Lacrosse Team Names

Maybe you’re getting some bros together for a rec league season. Perhaps you’re starting yet another professional lacrosse league.

Either way, we’ve got a huge list of lacrosse team names for you. Some are funny, some are cool, and others are just dumb lacrosse puns to make you chuckle.

The Best Lacrosse Team Names for 2023

Everyone likes to brag that today’s lacrosse was also played by Native Americans. But that’s not entirely true.

Native Americans didn’t have baskets. They used sticks. Also, they didn’t wear helmets, the balls were solid wood, and matches often went from sun-up to sun-down.

These games are not the same.

Also, people came to their games, so that’s different.

Witty Lacrosse Names for 2023

Lacrosse and wit don’t seem to go hand-in-hand, but they do. Is it a coincidence that schools with good med programs also tend to have good lacrosse programs?
