PINK LEVEL—The emphasis of this program is to develop the girl within the sport of lacrosse. The goals of the program are to understand the rules of lacrosse, active teamwork, sportsmanship, and foster personal development in a respectful environment led by positive coaching. Practices are one day per week Wednesday from 6 - 7:30 at Spring Dale Park on 53rd and Wolf Rd and games will be played on Sunday afternoons between 12 pm & 5 pm at various locations. These levels are for players with any amount of experience. (fee includes team jersey)

PURPLE LEVEL—Purple teams compete at a higher skill level.  Experienced players interested in the Purple level must attend a Skills Assessment session in January/February and will receive notification of their placement before registering with their Park District. Girls who played Purple during the spring 2016 season DO NOT need to attend an assessment and do not need to wait to register with their park district. All practices are 1.5 hours, twice per week for Purple on M & W at Spring Dale Park. Games are held on Sunday afternoons between 12:00 pm & 5pm, with Purple requiring further travel as there are fewer teams at this level. Dates and registration for the Skills Assessment can be found on (fee includes team jersey)
