2020 TYLA Spring Recreational Lacrosse League
Welcome to TYLA spring lacrosse! Based on current registration levels, we will have 2 divisions for the 2020 season:
This is for our players in prekindergarten and kindergarten (Ages 4 & 5). Sessions of this division will be held each Sunday (excluding the weekend of Columbus Day) at 11 am. Players will rotate through 4-6 skill based stations finishing with short-sided games. The clinic division sessions are expected to last roughly 1 hour , and parents are expected to remain at the field as this is not a drop-off event at this age group. No equipment is required as it is entirely provided by the league.
Grade 1& 2:
This is for players in grades 1 & 2 who will be placed onto individual teams of 5-6 players. Once per week, all teams will practice in a skill-based session on Wednesday evenings from 5:30 – 6:30 pm. On Sunday afternoons at 12 pm, games will be held. While no contact is allowed in these games, due to the potential for inadvertent contact, players are required to utilize a protective mouthguard.
Wednesdays Grade 1 & 2 Practice Nights
