Bellingham Warriors Lacrosse (BWL) is a 501.c.3 charitable organization formed in 2012 to develop boys (K-8) lacrosse in the Bellingham, WA area. The organization is driven to provide a "best-in-class" lacrosse program and experience for our student athletes in grades K-8.
Prior to 2012, the Whatcom Warriors boy’s high school team was started in 2004 by long-time lacrosse supporter Greg Hill.  East coast transplants and former collegiate players Peter Buetow and John Heritage and other committed parents started Bellingham Youth Lacrosse in 2006 with 10 players. In 2007 we fielded our first boy’s league team at the grades 5/6 level; in 2010 we fielded our first girl’s league team at the grades 5/6 level; in 2014 we fielded our first girl’s league team at the high school level. In 2013, our youth and high school programs merged into one organization, and now operate under one board and one name – Bellingham Warriors Lacrosse.
Since 2006, our youth  numbers have grown significantly with about 150 players now in program. In 2014 we offer developmental programs for boys and girls, and field multiple league teams at all levels for boys and at grades 7/8 and high school level for girls. Our boy’s high school program has also grown in numbers and in level of competition.  In 2013 our boys varsity team ended the regular season undefeated and ranked #1 in the state in Div. II.  In 2014 our boys varsity team began playing in Div. I.
In 2017 Girls youth lacrosse created their own club.  The High School lacrosse teams also split off and formed their own clubs.  In 2018 BWL will support our K-8 youth as we continue to grow the game!
