Girl's youth teams can expect to play 4 - 20 minute games (two 10 minute halves) . These Jamborees are a great way to train our league refs and give our players some game experience.

Tournament Play

End of season tournament play for each team is determined by the head coach with input from the parents and players. Tournaments generally take place over a weekend in June or July. Team fees for tournaments are not included in the registration fee.

Team Communication

Everett Lacrosse primarly uses email for club/team communication. Teams also use a collaboration tool called Bonzi. It can be accessed online or through their phone app for android/iOS to communicate attendance, schedule changes, car pools, etc.

Parents/Parent Volunteers

US Lacrosse has a great handbook for parents of players. I can be found at: http://www.uslacrosse.org/portals/1/documents/pdf/participants/parents/girls-parent-handbook.pdf

Nearly our entire organization is run by volunteers. Parents are graciously requested to volunteer as a team parent, side line manager, assistant for field set up, manage time during games, manage the scorebook during games, help track & spot game statistics... a great way to learn about the game of lacrosse and experience it together with your child.

Lacrosse Rules

WAGLAX and the Everett Lacrosse Club follow the rules of Girls Youth Lacrosse as determined by the US Lacrosse Association (USLA). You can view the rules on USLA website http://www.uslacrosse.org/rules/boys-rules.aspx.

Where do Girl's lacrosse players come from?

Girl's Lacrosse players come from other sports like basketball, soccer and softball. Some don't play any other sports at all becasue they like the uniqueness of the game.

Many girls play because their brothers play, but don't be fooled. The game of Women's Lacrosse is a game of finesse and strategy allowing girls the opportunity to develop and gain strength in both body and mind.
