There is know doubt that Lacrosse is more expensive overall then Soccer. But lets put everything in perspective. PAL runs a very good league from grades 3-8 and all it cost you is the registration fee and equpment. soccer at the same grades costs registration equipment and TRAINER FEES which I really don't understand. I pay I guess about $1,000 fro Sept to May to have some guy with a English accent watch my kid dribble around cones. the problem is every soocer club (town) does the same thing so if you want your kid to play soccer thats the what you are up against
