Northampton Girls Youth Lacrosse


The Northampton Girls Youth Lacrosse League was founded in the spring of 2001 and is a member of U.S. Lacrosse Association. NGYL competes in the Western Massachusetts Girls Lacrosse League, and fields teams at three divisional age levels.  Any girl who resides in the city of Northampton, or who attends a Northampton school or who resides in a neighboring town that is not a member of the WMGLL league may be eligible to play.

It is the policy of the Northampton Girls Youth Lacrosse Teams that all players who attend practice are given an opportunity to play in games.  For more information please view the NGYL Bylaws on this website.

Our Mission:

Increase participation in the game of lacrosse by providing a safe and enjoyable learning environment for young women to play. Strengthen local athletic programs through early player identification and encouragement. Contribute to the growth and development of healthy, well-rounded women.

HELPFUL INFORMATION FOR THE 2018 NGYL SEASON

-NGYL 2018 COACHES MAYBE VIEWED BY CLICKING ON THE ICON "About Us" AT THE TOP OF THIS PAGE AND THEN CLICKING ON " Coaches"

-NGYL season usually runs end of March to early June (weather permitting)
-All players must show up to all team activities with a legal lacrosse stick, face mask and mouth guard.(No participation is allowed without a mouth guard!)  Rubber cleats are optional.
-ALL players and coaches must be current US Lacrosse members for liability coverage.  All coaches will be CORI checked before the start of the season.

-We play in the Western Masaachusetts Girls Lacrosse League (formerly called the Conneticut River Valley- CRV- league)

-Practices (weekdays normally 5pm and later,weekends variable) are usually held at JFK Middle School fields or Florence Field #5 once the Northampton Recreation Department and the Northampton DPW “release” the fields.  Often this may not occur until mid-late April due to wet field conditions.  Team’s coaches determine practice schedules & alternate practice sites.  Practices the first three weeks or so tend to be after school 2-3 days/week/and/or a weekend.  Practices during the season tend to occur once or twice/ week depending on how many games are scheduled that week. Players are expected to practice on their own as well!

-Home games are played at Florence Field #5, 145 Meadow St. or at JFK Middle School fields.
-Away games occur throughout Western Ma.
-It is the parents’ responsibility to arrange transportation to and from all practices and games.
-Games begin around the last week of April and continue for about 6 weeks through the first week of June.  Ideally teams will have an equal number of home and away games and average about two games per week.  This is solely arranged by our coaches at the March WMGLL  coaches’ game scheduling meeting.
-Games begin at 6:15 pm and usually last 45 minutes- one hour.  Only coaches may be on the sidelines with our teams during a game.
-During the season, a team may be involved in a tournament or two.

U.S. LACROSSE has a great website-    www.uslacrosse.org   -with lots of useful information as well as a great US Lacrosse Girls Youth Rules and Regulations brochure.
