Message from the Coventry Youth Lacrosse Board of Directors

On behalf of the Coventry Youth Lacrosse Board of Directors, we would like to welcome you to the 2015 Spring Lacrosse Season. To all our returning players and coaches - thank you for your continued support, and to the newcomers – we’re glad to have you part of our organization!

 

Below are a few helpful hints to get ready to take the field in the coming weeks:

 

  • Our website is a great source of information about boys and girls lacrosse and our program. We are always updating the site so visit it frequently.
  • On the left side of the home page you can download guides to boys & girls lacrosse that have information about the sport, rules, equipment etc.
  • Youth lacrosse teams throughout Rhode Island are grouped BY GRADE for the purpose of preparing teammates for future high school play.
  • BOYS: Due to the physical contact and varying degrees of physical maturity, all boys will play within their grade grouping (1&2, 3&4, 5&6, 7&8). Exceptions to this rule must be submitted in writing (email) by the parent/guardian to the Executive Board of Directors.
  • GIRLS: ‘Playing up’ to fill rosters and team counts is a frequent practice however ‘playing down’ is prohibited.
  • Coventry Youth Lacrosse competes in Division II meaning there are no elite or “competitive level” teams. When there are multiple teams within a grade division, it is our intent to establish balanced teams by combining returning and new players. We will NEVER intentionally stack a Division II team for the sole purpose of winning.
  • Teams can expect to have 2 practices per week with all games on Saturdays.
  • You can find tons of videos and great information on www.uslacrosse.org

 

Stay tuned for more information as we get closer to the start of the season. Thank you again – we look forward to seeing you on the fields soon.
