Patriot Lacrosse Boys Spring '17 Registration Policies

Boys U9 is on a waitlist

Patriot Lacrosse is opening registration to form teams for the Colorado Youth Lacrosse Association (CYLA) 2017 spring season. Practices will begin around the first week of March.  Practice dates and times will be determined by the coaches.   As in years past, each team will participate in the SOCO kickoff held on March 19th at the El Pomar Complex. The Colorado Youth Lacrosse Association (CYLA) season will begin on April 8th and run through May 21st.  Games will be played on Saturdays and some Sundays at outdoor fields throughout Colorado, which may include travel to Denver, Fort Collins and Boulder.


U7 thru U9 will play Short-sided games in a 7v7 format; Instead of playing on a regulation sized lacrosse field, they will play side to side on a regulation sized field with a width determined by the restraining box and end line.


Rules of Play:

CYLA’s rules for play are primarily based on the 2016 US Lacrosse Rules for Boys Youth Lacrosse which can be found "here".

Formation of Teams:

The Patriot Lacrosse Club mission is to teach youth athletes the life lessons of skills development, teamwork, safe play, and sportsmanship in both a recreational and developmental environment along with a competitive environment that prepares these young athletes for high school level competition.  With that said, Patriot Lacrosse strives to form a competitive (Red/White) team and a beginner (Blue) team in each division.  Due to the size of the Patriot Lacrosse, two teams at each age group may not always be possible.  Competitive teams will be capped at 18 players. Patriot Lacrosse will register teams in the following divisions: U7/U9, U11, U13, U15. 


Competitive Teams: 

Tryouts for the competitive teams in the U11, U13 and U15 divisions will be held at the end of January.  The level of play for these teams will be determined after tryouts are completed and based on the evaluation results. There will be a tryout cost of $25 nonrefundable. Colorado Blue Label Lacrosse University will be providing individuals for the selection process.   No player will be placed on an upper level team without trying out.  All competitive teams will not exceed more than 18 players. If your player is not interested in trying out for the more competitive team within his age division, no tryout is necessary.  He will be automatically assigned to the “B” team of that age division.


EVEN aged Teams:

Patriot Lacrosse will evaluate each division to see if U8, U10 and U12 teams can be formed.  If EVEN aged teams are formed, the level of play will be determined by the Head Coach by the CYLA team/level registration deadline.  If EVEN aged teams cannot be formed, divisions will be evaluated to see if skills evaluation is needed in a division to form multiple teams.  One team in each Odd aged division will be designated as BLUE.  The third team will be designated after the skills evaluation is performed.


Wait Listing:

Following CYLA/US Lacrosse recommendations, Patriot Lacrosse team sizes will be capped at 25.  Competitive teams will be capped at 18.  When the registration numbers in a division hit 43 players, all additional players will be “wait-listed” until a minimum of 13 players are registered.  Wait-listed players not added to a team will be given a refund on their registration fee.  If possible, Patriot Lacrosse will coordinate with the Ranger Lacrosse Club to combine wait-listed players into a combined club team.
