5th & 6th Grade
Our 5/6 program continues to build on fundamental skills while introducing players to full-field games. Travel teams are balanced across skill levels and compete in the Founders Girls Lacrosse League, the premier league for girls in New England. At 5/6, we begin to offer an additional higher level of competition through our Select program, which requires a tryout process and a commitment to the Travel program as well.
