  • Offensive Language - Players will receive one warning from coaches or referees. The second offense will result in ejection from the game or practice. Two ejections during the season will result in removal from the program.
  • Fighting - Punches, take-downs, tackling, reckless swinging of the stick or any other aggressive attack on another player will result in an immediate ejection from the game or practice plus suspension from the SUBSEQUENT GAME. Two fighting ejections during the season will result in removal from the program.

Teams: Teams are assigned to distribute the talent pool equally. We will do our best to adjust rosters for convenience. Our teams will be small to maximize playing time. It is very important that you make every effort to attend the games. If you know you will be absent please let the coaches know as soon as possible so adjustments can be made. Per league rules - THERE WILL BE NO SHARING OF PLAYERS. Games will be played with only those listed on the team roster.

Games: Sunday afternoons anywhere from Noon to 5pm at the Blue Creek Rec Area (Whitehouse) or Woodland Park (Perrysburg) on alternating Sundays from April 14 thru June 2

Practice: Teams will generally practice 2 times per week usually Monday through Thursday from 6pm to 7:30pm. All practices will be held at the Blue Creek Rec Area. Optional Saturday scrimmages might be available. Players and Coaches using the games fields for practicing (without prior approval from the Youth Foundation) will be removed from the program!

Equipment: Mandatory for each practice and game the boys must wear a helmet, mouth guard, cup, gloves, shoulder pads, and elbow pads.

Start Times: Please be aware that we need to have the boys DRESSED and READY to play at the designated start times. A 6pm start time does not mean to show up at 6pm and then get dressed. Please have them ready to start play at the proper time!

Water bottles: Water is mandatory for all games and practices. Please try to use reusable water bottles(bottles with straws are best when wearing helmets). If you need to use disposable bottles please make sure your boys are disposing of them properly. Leaving them on the fields is not acceptable and will not be tolerated.

Coaches: We are desperately in need of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade parents to help coach. If we don’t get at least 6 head coach volunteers for next year, we will have to cancel those grade divisions. No lacrosse experience is necessary. For those interested, AWYLAX will reimburse the registration fees for the US Lacrosse National Convention.
