Experience Required?- 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!
NEW!!! In-House Programming- This season we will be offering in-house beginner lacrosse programming. This programming will be a skills based low commitment, low investment opportunity for preschool and Kindergarten aged children in our community to give lacrosse a try. The program will run on average once weekly on a consistent weekday and time. This program cost to MYL will be FREE for 2023. There will be costs associated with USA Lacrosse Registration, a program T-Shirt and likely equipment. This program will be offered during similar timeframes as the regular youth travel season. The primary schedule will occur from mid-April through mid-June. We are working on indoor skills session scheduling that will start after February vacation week. It has not been determined at what periodicity sessions will occur, likely, weekly or biweekly on Saturdays or Sundays until the start of the season.
Youth Travel 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 by grade as follows: 1st and 2nd grades, 3rd and 4th, 5th and 6th.
Youth Travel Program Cost- Program cost is $80. In addition all players must register with USA Lacrosse, the registration fee is paid directly to USA Lacrosse. You will not be able to complete your MYL registration if your player’s expiration date for USA Lacrosse is earlier than 7/1/22. You can register by visiting https://membership.uslacrosse.org/

Middle School Players - MYL will not field 7th/8th teams in 2023. 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.
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 coaches 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!
