Welcome to Evanston Youth Lacrosse (EYLA) Spring Season!

This Spring Season EYLA will offer both Orange & Blue travel teams (for which tryouts are required) and a separate non-travel team option called the Recreational Team.

The Recreational Team option is intended for newer players. Recreational Team players will practice only once per week separate from the travel teams, which will allow our newer players to focus more on developing skills and learning the sport of lacrosse. The Recreational Team players will participate in house league games - evenly matched teams including all travel and non-travel team players - but will not participate in IBLA league games or tournaments.

Our Boys travel teams (Orange & Blue), similar to last year, will be participating in the Illinois Boys Lacrosse Association (IBLA) league and our EYLA programs will be consistent with the IBLA league format that is based on grades, not age.

- Grades 7&8 (Majors)

- Grades 5&6 (Minors)

- Grades 3&4 (Juniors)

- Grades 1&2 (Minis)

- K (included with the Grades 1&2 Recreational Team)
