These are the most commonly asked questions for Spring 2024 Registration/Tryout process.
This list will be updated periodically, but always feel free to email email@example.com with any questions you may have.
1. My child has never played lacrosse before. Do they have to try out?
ANSWER: We do have tryouts but only for the purpose of building teams appropriately. EYLA does not require players to tryout. All players will be placed appropriately on a team based on their ability and history with the sport of lacrosse. EYLA does not hold tryouts for grades K-2.
2. Does my player need to wear their 'gear' to tryouts?
ANSWER: Yes, for your child's safety all players must dress 'GAME READY' for tryouts and anytime when on the field.
