Hello Scarborough Youth Lacrosse Families!
I am pleased to announce that SYL registration for the Spring 2022 season is now LIVE.
The details are as follows:
Who: ALL K-8th boys and girls* (Open to all kids of any skill level - no previous experience required. Both new and old players encouraged!)
*New this year, there will also be a program for 7/8 grade girls!
When: The kick-off event is *tentatively* scheduled for Sunday April 10th (times and more details TBD according to age group).
Practice start date depends on field condition + weather after April 10th. Maine Youth Lacrosse scheduled games could start as soon as April 30th and could run through mid-June (Father's Day weekend).
K-2 will have ONE Wednesday practice + ONE intra-team game on Sundays
Grades 3-6 will typically have TWO weeknight practices and TWO games per weekend
Grades 7-8 will practice up to 3-4 times per week, have 1-2 games on weekends and ocassionally evenings under the lights
*Games for grades 3-8 are in Scarborough or require travel to local/regional towns. Coaches will set their practice days as soon as possible and contact all rostered players to let them know the schedule.
Where: The turf most likely will not be available. Locations may include the Wentworth field, Scarborough Middle School fields, Memorial Park, and/or Black Point Park. We are still waiting to hear on field availability and assignments will vary depending on age/team.
Cost: K-2 Girls and Boys - $80 team registration + $15 US Lax membership fee
Gr 3-6 Girls and Boys - $140 team registration + $30 US Lax membership fee
Gr 7-8 Girls and Boys - $160 team registration + $30 US Lax membership fee
*A limited registration window is required in order to place and receive uniforms on time. We are allowing a 30 day registration window. Anyone registering after March, 15th 2022 will be charged a $75 late fee. We appreciate your prompt registration.
*** IMPORTANT NOTE***: For insurance purposes SYL requires membership in U.S. Lacrosse. During the registration process you can obtain membership or renew your child's US LAX membership. Membership must be valid through 2022 season. In the past, you had to leave the registration site to register for this membership. With the new website, the membership will AUTOMATICALLY be added in and you will be charged when you check out. This feature simplifies the process a lot. On your receipt you will see a line item entitled "membership". That is the US LAX fee, NOT an additional fee that Scarborough Youth Lacrosse is charging at registration.
How to Register: Please head over to our new website for our new and improved registration process:
-Click on the red menu tab
-Scroll down to the line item that says "2022 Spring Season Player Registration"
Other Important Information:
New for 2022 Season The use of goalie chest protectors that meet the NOCSAE performance standard, ND200, is now mandatory in the USA Lacrosse boys’ and girls’ youth rules, the NFHS boys’ and girls’ high school rules, and the NCAA men’s and women’s rules. Beginning in 2022, boys’ and men's field players must also wear chest protection that meets the ND200 standard. ALL boys at the 3rd grade level and up will need a NOCSAE approved chest protector, or they will not be allowed to play this season. The Scarborough Youth LAX board will be checking to make sure all players have updated equipment before play begins. This is for the safety of all players.See USA Lacrosse for details Equipment | USA Lacrosse
