Nation Ford Girls Lacrosse

2019 Varsity Girls Lacrosse

2019 Women's Lacrosse


You must have a valid physical to try out by 28 Jan. You can bring it in paper to the coaches, or enter it in Planet HS or if you used the Heart of Champions resource it will be recorded already. 

If you are selected for one of the 2019 teams(JV or Varsity) the cost per player is $200. This does not include the mandated $100 district athletic fee. The total cost per player is $300. 

On Feb 5th at 6PM, Principal Johns and AD Shackleford are having a mandatory spring sports meeting in the auditorium. Our meeting will happen at 7PM after that concludes. Players and at least one parent need to attend these. 

Practices are held Monday through Friday 4:30 to 6:30-7ish. Varsity will practice on Saturday AM as well for the beginning of the season. Practices will change once the games begin. 

The schedule for the season is posted on this web page. Please ensure you can make the commitment before trying out. If you have other sports/jobs /clubs that will prevent you from committing fully, then this is not the activity for you. Lacrosse is a team sport, so players must commit their time and sacrifice something for each other. 

Bring water,  mouthguard , running shoes and cleats if you have them to each practice. If you are a returner, you know what gear to bring, but if you have extra bring it along.

If you are new, we have some  (limited) sticks and goggles  you can borrow, until you make the team. Then you will have two weeks to purchase your own.  

If you are purchasing a stick for the first time, please do not go to Dicks and get their starter pack. Contact a coach first, you can get much better products online for similar money.
