Fall Girls 2017
Be part of a youth lacrosse league exclusively for girls from Chicago, north, northwest, west, and south suburbs. The emphasis is to develop the girl within the sport of lacrosse. The goals of the program are to understand the rules of lacrosse and to promote active teamwork and sportsmanship, foster personal development in a respectful environment – all led by positive coaching. IGLA is adopting the US Lacrosse “PLAYERS FIRST” ATHLETE DEVELOPMENT MODEL which means smaller fields and a smaller number of players. Kids are more engaged, get more touches on the ball, and further develop their skills.
