Our summer lacrosse league is for advanced-level Purple players looking for practices and games but at a lighter schedule than spring season. Summer Purple League practices on Mondays starting June 4th and has games on Wednesdays starting June 6th. The summer program ends with a game on Wednesday June 27th.
All IGLA programs focus on teamwork, sportsmanship, and personal development in a respectful environment led by positive coaching. Players receive equal playing time and play in all positions. Coaches are HS players and parent volunteers.
