Practice days and times have been added below. 

Please note: Little Laxers is our program for K and first time 1st-grade players who are not comfortable with signing up for U9. It's a great way to ease into the sport in a fun, relaxing setting. 

Use this link to REGISTER for all programs:

U15 boys has a wait list. You can till register and get put on the wait list without paying the fees. 

Please let us know if you have any questions or troubles with your registration. Fees have only been raised $5 to keep up with field lining and equipment costs. We are still offering a sibling discount. 

Important things you might want to know:

1. USLacrosse and MBYLL Registrations are Required for every PYL player.
If your son or daughter played in our Little Laxers program last year, they will need to also be registered with US Lacrosse (girls) or MBYLL (boys). This is a separate registration cost and the registration page will take you through that process. The fees will be paid directly to these organizations through our site and those fees cover the insurance required to play in the league. You will need to renew this registration yearly. 

2. Uniform costs will be separate.  Uniforms are used for 2 seasons. For 2019 - Boys will keep the same uniform, as will girls. If you are new to the program or need a larger size, you will be able to order a new uniform. U9 girls are only required to buy a jersey, and U9 boys are only required to purchase a pinnie. More informationon uniform ordering will come in the next few weeks.

We will be offering a Learn to Play Lacrosse Session soon! This will be open to new players and parents who would like to learn more about the sport. More information will be coming out soon.


If your child is interested in playing more competitive lacrosse, we will be opening up tryouts for our U13 and U15 Select Teams next month. These teams have one practice a week and one game. Girls games are on Fridays and and Boys are either Friday or Saturday. You MUST play in the town lacrosse league in order to play for a Select Team. There is an additional cost for registration and uniforms as well. It is a great opportunity. Both Boys and Girls teams have made it to the Select playoffs each year and our U13 Girls team won the State Championship in 2018 and 2019.
