Welcome to St. James Girls Rec Lacrosse!
Our goals are simple: to introduce the great game of lacrosse and to grow strong, happy girls. We believe the purpose of rec lacrosse is, indeed, recreation—a place for girls to engage in a fun, healthy activity with friends. We meet girls where they are, from those who just want to get some exercise and try something new, to girls who develop a passion for the game and hope to play at a high level.
To achieve these goals, we use dedicated parent volunteer coaches, trained through U.S. Lacrosse certification programs, to teach fundamental lacrosse skills. As they learn skills, girls gain confidence and understand that hard work pays off. As they compete, they learn how to respect their teammates, opponents, and officials; and to give 100% effort as part of something larger than themselves. Our girls have fun and play hard.
Many of our players are from St. James Academy, but many are not, and the friendships formed across local schools are special. We invite and welcome your family to our program, and we look forward to meeting your daughter on the field. Please reach out if you have any questions or we can assist in any way.

Girls’ Beginner Clinic—birthdate must be between 9/1/10 – 8/31/12
This clinic is a fun first introduction to lacrosse for girls in Kindergarten through 1st grade. The girls will learn the basics of cradling, scooping ground balls, catching, throwing and shooting, primarily through fun drills and relays. This clinic will likely be held for one hour on Sunday afternoons.
Tyker–birthdate must be between 9/1/08 – 8/31/10
1-2 practices per week; 1-2 games per week. Tyker is for Second and Third graders (who meet the birthdate qualification) who are ready for a more competitive lacrosse environment. Practices will introduce more advanced concepts and game strategy. This team will participate in MYLA. All Tyker players must have a St. James uniform. Please order directly through the link below.
For anyone that needs a new uniform, this year we are using a new uniform company that offers better sizing and offers the uniform as separate, less expensive pieces. We have removed the name from the uniforms so that they may be passed down or sold at the used uniform sale. Please click on each piece to see the applicable size chart. If your daughter already has a number from a prior uniform, please select that number. If this is your daughter’s first uniform, please contact Jay James at firstname.lastname@example.org to be assigned a number to include on the order form. No uniforms necessary for Beginner Clinic.Order Uniforms
