EYLA Girls Fall 2016
Season  - 9/11 - 10/23

 

Welcome to Fall 2016! Fall is a great time to try out the sport of lacrosse or hone your skills for the Spring season. Lacrosse is the fastest growing field sport in the US, and with this there are changing US Lacrosse rules per age group, leagues and parameters for lacrosse at this particular time.Please read the registration carefully as we are adapting to the new US Lacrosse age guidelines and format of play for our younger players. All players are required to be US Lacrosse members, which is $25 annual membership.

We are always searching for parents to help coach, manage or assist EYLA with the growth of the game, please reach out to beth@eylax.com if you are interested. 

US Lacrosse is moving toward the birthdate model, not grade model for youth programming, 8/31 cutoff. EYLA Girls will transition to the USL model beginning this Fall. For more information on ages - see link US Lacrosse.  http://www.uslacrosse.org/rules/age-eligibility-guidelines.aspx In addition based on the USL Lacrosse ADM protocol.
