New “Learn to Love Lacrosse!” Development Program

 

For the second time this spring, Wayland Youth Lacrosse will be offering a sticks-only, low-cost, development lacrosse program for both boys and girls called “Learn to Love Lacrosse!”.  The program will offer an opportunity to learn the basics of lacrosse and play the game in a supportive and fun environment.

 

“Learn to Love Lacrosse” is offered to all Kindergarten boys and girls.  It is also available to interested First Graders who have not played lacrosse before and may not be ready for the full town program offered to First and Second Graders.  It will be coached by WYL coaches and Wayland High School lacrosse players.

 

Weekly practices will be held for one hour on Saturday afternoons at the Wayland Middle School during the spring season from April through June.  Sessions will be held on small fields, there will be no contact, and we will be using softer lacrosse balls and tennis balls for instructional purposes.

 

More information will be coming soon but please spread the word!

 

Select Teams

 

We will again be offering boys and girls Select Team Programs for Grades 5/6 and 7/8 to provide additional opportunity for players to participate in a high-level developmental program against very competitive teams.  By participating in this program your son or daughter is acknowledging that lacrosse is his or her priority sport for the spring.  Players will be required to participate in the WYL Classic Program as a prerequisite for the Select Program.

 

  • Boys Select tryouts for Grades 5/6 and 7/8 are being held and rosters will be released soon
  • Girls Select tryouts for grades 5/6 and 7/8 will take place next March

 

Coaching and Volunteering

 

We are always looking for parents to help with the program – particularly with the younger grades.  If you have played lacrosse in high school or college and would be interested in coaching, please reach out and let us know.  We also need team managers and volunteers to help with various WYL related activities throughout the season.

 

New Players

 

Finally, it is never too late for your daughter, son, or one of their friends to start playing lacrosse.  Each year we continue to get new players, even in Grades 7 and 8.  Please encourage your kid’s friends to come out and play.  We have passionate coaches who are deeply interested in teaching both the on-field skills and off-field character lessons that are important to shape these young men and women. 

If you have any questions, please reach out to the WYL Commissioners:

 

  • Boys Commissioner: Mark Rosen, 
  • Girls Commissioner: Justin Shaberly, 

 

We look forward to a great season ahead!
