DLC Youth Girls
Spring is the main season for girls lacrosse. DLC plays as part of the Colorado Girls Lacrosse Association (CGLA, www.cglax.com). Teams play according to age. A player’s age on August 31, 2018 determines the age group, so a 7 year old girl on August 31. 2018 would play on a U8 team. Click on the ‘Age Table’ tab for more details.

DLC has the best coaches in the state and most are volunteer parents. DLC Girls encourages our coaches to attend training when possible and DLC will pay for coaches to attend. DLC Girls will also reimburse coaches for a US Lacrosse coach membership which includes access to online coaching resources. CGLA also mandates that coaches must attend a spring 2016 coaches meeting (March 5).
When possible, DLC will match up a young woman lax player with each team to help with the coaching. If you would like to volunteer as a coach, please contact Amy Lane.
