Bellaire Women's Lacrosse is a non-UIL sport that provides a fun and competitive lacrosse playing atmosphere for high school girls in 9th-12th grade. We are a Division III team playing in the Texas Girls High School Lacrosse League (TGHSLL), South District. The team is open to Bellaire High School students, or players zoned to Bellaire whose school does not offer playing opportunities. Physical education credit is available to those players who meet specific HISD participation requirements.
The team consists of one varsity team and a developmental team. The varsity team is composed of players who have demonstrated the attitude, skills, athleticism, and commitment to succeed at the varsity level and strive to develop the skill to play at the collegiate level. The devlopmental team is composed of less-experienced players who demonstrate a commitment to play and improve. Both squads work under a unified training curriculum administered by the coaching staff which allows junior players to progress to the varsity level as their skills develop.
Our fall season runs September through December with training three evenings per week, and all players participate in playdays and tournaments on a varsity or junior varsity team. Coaches will often move players between squads during the fall to assess playing skills and identify the best balance for each roster. The spring rosters are usually set by early November in order to prepare for the spring season.
The spring season runs from February through April, with the varsity team playing 10 - 12 games. The developmental team will participate in scrimmages.
Practices are typically held Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday evenings from 5:00 to 7:00 pm at St. Philip's United Methodist Church.
