Boy's Summer Lacrosse!!

Boy's Summer Registration is OPEN!!

GIYL will once again offer summer lacrosse for boy's in grades 3-11.
(Girls info coming soon)

All of the information below is obviously contingent on Covid protocols and safety measures. Please note that we will not be able to refund US Lacrosse memberships if the season has to be canceled.

We plan on offering the following teams this summer: grade 3/4; grade 5/6; grade 7/8; grade 9-11. Practices will begin in June and games will be played in July.  This is all contingent on having enough players register and having enough volunteer coaches for each team. Due to the school modified, JV and Varsity seasons playing until the end of June, we will be in need of coaches for all of the teams. Please contact Steve Steck ([email protected]) if you wish to be a volunteer coach this season.

We understand that this is a VERY busy time of year and you and your child may have other commitments along the way. Your child does NOT have to make all practices to participate in summer lacrosse, but please make every effort to make as many practices and games as possible.

Cost for will be $110 for 3/4 and 5/6 teams and $80 for the 7/8 and 9-11 teams, plus players must be current US Lacrosse members.
(Grade 7/8 and 9-11 team is only $80 due to less practices, games and referee costs)
US Lacrosse membership is $30 for U14 and $35 for U15 - U18.
** We will not be collecting money for the 2021 summer season until each team has a set schedule, a coach, and the roster is finalized. We want to avoid having to give refunds in case a team can't be fielded or anything is cancelled due to safety measures. However, you will have to be an active US Lacrosse member to complete your final registration. You will not have to input your US Lacrosse information on your initial registration form. Only when you finalize and pay during the final part of your registration later on will you have to input the US Lacrosse information.

FYI... Your players US Lacrosse membership number must be active through August 7 to finalize registration for any GIYL summer program. Membership information for US Lacrosse must match player profile on the GIYL website.
**Please make sure email, phone # and address are the same on GIYL registration and US Lacrosse registration to ensure you will be able to register without any issues. US Lacrosse membership provides GIYL and its players with insurance coverage. It also includes a subscription to Lacrosse Magazine for each player.

Divisions will go by current grade from 2020-2021 school year (not their grade in September 2021).
** If for some reason you are not able to register your child in the appropriate grade level, please email me at [email protected] with his or her birth date and current grade level so I can make the appropriate group open to them.
