Mobile, Alabama youth lacrosse


How it all started...

The Mobile Youth Lacrosse League was founded in 2010 with a core group of Lower Alabama Bayhawk lacrosse players living in Mobile. Still working with the natural excitement of the sport, dozens of new players joined that first year and the Mavericks were able to compete in the Gulf Coast Lacrosse Conference (GCLC) from the very beginning. The team has grown from one U13 team to today's 8U, 10U, 12U, 14U, two GIRLS teams, with over 100 players. Now the teams travel and compete in tournaments across the Gulf Coast.
