Pinnacle high school boys lacrosse competes in the Arizona Lacrosse League, drawing from 9th-12th grade student athletes in Paradise Valley Unified School District (PVUSD).



1) Access the East Field through the main stadium gate on Tuesday and soccer home games.

Pinnacle Boys Lacrosse will be practicing and playing games on the East Field at Pinnacle High School throughout the season. The East Field is behind the tennis courts. 

To get to the fields, park in the main parking lot near the wallball courts. 

The boys and girls soccer teams each have a few home games left, and on those gamedays the tennis plaza gate will be locked to funnel all traffic through the stadium.

In the event that the gate to the East Field is locked before practice due to games:

- DO NOT jump the gates or fences. Campus Security will be looking for this behavior and may get us expelled.

- DO walk through the main gate of the stadium, walk around the track to the East Field and access it through the open gate there.

  2) LAST CHANCE: Order your Pinnacle team bags by Friday!

As part of our UnderArmour sponsorship, we can purchase these UA team bags in navy blue with PINACLE LACROSSE screened on the other side and the player's name and number screened on top for just $90. 

The bags take four weeks to arrive, so we'd like to get our order in by this Friday, January 19 so everybody has them before the games begin. 

If you would like a bag and haven't emailed already, just click the email link and let us know to get yours before it's too late! 

 3) Team store shipments arrive this week!

If you placed an order for team or sideline gear before the holidays, those orders are due to arrive later this week in one shipment.

We will bring them to practice and distribute accordingly to the players that ordered gear as soon as they arrive, likely on Friday.

We will open one more team and equipment store for latecomers towards the end of the month. 

4) SI Play app information will be added soon

Downloaded SI Play from the App Store or Google Play and not sure what to do next? Sit tight for now.

The app really isn't useful until the game schedule has been published and the players have been assigned to a Pinnacle team, which won't happen until the end of January.  

We'll share more information as soon as the website and app have been populated with player and game information. 

See you at the East Field by 6 pm Tuesday with all your gear, mouthguard, cleats, water and be ready to go to work!

With the spring semester underway, it's time for the 2018 lacrosse season to begin!

The Board and Coaching Staff have been working hard to deliver a great experience for all our athletes this year, regardless of the player's skill level or team. 

Here's a rough outline of our season for planing purposes:

  • Practices for all teams all season are Monday through Friday unless otherwise noted, announced or amended.
  • All players are expected to be on the field, in full pads and throwing with a partner five minutes before practice begins. 
  • For most players, that means being at the field at least 15 minutes prior to the beginning of practice.
  • Players who are not fully ready to begin practice at the allotted time disrespect their coaches, their teammates and themselves. They will run extra, and may cause their teammates to run extra as well. 
  • In the event of a cancellation, the club will notify everyone via email, website, Instagram, Twitter and the SI Play mobile app (check the App Store or Google Play). 


  • Monday Jan 15th is MLK Day, and all PVUSD fields are closed. 
  • Pre-season practice starts Tuesday, Jan 16th on our East Field from 6:15p to 8:15p for all players.
  • JV and Varsity will each get their own end of the field when we are not conditioning together.


On Monday, Jan 29th we will announce the first round of squad selections for JV and D1/D2 Varsity teams. The practices will then be split into two separate, staggered practice times.

  • The early practice slot will be approximately 6:00-7:30p.
  • The late slot will be approximately 6:45-8:15p.

The final rosters for each team will be set on February 12.

  • JV rosters can remain fluid throughout season
  • Varsity rosters be a little more rigid depending on D2 team's playoff eligibility


  • League games will begin February 26 and run through April 21.
  • Playoffs for Varsity teams will run through May 5.
  • The schedule will be announced as soon as possible, and may have some changes in days, times and locations after initial anouncement. 


Spring Break for PVUSD will be from March 12-16.

  • Our fields will be closed to games and practices
  • We may have some games with out-of-state opponents for Varsity D1 and possibly D2.
  • The focus will be to front-load those to allow families to enjoy a few days away during the back half of the week.  


Pinnacle's D1 Varsity will be participating in the Best of the West Tournament this year.

  • February 23-25 in Las Vegas.
  • We will be taking two 15-passenger vans to and from the tournament.
  • Hotels have been reserved for 20+ players, coaches and chaperones.
  • All meals, tournament fees, transportation and lodging will be handled by the team.
  • Parents and families are invited to attend the tournament if they like, but all lodging, meals and transportation must be handled by the attendees themselves. 
  • The cost is expected to be less than $400, but final pricing will be made available once the details are finalized. 

That's everything we know at this moment.

More to come as the season gets underway and we get some shipping dates on team gear, practice gear and our new uniforms.

Let's hit the ground running on the 16th and set the tone for a great season of lacrosse!
