2024 Girls Spring Lacrosse League

The WCLA Girls Spring League is a competitive recreation program.  As a member of the Philadelphia Area Girls Lacrosse Association (“PAGLA”), WCLA adheres to its guidelines.  The Girls Spring League is led by WCLA Girls Director, Amanda Gionfriddo, and is enhanced by a staff of paid former high school and collegiate players/coaches, and experienced parent volunteers.  The coaching staff and West Chester Lacrosse Association directors will make team assignments for each division. Players cannot "play up"; they must play in the grade they are in school.

Our 2023 Spring League lacrosse programs were at their highest numbers yet!  Please register early to take advantage of the early registration discount AND guarantee your spot for Spring 2024!  Scroll down for more information and registration.  Please note; times and dates are tentative and subject to change.
