Spring Rec League

The Spring Recreation League is our main time for playing lacrosse. Our boys and girls teams play other lacrosse clubs in the greater Roanoke region (including Salem, Roanoke, Cave Spring, Forest and Lexington).

Teams are divided by age group and gender according to the USA Lacrosse Age and Ability Guidelines, and teams are constructed and managed to allow players of all experience levels to participate.

Ages

We have opportunities for both boys and girls. Age groups are:

Boys

U14 - grades 7 & 8

U12 - grades 5 & 6

U10 - grades 3 & 4

Girls

U14 - grades 6-8

U11 - grades 4 & 5

U9 - grade 3 (may play up with U11 or in K-League depending on numbers)

* Many high school junior varsity programs permit girls in 8th grade to play which may affect overall rec team composition.

When

Our practices start in the third or fourth week of February with games beginning in the first or second week of March.

Games

Girls will play on Saturdays, typically 2-3 games per week. Games last 50 minutes for U14 & U11 and 40 minutes for U9.

Boys will also play on Saturdays, typically one game per week. Games last 60 minutes.

Occasionally our teams participate in play days where several teams converge at a location to play multiple games. Those days will be noted on the team schedule.

Where

We hold both practices and home games in the Blacksburg/Christiansburg area. Field locations are yet to be determined.

Practices

Practice dates will be determined. U14 teams practice 2-3 times per week. Other teams practice 1-2 times per week.

Jerseys

Jerseys may be purchased, or will be provided. You may choose to purchase a jersey during the registration process.

Frequently Asked Questions

What equipment does my player need to have?

Girls equipment includes a mouthpiece, goggles, and a stick.

Boys equipment includes helmet, mouthpiece, shoulder pads, elbow pads, gloves, and a protective cup. All equipment is mandatory for play.

Both boys and girls are strongly encouraged to wear cleats. Those who wish to borrow or rent equipment should check out the NRVLC equipment rental page for more information.

How can I get involved with NRVLC?

As a non-profit organization we rely on volunteers to coach our teams, line the playing fields and run the score tables. Volunteering is a great way to get to know other families and to give back to our club. We would love to have YOU join our efforts to keep our practices and game days running smoothly. You can sign up to volunteer when you register your child or contact manager@nrvlc.org.

Will my player need to travel during the spring season?

Yes, for Saturday games our teams often travel to the greater Roanoke region.
