Longmeadow Girls Lacrosse - What to expect

Participate in one of Longmeadow’s most popular youth athletic programs for players of all skill levels in 3rd grade thru 8th grade, and for early learners in kindergarten thru 2nd grade with skills and drills clinics typically held in May. 

Longmeadow Girls' Lacrosse Association (LGLA) provides an athletic program that promotes a positive well balanced coaching philosophy, emphasizing sportsmanship and fair play while teaching valuable life skills in a fun, safe, supportive, instructional environment. It doesn’t matter if you have never played, the objective of LGLA is for participants to learn the exciting game of lacrosse with emphasis on having fun, personal development, and respect for themselves, their teammates, opponents, refs, and their coaches.

The season starts in late March with a few indoor events and ends no later than June 3. Games start in April typically after school vacation in Longmeadow at Wolf Swamp fields or and Glenbrook Middle School, and in surrounding communities. You can expect around 3-4 lacrosse events per week at younger age groups with possibly up to 5 for older players during the season, mainly due to to weather cancellations and rescheduled games.

VOLUNTEER COACHES

We are lucky to have a great volunteer coaching staff and your daughters will learn a lot about the game. We encourage parents to volunteer as assistant coaches to learn the game along with your daughters.  Experienced coaches will help you learn all you need to know about the game and this will hopefully lead to many taking on lead coaching roles in the future.  Starting at the Bantam level is ideal as this is when everyone is developing their lacrosse knowledge and no one is expected to be a lacrosse expert.  Everyone is learning together.
