GCLA lacrosse games. Since the league was founded in 1995, GCLA officials have called virtually
hundreds of lacrosse games and have been vital to the growth of the sport throughout the Gulf
What we are:
In the GCLA, referees, players, and teams all sit at the same side of the table, working together to
advance the sport of lacrosse. The GCLA exists to provide a positive and fun competitive
lacrosse experience for everyone- including our referees.
