2015 Spring Lacrosse Registration

Parents,

Online registration for the Stamford Lacrosse Association's 2015 Spring Lacrosse will open January 15th, on the SLA website (www.stamfordlacrosse.org).

We are starting the registration process a little later than most programs, as we realize that many families were still trying to catch a breather from winter sport registrations and the holidays. We hope this accommodation has been helpful.


 

  • 1st  & 2nd Grade House program will meet once a week, on Sundays, for a two hour session. After the first few practices of the season, these teams will break into a practice/game format. The first hour will consist of a practice and the second hour will involve game play. The games will be played in a 6v6/7v7 format on a shortened field. This program format has been successful in youth soccer model. This should allow reduce some of the conflicts that we see with children playing more than one sport. Players will be issued a jersey, which they will be able to keep.

 

  • 3rd & 4th Grade House program will practice twice a week. One practice will be conducted in a clinic format, with everyone working on the fundamental skills and drills together. The second practice of the week will have participants play will their respective teams. This division will play house league 7v7 games on a shortened field. Games are typically on Sunday afternoons. Towards the end of the season, we will look to enter the teams in a jamboree or schedule a game or two against neighboring town teams. Most neighboring programs operate a similar style program at this age division and it has proven successful. Word of mouth will help grow this division. Players will be issued a jersey that they will be able to keep.

 

  • 5th - 8th Grade program will compete on ability based travel teams. These teams will compete in the CONNY league against neighboring town programs. Teams will practice twice a week and play 1-2 games a week, usually on the weekends. Players will be issued a uniform (jersey and shorts/kilt), which they will be able keep at the end of the season. 

 

  • Coaching: We will be making adjustments to our coaching staff and providing additional training resources. We would like to increase the number of parents coaches. If you played HS and/or college lacrosse, we can use your help. Many of the lacrosse strategies are similar to basketball, so if you are looking to get involved and have never played, we can get you into a coaching clinic and prepare you to help as an assistant.

 

 

  • We are a grade based program. Participants must register for the program representing the school grade to which they are currently enrolled.

 

  • Practice days and schedules: We won't know specific practice days until early March. There are two reasons for this. Firstly, we use fields at Westhill HS and Stamford HS. The high school spring teams have priority use of the fields. Their schedules aren't confirmed until early March. Secondly, we need to wait until registration closes in order to get an idea of how many teams our program will be fielding. In early March, after coordinating with our coaching staff, we will distribute and post the practice schedules.


It is important for us to complete registration as soon as possible. We need enough time to permit fields, create schedules, secure additional coaches, if needed, and enough time to order uniforms. As a result, we have established the following deadlines for regular registration, after which a late fee will be applied:
 

 

  • 1st - 4th Grade Registration:     January 15th - February 15th   

 

  • 5th - 8th Grade Registration:     January 15th - February 15th    


**Late fees will be applied to registrations received after the regular registration deadline. Due to field constraints, our program has a limited number of roster spots at each division. If the roster spots are filled before the registration deadline, registrants will be placed on a wait list.**

We strongly encourage returning players in grades 5-8 to get some off-season practice in, to get the rust off of their stick skills. There are winter programs offered at Chelsea Piers (Stamford) and SoNo Field House (Norwalk).


We look forward to the 2015 season and your continued support. Please remember to register on the SLA website at www.stamfordlacrosse.org .
