Description

 

NALA’s GBYLA teams will be North Alabama's most committed lacrosse players.  This is NALAs most competitive program, featuring professional coaches, southeastern travel for games and GBYLA hosted games.  Tryouts for this team will be held during the first week of December. 

 

GBYLA teams will practice two times per week and play 10-14 games during the regular season.  5-8 weekends will consist of travel for these games from February to May.  Travel will be anywhere from 2-5 hours and can include Birmingham, Nashville, Chattanooga, Knoxville, Atlanta and Mobile.  Most of our trips will be to Birmingham.

North Alabama Lacrosse League - NALL

 

Description

Our North Alabama Lacrosse League is our local “house” league that involves travel between Madison and Huntsville only.   Teams will be made up according to the neighborhood lived in and or high school affiliated with.  Practices will be local to your teams affiliated location (Madison, Huntsville, Hampton Cove and etc) and games will be played at Merrimack Turf Fields.  Some games will be held at local high schools when Merrimack is unavailable. 

 

Practices will be two times a week in February.  Then drop to 1 time per week in March.  

Games will be played on weekends.  League size will dictate how many games are played.  Games will be small sided, fast in nature with the addition of a shot clock and be enjoyable for players, coaches and spectators.  More details on this later.
