Our BULLDOG ELITE summer lacrosse teams have been busy this summer! NGLA has 3 teams participating in lacrosse tournaments this season. They have participated in the following tournaments:
Spring Fever Lacrosse Tournament in Dacula, GA in May
Warrior Rocket City Lacrosse Tournament in Huntsville, AL in June
Catawba Classic Lacrosse Tournament in Rock Hill, SC in June
Tournaments consist of each team playing THREE games on SAT and TWO games on SUN – with an additional game if they advance to Championship game.
At the Huntsville Tournament, our U13 Team advanced to the championship game and went home feeling proud of achieving a “finalist” recognition.
For the Catawba Tournament in Rock Hill, SC recently, our U11 and U13 Teams BOTH WON the championship game in the B Bracket and the U13 Team went undefeated for the weekend! Another exciting accomplishment that weekend was ALL 3 teams won BOTH games that they played on Sunday.
All of the players are improving with each tournament and have come together as a team – even having fun while working hard! We have all been very proud of their dedication.
They will all be headed to The Chattanooga Challenge Tournament in mid-July to wrap up the season.
Many thanks to the coaches for our 3 teams:
U11: Jason Puckett, Chuck Shallat, & Matthew Swanson
U13: Doug Brandon, Arthur Cho, Steve Tralongo & John Tamburo
U15: Siaffa Jones, Chris Cottengim
Our older girls lacrosse players started the summer off busy by participating in a 6 week skills clinic this summer. There were 25 girls, rising 6-8 graders who got involved. In June, they participated in the Gerdie Classic Lacrosse Tournament in Woodstock, GA.

The sport of Lacrosse has gained popularity over the past few years, not only in Gwinnett County, but all across the US. As a result, lacrosse is now an approved GHSA varsity sport in Gwinnett County. The mission of the North Gwinnett Lacrosse Association is to provide a well-rounded lacrosse program for elementary and middle school boys and girls under 15 years of age. The NGLA will endeavor to establish, in our youth, the ideals of good sportsmanship and conduct. We aim to provide an enjoyable means of developing the fundamental life skills of leadership, self-discipline, team play, camaraderie and educational values. Through this great sport, our many coaches and volunteers will promote both physical and mental well being in a safe and enjoyable environment. We thank you for giving us the opportunity to be a small part in the development of your child's development and growth.
