How long is the PGLC Travel season?
Entire season runs from March thru May (See Master Calendar on side tab for more detailed information)
How are Travel teams formed?
PGLC participates in the Jersey Girls Lacrosse League (JGLL). The league does not keep records or statistics and has no standings or playoffs. Consequently, there is no Travel A, B or C teams based on ability. All Travel teams within an age-group are created to be as balanced as possible.
Does my daughter have to be at every Travel practice or game?
When choosing to play on the Travel Team, our practices & games are required and attendance will be taken at each practice/game. Of course things may come up during the season which may prevent a player from making every game or practice. We understand. However, the expectation is that players opting to join the Travel Team will attend all practices and games. Failure to attend practice will effect play time in games.
For some girls, PGLC is an additional team to their school team. We highly encourage the girls to play on their school team if they have one. We expect them to attend all their school practices and games. For players on the Travel Team, we highly encourage them to also attend their PGLC practice after their school practice, even if it means they will arrive late to PGLC practice. We request that you miss a school practice if it conflicts with a PGLC game. This should be arranged with the school coach well before the game date.
What if my daughter on the Travel Team has to miss a game?
We expect all Travel player to be able to make every game, with exception made for extenuating circumstances such as illness, school work, etc. You can expect that games will be scheduled from early-April until early June on either Friday nights to Saturday mornings, with the occasional Wednesday evening game. We request that all parents notify their daughter’s coach and team parent no later than 3 days prior to game day if your daughter will not be available to play in the upcoming game(s). This will ensure that we bring enough players to all games.
How do I find the dates/times of practices and games?
Check the Master Schedule pages on this website. All events, including practices, games and play days, are included for the three teams. Tip: the default setting for the master schedule shows games only. To view all events, select the "Show Non-Games" option.
We will post changes and cancelations on the website and e-mail those announcements as well.
What happens in poor weather?
If a practice or game is canceled due to weather, you should receive an email announcing the cancelation. All cancelled practices and games will also be posted on the website. Please check your email or the web site before heading to practice or a game if you have any concerns about a possible delay or cancelation due to weather.
Cancelled games can be expected early in the season, due to weather and concern for the field condition. Again, due to limited playing space, rescheduling cancelled games is very difficult and rarely done.
Practices can be held in the cold. Games can be played in the cold and even light rain. Dress your daughter appropriately for these situations. We cannot and will not practice or play a game during a thunderstorm or with a thunderstorm near by.
Due to limited field space, practice and games will not be played if the field conditions are too wet. This is a common problem that all towns have, so please do not be surprised if a practice or game is cancelled even on a sunny day. If we have rain for a couple days straight, the fields may be too wet for us to play on. We may try to reschedule on a different day to make up the practices if we can.
What equipment does my daughter need?
1. A Lacrosse Stick
In the past, the shaft of the girl’s lacrosse stick was made of wood. In today’s game, girls’ lacrosse sticks are made of plastic, titanium, or aluminum. The head of the stick is made of plastic and is strung with nylon or leather.
Make sure you buy a girls-specific stick. The pocket - or netting part - of a boy’s stick is much deeper. The regulation pocket of a girls lacrosse stick is legal if the ball remains even with or above the plastic walls of the head when held parallel to the ground.
If you buy a stick with a metal shaft, it is easy to cut to adjust for the correct size. We can help you determine the correct size at the practice.
Eye protection is required. The player must wear eye protection at all games and practices. The most popular types of eye protection are plastic goggles and metal cages. Although both are acceptable for play and practice, our experience suggests that girls find the metal cages much more comfortable to wear. The metal cages are more expensive, but worth it if your daughter is more willing to wear them.
3. Mouth guard
Required at every game and practice. Mouth guards cannot be clear or white.
Optional. At the older levels (5th grade and up) most girls will have cleats or turf shoes. Soccer cleats work fine. Metal spiked cleats are NOT allowed.
5. Lacrosse gloves
Optional, but handy during the cold early weeks. Lacrosse gloves are padded and are sometimes fingertipless.
6. Water bottle or sport drink is also necessary for every practice and game.
NOTE: Goalie gear and equipment will be provided by the PG Lax
