Piedmont Premier Women's Lacrosse League Debuts this Fall

 In an effort to enhance the Triad’s level of women's lacrosse play, Greensboro College women's lacrosse head coach Mallory Zelawski, local women's lacrosse coach and trainer Michael Stuckhert and the High Point-Thomasville HiToms sports franchise have joined forces to provide central North Carolina’s women’s lacrosse players with a regional, competitive fall league.

 Extending from mid-September to early November, the Piedmont Premier Women’s Lacrosse Fall League will be an ideal opportunity for area players to sharpen skills and gain valuable in-game experience. Featuring high school team entries (school specific squads) and/or independent players (assigned to a squad), the PPWL fall season will take place at Greensboro College’s Pride Field (on-campus) and feature instruction from GC coaches and players, area high school coaches and regional lax clinicians.

 Open to young ladies from the ages of 13-18, the PPWL will primarily take place on Sunday afternoons with weekday practice schedules coordinated and scheduled by individual teams respectively. Featuring pre-game instructional sessions and live game-play, the PPWL Fall Series will offer a range of ‘game-like’ formats: 5 on 5, 7 on 7 and 11 on 11 designed to bolster player confidence and facilitate advanced learning.

 Launching league play the last weekend of September, all players must register independently by September 20th and be an active US Lax member to fulfill registration requirements. Finally, the PPWL is also promoting a unique pre-season training camp opportunity coordinated by GC Head Coach Mallory Zelawski. Scheduled to feature a morning of skill development and live scrimmages, the three-hour session (pre-registration is required, $30 additional camp cost) will be a tremendous opportunity to engage in a higher level of learning session.
