GD Youth Lacrosse registration for the 2015 spring season is now open!
We expect heavy registration volume as our program has grown dramatically. Logistical considerations require us to impose minimum/maximum roster sizes for each team.Thus, our ability to add teams to meet demand is limited.In the event player demand exceeds our available teams, we may be forced to establish a waitlist. Therefore, we encourage you to register as soon as possible to ensure a spot on a team. If waitlists are needed at any age level, we encourage you to add your player's name to the wait list so we can assess whether there is sufficient demand to add another team while adhering our min/max roster guidelines.
The following presents our best guess for the likely number of teams at each age level, though the ultimate number of teams is dependent on actual registration numbers:
Girls’ U13 and U15 – at each of these age levels, we anticipate a minimum of 1 team comprised of a maximum roster size of 23 players. If 34 or more total players register at a given age level, our minimum roster size guidelines would enable us to consider opening a 2nd team at that age level, a scenario which we would be excited to accommodate if registration demand is sufficient.
Girls’ U11 – We anticipate having 1 team with maximum roster size of 15 and are hopeful registration demand will be sufficient to allow us to field at least 2 teams while adhering to our minimum roster size guidelines.
Girls’ U9 – We anticipate having 1 team with maximum roster size of 18.
Boys U15 – we anticipate 2 teams at the recreational level with a maximum roster size of 22 players each. It is not likely we will have sufficient player demand to accommodate a 3rd team at the recreational level for this age group.
Boys U13 – we anticipate up to 2 teams with maximum roster size of 23 at this level. However, if some players from last year decide not to return and/or new players don’t register at this level, we might be tight in meeting the minimum roster size to field 2 teams, therefore a waitlist will be created once we reach the 1st 23 players. So please spread the word and encourage returning and brand new 5th and 6th grade boys to register!
Boys U11 – We anticipate having at least 3 teams with maximum roster size of 14, and a good chance of being able to field a 4th team and meet our minimum roster size guidelines if registration at this level is robust.
Boys U9 – We anticipate having at least 1 team with a maximum roster size of 16, and are hopeful registration demand will be sufficient to allow us to field at least 2 teams while adhering to our minimum roster size guidelines.
Volunteering -- GD Youth Lacrosse is an all-volunteer organization. We need parents’ support to help us provide an enjoyable experience for the kids. Coaching lacrosse requires no playing experience and we provide training for those interested in becoming either an assistant or head coach. You just have to want to learn and teach one of the best games created.
We also have some non-coaching volunteer needs, most notably that of Equipment Manager. If you are interested in discussing any of these volunteer opportunities or would like more information, please email
We look forward to another great lacrosse season this coming spring!
If a family registers 4 or more children with GDYLL in the MBGLL, PYLL and/or the MYSLL programs, the registration fees for the 4th and all subsequent children will be waived. This will not include Stick League, Tournament teams or any uniform and equipment fees. Given that the registration fees vary for these programs, the fee waived will be the more expensive of the four registrations. For example, if three children are registered in the MBGYLL or PYLL programs and the fourth child makes a MYSLL team, the family will not be charged for the MYSLL program fee (the more expensive fee).
This will involve a refund process as we won’t know what program your children will be participating in until after the try-outs for the MYSLL teams.
GDYLL has implemented the following refund policy. If you are going to request a refund, please read the information below.
Refund requests prior to the start of our season, which commences with indoor training in late February (2/24/2013), will be subject to a $30 processing fee. Any refund request received after the start of indoor training will NOT be honored.
Refunds will only be processed at the end of each month up until 2/24/13.
