Lynnfield Youth Lacrosse is devoted to teaching the game of lacrosse in a fun and nurturing environment. We aim to provide boys and girls from K-8 an opportunity to learn the game, develop their skills and compete against teams from other towns. We also offer a Learn-2-Lax program for children as young as kindergarten. The Board, coaches and volunteers want all our young athletes to grow, have fun playing and develop a love for this great game. Our coaches go through the US Lacrosse, MassYouth Lacrosse (MYL) and Positive Coaching Alliance certification process.
LYL is affiliated with US Lacrosse and MYL. We assign players in accordance with the MYL grade-based designations. Lynnfield Youth Lacrosse conducts 10 weeks of pre-season indoor skills beginning in January. Our teams play all regular season games on Sundays from April until early June. All home games are played at Lynnfield High School. For more on the rules check out the MYL and US Lacrosse sites.
Our U7 clinic is an introductory program for all Kindergarten players.
The practices will be held once a week in the evenings during the spring. The philosophy is to introduce the basic lacrosse skills with FUN game like activities and ensure everyone is excited to come back the following year.
From 1st grade to 8th grade, the MYL Classic League is an 8-game season plus a Jamboree Tournament from early April through mid-June.
Practices typically begin at the end of March and will be twice a week in the evenings with all games being on Sundays. Our philosophy in the Classic program is that all players participate equally in games and on evenly balanced teams. There are no "A" and "B" nor standings and playoffs at any level of the Classic program.
The Select Lacrosse Program offers an additional playing opportunity for the more experienced and committed U15 (7th & 8th grade) and U13 (5th & 6th grade) players.
In this program, players enhance their love for the game and improve their lacrosse skills through competitive games against the best players from surrounding towns. Practices will be once a week with games on Friday nights. All select players must participate in their classic town team as well. There will be tryouts for this team.
