the Gateway Cup with the top 4 seeds getting first round byes.



In 2010, the 8th grade Youth team claimed the St. Louis Youth Lacrosse Association championship.
