Washington Schoolgirls Lacrosse Association Youth League (WaGLAXD) is a developmental, athletic organization that aspires to provide a high-quality experience to every athlete. A high-quality experience is one in which every athlete: Has fun playing
Congratulations on considering this wondeful game for you player. Womens lacrosse is a game of finesse, teamwork and endurance. It is a game that is both simple to learn and difficult to master.
Below you will find the basic information you will need to get started.
What equipment does my Player need?
Women's lacrosse requires the following equipment:
-- Lacrosse Stick (make sure you borrow or buy a WOMENS lacrosse stick, which is very different from a men's stick)
-- Goggles - Goggles need to be US Lacrosse Approved
-- Mouthguard - Not clear - It needs to be visible to umpires froma distance
Everything else is optional - really!
Where would my player play?
Currently, WaGLAX requires that players play for their School team, if one exists. If the player's school does not have a team then they are required to play for the program that is assigned to their geographic residence. Occasionally, situations exist where a player needs to play for a different program than the one assigned. This transfer can only be accomplished through a waiver process. If granted, a waiver is valid for only one year.
For details about where you would play, please see Appendix B of the Handbook. Links to each program or appropriate contact information is provided in the Vertical Menu "Program" tab.
How much does it cost to play?
Each program has its own registration fee. You should refer to the appropriate program WEB site or contact information for details.
If you have any questions about getting started please do no hesitate to contact any member of the Board. We look forward to welcoming you into the sport!
IF you are a new PROGRAM, please contact
and we will work with you to get you started and into the League. While currently new programs do not need to be identified until mid-Janaury of the year they want to play, there is value in contacting us early so we can help assure that your first year(s) are successful - for both Program Administrators and Players!
