Registration Open -- Details for Boys Programs

To our Boys Youth Lacrosse Families,

Welcome to the 2016 lacrosse season - REGISTRATION has RE-OPENED -- with late fee of $50 for Grades 3-8

Please visit our website, www.wellesleylacrosse.org, to register for our Spring 2016 season!  Boys in grades 1st -8th who reside in Wellesley or attend a school in Wellesley are eligible to play in our town youth lacrosse program.  The 1st and 2nd grade program is an in-town program and does not involve travel, while the 3rd – 8th grade programs travel and compete against other towns.

We have included an overview of the program details in this letter.  Our goal is to provide you with enough information about the season so you are able to register with some basic questions answered.  Further details can also be found on our website, www.wellesleylacrosse.org.  Please get in the habit of checking the website, as all updates and information will be kept current on the site.

Registration: Initial Registration will be open from October 23rd  –  Jan. 3.

We have moved our registration earlier to have a more accurate team count for our league.  Please register within this time frame to be guaranteed a team placement as well as assist us in the overall team counts and uniform ordering.  After January 3rd, there will be a $50 late fee assessed for player registrations in grades 3-8 and, if an age group is full players will be placed on a wait list for a spot on a team next spring.  Registration will remain open for all players in grades 1 and 2 right up to the start of the spring season, with no deadline to register.   

Tryouts for 5th – 8th grade boys:  We will be holding tryouts next month on Monday, November 9th and Monday, November 16th for players in grade 5-8 who wish to be considered for placement on our advanced level (“A”) teams in grades 5-8 next spring.  All players in grades 5-8 who register for our program will be placed on a team – only those players wishing to be considered for a spot on the “A” team in their respective grades need to participate in tryouts.  In order to participate in tryouts players must:

  1. be fully registered for our spring program
  2. be registered for tryouts by Friday, November 6th (a separate tryout registration / fee is listed in our registration system)

All families in grades 5-8 should have received an email last week about tryouts.  More detailed information about the tryout process and time schedule for each grade will be out in the next 2 weeks. 

Season Schedule Overview:  Players in grades 3-8 will participate in eight weekends of games, running from the beginning of April through the 2nd or 3rd week of June.  The exact schedule will be published closer to the start of the season – there are no games over Easter weekend and no games the first weekend of the public school vacation week in April. 

 

Practices / Games:  

1st/2nd – play once a week on Saturdays; they do not travel

3rd – 5th grade practice two nights/week and play games on Sundays; there is no blocked time for each age group so the times will vary.

6th – 8th grade practice two nights/week and play games on Saturdays; there is no blocked time for each age group so times will vary.

All 8th graders have an additional game on Friday nights. 

Practices: Boys in grades 3-8 practice two nights/week on a combination of Monday – Thursday nights.   We do not have a finalized practice schedule yet for spring 2016.  If the weather cooperates, we will try to get some preseason practices organized.  

Uniforms:  As we did last year, all players will be issued a new uniform at the start of the season and the cost is included in the registration fee.  Players in grades 1st /2nd  will receive a pinnie for wear during their weekly practice clinics.  Players in grades 3-8 will be issued game shorts and a single reversible pinnie that will be used for both games and practices.

Equipment/Apparel:

Boys need to have the following equipment to play:  stick, helmet, shoulder pads, elbow pads, gloves, mouth guard, and cup. 

For those interested in showing their Wellesley Raider pride, we will offer three web stores during the year to purchase additional optional WYLC apparel and clothing!  All families will receive an email with the information when the stores are open. 

Coordinators:  There will be a grade level coordinator for each grade group.  Their role is to manage team assignments, coaches, equipment and uniform distribution for the age group and work closely with WYLC to ensure a positive and smoothly run season.  Once you get a team placement, your coach will be your primary contact, but the grade level coordinators are available to help as well.  We will update you with coordinator information as we get closer to the start of the season. 

Coaches, Assistant Coaches, and Team Managers:  We are always looking for volunteers to help us!  We have approximately 400 boys playing lacrosse and volunteers make the program run.  If you are interested, please contact us at wellesleylacrosse@gmail.com to see how you can help.  There is an opportunity to sign up as a coach / volunteer when you register your son. 

Website:  We will provide updated information as it becomes available on the website.  Please refer to the website for any questions that you may have about the season.  General email questions may be directed to our email address, wellesleylacrosse@gmail.com.

The Boys Program Director is Matt Fantasia.  He will provide oversight of all the age groups, and will work closely with the coordinators to ensure the season is a fun and positive learning experience.  We want all the boys to leave this season wanting to play more lacrosse!

We are excited about the 2016 Spring Season and lots of great lacrosse; we look forward to seeing you out on the fields this spring!
