The Jr. Knighthawks are the youth teams of the National Lacrosse League’s Rochester Knighthawks. The teams receive world-class instruction from Knighthawks players Brad Gillies, Dan Lomas, Dan Dawson, and Luke Laszkiewicz.
In November, the Knighthawks announced a partnership with Rhino Lacrosse and The Blaze Upstate Lacrosse Club to grow the game of box lacrosse in the Rochester area. The Knighthawks selected three tournament-bound teams from the Rhino/Blaze Box Development program to play in the 4th annual Capital Box Lacrosse Classic in Sterling, Va. in January.
The highlight of the year is traveling to compete in the prestigious Jr. NLL Tournament in Oakville, Ontario. The Knighthawks, Buffalo Bandits, Colorado Mammoth, Georgia Swarm, New England Black Wolves, Saskatchewan Rush, Toronto Rock and Vancouver Stealth, along with Jr. Edmonton and Jr. Philadelphia clubs, compete with over 400 players participating across PeeWee, Bantam & Midget age levels.
