Great Valley Youth Lacrosse

7th & 8th 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, on and off the field.
