All youth players (K-8) are welcome to try Plano Girls Lax at any time! Before the season begins we hold free clinics where new players can come try lacrosse with no commitment. If you are looking to play and the season has already started, your child may try a practice before making a commitment. Please email our Youth director at youthlax@planogirlslax.com if you are interested in attending a practice.

Our high school Varsity team is required to submit its roster to the league by the end of January, so new players are welcome up to that time. If you are interested in joining our high school team, please contact our program director at programdirector@planogirlslax.com for more information.
