Do you remember when there were no varsity high school lacrosse programs for girls in north Florida? We do! In 2006 FCL was born, becoming the FIRST league for girls on the FIRST COAST. Back then we played a lot of 7's lacrosse but we quickly grew the sport by helping to add varsity programs at both Nease and Bartram Trail in St. Johns County. We helped get Stanton Prep, Mandarin, Sandalwood, and Fletcher off the ground in Duval County. We helped Fleming Island develop a high school team too!
We have trained nearly all of the area's officials, provided free coaching clinics and support for area coaches, and we helped organize girl's lacrosse at the varsity level, enabling FHSAA to adopt the sport statewide. Over the years more than 3,400 girls have played in our league!
Our philosophy is simple: Utilize great fields and organize great lacrosse so that coaches and players can show up and do what they do best: LACROSSE!
This year, D1 Jacksonville University will hold their Green and Gold Scrimmage at FCL! What a great opportunity for all of the girls participating in the league to see this awesome game up close! We hope you will enjoy the new features we are adding to the league as we move into our 13th year.
