BOYS TEAM SPECIFICS

Contact-  Paul Truting, VP- Boys  paultruting@hotmail.com

The Simsbury Youth Lacrosse program focuses on skill development while having fun with age-appropriate levels of competition.  Boys are divided into 4 divisions- U8, U10, U12, & U14.  Boys are encouraged to join the program at any age.  We welcome beginners though the U14 level.

The season typically runs from late March (weather dependent) through mid-June each year.
Each team will participate in two jamboree/tournaments throughout the year.
Simsbury Youth Lacrosse encourages children to play multiple sports.  We understand that children have many interests and feel that they should have the opportunity to play other sports.  If possible, our coaches will work with coaches of other sports to avoid conflicts.  Please realize that this is not always possible.  As described below, with respect to our most competitive teams in the U12 & U14 divisions, Simsbury Youth Lacrosse does ask for a serious commitment.

U14

The U14 division does have tryouts.  All teams are travel and will play competitive schedules. 

The Division will include one A team that will compete is Connecticut Valley Youth Lacrosse's Founders League.  This team will generally travel more than the other teams and we ask that participants on this team to commit to lacrosse as their primary spring sport.  This does not mean that a participant cannot play another team sport.

The division will also have multiple B teams.  These teams will be balanced equally.  These teams will play in Connecticut Valley Youth Lacrosse league.
