AZ Girls Lacrosse (AZGL) was established in 2004 by Jessica (Livingston) Barden to help grow and promote girls lacrosse in Arizona. Lacrosse is a game of finesse and skill. You play with a small, rubber ball and it is passed from stick to stick up and down the field and into the goal to score a point. It’s called the fastest game on two feet and uses a combination of skills similar to other sports like soccer, basketball and hockey.
Jessica (Livingston) Barden was an All-American Lacrosse Player at Sweet Briar College in Virginia. Her passion and love for the game, combined with good coaching and some natural skills, led her to start AZGL.
