Premier Lacrosse League

The Premier Lacrosse League objective is to provide the highest standard of competitive play for regional teams and to assure the continued growth and development of the game of lacrosse.

All games will be played indoors on any of our FOUR FULL‐SIDED OPEN FIELDS (no dasher boards).

League Format


  • Boys and Girls divisions.
  • The league is open to all high school, junior high and club teams.
  • Divisions will be formed based on factors such as team history, level of play and age.
  • Divisions will be defined as registrations are finalized.
  • Since this is a new league, we will rely on coaches' input in defining divisions.

Level of Commitment
Any team considering participation in The Premier Lacrosse League must understand the level of commitment in participating in a league that stretches across the region. All teams understand that this is designed as a regional league and that teams may travel hundreds of miles to participate. The location of the GaREAT Sports Complex is ideal in drawing teams from Ohio, Western PA, Western NY and Michigan. A limited number of teams are accepted. Since lacrosse is an ever growing sport in the state of Ohio, we anticipate that man teams in the state will participate.

Teams interested in participating should contact Matt Tringhese, Director of Sport Operations. or 440‐466‐1002 x107
