Logistics for this summer
2016 is a start-up year focusing on core skill building, lacrosse I.Q., teamwork and instructional learning in a practice-only format (no tournament play this summer). We hope to arrange the possibility of a local scrimmage(s) but we will inform you as soon as we make the final decision. We are going to have 4 teams which will be The White Team K-2nd, The Navy Team 3rd-4th, The Blue Team 5th-6th, and The Gold Team 7th-8th. All teams will be coached by Springfield High School Girls Lacrosse staff, alumni, and current players.
Practices dates are as follows:
June 22nd and 23rd
June 29th and 30th
July 6th and 7th
July 13th and 14th
July 20th and 21st
July 27th and 28th
Practice times are from 5-8pm. K-4th grade practice time is 5 to 6:30pm and 5th-8th grade practice time is 6:30 to 8pm at Halderman Field.
*If your child is already playing on a club team they can still play for SCLC. We understand that many of our girls play multiple sports and are on multiple teams. If your daughter can only make one practice a week we just ask that you let us know in advance.
*If your daughter is new to the game of lacrosse, please make sure she has goggles, a mouth guard, and a stick. If you are not sure what type of stick to get your daughter, we have a Longstreth Sporting Goods representative who is a former college lacrosse player who can also give you discounts and free shipping. Her email is . If you are just looking to go to Dicks or Models, any stick is fine for a beginner. I will say that the more expensive the stick, the more advanced it is.
Please feel free to email with any questions you may have!
