North Gwinnett Lacrosse Association
Lacrosse is our country’s oldest sport, developed and played by Native Americans for centuries and modified by European immigrants. Lacrosse has since developed into different forms – box and field lacrosse. At NGLA, our teams play field lacrosse. The game is played outdoors, usually, on a football-sized field, with between six and 11 players plus a goalie. Both the girls and boys games are fast-paced, requiring skill, stamina, and athleticism.

All players MUST have a lacrosse stick and wear the following pieces of protective equipment during practices and games. NO EXCEPTIONS. This equipment must be professionally manufactured and not altered. Each player must always have a properly molded mouthpiece, that is NOT white or clear (must be a color).
