7th & 8th Grade
Our 7/8 program is designed to offer options that fit all levels of play. There are stratified Travel Teams as well as no try-out, balanced Travel Teams, both playing in the Founders Girls Lacrosse League, the premier league for girls in New England. At 7/8, we continue to offer our Select program, which requires a spring tryout process and a commitment to the Travel program as well.
