1.What age group is Scoopers?
Pre-K and K.
At least 5 years old by June 30th of the current season.
2. Where do I need to live to be eligible to participate?
Girls must be Fairfax County residents of one of the following zip codes: 22303, 22306, 22307, 22308, 22309, 22310
According to Northern Virginia Youth Lacrosse League (NVYLL), players must fall under the West Potomac, Mount Vernon, Hayfield and Edison HS pyramids.
We will no longer be able to make exceptions for girls that live outside of these areas.
3. Where are the clinics held?
West Potomac High School
4. What times are the clinics and how long do they last?
3:45-5pm Sunday afternoons
5. How many clinics do you have each season?
This year our clinic schedule is:
- 3/26 - Clinic #1
- 4/02 - Clinic #2
- 4/09 - Off (Spring Break)
- 4/16 - Off (Easter)
- 4/23 - Clinic #3
- 4/30 - Clinic #4

6. I'm interested in coaching, what do I do?
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you don't have experience, don't worry. At least half of our Scoopers coaches are new to Lacrosse.
7. What do I do if I'm interested in volunteering?
We have volunteer positions that we need to fill each season (Uniforms, Team Parents, Registration, Fields, Equipment, etc.).
Email email@example.com if you're interested.
8. Are there teams?
We divide the girls into teams or groups by their age.
Each group is usually no more than 6-10 girls with preferably 1 or 2 coaches per group.
9. Are there games or scrimmages?
At this age level it is very challenging to set up games or scrimmages.
Instead, we keep the clinics extremely fun for the girls though and incorporate a lot of fun games, relay races, etc. into each clinic.
Again, these are "CLINICS".
10. What equipment is required?
A"GIRLS" lacrosse stick.
Please do not bring smaller "Fiddle" sticks or "Boys" lacrosse sticks.
It's very important that the Girls learn (even at an early age) how to play with a "Girls" lacrosse stick.
We typically have a few girls show up with "Fiddle" sticks each season and those kids have a more difficult time learning to catch and throw.
11. Do we need mouthguards or protective eyewear?
Mouthguards and eyewear are required for Girls 1/2 through Girls 7/8, but NOT Scoopers.
Since there are no scrimmages or games and since we use soft pink balls, we have not required Scoopers to wear this equipment.
12. When is registration?
Registration went live in early January for the Spring season. Go to our Home Page and click the red "REGISTER NOW" button to begin the process.
