The Greater Eastside youth 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. GELL spans 22 programs (18 members and 4 guest programs) with 110 teams in spring 2020. Our member clubs develop youth in the sport of field lacrosse. The league provides spring and fall game schedules for grade-based K-2, 3/4, 5/6 (55, 56, 66), 7/8 (77, 78, 88) divisions. The spring game schedule, our main season, runs from March through May. The fall game schedule runs from September through November. 

 

Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update

 
Update 3/12 @ 5:00 pm: Following the announcement by Governor Jay Inslee to close all schools in King, Snohomish, and Pierce counties, the GELL Executive Board made a unanimous decision to postpone all GELL activities scheduled through Friday, April 24th
 
Update 3/12 @ 11:00 am: Based on current field closures, the GELL Executive Board made a unanimous decision to postpone all GELL games scheduled through Saturday, March 21st. 
 
Update 3/5: The GELL Executive Board made a unanimous decision to postpone all GELL games scheduled for Saturday, March 7th. The number of programs with closed fields has increased and is likely to grow. We have marked these games as "CANCELLED" in the GELL system. If these games are rescheduled, it will be by extending our season and appending those games at the end. Your board and coaches will be reaching out to you with more information regarding how this impacts your specific program. Most programs will continue to practice as long as they have fields. Those programs with closed fields may be securing alternate fields or partnering with neighboring programs for field access through joint practices and/or scrimmages. Programs that decide to have a scrimmage must have certified US Lacrosse referees in order for the event to be covered by insurance. However, the league will not be providing referees. Each program will need to secure their own referees, either through the WALOA league assignor or on their own.

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.
