2020 Spring Season

REGISTER TODAY FOR SPRING! Registration deadline is February 16


Uniform details - Deadline to order for spring is February 16.


BYL is open for players from grades 1-8. 


Our spring 2020 program consists of four team levels: 


Minis (1st and 2nd grades)

Our Minis program introduces the game to our youngest players. The main emphasis is to develop basic lacrosse skills and their understanding and interest in the sport.

Juniors (3rd & 4 th grades), Minors (5th & 6 th grades) and Majors (7th & 8 th grades)

New players in these levels focus on learning the fundamentals and basic strategies of the game. Experienced players focus on refining their lacrosse skills and deepening their understanding of the game. We welcome players of all abilities and experience at any team level. 

Team formation

  • Minis: Players are evenly divided across teams.
  • Juniors, Minors, Majors: Teams are formed based on school grade and experience.
  • Our goal is to place every player at the level best suited to his experience and ability. 
  • Please note that we cannot guarantee that any player will be placed on the same team from year to year nor grouped on the same team with his friends.
  • All BYL teams are coached by parent volunteers (many of them with lacrosse experience) who are assisted by third-party professional coaches and the BHS lacrosse coach.

Practices  

  • Practices to be held on Monday and Wednesday at Ron Beese Park.
  • Practices will kick off the last week of March.  Some coaches may start optional practices before that date.

  • Team schedules will be disseminated via Team Snap once teams are formed.
