Springfield AA

Girls Travel Lacrosse

 

 


About the program
Springfield AA Girls Travel Lacrosse strives to develop lacrosse skills, game fundamentals and a love for the game in a positive environment.  The program enlists the support of parents and parent volunteer coaches to develop good sportsmanship values in our players.  We expect there to be over 125+ girls on the field again this year!

  • All teams participate in the Philadelphia Area Girls Lacrosse Association (PAGLA), a league committed to promoting the game to township programs for girls 3rd through 8th grade. While there are leveled teams (A & B) there are no playoffs or championships. The goal is to create balanced teams that are competitive at each level and allow the players to continue to grow in the sport, gaining and improving skills.

    2019 Information: 

    All players MUST be registered for travel lacrosse and paid at the time of evaluations to be placed on a team! The fee this year will be $110. This includes indoor practice at AMPRO, referee fees, tournament fees (historically collected separately), equipment and player t-shirt. Registration will close on January 19th at midnight. No exceptions to this policy can be made after evaluations are over. *Refunds will only be issued if written request is sent to the Direct of girls lacrosse within a week of teams being posted on the SAA website and will be less a $20 evaluation fee. 

    Uniforms- A uniform package from C&M sports will be required for every travel player. The uniform will be worn for at least 2 years and will be the same for all teams. Pieces can be re-order as needed in future years. Player name and number of choice will be available on these new uniforms. There will be a size grid available for parents during tryouts. 
    The online web store with C&M is now open for you to order your daughters' uniform. See the link below.
    The uniform is a custom jersey and navy blue skort (shorts for goalies). Please put your last name on the back of the jersey
    and your daughter may choose her number (duplicates are okay).

  • *STORE CLOSES at 11:50 PM on February 7th

    Please note that the web store closes on February 7th in order to have uniforms in time for the start of the season- no orders can be received after this date! Sample sizes will be at the remaining
    evaluations so be sure to make a note of which size skort and jersey you will be ordering as there are no returns or exchanges.
    **My recommendation is to size up if you can, so that your daughter can wear the uniform next year too! 

    There is also spirit wear on available in the online store now as well if you would like to have new gear for the start of the season! 

    Uniforms and all spirit wear can be picked up directly from C&M when it arrives (you will receive a phone call)  If you have any questions please feel free to contact me or C&M directly at any time. 


Tournaments- We are looking to have each team participate in two tournaments. More information will be available as the season progresses. Additional tournaments or play-days may be added at the coaches discretion and will vary by team (additional fees may apply). 

Practices-  Every team should expect to practice two times per week. Practice schedules will be known in late Spring and are made in consideration of all SAA teams and High School teams use of fields. Girls lacrosse typically uses Halderman field, Veterans Memorial and Sabold and are subject to field conditions as determined by the township. *7/8 teams will usually practice once per week as many girls also play for their middle school teams 5 days a week. Practices will start around the end of March depending on field availability. 

Games-  Every team will have at least one game on either a Saturday or Sunday. *Sometimes double header weekends are scheduled to make up games cancelled due to weather.
 3/4 grade teams play 3- twenty (20)minute games in a round-robin format, 7v7 on a short field. Goalies are encouraged but not required. If no goalie plays a shot blocker will be used. 
 5/6 and 7/8 grade teams play full field 12v12. Goalies are required. Games are 2- twenty-five (25) minutes halves with a 5 minute half time. 

Opening weekend for all grades is targeted for the first weekend in April. Time and locations will be available in early Spring on PAGLA's website. We are in the Centeral West division www.pagla.org 
The PAGLA tournament ends the season on June 1st and 2nd and is part of our season and one of the two tournaments we enter.   

Coaches-  Teams are coached by volunteer parents. Coaches are always needed! Without volunteers this program cannot be as successful as it has been. If you are interested in coaching a team please let me know, no experience required- we will teach you! We can only field teams if we have coaches to ensure appropriate roster sizes. 

Teams


3/4 grade teams are evenly divided so that rosters are as balanced as possible. The goal is to have fun and learn new things! *Kids in younger grades may not play up. They are eligible to play in our K-2 clinic! 

5/6 and 7/8 grade teams- we are required by PAGLA to have an A level team at each of these grade levels. All players will be considered for A teams during evaluations, unless otherwise requested. It is strongly encouraged to attend all evaluations. A teams are based on skill level, aggressiveness and field/game sense. Any player not placed on an A team will be placed on evenly divided B teams. While this can be stressful for players please know that it is not indicative of future performance or ability!! We want all girls to play as much as possible, have fun and improve all season long!  **Outside coaches will be present at 5/6 and 7/8 evaluations for unbiased feedback which will be incorporated with coaches feedback from last season as rosters are developed.  *Teams are dependent on available coaches- please consider volunteering your time.  

Team information will be posted on the website as well as emailed to players in late January or early February. 

Evaluations- All evaluations will be held at AMPRO field house (30 Bunting Lane Clifton Heights, PA 19018)
