Welcome to EYLA Boys Spring 2016 Season!

 

Lacrosse equipment: Boys Lacrosse requires generic athletic items: mouth guard, athletic supporter with cup, football or soccer style field cleats (not metal), as well as unique Lacrossesse equipment: helmet, shoulder pads, arm pads, and gloves. Hockey shoulder and arm pads may be used, hockey gloves are safe enough, but may not be flexible enough. Hockey helmets will only be permitted for U-9 and younger.

Equipment MUST be obtained prior to the first practice, there will be NO equipment available at the fields, your son/daughter will not be able to participate without all required equipment

EYLA is excited to offer another season of fun, educational and competitive lacrosse programs for youth boys ranging in age from Kindergarten to 8th grade.  Our program administrators are busy finalizing details about the upcoming season but we have opened up the following information page explaining our Spring 2016 season plans.
