GLAX: 2017Spirit wear

Below you will find the link for the 2017 spring girls lacrosse spirit wear store.  Please note that the store closes on Feb 26 (after teams have been made) and your order will not be processed until then.  Each player will need to get the grey women's locker tee.  If anyone needs help paying for this please talk to Coach Schnapp when you make the team.

To avoid any confusion it may be a good idea to wait until they have their uniform number.  Also, each order will be shipped to your HOUSE, not to the school.

Happy browsing!
