Communities

Our league is made up of local community lacrosse programs with dedicated parents and local leaders. We work together to help provide recreational lacrosse programs that support their community.

Level Playing Field

In our U11, U13 and U15 divisions, we level the field of play by dividing up teams based on experience level. The more experienced teams play in the Stars division and the other in the Stripes division.

 

Safety First

We believe in safety first and align our rules with US Lacrosse's guidelines and their recommendations to keep the sport fun and safe.

 

Game & Practice Schedules

Practice schedules are provided by each team at the community level and games are scheduled by the league. They practice during the week and play games on Saturdays from the February to May.
