About Girls Field Lacrosse                                                                                                                                                      

Girls field lacrosse is a little different from boys field lacrosse. It is a non-contact sport focusing on the finesse of running, passing, catching, and play-making.

Girls Field Lacrosse is an outdoor non-contact sport primarily played in the spring and summer throughout Ontario .  The game is played outdoors on a soccer sized field and in its true form it is 12 v 12 players on the field.  Younger ages play a modified smaller sided version of the game

Our girls field lacrosse program is a development program, focusing on building fundamental skills, and a love of the game.

The program will run Tuesday & Friday evenings, from Early May until the end of July.
Location: Silverwoods Fields

Each evening will consist of instruction in foundation skills, games/activities to reinforce those skills, and a short scrimmage.  We will also have some fun exhibtion games with some Development Teams from other Cetnres.
 

Fees: $200 (covers field bookings and a Player Shirt)

The primary goal of our girls field lacrosse program is to develop a love for lacrosse among girls in our community.



Equipment                                                                                                                                                                           
Players wear field cleats (such as Soccer or Field Lacrosse), mouth guard, field lacrosse goggles, and use a girls field lacrosse stick.

Goalies wear a helmet with cage, throat protector, mouth guard, chest pad, arm guards, goal-keeper gloves, padded shorts, leg pads, and cleats. The Club provides the Goalie Equipment.


Sticks

Women's Field Lacrosse operate under rules designed to maximize player safety.
Girl's/Women's Field Lacrosse sticks have a different head and mesh/netting then Men's/Boy's Lacrosse.

Strict rules govern the shape and design of the sticks and pockets used.

The OWFL recognize the rules of the CLA and FIL. Sticks approved for use in OWFL play are listed on the document from the F.I.L. website.  

If the stick is not on the list it is not permitted for use in OWFL play.
Please note different regulations govern play in the US, and as such a stick approved for play in the US may not be permitted in Ontario.


Mouthguard

Mouthguards are required under the rules of lacrosse to be worn at all times during games and practices.
The mouthguards must be coloured.  Clear or white mouthguards will not be permitted.
