US Lacrosse Announces Age-Appropriate Youth Rules

 

“We can’t emphasize enough how different a 9-year-old is from an 11-year-old, how different an 11-year-old is from a 13-year-old, and so forth,” said Dr. Paige Perriello, a former NCAA Division I player, coach and umpire and current member of the US Lacrosse Sports Science and Safety Committee. “Knowing what youth can do at different levels with gross motor skills and mental capabilities and putting that expertise into practice is important.”

  

AGE AND ELIGIBILITY GUIDELINES

 

 


 

 

WELCOME TO WPSLAgirls ONLINE!

 

Since 1990, the Western PA Scholastic Lacrosse Association has served the needs of female athletes at the high school, middle school and youth levels in Western PA and West Virginia.

In 2004, WPIAL began sanctioning of high school lacrosse for girls and WPSLAgirls developed into a middle school and youth only organization.

 

WPSLA maintains its non-profit status and is lead by an elected voluneer Board of Directors

 

The purpose of WPSLA  is to promote the appreciation and understanding of lacrosse; encourage the growth of girl’s lacrosse; organize and administer safe and fair interscholastic competition; and develop sportsmanship and goodwill among member schools, clubs and association teams.

 

WPSLA is excited to be providing opportunities for young female athletes. Continued support of our players, coaches and officials is greatly appreciated.

 

Please HONOR THE GAME and respect those participating in all lacrosse and athletic events.
