Equipment will be issued this Saturday February 25, 2016 from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm
This Saturday, February 25, 2016 we will be at the Senior Citizens Building located at 110 Union Street from 10 am until 3pm to issue equipment to all age groups. Age groups will not be broken up in times frames this year.
A range of coaches will be on site to meet and help fit players. They will be glad to answer any questions you may have.
Also, If you have registered, or getting ready to register, and haven't sent in your fees, please don't place them in the mail and just bring everything with you on Saturday. We are also asking if you will bring a copy or show us an electronically copy of your US lacrosse membership, so we can see the expiration date and it's up to date.
Equipment will only be issued if all fees have been paid in full and membership is up to date.
We would like for you to come out Saturday if at all possible, because we haven't made plans for an additional date to issue equipment at this time.
There has also been several questions from parents as to what type of equipment will be issued, and average costs if they were to go out and purchase their own sets. I have place a picture on Facebook of the closest detail of average costs of equipment that is similiar to what will be issued.
Mouth guards are required, and not supplied by the Foundation. You will need one before your player is able to practice and play. Officials are requiring mouth guards are NOT WHITE OR CLEAR.
Registering will continue to stay open until the end of the first week of practices. We are hoping to get practices started next week.
Practices times and dates are located at the bottom.
Registering is Open for 2017. Please take the time to read the below message.
Parents and Players, Welcome to another season of Lacrosse.
There are a few new things in the works that will affect how we play lacrosse in the next couple of years. We are trying our best to keep you informed of the changes. The best way to understand all of the changes is to go to links on this site and click on US Lacrosse Association-Players-Boy's Rules.
Recently, U.S. Lacrosse has formally issued new 2017 Youth Rules and Age Groups. These reflect MAJOR changes to the sport YOUTH levels. These changes may or may not go into affect for 2017. We have the choice not to go to these age groups this year, However, next year we must conform to the new rules and age groups. Those who officiate our games from SWVLOA are trying to prepare for the upcoming season the best they can.
Right before the Holidays, all of the individuals in charge of scheduling for this area had a group meeting and made the decision to play under the 2016 Rules for one more year; at this time there still may be minimal changes that affect how we play this year.
This is what is planned for the upcoming year.
YOUTH and MIDDLE SCHOOL PROGRAMS (playing under U.S. Lacrosse Youth Rules) need to understand the rules and age groups.
a. Former U15 essentially disappears
b. Former U13 becomes new U14
c. Former U11 becomes new U12
d. Former U9 becomes U10.
e. We don't expect you to have a U8 or U6.
