and teamwork while giving back to the communities where our athletes live and play.
Benefits to an All-Female Lacrosse Club

culture that fosters development across the skill spectrum to ensure players enjoy success both on and
beyond the field
ii) Growth - The FLA will promote the sport of lacrosse to females within the CDLA boundaries and
provide a safe and positive environment for new and existing players.
iii) Competition - Combining the female membership allows for tiering of play, enhancing the
experience for new and experienced players alike.
iv) Tournaments - The Female Lacrosse Association will be organizing and promoting tournaments
including the ongoing tradition of the Girls Rock Tournament.
The FLA will offer a Competitive option for PeeWee through Midget aged players. Teams in this division
will be formed based on skill rather than geographic location. Players registering for this option will be
assessed through a series of skills/evaluation sessions starting in February.
In addition, the FLA will offer a House option for Novice through Midget players, with teams organized
both on relative skill ranking and the athlete's geographic location.
Additional information on division structure and evaluations will be available on the FLA website closer
to the new year. Registration within the new association will open in January 2019!
