Competitive Lacrosse:  Granite Bay Youth Lacrosse teams in the spring play against other local clubs in games that are "rec" level lacrosse.  Competitive lacrosse (with the best players from the local spring teams) is played during a summer season and a fall/winter season.  Lacrosse players do not choose either rec or comp (like in soccer).  Comp lacrosse players choose to play competitive summer and fall/winter seasons in addition to their rec season in the spring.  There is a lot of variation, but most comp clubs/teams ...

  • Have teams for 10U through high school
  • Have tryouts to be on these teams
  • Practice twice a week during the summer and late fall and early winter
  • Travel to 2-3 weekend tournaments in the summer and another 2-3 weekend tournaments in the winter
