The clock is ticking on high school lacrosse in Brevard County, and supporters packed the Brevard Public Schools board meeting Tuesday night to urge board members to approve a proposal to fund the sport at the varsity level.

Club lacrosse teams have been in Brevard since 2007, when the Florida High School Athletic Association instituted a five-year grace period for schools to form club teams and then transition to a state-sanctioned program.

The FHSAA ended the grace period a year early, leaving schools no choice but to either fund sanctioned varsity teams or operate lacrosse at a strictly club level. Without the opportunity to play FHSAA teams, prep lacrosse could die locally, leaving about 1,000 youth and student-athletes without the chance to play.
