Patriot Lacrosse Girls Spring 2020 Registration
Welcome to Patriot Lacrosse Youth Club. Patriots and SoCo have merged into one program continuing under the Patriot name.
Patriot Lacrosse Girls promotes the development of the “fastest game on two feet” by honoring the game and respecting the ROOTS: Rules, Officials, Opponents, Teammates and Self.
Registration for girls will be open November 25th and close March 30th, 2020.
Practices will begin the last week of February, weather depending. Practice dates and times will be determined by each team's coach. Teams will participate in a playdate on Sunday, March 15th, 2020 with other clubs in Colorado Springs, Monument & Pueblo.
Games will begin the weekend of April 4th and run through May. Games will be played on Saturdays at outdoor fields across Colorado which may include travel to Denver or Pueblo. Our home games will be played on the turf field at Rampart High School. The regular season will end with the Festival Tournament. Each team will have the option to play in Rocky Mountain Jamboree tournament, June 6 – 7th, 2020.
Patriot Lacrosse is opening registration to form teams for the Colorado Girls Lacrosse Association (CGLA) spring season. CGLA will form divisions of play based on the following age groupings: U8, U10, U11, U12, U13, U14 and U15. The following divisions will apply at age groups U12, U13, U14, and U15: Silver for beginning players and Gold for advanced players.
U11 and younger will play 7v7 on a smaller field. CGLA is adopting this based upon US Lacrosse recommendations to develop players on age appropriate field size.
Rules of Play:
CGLA’s rules for play are primarily based on the 2019 US Lacrosse Rules for Girls Youth Lacrosse. A quick reference chart can be found here:

Formation of Teams:
The Patriot Lacrosse Club mission is to teach youth athletes the life lessons of skills development, teamwork, safe play, and sportsmanship in both a recreational/developmental environment and a competitive environment that prepares these young athletes for high school level competition. With that said, Patriot Lacrosse strives to form a competitive (Gold) team and a beginner (Silver) team in each division. Due to the size of the Patriot Lacrosse Club membership, it is impossible to form 2 teams (competitive and beginner) in each of the CGLA age divisions. Therefore, Patriot Lacrosse will register teams in the divisions that best suits the teams.
The need for tryouts for the competitive teams will be determined in the middle of February. The level of play for these teams will be determined after tryouts are completed and based on the evaluation results.
Following CGLA/US Lacrosse recommendations, Patriot Lacrosse team sizes will be capped at 22. Competitive teams will be capped at 18. When the registration numbers in a division hit 43 players, all additional players will be “wait-listed” until a minimum of 13 players are registered. Wait-listed players not added to a team will be given a refund on their registration fee. If possible, Patriot Lacrosse will coordinate with another Colorado Springs Girls Lacrosse Club to combine wait-listed players into a combined club team.
Team/level expectations of play can be found on the Patriot Lacrosse website under the Club Policies tab on the left side of the home page, click here to view it now.
