Spring 2018 Registration Closes March 12th

Registration for the Spring 2018 season is still open!!  Registration will close on March 12th.  Register now for the spring 2018 season.  Come learn and play lacrosse with the most experienced recreational lacrosse provider in the area.  We have programs for boys and girls of all ages (K-8) and experience levels.
There are several changes in the programs offered for 2018 as well as the registration and uniform ordering processes.  Please check out the Boys and Girls Program pages and the SLA Overview page for more information.  We think the new program alignment will enhance our Association and allow for greater participation for players of all skill levels for all levels of competition.
New for 2018, SLA will offer Local Recreation lacrosse at all age levels where player participation numbers support the offering.  Our Local Recreation program consists of fundamental instruction, small-sided practices and local games.  At younger age groups, small-sided instruction and play will allow for greater player enjoyment and skill development with more individualized instruction and greater participation.  At older age groups, the local rec option provides full-sided instruction and play and prepares players for participation in the sport at higher levels of schooling and competition. 
The local recreation divison season begins in March with up to two practices per week and continues through May with weekend games in Stafford (and possibly Spotsylvania) County.
For a broader exposure to lacrosse as well as greater levels of competition, SLA also participates in the Northern Virginia Youth Lacrosse League (NVYLL).  The NVYLL is a group of 24 recreation associations throughout northern Virginia (from Spotsylvania County to Loudoun County) that band together to offer youth lacrosse at multiple skill levels.  Participation in the NVYLL levels of play consists of up to three practices a week, an 8-game regular season and a playoff experience.  The NVYLL season begins in February with skills assessments and continues through early June.  SLA may participate in NVYLL "A" and "B" levels, with the number of teams determined by player registration and preference.
NVYLL team assessments start on Saturday, February 10th and continue on February 17th and 24thThis division closes to new registrations on February 9th.  If you are an experienced player looking to challenge yourself against teams from across northern Virginia, sign up and come to the assessments this month to be placed on a team.
Reach out to the Boys or Girls Program Commissioners at with questions.
Sticks Up!
