What equipment is required to play?

On the left hand side of our web page is a list of things that are required to play the game of lacrosse.  At U9 and U11 age groups there is VERY limited body contact.  At U13 there is limited body contact.  Your primary goal is to play the ball on the ground not the man.  However, lacrosse is a contact sport.

What is Gainesville RedHawks Lacrosse?

Gainesville RedHawks Lacrosse is recreational based lacrosse that serves Gainesville and surrounding areas.  This is NOT select based lacrosse and any male - fitting the age guidelines regardless of ability level - is eligible to play.  

Please note:  For safety reasons, some new to the game (U11 and U13) players may not be able to compete in our first tournament because it takes place after only 4 practices.  Our goal it to make sure all players understand the rules of the game and can compete in a safe manner.  Please see your coach for details or email us at Jmontes28(at)


What will I need at the time I register?

The system will walk you through obtaining your son's USLacrosse number.  This number ($25) provides him with insurance and allows him to compete in the clinics.  You cannot register without this.

You will also need to make a credit card payment.
