Renegades lacrosse, founded in 2002, provides the opportunity for young players to learn and participate in the game of lacrosse. The Renegades Lacrosse program is for Boys and Girls in grades K to 8 within the Morris Hills Regional High School sending districts. This includes Rockaway Township, Denville, Wharton, Rockaway Borough, and Mine Hill.
Mini Renegades Clinic includes the Kindergarten to 2nd grade level where we provide instruction and introduce boys and girls to the game of lacrosse. Generally the clinics are run one day a week for six to eight weeks depending on weather and field availability. Clinics generally start once the weather warms up in May.

Our Motto: "Together"
We work TOGETHER – players, parents and coaches from all five towns work together by volunteering their time and talents, on the field and off the field, unselfishly for the benefit of the overall program.
We play TOGETHER – players prioritize team goals above individual goals and benefit from the satisfaction of competing and improving together as a team.
We grow TOGETHER – only by working together across the boys and girls programs, throughout all grade levels, can the program continue to grow and prosper in the future.
