Tryouts/Assessments

Assessments for CYA Boys Lacrosse Spring 2018 Teams will be held at Chantilly High School (4201 Stringfellow Rd, Chantilly, VA 20151). This is an outdoor facility so players will need to dress appropriately. CYA Coaches and Assistant Coaches will assess players' skills and abilities based on their performance in set drills and game situations. Given this event will ultimately determine the placement of your player on a Spring squad we strongly encourage players attend as many sessions as possible, they are essentially pre-season practices.

6U Program

Spring 2018 will be the fourth season our CYA Boys Program will be fielding squads for our young laxers. The objective of the program is to provide young players with an opportunity to learn the wonderful game of lacrosse under the watchful eye of experienced coaches.

Our weekly 6U sessions will consist of skills instruction and mini-games, with intrasquad scrimmages where the boys can demonstrate all they've learned.

 

10U Program:  Full and Modified Fields

Spring 2018 will be the first season of our CYA 10U Modified Field squad. The Full Field program will provide those players within CYA Boys Lacrosse who are still 10U by age but possess the skill, experience, and desire to seek success in the full field game. Unlike our 8U Modified Field, NVYLL will track CYA 10U win/loss record and score, and lead to placement in the Spring 2018 NVYLL tournament.  Placement on the CYA 10U Boys squad will be determined based on Spring evaluations (see below).  We will also have a 10U Modified field program using a 7v7 format on a smaller field, with the intention of getting each player more touches and therefore more experience.
 

"A" Team Policy

CYA Boys Lacrosse "A" Teams represent the most skilled and competitive players within each age bracket. In consideration of teammates, any player that does not play lacrosse as their primary spring sport might not qualify for an "A" team, regardless of the results of their player assessment.  If a player must frequently miss practices and/or games due to participation in another sport or activity, CYA Lacrosse reserves the right to place that player on a different team to free a spot on the "A" team for a player that can fully participate.

 

Practices

CYA Boys Lacrosse teams will practice 2-3 times a week at local fields once teams are formed in mid-February throughout the season based on facility availability and coaches schedules.

 

Equipment

Each player needs a helmet, shoulder pads, elbow pads, gloves, stick, mouthpiece and cleats.  An athletic supporter is also highly recommended.  You may rent the helmet, shoulder pads, elbow pads, and gloves for the season based on the prices above. This can be a cost effective to evaluate the game, and may keep you from buying new equipment as your son grows out of current.  A $200 deposit check is required to rent equipment, this check is not cashed and returned to you once the equipment is returned at the end of the season.  

You must provide the stick, mouthpiece and cleats. CYA has sticks for sale that are appropriate for beginners at a very reasonable cost. You can also purchase sticks at local sporting goods stores or from specialty lacrosse stores, or even online.  Goalie equipment is provided by CYA.
