West LA Lacrosse

2018 WINTER SEASON

 
 

OVERVIEW

WLAL runs a Winter League that draws participation from nearly a dozen regions around Los Angeles,including Santa Monica, Culver City, El Segundo, South Bay, Torrance, Palos Verdes, Westchester, and more.

WLAL fields teams for its Winter season for both boys and girls, from kindergarten through 8th grade.

While our Winter teams are always competitive, we welcome beginners at every age level. 

During our 2018 Winter Season, games will be held every Saturday, from January 6th through the end of February.

Our season will culminate with playoffs and championship games during the final weekend of February (Saturday 2/24 & Sunday 2/25).

Games will take place at various fields around the West-LA area including Culver City High School, Santa Monica High School, Mar Vista Recreation Center, and possibly other venues as well.

All WLAL practices take place at Cheviot Hills Recreation Center (day/times still TBD).

Pending field-space availability, we intend to hold a one all-ages, full-group practice session for our WLAL players in mid-December, prior to the holidays, as a way to kick things off. More info on this as we get a little closer.

 

WEEKLY WINTER SKILLS CLINIC

There will be an optional weekly skills clinic run by Catch! Lacrosse during the Winter Season, which we highly recommend for all players.

These will take place 6 consecutive Mondays starting January 15th from 530-7pm at Cheviot Hills Rec Center.

2018 SPRING SEASON

 
 

WLAL fields teams that play in another local league called LAYLL during the Spring season. 

WLAL fields teams for its Spring season for both boys and girls, from kindergarten through 8th grade.

While our Spring teams are always competitive, we welcome beginners at every age level.  

The Spring season generally starts up during the first week of March and culminates at the end of May.

Most of our players roll directly from the Winter season right into the Spring season, as one ends as the other begins.

All WLAL practices for Spring League take place at Cheviot Hills Recreation Center.

Games are at various fields around the Westside region of Los Angeles.

More information coming soon about our 2018 SPRING SEASON.

WINTER & SPRING

GOALIE CLINICS

 
 

Goalie is one of lacrosse’s most important positions. But naturally, it can be intimidating for young players to consider stepping into the cage for the first time.

During our Winter and Spring Seasons, we run a series of special Goalie Clinics outside of normal team practice at Cheviot Hills Rec Center. These are invaluable opportunities not just for experienced goalies, but also for total beginners who want to get a sense of that position in a safe, controlled environment.    

Please let us know if you are interested to hear more about the upcoming goalie clinics.

2018 SUMMER

 
 

WLAL is not currently running clinics or regular season games in Summer. Instead, we research other local

options for summer training and instruction and direct our families to those that we endorse.

We will post links to these partners here on our site.

SUMMER & FALL

TOURNAMENTS

 
 

WLAL regularly organizes teams to participate in Summer and Fall tournaments. These tournaments take place at various locations in Southern California and offer the chance to play more teams from all over the state at a higher level of competition.

Our Summer and Fall Tournament plans are usually made towards the middle/end of the Spring season and vary across age-divisions based on the interest level and availability of the players and families.

FALL CLINICS

 
 

WLAL offers free 1-day clinics held 2-3 times during October-November at Cheviot Hills Recreation Center. No stick, equipment, or experience necessary. These sessions are meant to introduce lacrosse basics to new players and families, and to help shake the rust off of our seasoned veterans returning for our Winter season.  

Our two 2017 Fall Clinics were held on October 29th and November 5th. There will be no more Fall Clinics in 2017.
