AVON GIRLS LACROSSE OVERVIEW
Avon Lacrosse is proud to offer lacrosse opportunities for girls from the 3rd-8th grades. Our program is considered to be a local travel program that gives our teams the opportunity to play lacrosse against other teams in the Clevelend Area.
The middle school team is for 7th and 8th grade girls.
The youth team is for 5th and 6th graders and may be set up as a team or squads depending on registration numbers.
The bantam team is for 3rd and 4th graders and is designed to be an introduction into lacrosse and will include instruction and small sided games throughout the season.
The season begins in mid February and runs through May. Middle school teams will practice around 3x times per week while the youth teams will practice around 2x per week on average. We recognize other commitments that girls might have during the season and respect the time needed for these other commitments as well.
Just as Girls Lacrosse has exploded in popularity nationally over the last ten years, Cleveland and surrounding communities have also seen tremendous growth in Girls Lacrosse. Many colleges in Ohio already offer Women’s Lacrosse including Ohio State, Kent State, Akron, Cincinatti and Baldwin Wallace just to name a few. Dozens of local communities in our surrounding area already offer some form of girls lacrosse either in high school, Middle school and/or youth teams including: Avon Lake, Bay Village, Rocky River, Westlake, Medina, Strongsville, Olmsted Falls, Brecksville and Brunswick just to name a few.
