Boy's Summer Registration is OPEN!!

Boy's Summer Registration is OPEN!!


GIYL will once again offer summer lacrosse for boys in grades 3-10.
(Girls will offer a summer team for current Mod, JV and Varsity players. Please contact your coach for details)
Please note that we will not be able to refund US Lacrosse memberships if the season has to be canceled for any reason.
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 May and games will be played in June and July.  This is all contingent on having enough players register and having enough volunteer coaches for each team. 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.
The cost will be $125 for 3/4 and 5/6 teams and $90 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 $90 due to fewer practices, games, and referee costs)
US Lacrosse membership is $30 for U14 and $35 for U15 - U18.
FYI... Your player's 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 the player profile on the GIYL website.
**Please make sure your 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 the 2021-2022 school year (not their grade in September 2022).
** 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.
