"Desert stiX is a great way for girls to learn the skill and teamwork involved in playing lacrosse, as well as the basic rules and different playing positions. Our daughter has been getting pointers from her coach and developing her skills at practices, with lots of opportunities to play against other girls that are learning the sport, too. It has been exciting to watch her learn lacrosse and she is having a lot of fun! It's a great way to make new friends with girls from all over the Valley. We appreciate all that you've done to bring this sport to our community!"
"Desert stiX has been an amazing experience for my daughter. She was brand new to the game and with all the excellent coaches and positive support, lacrosse quickly became her favorite sport after years of playing soccer. She has been able to grow her skills rapidly with the extra experience of being on the Desert Heat travel team. She has really enjoyed traveling to California several times for tournaments and made many great friends. Thanks to all the coaches for their tremendous support for her as a player and her personal growth!"
