Welcome to the Lexington Youth Lacrosse Boys Program!
The LYL Boys Program is dedicated to introducing, teaching, and expanding youth lacrosse in Lexington and neighboring communities.
We believe that lacrosse, among all the sports options available to your son, provides a unique and exciting combination of individual athleticism (speed, endurance, hand-eye coordination), teamwork, and on-the-fly, creative problem solving, and we strive to bring these experiences to your son!
We have developed a comprehensive curriculum that is fun, competitive, and instructional, and is intended to teach age-appropriate skills in an integrated manner that builds across each youth age level and will prepare the players to play at the high school and college level.
The Boys Program comprises 4 age levels that are determined by school grade in the year of competition: Classic Pre-K - 2 (Pre-K, Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grade), Classic 3/4 (3rd and 4th), Classic 5/6 (5th and 6th), and Classic 7/8 (7th and 8th).
Classic Pre-K - 2 (Kindergarten, 1st & 2nd grade)
The Classic Pre-K - 2 program runs from early April through mid-June and consists of ten Sunday afternoon practices (no session Easter or Memorial Day weekends). The focus for the Classic K-2 is having FUN and learning the basic lacrosse skills through childhood games like Sharks & Minnows, Jedi & Stormtroopers, Capture the Flag, Hungry Hungry Hippo, etc! But we also play games! Our Grade 1/2 players have a full in-house league, and each year we try to set up some additional games with other towns. All players are required to be a member of the Mass Bay Youth Lacrosse League (MBYLL membership fees may apply)

Classic 3/4 (3rd & 4th grade), Classic 5/6 (5th & 6th grade), Classic 7/8 (7th & 8th grade)
The Classic program starts with Pre-Season indoor practices (late February-late March) and then transitions into a Regular Season that runs from late March through mid-June. Pre-season is composed of one indoor practice per week on Sunday afternoon (pending field availability). During the regular season, there are two practices in Lexington during the week (usually 5:30-7pm on Monday, Wednesday, or Friday pending field availability) and one game per week on Sunday in Lexington or nearby towns. Uniforms are included with registration. We will start a wait list for the Classic 7/8 on 1/1/2020 and for the Classic 3/4 & 5/6 on 1/30/2020. All players are required to be a member of Mass Bay Youth Lacrosse League (MBYLL membership fees may apply)

Out of respect for other players and all of our volunteer coaches, as well as for safety reasons, players are expected to attend the majority of practices and games. The occasional missed lacrosse practice to attend a game in another sport is understandable, but we hope such absences will be minimized.
Participation in all boys LYL programs requires full lacrosse equipment. Click here to access our 'Boys Equipment' page for more details.
