GRIZZLY LACROSSE INFORMATION

 
TEAM LEVELS

USA field lacrosse teams are organized by the player's grade level, not their age

 

2U: K-2ND Graders

4U: 2nd-4th Graders

6U: 5th-6th Graders

8U: 7th-8th Graders

SEASON

The season "officially" starts in January and runs through April.

"Officially" means the start of games and multiple-day practices.

We will begin pre-season practices in the fall before the new year. This period is an excellent time for first-time players to try the sport and get returning players early reps before the season. 

GAMES

Lacrosse games are played on Saturdays. In addition, we will play other lacrosse clubs from Houston and surrounding areas and typically play two games per team, depending on the makeup of the competing organizations.

TOURNAMENTS

We plan to participate in the Aggieland Classic lacrosse tournament in January. Tournament participation is encouraged but not required. Additional fees and registration will be required to participate in covering the cost of the tournament registration fee. 

There is also an end-of-season tournament that the area teams participate in at no additional cost. 

 

PRACTICES

Open pre-season practices "try-lax" will begin in November.

Registration and Membership are NOT REQUIRED

The team practices will officially start the first week of January.

Complete Grizzly Lacrosse Club Registration and a US Lacrosse Membership ARE REQUIRED to participate.

Practices will be twice a week (M/W or T/TH) from 6-8 pm at New Territory or at a location TBD

*Subject to change due to weather or other events

FINANCIAL AID - SCHOLARSHIP FUND

The Grizzly Lacrosse Club wants youth players from every background to be able to enjoy the game of lacrosse. Please contact the coach or reach out directly to richmondgrizzly@gmail.com if your child wants to be considered for a financial aid scholarship.
