To support and promote youth lacrosse in the towns of Groveland, Merrimac, and West Newbury Mass

My my My my
Spring 2022 Registration is NOW open!

Use this link to REGISTER for all programs:

Please let us know if you have any questions or troubles with your registration. Fees have not been raised for 2022, but we have implemented a $30 late fee if you register after December 15, 2021. We are still offering a sibling discount. Our league insurance fees have gone up. PYL does not profit at all from the insurance fees.

Little Laxers: $55
U9: $100
U11-U15: $190

Important things you might want to know:

1. Founders Girls Lacrosse League or FGLL (girls players) and Mass Bay Youth Lacrosse League or MBYLL(boys players) Registrations are Required for every PYL player except Little Laxers.
This is a separate insurance cost that is required by our respective leagues. MBYLL fees ($40 per player) will be paid directly to MBYLL through a link on our site that will take you directly to their site to pay and then kick you back to our site to finish the registration. FGLL fees ($35 per player) will be paid with your PYL registration fee and then PYL will bulk pay them to FGLL before the season. You will need to renew these insurance fees yearly. 

2. Uniform costs will be separate.  Uniforms are used for 2 seasons. We will be ordering new uniforms for the 2022 season. More information on uniform ordering will come in the next few weeks. 

3. Practices will begin indoors on Tuesdays at The Bagnall School in Groveland (for u9 and U11 only beginning 3/15) and Wednesdays at Phanzone in Hampstead, NH (U13/15) beginning 3/2. Time and Days will be communicated soon. Outdoor practices will begin as soon as the weather and fields allow, and will be 2 days - Tuesday, Thursday, or Friday at Pipe Stave or the Page School for U9-U15. 

4. Games are played on Sundays from the beginning of April to the middle of June for 8 weeks. No games on Easter Sunday or Memorial Day Weekend. 

5. Jamboree - both Boys and Girls teams will be participating in a Jamboree at the end of the season. This is a tournament style day and it is at no cost to you. We highly encourage all players to be available for these.

Boys U13 (5/6) & U15 (7/8) is June 11-12
Boys U9 (1/2) & U11 (3/4) is June 18-19

Girls – all ages is May 22


Little Laxers is our program for Pre-K and K grade. It's a great way to ease into the sport in a fun, relaxing setting. Sessions are one hour per week. They will be held Sunday mornings for 8 weeks beginning 4/10.


If your child is interested in playing more competitive lacrosse, we will be holding tryouts for our U13 (5/6) and U15 (7/8) Boys & Girls Select Teams next month. These teams have one extra practice a week and one additional game. Girls games are on Friday nights 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 for any child who wants to play more lacrosse.

Boys SELECT tryouts will be held on Tuesday, December 14th
Location: Phanzone Indoor Sports in Hampstead, NH.
Times: 6-7:30 pm for grades 5/6 and 7:30-9 pm for grades 7/8

Girls SELECT tryouts will be held on Tuesday, December 21st

Immediate board need:
Assistant Boy’s Director

This position would shadow the Boy’s Director, attend monthly PYL board meetings from August to June each year, participate on the board to help guide the program and make decisions to ensure the success of PYL. This position would also attend MBYLL League meetings. It is an important position, but not a huge time requirement. A few hours a week during the season and some time here and there pre and post-season is all it takes.

Coaching Needs for 2022:

We are looking for two coaches for Boys U11 (3/4 grade). Lacrosse experience is appreciated, but not required. Coaching or teaching experience is appreciated.
