Who can play?
Girls from grades k-8
Boys from grades k-8
9th graders can play under certain circumstances (younger than a certain birth date, don't have a lacrosse program in your high school, etc.) Parents of players in grades below the above should contact either the boys or girls coordinators to discuss your child's situation.
You do not have to be a Wallingford resident to play. We do have a number of out-of-town players. If your town has a Youth Lacrosse Program we prefer you to play with that program, but if you have a reason why that is not working for you, we'd be happy to discuss whether or not Wallingford is an option for you.
