WYSC's Competitive Lacrosse Program Offers Player Competition Against Top Regional Teams 

 

Over the past spring’s recreational lacrosse season, Warrenton Youth Sports Club's has been a successful place for players new and experienced to play local teams in a relaxed, competitive environment that one would expect in a recreational program. We have some exceptional lacrosse players in the area who want a more advanced level of play/competition and WYSC’s Next Level Lax Competitive Program will offer this amazing outlet for both boys and girls teams to compete with other US Lacrosse teams. As the WYSC travel program grows, with the introduction of professional coaches/trainers, and with our success with lacrosse we hope to add additional teams at other age groups and grades.

 

 

Competitive Program Tryouts Held Each Fall

 

Regardless of your current playing experience or team/club affiliation, we offer boys and girls from 5th – 8th grade/ages 11-14 and encourage all players who are interested in competing at a higher level to attend the tryouts.

 

How to Register a Player for WYSC’s Competitive Program

 

Once a player has been invited to participate on a team (after mandatory try-outs), all players must complete WYSC's online registration. Invitations to register will be sent out after the second try-out date.

 

Practices

 

Each team will have an hour and a half practice once a week on Monday evening at Athey Field, Warrenton, 5:30pm – 7:00pm. We hope to add an extra day of conditioning for the players each week. A practice jersey is required for all practices. 

Note: Practice days / times may change.

 

Uniforms

 

 If a returning WYSC Lacrosse player – please note your uniform number on registration.  If new to WYSC Lacrosse, player will purchase a uniform during registration.
