POTTSTOWN PA – A new girls lacrosse program, in which Pottsgrove and Pottstown players in fifth to eighth grades can learn and develop the fundamentals of lacrosse and compete against other area teams, will be launched this spring by the Pottstown Area Police Athletic Association (PAL). Shelby Iezzi is serving as its coach and program director.
Practice is scheduled to begin in March at the PAL Sports Complex, 1455 Chestnut Grove Rd. (near Route 100 North and State Street), with games through May. Home games will be held at the complex; away games could be held in Boyertown, Limerick, the Methacton area, the Upper Perkiomen and Perkiomen valleys, Phoenixville, and Coventry.
The PAL is part of the Tri-County Division of the Philadelphia Area Girls Lacrosse Association.
Program registration opened Jan. 10 (2018) on the PAL website, here. A $100 registration fee is being charged, and covers PAGLA membership, insurance, the use of practice and game pinnies, and team socks.
Iezzi is “a skilled and knowledgeable coach” who played at OJR High School and Bloomsburg University, the PAL said. She has coached at Pope John Paul II High School in Royersford, and Dynamite Lacrosse since 2012.
