Mount Si Lacrosse Club will field girls teams in the 2nd-4th grade, 5th-6th and 7th-8th grade age groups.
The 2nd-4th grade teams play a modified 7 on 7 game to maximize playing time. It is largely instructional and this modified version helps these young players to learn to play the game effectively. Commitment is 1-2 practices per week and weekend games.
The 5th-6th and 7th-8th teams play with 12 players on each side and on a full field. We believe in full participation so everyone gets to play. This is not a select team. Players should be ready to commit to several practices during the week and weekend games.
What are the rules in girls lacrosse?
Will there be a high school girls team?
We are unable to offer girls high school team at this time as we just don’t have enough players. Teams will depend on interest level. Teams are required to have a minimum of 16 players to be able to field a team. 18-22 players is the ideal number for a girls lacrosse team at these levels. As we build our youth girls program a high school program will become more likely.
Is the girls game just like the boys game?
No, girls lacrosse is its own unique game. It has the speed of the boys game but does not have the contact of the boys game. The game is played with the same ball but the stick and gear that is required is different. Girls do not have helmets (except the goalie), protective gloves or shoulder pads. Girls have their own specialized gloves and wear goggles to protect their eyes. The girls have 12 players on a side rather than the 10 that the boys have.

Here is some information about how the divisions work with the youth girls.
Washington Schoolgirls Lacrosse Association Youth League is currently comprised of the following Divisions:
This division is designed to be the most elite level of play currently being offered in the league. Teams consist of 7th and 8th grade players.
This Division is designed for the emerging programs of 7th and 8th graders. 6th graders are allowed to play with this level if there is no program for them to appropriately play at the U13 level. 5th graders may practice with their U15B teams but are not allowed to play in games.
This Division is designed for teams comprised of 5th and 6th graders.
This Division is designed for a modified game of 7 v 7 for 3rd and 4th graders
Currently, there is no “select” or “travel” Division of play.
Players who live in the Snoqualmie School District boundary must play for the Mount Si Lacrosse girls youth teams.
