SANTA MONICA GIRLS LACROSSE LEAGUE (SMGLL)

 

Welcome to the inaugural season of our recreational girls lacrosse league in Santa Monica. We hope this is the beginning of a movement to get more girls out on the field playing this great sport. Below is some information outlining the league.

 

Overview:

The purpose of this recreational league is to provide a developmental environment for young girls in grades 2 through 5. All games are played “small-sided”. Small-sided means that teams play with fewer players and on smaller fields in order to improve the learning experience. We will be using US Lacrosse rules (see below).

 

Divisions:

  • 2/3 Sticklets
  • 4/5 PeeWees

Four Teams In Each Division:

  • West LA
  • Culver City Tsunami
  • Dragons White
  • Dragons Green

Field Layout:

All games are at Santa Monica HS. Click HERE to get more info on parking and access at Santa Monica HS. We are splitting the field in two as per the diagram below.

 

 

Field Rules:

Santa Monica HS has some common sense rules that apply to every other turf field:

  • No pets
  • No bike riding
  • No food
  • No drinks such as coffee, soda, etc. water only please
  • Please pick up all trash and treat the field with respect. We rely on the city to provide us with field space so we like to make a good impression and leave the field cleaner than when we got there. And you’d be surprised how quickly setting a good example and picking up some trash rubs off on the kids.
  • Spectators, please stay in the spectator areas.
