Boys Lacrosse Program Information

Lil Laxers (Pre-K to 1st Grade)

Designed for those who aren’t quite old enough for our Pockets Program (K-1) or those that would be in our pockets program but maybe just want to try out Lacrosse for the first time.  We use soft balls,  no pads/googles, just bring a stick, water bottle and have fun.  Details about when the clinics will be held is TBD, but expect only once/week from End of March-Mid June 2023.   

 

Pockets  (K-1st) 

  • Players learn the fundamentals of Lacrosse through non-competitive, instructional in-house play.  There are no goalies/refs at this age.  They will wear all the equipment that Tykers and above do.  There will be 2 practices during the week & 1 game on Saturday at a local field.   
  • The season usually starts in January/February with some indoor practices and outdoor practices/games  start Mid March and go through Mid June. 

Tykers (2nd-3rd grader inter-county league) 
3/4 (WMYLC 3rd and 4th graders)
5/6 (WMYLC 5th and 6th graders)
7/8 (WMYLC 7th and 8th graders) 

  • Focus is to expand on the fundamentals and add more advanced skills as they get older.
  • Tykers and 3/4 play on a reduced "modified" field, approximately 1/2 the size of a regulation field. 5/6 and 7/8 play on a full sized regulation field.  All have goalies/refs.
  • Tykers will play in an inter-county league against area LAX program teams. Depending on available players, we may have an advanced team(s) participate in the Maryland Youth Lacrosse Association (MYLA) and travel throughout Carroll, Baltimore, Harford, and parts of Howard Counties for games.   Or Western Maryland Youth Lacrosse Conference (WMYLC) and travel throughout Carroll, Frederick, Washington, Montgomery Counties for games.    
  • MYLA and WMYLC – have requirements that teams must be ranked A or B. Depending on the number of teams entered in each age group besides Tyker, we must try to adhere to their placement guidelines or teams will not be eligible for Playoffs (no playoffs in Tykers or Pockets). 
  • It is up to the Age Group Coordinator (AGC) and the Boys Commissioner to determine proper placement of teams after evaluations which occur in January.
  • The season usually starts in January/February with indoor practices.  Outdoor games and practices start in mid-March  and go through Mid June.  Teams may also participate in year-end tournaments based off the discretion of the AGC/ Commissioner and Coaching Availability.
  • Other opportunities to play such as an indoor league, pre-season tournaments etc. will be at the discretion of the AGC and Commissioner and Coaching Availability.
