From our humble beginnings in the garage of founder Michael Lombardi in 1919 to our official incorporation in 1927 and location on North Avenue, the Laurel Athletic Club has deep roots within the history of athletics in the City of Norwalk. Frequently referred to under the nickname “the Laurels”, the members of the LAC became famous amongst the community as one of the most competitive and successful teams – from baseball and bocce to football and boxing, championship trophies were a common occurrence every season.

The name of the Laurel Athletic Club is still prominent in the name of sports as generous sponsors of numerous teams within the City and surrounding towns, especially for youth athletics. As a non-profit organization, the men and women of the LAC are dedicated to the success of local sports teams and are proud to help the community. In addition, we currently have two members proudly serving our country: one in the United States Army with two completed tours in Operation Iraqi Freedom and over two tours in Operation Enduring Freedom, Afghanistan; the other member recently joined and now is a member of the United States Marine Corps.

2019 will mark the Club’s 100th anniversary and we encourage you to join as a member of the Club and welcome you at our functions and in the bar & restaurant – non-members are required to sign the guest book upon entrance to the Clubhouse.
