Adult Lacrosse

What’s the fastest sport played on 2 feet.  That’s right it’s Lacrosse.  Not only that it’s the fastest growing sport in the United States and its popularity is due to a unique combination of speed, skill, agility, grace, teamwork, finesse involved in playing the game.

At AZ Sports League we operate year round 6 on 6 LAX leagues for all skill levels.  From collegiate level players to those brand new to picking up a stick we’ve got space for everyone in our program.

Games are played in Tempe, Mesa and Scottsdale with seasons lasting 8 weeks.  Adult Lacrosse players from across the city join us for this fast paced highly entertaining format of LAX.

As our league grows we welcome you to join us for the action.  E-Mail adam@azsportsleague.com to get yourself or team signed up.

League Structure

The Lacrosse group is not associated with the Arizona Sports League. When a league is formed we’ll take an active role in running it. Currently we’re just sending people to play the pickup games.

Team Formations

The time has arrived to form up teams. These will be temporary Lacrosse teams for the spring. Then in the summer we’ll continue to do pickup games and in the fall form new ones.

Medical Coverage

Need to bring this up, whenever playing a sport such as Lacrosse, there’s a physical nature to the game.  Everyone needs to understand that there is a risk associated with playing.  We are running a limited/no contact league  Everyone is casual.  Yet you can still twist a knee or take a tumble.  Everyone should have medical insurance.  You can pick up accidental insurance on the cheap if you lack medical insurance.

Coed & Men's Leagues

Right now the plan is to build a coed Lacrosse league. Then as we get that one running we’ll do a men’s league on Saturday. The concern is if we try to offer too many leagues at first then we’ll dilute the player pool and not get enough numbers for any league.

Waivers

Before playing in the pickup games you need to complete a waiver.  You can download the waiver + here.

Cost

As stated several times, these leagues are free to play.  We might charge a nominal fee to replace the nets as they get worn out, but we’re talking a couple bucks.

NOW… when we move to a more formalized league with officials and stats being tracked then there will be a cost associated with the league.  Yet we want to continue and offer a free league.

Format

The games will be seven vs seven and played on a smaller field than the normal sport. There will be six field players and one goalie. These games are NON-CONTACT. When we proceed with the league/tournament we’ll break it down into men, women, and coed.

Time & Location

Please contact Phil to find out the time and location.  The past couple weeks we played Sunday mornings at 10:00am,  but might do different days and times.

League Play

We’re currently playing a couple times per week.  One league is non-contact but you will need to have gloves and mouth pieces.  We highly recommend other protective gear because Lacrosse is a sport and injuries do occur no matter how cautious we can be.  We will regulate play because this is a casual, recreational league.  In the coming months we can form up a full contact league, but at this time let’s keep in simple.

Basic Rules

During the pickup games we’ll have some basic rules.  These sessions are non-contact so in order to stop people running up and down the field we will have a five step rule, no more then five steps per player.  We will also have a three pass rule before anyone can score a goal.
