Welcome to the 2024 Season
Dates To Get On the Calendar
If you are new to lacrosse coaching and would like to ask some questions please feel free to contact Courtney Benevides at email@example.com girls, or Chip Caswell at firstname.lastname@example.org for boys or Dorine Caswell at email@example.com.
Here we will post dates to put on your calendars in preparation for the 2024 season. The Board has been working to prepare for the upcoming season and we wanted to give you an update on where we are with preparations.
We have to commit teams to NHYLA by March 1 as to how many teams we will field and we will only allow late registrations to those teams who NEED more players.
The league has changed from age to grade in deciding eligibility plus the division language has changed. The new look is U15 is now 14U = 7th & 8th graders, U13 is now 12U = 5th & 6th graders, 10U = 3rd & 4th graders, and 8U = K-2nd graders. We will field boys and girls 8U, 10U, 12U, & 14U teams in NHYLA.
NHYLA has Released the Spring 2024 Lacrosse Season:
OPENING DAY: Sunday April 7th Opening Day
Games are: 4/7, 4/14, 4/21, 4/28, 5/5, 5/12
Off Memorial Day Weekend - North/South Games in Laconia

June 8/9 is the NHYLA Festival
Coach certification continues to be a requirement for NHYLA coaches to be on the sidelines. If you have not become a US Lacrosse certified Level 1 coach you should begin that process now. To register go to uslacrosse.org, click on Participants then Coaching Education Program and follow directions from there. The process includes an online course followed by an on-site course. You will also need to become a member of US Lacrosse to begin the process. The final step will be to successfully complete the background check and the Safe Sport online course. Exeter Youth Lacrosse will reimburse you for any expenses that you incur with your US Lacrosse course work (USL membership, courses, and background check).
There will be an annual Rules Interpretation meeting TBA. This will be held at TBD. We will have official’s trainers (men’s and women’s) on site to update the new rule changes and to review Personal and Technical fouls. This is for the both the boys and girls rules updates. By NHYLA rules all coaches must attend a Rules Interpretation training prior to the beginning of each season.
Finally, we would once again like to thank you for stepping up to help us make this past 2023 season a great time for the children in our care. We are looking forward to Spring 2024!
