The number of teams will be based on the number of players that register. Ideally the teams will be set by grade year (i.e., a 5th grade team or two 5th grade teams). However, based on registration numbers, some grade years might need to be combined (i.e., a 5th/6th grade team).
All players will be placed on a team. No prior experience required.
The lacrosse season starts in late March and ends in mid-June.
Each team will practice twice a week for 1.5 hours. Practices will take place at Walsh Intermediate School and most likely will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30 – 7pm. Each team will play approximately 10 games on various days of the week against other town travel programs over the season and will also participate in one selected Jamboree/tournament as well as the season-end CONNY tournament at Yale on one of the first few weekends of June.
Players in Grades 3 & 4 will play 7 vs 7 games on smaller sized fields.
Players in Grades 5 - 8 will play 10 vs 10 games on full sized fields.
Full lacrosse equipment is required: Lacrosse helmet, Mouth Guard, Shoulder Pads, Elbow Pads, Lacrosse Gloves, Protective Cup and Lacrosse Stick.
Players will receive a travel team game jersey and shorts that will be used during the season and then returned to BYL at the end of the season.
