Grades 5 & 6


There are 2 programs available for 5th and 6th graders for 2018.  Scroll down to review each program:

Please know that being waitlisted can be very temporary.  AGWGL opens a certain number of spots at a time to ensure that all winter skills time slots and spring teams have coaches and will have a manageable number of players.  If you have lacrosse experience and are willing to be a head coach for a team, please let us know as this will enable us to open another team to allow more girls to register. We will keep communication open with waitlisted players and if additional registration spots become available, they will be offered in order of when players were waitlisted.  Please be patient as we attempt to open additional spots.
