LACROSSE - ILLINOIS GIRLS LACROSSE ASSOCIATION (GRADES 2-8)
Be a part of a community-based youth lacrosse league exclusively for girls! The emphasis of this program is to develop the girl within 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 ‘Player 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.
IGLA offers two levels of play during the Spring; Pink and Purple. Both are recreational, community based lacrosse programs. Pink teams practice once a week, Purple teams practice twice a week and may travel more for games. If considering Purple, players must first attend an assessment where participants are assessed on stick skills and game play.
