The Greater Eastside Lacrosse League (GELL) is a boy's youth lacrosse league open to all youth lacrosse clubs that feed into Washington State's KingoCo conference high schools. Our member clubs develop youth boys in the sport of field lacrosse. The league provides spring and fall game schedules for grade-based 3/4, 5/6, 7/8B, and 7/8A divisions. The spring game schedule, our main season, runs from March through May. The fall game schedule runs from September through November.

Fall 2018 Fall Schedule Revision
The 2018 GELL Fall Ball season begins after Labor Day weekend (9/1-9/3) and ends before Thanksgiving (11/22). The schedule was revised to accomodate the scheduling constraints of an odd number of teams. To ensure a full 5 game schedule in the 34, 56, and 78 divisions, it was necessary to go to a 6 week schedule with each team having a different bye week.

GELL One Team In-Season Rule

GELL “One Team In-Season” Rule (adopted by vote of 14-1-2 on 10/12/2017)

Youth players (grades 3-8) within all GELL member programs may only play for one team during the GELL spring season. The start date for playing for one team only is the Saturday of President’s Day weekend and the end date is the end of day Monday of Memorial Day weekend. The prohibition includes practices, tryouts, and games of lacrosse. Only lacrosse activities are prohibited.

Any GELL program with a player who violates this rule will be subject to a financial penalty and possible sanctions to be determined by the executive board.

Intra-program swinging of players, as specified in section IV rule 4, is allowed.

This rule does not apply during the optional fall ball season.
