Who can play for this program?
- We have U9 and U11 teams for girls in the 2nd through 5th grades.
- The following items are mandatory for practice and games: stick, googles, mouth guard, and cleats. Note: NO tennis shoes/sneakers! Tennis shoes and sneakers often lead to injuries while playing lacrosse, so cleats are preferred. A player will not be able to participate in games or practices without these items.

It is Johns Creek Junior Gladiators Girls Lacrosse Club’s policy that a player will be removed from play immediately in the event that she exhibits signs, symptoms, or behaviors consistent with a concussion and shall return to play only after she has been cleared to resume play by an appropriate health care professional. It is the parent's or guardian's responsibility to seek medical care for a possible concussion and follow the recommendations provided by the health care professional who has examined the player. Parents or guardians should not allow their daughter to resume participation in any practice or game until they've received clearance for her to do so from a qualified health care professional.
