Pittsford Girls Youth Teams:

Be sure to follow the Pittsford Girls Varsity team on Twitter (@PLaxGirls). They are off to a great start on the season (2-0). Unfortunately, due to COVID, we are not having our usual Big Sister/Little Sister program, but we can still stay connected with them.

Also, you will see updates on Pittsford alumnae who are having much success in college. All of these young women started their lacrosse careers in the same program that you are in now. They all worked hard on the field, in school, and in the community. As a result, they have had many fantastic opportunities after high school.

I have been around long enough to have seen the college players when they were in the youth program, and I can say that they were just like the current players. Most of them played multiple sports (soccer, basketball, field hockey, etc.) and participated in multiple activities (Girl Scouts, music, drama, dance, etc.).

So just have fun, play hard, study hard, do good in the community, and I'm confident that plenty of opportunities will be available for you, too.

Length of girls lacrosse sticks
by posted 04/13/2021


We have noticed at practices that some girls have sticks that are too long and they are difficult to handle. We recommend that sticks be cut so they are easier to handle.

A good starting point up to 2nd-grade is about 37 inches, from the top of the plastic head to the bottom of the shaft. Actual length will depend on the age and size of the player. You still want the stick to be long enough for them to use for at least another year or two. If in doubt, keep it longer as you can always cut it shorter if necessary. Measure twice, cut once. Sticks can be cut with a hacksaw. Just be careful!

Most youth sticks can be cut at the bottom of the shaft. In this case, be sure to keep the rubber butt end and add back to the shortened shaft. Sticks MUST have the rubber butt end for safety.

You can also usually cut the top off of the shaft, but this means removing the head, cutting, replacing the head, and maybe even pre-drilling a new screw hole or using a self-tapping screw.

If you're not sure what to do, chat with one of the coaches first.

Welcome to the spring season for Pittsford Girls Lacrosse for Pre-K and Kindergarten! We are looking forward to a fantastic season!

All details for the season, including the schedule, are on our website under the Girls Youth tab. Here's a direct link to the page specifically for this age group. Be sure to bookmark the link for easy access: http://LeagueAthletics.com/Page.asp?n=107841&org=pittsfordlacrosse.org

We start on Tuesday, April 6. All practices in April are indoors at The Athletic Campus (3195 Brighton Henrietta Town Line Rd, Rochester, NY 14623) in the field house in the rear of the building.

Starting in May, we expect to be outside on Mondays, but the location is to be determined. We will send an update once we know more.

Note that practice days and times are different in April and May.

We encourage you to attend as many practices as possible, but we know families are busy and sometimes there are conflicts. It's absolutely fine to miss a practice, so don't stress too much about it.

Your daughter must have a stick, goggles or helmet, and a mouthguard. Please reply to this email if you have questions about equipment.

Sarah Morgenstern is the coordinator for this age group. Her email is sarah@team-tights.com. Feel free to contact her with any questions about the program.

Enjoy your spring break and be ready to play in April!

Go Pittsford!
