Welcome to The Norwalk Lacrosse Association Website
Welcome to the Official Site of Norwalk Lacrosse Association, Inc.! 
Norwalk Lacrosse Association (NLA) has been the parent affilliate of Norwalk Junior Lacrosse (NJL) since 1990. Our goal is to provide our youth players the opportunity to learn the fundamental skills of lacrosse, participate in a rewarding team experience, and have fun playing the game. We achieve these goals by providing pre-season clinics, in-season practices and games, and post season tournaments.      

Norwalk Lacrosse Association also supports the Lacrosse programs of our two city high schools, Norwalk High School and Brien McMahon High School.  Through our collaboration with all our boys and girls coaches, we provide a structured curriculum from Kindergarten to 8th grade that prepares our players for higher level competition in high school and beyond.

Norwalk Junior Lacrosse (NJL) is a member of US Lacrosse, the national governing body of the sport.  We are also a member of the Connecticut New York Youth Lacrosse Association (CONNY), which includes fifty-five community based youth lacrosse programs fielding nearly 600 separate teams across Connecticut, Westchester Count, NY, and New York City.

2020 Tentative Spring Practice Schedule

To help Norwalk Junior Lacrosse parents plan for the 2020 spring season, following are anticipated practice schedules.

While we will make every effort to adhere to these schedules, but they are subject to change based on registration numbers.

In addition during the season they WILL CHANGE in response to weather, field conditions (especially at Veterans Park), the periodic availability of the FieldTurf fields at both high schools and conflicts. Therefore, if you have any doubts, it is imperative that you check your email and this norwalklax.org home page before leaving for any practice. 

These schedules presuppose a March 29th start, but for Veterans Park, that depends on field conditions.

GIRLS PLAYER EVALUTIONS:  For grades 5-8th there will be player evaluations on Wednesday Feb 5th and 12th @ Sono Field House.  Times will be sent to registered players in January.

GIRLS INDOOR PRACTICES: All girls teams have three scheduled indoor practices at Sono Field House on March 8th, 22nd & 29th. You will be notified times by end of February. If you have any questions about these practices, contact Karen O'Brien-White (njlgirlslax@gmail.com) or Summer Gigliotti (njlcoach5@gmail.com)

BOYS MARCH PRACTICES: A separate notice will be sent listing a full schedule of boys team practices during March on the FieldTurf field at Nathan Hale. Direct any questions about boys practices to Coach Corry (norwalkboyscoordinator@gmail.com).

If you haven't already seen it, the following link will take you to a terrific documentary video about the origins, history, growth, and future of both men's and women's lacrosse. It is well worth the fifty-five minutes it runs.


The documentary does, however, omit one fascinating detail. James Naismith, credited with inventing basketball while teaching at Springfield College, was a Canadian and a lacrosse player. So it's not that lacrosse is a lot like basketball ... it's that basketball is a lot like lacrosse.
