2022 Program Information

2022 Marshwood Youth Lacrosse 

Program Information

Experience Required?-  There is no experience required to play lacrosse at any age level.  Some of the top professional lacrosse players did not begin playing lacrosse until they were teenagers!

Youth Program Teams-  MYL will field youth program teams for boys and girls grouped by gender and then grade pairings. We plan to field at least one team at each age group that will be paired together grades as follows: 1st and 2nd grades, 3rd and 4th, 5th and 6th.

Season- The lacrosse season runs from the mid-April to mid-June, with the possibility of indoor practices in February depending on space availability.

Practices-  MYL teams, pending weather related cancellations, are scheduled for 18 in-season practices.  Practices will mostly be conducted on a consistent day and time twice per week.  Practice schedules will be developed in late February. 

Games-  Teams will be scheduled for approximately 8-10 games.  They will play teams from both Maine and New Hampshire. 

Youth Program Cost- Program cost is $80. In addition all players must register with USA Lacrosse. Registration is $30 and is paid directly to USA Lacrosse. You will not be able to complete your MYL registration if your player’s expiration date for USL is earlier than 7/1/22.

 If our website does not automatically direct you there you can register by clicking here. https://membership.uslacrosse.org/  

Middle School Players- MYL will not field 7th/8th teams in 2022. These teams will be run through Marshwood Middle School. MYL will serve as the booster and funding entity for these teams. A player booster fee will be associated with middle school lacrosse participation.

Uniforms-  Game jerseys and shorts are required.  Practice pinnies are recommended.  Shooter shirts for under pads and jerseys are optional. Uniforms can be reused from previous seasons. Uniforms are an additional cost per item as noted in registration.

Program Payment Options-  Payment in full is expected at time of registration.  We understand this may be a strain for some families.  Please email   to discuss a payment plan, they are available on a case basis. Scholarships are also available.

Registration- Open 11/18/21-1/31/21. Please note that registration ends earlier than normal. Supply chain issues with uniforms are expected and our order will need to be placed much earlier than normal.

COVID-19- MYL will follow current state and USL guidelines regarding our programming.  Prior to any in-person interactions the MYL website will be updated and information will be given to players and parents. 

Equipment- All equipment must meet USA Lacrosse standards.  Those standards can be found at https://www.usalacrosse.com/sites/default/files/documents/Safety/USAL-equipment-guide-low.pdf

Girl players will be required to have a stick, mouth guard, goggles, and cleats.  Gloves and headgear are optional.

Boy players will be required to have a stick, mouth guard, helmet, shoulder pads, elbow pads, gloves, jock and cleats.  NOTE:  Requirements for shoulder pads have changed.  Effective January 1, 2022 all should pads must be NOCSAE ND 200 compliant.

Dick’s Sporting Goods and Play It Again Sports are two local options for lacrosse gear in our area.  As the season approaches, we plan to have a gear swap.  This year our stock is limited due to requirement changes.  Goalie equipment is provided to each team for use during the season.

Coaching & Board Member Volunteering- This program needs to thrive on/live by the motto “many hands make light work”.  MYL is a non-profit organization that only survives through significant fundraising efforts and through volunteers.  We are in definite need of coaching help in our girls’ program and volunteers for fundraising and lining fields.  Coaching experience is not required to volunteer.  We need more coaches for the program in order to pass on the knowledge now before our more experienced coach’s age out!  I am personally trying to streamline as many of the areas that we could use assistance in to help people in their ability to step up! 

Please email   with questions.  We plan to hold a few zoom meetings preseason to discuss equipment, logistics and all things MYL!
