Northshore Girls Lacrosse

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the history of the club?

The Northshore Lacrosse Girls lacrosse club previously operated under Woodinville Girls Lacrosse.  Over the summer of 2018, a petition was filed with the  Washington Schoolgirls Lacrosse Association (WSLA)  to form a standalone club which was approved.  As a result, the club began operating independently as the "Northshore Lacrosse Girls" club starting with the spring, 2019 season.

We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. WA State Nonprofit UBI: 602670874

When is the season?

The main season is in the spring.  It typically begins in late February (after the NSD mid-winter break) and runs through May, with some levels participating in tournaments that extend into June.  The K-2 level is a shortened season that usually runs for two months (April-May).

Depending on the year, the program may offer a shorter, more relaxed fall program that has either practices one day a week, typically on Sundays.

What is the time commitment?

It depends on the grade, but it is typically as follows:

  • K-2 practices are held one day per week  with games on Saturdays.
  • Grades 3-6 have two weekday practices with games on Saturdays.
  • Grades 7-12 have three weekday practices with games on Saturdays.

How much experience is required?

None!  Lacrosse is a relatively new (and growing) sport on the west coast.  We see many new players every year at all ages.  We love new players!
