February 2018 Updates
 
The spring season is just around the corner and we will begin indoor practices before you know it. Now is a great time to line up your training so you are ready for the season. The New England Lacrosse Convention is a great opportunity to close out several of the in-person requirements.  (Please scroll to the bottom of this page for more information about the convention.)
 
If you are a LYL Girls coach, we have registered you for the convention.  Please email  if you did not receive an e-mail letting you know this. More info on the NE Lax Convention below.  Having trained coaches makes a big difference for the players and the program.  "Only 5% of kids who play for a trained coach quit the next year vs. 26% who play for an untrained coach “ - Projectplay.us
