The many and varied programs and services offered by the Wyckoff Y will keep the entire family busy from dawn to dusk.
BUILDING BLOCKS LACROSSE
Tribe Lacrosse has merged with Building Blocks Lacrosse (BBL) – the best lacrosse player development organization in NJ – to form BBL North. Their innovative top level training classes focus on fast paced exercises that produce significant results while growing the love of the game.
The long-established lacrosse development partnership between the Wyckoff YMCA and Tribe Lacrosse remains a cornerstone for the newly created BBL North to build upon. “We are thrilled to bring BBL’s best in class, youth lacrosse development model to Bergen County. This partnership will provide local access to elite level lacrosse training for boys and girls the way it should be done” said Jeff Eischen, BBL North Director.
Being able to increase the availability of lacrosse to more kids and offer strong fundamental training is part of BBL’s mission. This effort continues the Wyckoff YMCA’s tradition of offering innovative, top quality programs to its members.” Jerry O’Loughlin COO BBL.
