Great Valley Youth Lacrosse

1st & 2nd Grade Girls Lacrosse

Great Valley Youth Lacrosse Association (GVYLA) is available for girls in 1st through 8th grade who reside in the Great Valley School District in Pennsylvania. The girls program participates in the Philadelphia Area Girls Lacrosse Association (PAGLA) league, which takes place in the spring. 

No prior experience is necessary! Through skill development, teamwork, and sportsmanship, coaches and volunteers work to create a positive, supportive culture that is passionate about the sport of lacrosse. The program is focused on fostering an encouraging and fun learning environment open to beginners and more experienced lacrosse players. Our goal is to create well-rounded young female athletes and teammates, both on and off the field.

1st and 2nd grade players will practice in a clinic style of play. The goal of our clinics is to teach fundamental lacrosse skills in a fun and positive environment. Each week will consist of different drills and end with a scrimmage. We may schedule some round robins with local clubs later in the season as the girls develop their skills.

Wednesdays // 5:30pm - 7:00pm // May 1, 8, 15
