Jerome Jones, sports director for San Luis YMCA, said there was a demand in the community from parents with children who played and had moved here.
"I researched for three to four months and talked to parents," Jones said. "We contacted Mark Lea, the head coach of lacrosse at Cal Poly, and hosted clinics during spring league."
Jones was able to get the spring league going, rounding up 80 players from ages 8 to 15, all separated into appropriate age divisions. The new leagues have even seen interest on the female side; Jones said there are 20 girls involved. Five of the female athletes play in both boys' and girls' lacrosse games.
With such a successful spring season, Jones helped organize a summer league with 85 players and an added team in Santa Maria.
An Arroyo Grande native, Jones never played lacrosse but has avidly watched college games for the last 10 years.
"I really enjoy how fast paced the game is, and the physical nature of the game is something kids really enjoy," he explained.
The director said the focus now is to grab as many kids as possible and continue to promote the sport.
"This has been a big community involvement program; all the coaches are volunteers," Jones said.
Jones said that within the next three to five years, he'd like to have 200 kids involved in the spring and summer leagues.
Jones said part of the battle is educating and promoting the game to build interest.
"You can see why people are excited to play," Jones said. "Kids like running around and bumping into each other; they like the challenge."
John Mackinnon and Jones are both excited for the future of lacrosse on the Central Coast and want to continue promoting the new program.
Jones and the coaches said they'd love to see support from the community.
