3RD - 4TH GRADE
3RD - 4TH GRADE
NELC's goal for our 3rd and 4th grade players is to grow and develop lacrosse skills and love of the game in a fun, exciting and age appropriate way. We will focus on basic skill development, teamwork and sportsmanship.
The NELC has a goal to provide every child the opportunity to play lacrosse. We rely on volunteer coaches to make that happen. If you are willing to help, please click below. We have a training program for new coaches, so no lacrosse experience is necessary.
2022 REGISTRATION FEES
Registration for 3rd - 8th grade players is $183.
Registration includes practice and competition event fees.
New players will also need to order a jersey, shorts/skort, and shooter shirt. Link to Team Store under Uniform header below.
Returning players may purchase uniform items as required.
NELC offers a fall and spring season. Our fall season runs from September through November and our spring season runs from January through May. See our schedule page for more information.
3rd-4th grade players attend one weekly 75-minute practice in the fall and two weekly 75-minute practices in the spring. Practice times and location will be sent out to your player by each team's volunteer coach.
3rd-4th grade game play will consist of 6 total players per team (5 field players and a goalie). Games will consist of two 22-minute running time halves, with a 5-minute halftime period.
The fall season games are played during a single two-day fall tournament usually held in Fort Walton Beach in early November. The tournament includes 2-3 games of pool play on Saturday and 1-3 games of single elimination play on Sunday.
The spring season games are played during several one-day jamborees generally held on Saturdays between Panama City and Mobile. The jamborees include 2 games for each team.
Our team uniform will stay the same every season. If you have played with us anytime since spring 2020, you will be able to re-use your existing uniform and will not need to purchase a uniform during registration. If you are a new player or returning player that played prior to the 2020 spring season, you will purchase your new uniform during registration.
Returning players will have the option to purchase individual uniform items to replace any items if needed.
The following equipment is required for all girls lacrosse players and must be brought to practice:
Lacrosse stick, goggles, mouth guard and cleats. Please see the player information section of our FAQS page for more information.
