Girl's Lacrosse Competitive and Recreational Landscape in Southern California

Southern California is growing fast in women's lacrosse and we recognize all programs will bring a unique approach, network and coaching staff.

Club Team vs. Rec team

Club Teams typically formulate teams of like minded players from the area (or not) who train together to compete in various tournaments (local and nationally). Depending on the tournament, college coaches look to those tournaments to recruit by grade year. Club Teams have experienced coaches who have played or have coaching experience to play at a higher level. Aligning with the right club team should align with you or your daughter's athletic goals. Note, every club is NOT created equal. It's important to do the research as the models can vary from club to club. Club teams are more competitive than Rec and typically hold tryouts.

Rec (Recreational) Teams typically formulate where the primary purpose of the activity is participation, with the related goals of learning the game, making friends, physical fitness and most importantly having fun. All can participate, tryouts may happen when there are too many girls where teams can be formed by skill level. The philosophy here, all should learn the game and play no matter the skill level.


Many variables come into play from logistics to financials, college recruitment (via the tournaments they enter - not all tournaments have recruiting), reputation, etc. Whatever is your WHY, do what's best for you or your daughter's goals.
