Because of the early start of play (Mid-March) for all A Teams in PAGLA this season, our opening weekends and A Team Tryouts are much earlier than in recent years. All tryouts will be held at The Asplundh Field House at Bryn Athyn College in Bryn Athyn, PA. The address for Bryn Athyn college is 2945 College Dr, Bryn Athyn, PA 19009.
★ Players who are interested in playing for the A Team MUST attend both tryouts.
Saturday, February 6: 1:00-2:45 OPENING DAY!!!!
ALL 5th and 6th Grade Players and Coaches
This will be a fun, educational session that will provide new and returning players with the 'philosophical' foundation of AGLC, a chance to get to know one another, an introduction to the basic fundamentals of lacrosse, and an opportunity to become familiar with the AGLC Community!
This session will include large group activities, as well as small groups and stations.

ALL 7th and 8th Grade Players and Coaches
