Join us as we launch the conversation about mental health and the role coaches, parents and sports administrators can play in supporting and encouraging youth athletes as they cope with the struggles and pressures of their early development.
Come and hear from renowned local experts as they help adults who work with student athletes:
• Understand the pressures facing student athletes in 2019
• Recognize the warning signs for potential youth in distress
• Guide athletes to available local resources for assistance

All GFLA players must have a current US Lacrosse membership for insurance purposes. As part of registration, we offer a self-register process where our system is linked to US Lacrosse's and will check if your player’s US Lax membership is valid for the duration of the program. If not, you will be directed off to US Lax's website to extend it and return to complete our registration process.
Register early to take advantage of the Early Bird Discount which ends on 1/4/2019. Regular fees end on 1/31/19 and late fees begin on 2/1/19.
The girls uniform store will close on January 13, 2019 so check your closets and drawers now and make sure your player(s) have a uniform and that it fits! Uniforms ordered after that may not arrive in time for spring games.
All tryouts will be at Nike 4. Please arrive at the field 10-15 minutes early to sign in. If it’s cold, dress accordingly, consider bringing hand warmers.
See the website for Player Evaulation Schedule under Spring 2019 Lacrosse.
There are no tryouts for girls K-2. Only girls seeking placement on the A team need to attend tryouts.
We plan to continue our two initiatives: (1) concussion education and baseline testing and (2) Positive Coaching Alliance coach/parent/player education. More information about these programs will be available soon. GFLA will again host the US Lacrosse training seminar for new coaches in January. Any parent can learn to coach!
GFLA is a PARENT-RUN, volunteer non-profit organization. Please consider volunteering your time to support the program. Make some memories with your son or daughter!
Nike 4 Donor Wall to Recognize Supporters & GFLA Alumni!
Dear Parents and Current & Former Players:
You may have noticed some activity near the entrance of our wonderful Nike 4 field. After many years, we are nearing the completion of the last phase of Nike 4 construction. An impressive entry gate and donor recognition wall is almost complete. Soon we will begin construction of a throwing wall capable of use by both lacrosse and field hockey players. Wall Ball comes to Nike 4!
Information on the donor wall is on our website under the new tab: Nike 4 Field Fund. We have limited spaces to recognize both early and more recent supporters who helped to fund our investment in Nike 4. Many of the original families who started this project years ago have kids who never even had the chance to play on Nike 4. They did their part to make this wonderful field available for players of today and the future. Please consider this opportunity to “pay it forward” to future families by supporting this last push to retire the field debt!
We are also offering an opportunity for contributors at higher levels to have players listed as “alumni.” If your kids played Great Falls lacrosse, and then took the life lessons they learned onto greater successes later, this is your chance to leave your mark on Nike 4! For current players, we will list your child according to the year they will finish Spring in 8th grade as that is their anticipated "graduation year" out of GFLA.
