Girls Travel Lacrosse



Girls Jaws travel lacrosse is intended to complement other travel programs like Shine and Lax Maniacs, not to compete with them.  This means we try to attend somewhat local tournaments and give the girls an opportunity to continue to play lacrosse with their other travel teams, but also be on a competitive team with other PV girls as they approach high school together.
