Haven Youth Lacrosse – Girls

Registration for Spring 2024 opens Monday January 15 and closes Friday, February 16, 2024.

Please do not delay in registering. We will not accept late registrations once rosters have been submitted to the league.

Lacrosse is the game everyone wants to play!

Haven Youth Lacrosse fields travel teams at grades 3/4, 5/6, and 7/8 for both boys and girls.  Girls play in the Philadelphia Area Girls Lacrosse Association (PAGLA).  

Practice will begin 1 day per week during the last week of February at Hockey Dek in Springfield. Twice weekly practices start on Wallingford-Swarthmore School District fields in April for grades 3/4 and 5/6. Grades 7/8 will practice one time per week to accommodate middle school sports. Practices are 60-90 minutes with games once or twice a week. Beginners in all divisions are most welcome!

PAGLA regular season games begin the weekend of April 6 and run through May 18.  Some divisions will play a week night game or two throughout the season.

COACHES: Teams are coached by parents, supported by HYL, and we are always in need of more volunteers – even if you never played the game. If you are interested in coaching, please reach out to us or check the box at registration.  Even if you know nothing about lacrosse, there is a way you can help!

HYL is committed to bringing lacrosse to everyone who wants to play.  Lacrosse equipment can be expensive.  We have used equipment and jerseys and distribute for use if needed by any player – just let us know.  We also have some new sticks for families who need them, and we offer scholarships to reduce the price of registration as well.  We want you to be able to play!

USA LACROSSE MEMBERSHIP: As a condition of our participation in league play, all HYL players and coaches must have a valid USA Lacrosse membership that expires after June 10, 2024.  This includes any parents who help out on the field at practice or a game.  Coaches are reimbursed for the cost of their membership.  USA Lacrosse has lots of resources for families who are new to the game.
