Lacrosse is one of the fastest growing team sports in the United States. Youth participation in the sport has grown over 500% since 1999. The Eugene area has several high school girls' lacrosse teams. The UO also has varsity and club women's lacrosse.
The sport of lacrosse is a combination of basketball, soccer and hockey. Anyone can play lacrosse--the big or the small. The game requires and rewards coordination and agility. Quickness and speed are two highly prized qualities in lacrosse. Girls lacrosse equipment required includes a stick, eyeguards, and a mouthpiece. There is no checking at any youth level.
Girls' Youth Lacrosse teams are determined by grade level: 3/4, 5/6, and 7/8. The ten week season includes practices 2 times per week with a focus on skills, scrimmages, and sportsmanship. Round robin and tournament style games are planned for Eugene, Portland and Bend. Loaner equipment (sticks and eyeguards) is available.
