At the U11, U13 and U15 level, players are split into teams of equal ability and compete in the Mass Bay Girls Lacrosse League. The number of teams at each level depends on registration numbers. We have typically had 2 teams at U11, 3 teams at U13 and three teams at U15 in order to accomodate all those who want to play. Teams will practice twice a week. This season all teams in indiviual age groups will have a combined station based practice. Meaning, U11 teams will alll practice together, U13 teams will all practice together and U15 teams will all practice together. Games are played both home and away on Sunday afternoons.
Players will gain a more in depth knowledge of the game and build upon fundamental skills. To ensure that teams are equal in ability no preference will be given to carpool situations or requests for friends to be on the same team. Uniform included with registration fee.
