2021 Registration is Open!!!

Allowing our children to return to play safely is our top priority!  We will be following all Return to Play guidelines ( from US Lacrosse as well as following the guidance and protocols set forth from our towns and schools.  The structure of our season will be fluid and we will adapt as necessary. Things will look and feel differently this year and it will require patience and understanding from parents and players as we accommodate changes to allow our children to continue to play lacrosse.

We understand that there is so much uncertainty and concern with youth sports this year.  To that end, we are handling registration in phases.  Here is a summary of the phases and total fees:

Instructional and 8U- $80

Includes insurance, team t-shirt, and equipment to be used for the season.

10U, 12U, 14U- $175 for the first child in the family, $150 for the second child, and $125 for the third and subsequent children.

These rates include US Lacrosse Insurance and a personalized uniform.


Phase 1 (currently open)

$30 (Instructional/8U)

$60 (U10, U12, U14)

This is a non-refundable deposit that secures your child’s place in the league and includes a team t-shirt (Instructional/U8) or a personalized uniform (U10, U12, U14).

In the event that this year’s season must be cancelled, or if you are no longer comfortable with your child participating, you will still receive your t-shirt or uniform to be used next year and will not incur any additional fees.  The exception of this will be 8th grade parents who would receive a refund in the event that the season is cancelled.

Phase 2 will open in March and the remaining balance will be due at that time.

Uniforms for 10U, 12U, and 14U have been redesigned and are included in this year’s registration fees! They are reversible and customized with your player's  name.  Please consider ordering the uniform large enough so that it will last your player for 2 years.
