GIRLS SPRING 2018 LACROSSE LEAGUE (2ND-8TH GRADE)

Be part of a youth lacrosse league exclusively for girls.  The emphasis of this program is to develop the girl with the sport of lacrosse.  The goals of the program are to understand the rules of lacrosse, active teamwork, sportsmanship, and foster personal development in a respectful environment led by positive coaching.  IGLA has adopted the US Lacrosse “PLAYERS FIRST” ATHLETE DEVELOPMENT MODEL WHICH MEANS SMALLER FIELDS AND A SMALLER NUMBER OF PLAYERS.  Kids are more engaged, get more touches on the ball, and further develop their skills.

Leagues-IGLA offers two levels of league play: Pink and Purple. Both are recreational, community lacrosse.  Pink teams practice once week.  Purple teams practice twice a week and may travel more for games.  If considering Purple, players must first attend an assessment (visit iglax.org for dates and locations) where participants are assessed on stick skills and game play.  Current purple players do not need to attend an assessment and can register directly for the league.

Registration for all programs is a two-step process:  Register and pay at the Park District of Forest Park AND register at www.iglax.org/ “Sign Up or Sponsor” (Spring 2018 Pink League or 6U FUNdamentals Clinic; Purple players will register and pay the league fee at the Park District of Forest Park , but will receive their IGLA registration link directly through IGLA.)  All registration at www.iglax.org are due by 3/30/18; a late fee will be assessed on any registrations received at www.iglax.org after 3/30/18.
