The age divisions are:
6U - 2016-2017 Non Contact - Play M/W
The 6U program is an introduction to lacrosse. This is a house league but exhibition games can be arranged against other house 6U teams. The game is played 3 on 3 half-court games to reduce cost and help develop skills. There is one goalie per game, but all of the players take turns trying out the position. The 6U play with a smaller “rage cage” net.

All Female players playing in the Co-ed League are allowed to play down one age level if they choose.
All ages groups may play on weekends in addition to the above-mentioned games. Practices are coach-specific.
For every age group mentioned above, there will also be a girls-only option. If you are not interested in playing in the Co-ed League please select the Girls option when registering.
The 2022 season is the first season for the Girls-only league so please be patient with us at the beginning of this season. We may have to combine zones and age groups for us to have something for the girls to participate in. Please be assured that there will be something girls-only we just won't know what that looks like until registrations are in.

Lacrosse equipment is similar to hockey. If you are just starting out and you play hockey, then you already have almost everything you need. Check out the image below to see what you may need:
For players wanting to play goalie, your club may supply you with your protective gear. Speak to your coach at a pre-season camp about this.
Box lacrosse is played on indoor hockey rinks with some different markings. These include a larger crease area and transition zones to name a couple.
This keeps the game moving and why it is called the fastest game on two feet.
