Policies

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: U9, U10, U11, U12, U13, and U15.  The following skill levels will divisions will apply at each age groups U12, U13, U15:  Silver for beginning players and Gold for advanced players. 

U11 will only play smaller field 7v7 games.  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 2018 US Lacrosse Rules for Girls Youth Lacrosse 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 division.  Therefore, Patriot Lacrosse will register teams in the divisions that best suits the teams. 

 US Lacrosse Age & Eligibility Guidelines / The following age groupings are determined as of the August 31st preceding competition:

NOTE: Age group references used in this section are in common usage but should not be understood literally. The U15 (read: "Under 15") grouping means that, if a player is 14 years old on the cutoff date, he/she may participate in U15 competition as a 15-year old. 

U15: 
All players must be 14 years old or younger on the August 31st preceding competition. It is recommended that when multiple teams exist within a program, the program should consider physical size, skill, and maturity when organizing teams. 

 

U13: 
All players must be 12 years old or younger on the August 31st preceding competition. It is recommended that when multiple teams exist within a program, the program should consider physical size, skill, and maturity when organizing teams.
 
U11:
All players must be 10 years old or younger on the August 31st preceding competition. It is recommended that when multiple teams exist within a program, the program should consider physical size, skill, and maturity when organizing teams.
 
U9:
All players must be 8 years old or younger on the August 31st preceding competition. It is recommended that when multiple teams exist within a program, teams should consider physical size, skill, and maturity.

Competitive 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. 

EVEN aged Teams:

Patriot Lacrosse will evaluate each division to see if U10 and U12 teams can be formed. 

 

Wait Listing:

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.
