The WCLA Boys Spring League is a competitive program at the 3rd/4th, 5th/6th, and 7th/8th levels.  Teams are formed at the 1st/2nd grade level with an emphasis on developing core lacrosse fundamentals and having fun.  (Spring Co-ED Futures, an engaging introductory lacrosse program, serves boys ages 3-5. No pads/helmets.)

 

Players in age divisions 1st/2nd through 7th/8th are required to have the following equipment for all practices and games:

  • Shoulder pads with chest protector- As of January 1st, 2022, shoulder pads must be SEI (Safety Equipment Institute) certified and meet the NOCSAE (National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment) standard. CCLA IS REQUIRING EXTERNAL CARDIAC GUARD (EKG) SHOULDER PADS WITH CHEST PROTECTOR FOR THE 2022 SEASON.

  • lacrosse stick

  • helmet with attached mouthguard

  • arm/elbow pads

  • gloves  

  • cleats
     

As a member of the Chester County Lacrosse Association ("CCLA"), WCLA adheres to its guidelines.   ​Please check the grade bracket to confirm the division your son will be assigned before registering.  You must reside within the West Chester Area School District to play 3rd/4th and up.  Please note, as per WCLA policy, players are not permitted to “play up” (or out of the grade group), conversely, no one may "play down" in a division for which they are not grade-eligible.

We need volunteer coaches- click here to register.
