LACROSSE


2021 SPRING LACROSSE

ORYA lacrosse is committed to offering a community-based program open to kids ages 4-14.  Kids are welcome to join at any age regardless of previous experience!  The 7U program is skills and drills only for our youngest players.  While our 8U-14U have 1-2 practices a week with a game on the weekends.  Please remember that the registration deadlines are driven by league enrollment requirements so we ask that you sign up before March 1.  Right now, both SAYLL and NHYLA are planning on having regular season play.  

Informational SessionMembers of the AG and coaches will be available on a Zoom call to answer any of your questions about the season or lacrosse in general.  This will take place in February – time and date will be communicated soon!

Registration CostOne thing to note, with the uncertainty COVID-19 brings we will be collecting player fees in March when we know all the details of the season. The price below is the cost for regular season play.  Please sign up with the intention of playing as registration numbers directly affect practice field requirements, coach commitments, league enrollment and dues, as well as other things.

Come with sneakers and a stick (or ask for a stick and we can help you find one!) and you’re set to play!  This program is intended for 4-6 year olds.
