About Minutemen Lacrosse:
Cocoa Beach High School started lacrosse for both boys and girls as Junior Varsity ONLY teams in 2013. In 2014, both teams moved to Varsity programs. The teams do not receive direct funding from the school. They, along with the other Brevard County Public High School Lacrosse teams, are funded through player fees, ticket receipts, business sponsorships, and fundraising events organized and managed by their School Program Booster Clubs which are overseen by the Friends of Brevard Lacrosse (FBL) organization.
In 2017 the Cocoa Beach Colonials club was formed to provide a venue for 7-9 grade (under 14) to develop their skills and compete in games with kids their own age. The Colonials are run through Brevard Lacrosse Alliance (BLA) with coaches from Cocoa Beach Lacrosse. BLA offers both spring and fall leagues plus summer specialty camps. During the spring season the Colonials practice with the Cocoa Beach High School (CBHS) Varsity players at the school and are encouraged to attend and support all the organizations activities (games, fundraising, family socials). On the weekend the Colonials participate in games with recreational teams from the other local high schools development teams.
