8U and 10U Boys' City League
Granite Bay Youth Lacrosse is pleased to offer a City League program for players in the 8U-10U age group, specifically tailored for those just starting out.
The object of the game is to score more goals than your opponent. Lacrosse a fast-paced, high scoring game, and is the fastest growing sport - particularly in California. There are many opportunities to play lacrosse at all levels including youth and high school, club and college.
This is a full equipment developmental league for younger, new players and for players who need to acquire more skills before they are ready to play at the next level.
Granite Bay’s City League was designed to avoid most scheduling conflicts with other sports and activities. City League is ideal for players with minimal to no lacrosse experience, and each season a substantial number of players are brand new to lacrosse.
Most City League players will be in 4th grade or younger. Please visit our age eligibility page for more information
