2021 LYL Rebels information

 

Hello friends, family and players of the LYL Rebels. 

What a year 2020 has been.  As crazy as it has been, we have to plan on having a 2021 classic and select lacrosse season.  I have been hearing good news as far as a re-classification of lacrosse by the NCAA and NFHS. They have both reclassified lacrosse as a moderate risk sport from high risk. This is actually good news for the entire lacrosse community. 

During this past year it seems Girls lacrosse definitely figured it out better than the Boys lacrosse side.  I'm sure the differences within the way the game is played was a major contributing factor along with interpretation of the rules. 

More good news is that I witnessed lacrosse on the Boys side being played in other states with almost no Covid problems. Hopefully this will transition to the powers-that-be in the state of Massachusetts.  Bordering states, namely NH and Conn played lacrosse(Boys) with seemingly no issues, but tighter restrictions on parents/spectators to prevent the spread. Massachusetts did allow Girls to play lacrosse and it worked out better than anyone expected. 

So we plan on putting 2020 in the rear view mirror and hopefully never looking back.  The league did suffer financial losses, but we are still here.  This is why in the past we have pushed for tax-deductible donations, calendar sales, apparel sales and an overall general help-out attitude of generosity given so we can survive when times are not so prosperous.  We were able to refund the entire registration for those that asked. We allowed others to waive the refund and push their registration fee to 2021.  Some towns could not achieve the total refund, but we did.  Either way it was a long process and we thank you for your patience.  

The league will begin registration very soon for the 2021 season. Some are already signed up from last year and we have the list.  Each player will have to purchase their field insurance through MBYLL and US Lacrosse(MBGLL), that will not change.  Just like last year, we cannot refund the price ($30-$40) as we have nothing to do with either of them financially, but you will absolutely need insurance to participate. I am pretty confident that we will be playing in 2021, fingers crossed. 

Lastly, we have lost a couple coaches and a key Board Member in Laura Pompei. I cannot fully explain to everyone how easy she made my job as President.  It was an absolute pleasure to work aside of her and she will be missed. Derek Hersey will step in as girls director. He is very capable of continuing the great work and taking care of everyone involved on the MBGLL(Girls) side.  Cean Comley will head the MBYLL(Boys) side for LYL. We are extremely grateful he stepped up last year and filled the shoes of Jeff Dallaire.  Parents/Players should be excited that we have individuals willing to help out and make everyones experience better.  Tons of work behind the curtain happens for a season to begin and continue year after year.  I can never thank all the volunteers enough.  2021 will be no exception, we will need more volunteers in certain areas, so please think about helping out.  Please let us know if you can help out in some type of capacity and we will find a volunteer job for you. 

Thank you
