Our team rosters are set and will be posted very soon, no player movement will be allowed. Jim Philbin (the Boys Director) and the Head Coaches have gone over the lists and balanced out the rosters as they feel best.
Remember we are here to teach the kids the game of Lacrosse, develop them as team players and some times that means playing for different coaching staffs and working with new / other teammates.
For the next 2 upcoming Clinics at the Clark YMCA we will be hosting select tryouts. I will send an email to the U13 and U15 players with details, pricing, and commitment information.
Select tryouts will be Tuesday March 11th and Saturday March 15th.
Please only kid’s trying out for the Select Teams should attend these two clinics.
Larry Cordio has secured some Lacrosse bags which will be sold at cost for $85.00 each. They are pictured above.
Thank you and let's hope this snow melts soon.
You’re Board of Directors

Welcome to Leominster Youth Lacrosse
This is a quick note to talk about the two leagues, Classic and Select, which Leominster Youth Lacrosse (LYL) will be participating in this spring. Both leagues are operated by Massachusetts Bay Youth Lacrosse League (MBYLL) and the Select League is quite a bit more competitive than the Classic. We will have multiple teams at each level in the Classic league, and we will have one team from each level in the Select League.
The Classic League is about player development. As such, MBYLL expects that each town will develop teams of equal talent to participate in the Classic program. It is our expectation that the sole focus of the coaches at the Classic level is to develop your children into better lacrosse players, and to deliver the many positive lessons that are taught by engaging in youth sports. Players at this level will be encouraged to push their comfort level, make mistakes, and learn from those mistakes as they develop their skills. The coaches work on making this a safe and comfortable environment to grow as a player.
The Select League is a very competitive program that MBYLL has developed for players that have a true interest in playing lacrosse at a high level. Although this level is also about player development, there is a greater focus on wins and losses. This program is highly competitive, wins and losses are tracked, teams are ranked, and there is a championship playoff format at the end of the season. LYL will field one team at the U15 level and one team at the U13 level at the Select level. There will be a competitive tryout at each age group.
We also expect that those players trying out for the Select programs will be committed to lacrosse as their primary spring sport. The Select players must make it to all the Classic program commitments in addition to the extra Select practice and game. You must participate in your Classic game the prior Sunday to be eligible to play in your select game the following weekend.
We will be holding the tryouts in order to select 15 full time players and up to 4 alternate players at both the U15 and U13 levels. Teams will be picked by a selection committee made up of High School Coaches and Executive Board Members of LYL. An additional $5.00 tryout fee will be charged for each session. Tryouts will be held at the Clark YMCA, Tuesday March 11th from 6pm to 7pm, and again on Saturday March 15th from 4pm to 6pm. The cost for the season will be $190.00 per player. This fee will cover the costs associated with all home games at Doyle field, and the new Select uniform shirts.
