Registration is open for the 2024 Marshwood Youth Lacrosse (MYL) season from November 28, 2023 through February 16, 2024.
The lacrosse season runs from mid-April to mid-June, with optional, weekly indoor skills sessions beginning after February vacation.
No experience is required to play lacrosse at any age level. Some of the top professional lacrosse players did not begin playing lacrosse until they were teenagers!
We are thrilled to offer preschool- and Kindergarten-aged children a chance to give lacrosse a try! Our PreK/K Program focuses on basic skills development, including stick handling, cradling and shooting, in a fun, no pressure environment. Sessions are held once a week (day/time TBD). Children may bring their own sticks, but MYL does have sticks available to use during the sessions as well. MYL will offer this program for FREE in 2024. T-shirts are required for participants and will be available for purchase when the uniform store opens in the Spring.
Youth Travel Teams
MYL fields youth teams for boys and girls. We plan to field at least one team per gender in these age groups: Grades 1 & 2, Grades 3 & 4, and Grades 5 & 6.
Program Fees: $80 paid to MYL at the time of registration.
Scholarships and/or payment plans are available. Please email email@example.com for details. Scholarship and payment plan arrangements are always confidential.
USA Lacrosse Membership: All players must be a current member of USA Lacrosse with an expiration date after 7/1/2024. You can register by visiting https://membership.uslacrosse.org/
Uniforms: Uniforms are an additional program cost. Game jerseys and shorts are required. Practice pinnies are recommended. Shooter shirts (normally worn under pads) are optional. Uniforms can be reused from previous seasons. An online uniform store will open in early Spring.
Practices: MYL teams practice at fields in either South Berwick or Eliot twice per week. Practice schedules will be developed in late February.
Games: Teams will play 8-10 games during the season. MYL plays teams from both Maine and New Hampshire.
Middle School Teams
Teams for 7th and 8th graders are run through Marshwood Middle School. MYL is the booster and funding entity for these teams. There is a player fee for middle school lacrosse participation.
All equipment must meet USA Lacrosse standards. Those standards can be found at https://www.usalacrosse.com/equipment.
Girls: Players are required to have a stick, mouth guard, goggles, and cleats. Gloves and headgear are optional.
Boys: Players are required to have a stick, mouth guard, helmet, shoulder pads, elbow pads, gloves, jock and cleats. NOTE: As of January 1, 2022, all shoulder pads must be NOCSAE ND 200 compliant.
Goalie equipment is provided to each team for use during the season.
Where to Buy: Dick’s Sporting Goods and Play It Again Sports are two local options for lacrosse gear. MYL had also partnered with StringKing to offer member-exclusive discounts on StringKing products. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request an invitation to access the StringKing discount.
Coaches and Volunteers
MYL is a non-profit organization that relies on fundraising and volunteers to provide our kids with a great playing experience. We live by the motto “many hands make light work.”
Coaches: Coaching experience is not required! We need more coaches for the program in order to pass on the knowledge before our more experienced coaches age out!
Volunteers: As the season gets underway, we will be looking for volunteers to help with activities, such as fundraising and field lining.
Please email email@example.com, and we will be happy to help!
