The Lady Warriors
Girls Lacrosse Program

Lacrosse is one of the fastest growing sports in the country.  The Dunkirk Warriors Girls Lacrosse program is dedicated to
teaching the game of lacrosse to girls from kindergarten through eighth grade and promoting teamwork and sportsmanship to
all involved.  We promise that you will have lots of fun while also learning the techniques and strategies that make lacrosse
such an exhilarating sport!

We participate in the Anne Arundel County Recreation and Parks Lacrosse league which is comprised of teams from the “hot-bed”
of lacrosse in Maryland.  The league is highly competitive and well organized.

 

Girls Lacrosse is significantly different than Boys Lacrosse, with the primary difference being the lack of body checking.  In fact, contact is not allowed except for very specific cases so this explains why the girls do not suit up in pads and helmets, except for the goaltender.


All Dunkirk Warriors Lacrosse programs are open to players of any skill level, including beginners.

PERSONAL GEAR: 

 

All girls require the following personal equipment:
 

  • Women’s LAX regulation lacrosse stick , no mesh pocket.  Very expensive sticks are designed for powerful, experienced players.  If your daughter is K-8, it is not necessary to buy a top-of-the-line stick.  By the time they grow into the capability of that stick, there will be  better technology out there!  A stick in the range of $30-$40 is sufficient for the beginner to intermediate player.
