2024 SPRING LACROSSE
As lacrosse continues to grow on a national level, so does the Carrollton Lacrosse program! In the last few years, we have introduced the sport to 5–8-year-olds in the Flex6 format, added girls’ lacrosse and started our own recreation league which is the Carrollton Lacrosse 6v6 League. We will continue to offer all programs this Spring and below is a detailed overview.
Flex6: This is a non-contact program for Boys and Girls 5–8 years old as of Aug 31, 2023. Players only need a lacrosse stick and a mouthpiece. No other equipment is required. This is a fast and fun way for young players to get introduced to lacrosse.
Flex 6 Practice Dates and Times: Flex6 will be once a week, every Monday starting January 29, 6:30-7:30PM. Parents are encouraged to attend and participate if they have played lacrosse or just want to be involved. The season will end March 18, 2024. Practices to be held at Avenger Field.
Girls Lacrosse: This program is for Girls who are 9–13 years old as of Aug 31, 2023 (no 8th graders). This program will teach the fundamentals of the game which include cradling, throwing, catching, and scooping. Mandatory equipment needed for girls’ lacrosse is a stick, mouthpiece, and lacrosse eye masks. Pending the number of registrants, girls will either scrimmage each other or be divided into small teams to play round robin style, intramural games toward the end of the season. If we do find local opponents, we will try and schedule games for the Spring.
Girls Lacrosse Dates and Times: Monday’s from 6:30-7:30PM, starting on January 29th and ending March 25th. All practices are at Avenger Field. If you have women’s lacrosse experience or just want to be involved in the growth of this sport in the area, please let us know!
Carrollton Lacrosse League (6v6): Available to Boys who are 8–13 years old as of Aug 31, 2023 (no 8th graders). The league will be split into two divisions – 4/5th Grade and 6/7th Grade. Players will be drafted, and parents will be notified as to what team their child is on prior to the beginning of league play on January 29th. This is a ‘full pads’ league and participation in this program will require all mandatory equipment including lacrosse stick, helmet, shoulder pads, elbow pads, gloves, mouthpiece, and protective cup. This league will be short sticks only, no defensive poles will be allowed.
Carrollton Lacrosse League (6v6) Dates and Times: The first two weeks of this season will be fundamental work and conditioning where coaches will be grading players during that time.
