League Details

  • 7v7 short-sided field format, 20-minute halves with a 5-minute halftime. 
  • Maximum of 15 players, including 1-goalie per team. If a team has more than 15 players sign up, we may split the group into 2-teams, so players get more game play. We can schedule it so that the teams play at different times, so one coach would work with both of their program's teams. Goalies would be welcome to play for both should they want to.
  • 19U, graduated seniors of the 2022 class, are allowed to play in this league.
  • League will run for 6 weeks from June 23 through July 28 on Thursdays only. Teams may organize their own practices; this league is game play only. 
  • League champions will be based on standings from 5 weeks of gameplay and 1 week of playoffs.
  • Playoff seeds will be based on standings (i.e., 1st place game will be 1st place team vs 2nd place team, 3rd place game will be 3rd place team vs. 4th place team, etc.)
  • USLacrosse Membership required (must be valid through July 29, 2022)
  • We will be adhering to all federal, state, local, and site guidelines in regards to social distancing and recommendations to prevent COVID-19
  • To reserve a FULL TEAM SPOT (10 players including a goalie) email Lacrosse Connections. Teams will have 10-Days to have players register from when Lacrosse Connections has confirmed their spot. After that time Lacrosse Connections reserves the right to add players from the Free Agent list to fill out the team should it be deemed to be needed.

WHAT TO EXPECT:

  • 7 v 7 League Play format
  • 10 - 15 players per team including a goalie. Confirmed teams with 15 or more players may be broken into 2 teams (we will work team coordinator to ensure girls are placed on the correct team) in case of an odd number of teams and to increase the amount of game time girls get each week. 
  • 1 regulation game each week. ( 2 - 20-minute halves)
  • Each team is coached by an experienced lacrosse coach 
  • 1 Certified Professional Referees per game*
  • Players receive individual tips on their stick and game situation skills
  • Coach-led half time debriefings on team strategies
  • Table/League manager there for easy check-in and to help answer any questions or concerns for players or their families.
  • This is a competitive league, so it is not ideal for beginners who have never played lacrosse before.
  • Goalies must have their own goalie equipment
*We often partner with our reffing association to provide an avenue for refs to receive training; we believe this helps us all get better. As we partner, refs focus on instruction during half time and time-outs, so as not to affect the quality or length of the games.
