Girls Program

The Lower Bucks Lacrosse Girls Program is for girls in PreK through 8th grade. Our program is designed to develop our young athletes to become complete lacrosse players with a strong foundation in the fundamentals of the game. We do this by stressing individual skills within the team play concept. We follow the US Lacrosse Lacrosse Athlete Development Model (LADM) to guide our training and philosophy. Our goal is to foster a love and respect for the game of lacrosse and to provide our girls with the skills necessary for successful interscholastic high school and hopefully college careers. We compete against other teams in the Philadelphia Area Girls Lacrosse League (PAGLA).

No previous experience is required for any of the age groups. We encourage new players to join at any level. It is never too late to start playing lacrosse.

Divisions

Girls teams are broken down by age and ability level. Player evaluations are held in January to help the coaches assess the skill level of each player and place each boy on the appropriate team. Teams are entered into the PAGLA division where we believe they will have the greatest chance at success. All players in these divisions are required to have full equipment. If your daughter is looking for a basic introduction to lacrosse, check out our TryLax Program.

Games will be played in a 7 vs. 7 format on half size fields with regulation goals.

Girls Equipment

To participate in girl’s lacrosse, you will need a stick, mouth guard, goggles, and cleats. Players are not permitted to participate in practices or games without both a mouthguard and goggles.

For those new to the sport, you can purchase a starter stick and goggles from any big box sporting goods store; just be sure to purchase a girls stick, as the boy’s sticks have different lengths and pockets, and are not permitted in the girls game. If you are purchasing your equipment in season, see your coach for lacrosse equipment coupons from our partner, Dick's Sporting Goods.

Uniforms are the same from year to year. Once you purchase a uniform you can use it for as long as it fits.
