Welcome To

Southern California Lacrosse Association

Southern California Lacrosse Association ("SCLA") has canceled the 2020 season.

Due to progression and serious threat posed by COVID-19 as well as the guidance from the State of California and local governments restricting gatherings of any size, the SCLA has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 lacrosse season effective immediately.

 

This decision was made after careful deliberation and consideration of possible avenues to play lacrosse this spring, including to potentially postpone the season until late May.

 

This cancellation includes all SCLA related activities requiring gatherings such as practice, clinics, and in-person administrative meetings.

 

While we understand this decision is disappointing, we strongly believe that the health and safety of our families and communities is the priority at this time.

 

In the coming weeks, the SCLA will be working with each town to reconcile administrative items including financial matters. Please contact your town representative for further information and any questions you may have regarding the cancellation of the season.

 

We are eager to get the all clear to resume our daily lives and get the kids back on the fields for the fastest sport on two feet. Please watch for upcoming announcements for summer clinics and other lacrosse opportunities in the future.

The SCLA is a premiere non-profit youth recreational lacrosse league based in Southern California. We support nearly 1,500 youth Boys and Girls lacrosse players across greater Los Angeles.

We strive to provide a safe and fun playing environment for the sport of lacrosse to grow and thrive.

The SCLA includes playing levels for Beginners and more experienced players.

Divisions include Boys U9, U11, U13, U15, and Girls Elementary School and Girls Middle School teams.

SCLA coaches include former college lacrosse players, experienced parents, and high school varsity players

SCLA Player Registration Guidelines

Before registering take a minute to review SCLA Registration Guidelines below. Once you have read the guidelines you can register now for the 2020 Spring Season.

SCLA Player Registration Guidelines:

The SCLA has clear guidelines for registration boundaries for players and families. The league requires players to register in Participating Towns based on high school zoned boundaries. For the neighboring communities of Newbury Park, Thousand Oaks and Westlake please confirm your zoned High School in the CVUSD Street Index.

Participating Towns of Agoura, Oak Park, Simi Valley, Ventura, San Fernando Valley, Santa Clarita and Pasadena can utilize My School Locator to confirm your zoned High School district boundaries.    

When a player and/or family’s primary home residence is not located in a local participating town, the league guidelines allow families to register for the program most convenient for their family; pending SCLA approval.

If your primary home residence is located in an SCLA Participating Town but you have substantial and verifiable circumstances precluding registration with your local participating town, then you can request a waiver to play for another program. In this instance please contact the other program and they will submit a waiver request to the SCLA on your behalf. If you plan to request a waiver, do not register with either program until a final waiver decision has been made by the SCLA.

All waiver requests will be determined no later than January 15th. If a waiver request is approved then the player must remain in that program for the duration for their playing eligibility. If you plan to request a waiver, then do not register in either program until the waiver has been decided, then register in that program.

Please note that the SCLA usually does not grant a waiver for reason of wanting to play with friends. But the league will consider all requests and we follow up with them to make sure you know what the outcome is.”

The SCLA is making an impact!

You may be a new parent to the SCLA and just finished a spring season.  After seeing your player pick up a stick and run up and down the field,  you might think it's such a fun game. But for many who have played year after year in the SCLA, it's made a difference in their lives and in their communities. 

Chris Reilly, one of our tireless and dedicated board members has seen his kids, and many others, come up and go through the SCLA program . He has compiled a list of some of  those kids and what happened to them in their journey playing the game they love. Check out our wall of fame and click on the news links and see what future your son or daughter could have playing the game they love.
