A couple FALL BALL / IMPORTANT updates:

  1. Monday / Wednesday Fall Ball (6/7/8th Grades) - We are MOVING these sessions to Muraco School.  Also, these sessions will run 3:45-5PM.  We are making this move so we have more space and it is a better place for live shooting (without risking property damage - haha).  These are big(ger) boys and we can utilize a full lacrosse field at Muraco.  Even with the HS'er at Muraco it is more space and will be a better experience.  Plus, the boys will have an opportunity to get to know our HS players and other program coaches.
    • This does not affect the 4th and 5th graders.  They are still at Ambrose at 4PM.
  2. House League:   We kick off the Fall house league season on Sunday September 27th at the Skillings Lax Shed.  We are selling gently used gear sets for $50.  Checks please (cash or Venmo OK too).
    • HL practices begin Friday, October 2nd at Skillings turf 5:30pm-6:45pm. Come dressed and ready to be on the field at 5:30. 
    • HL Sunday Games begin on Sunday, October 4th on Manchester Turf 9:30am-10:30am. Come dressed and ready to play by 9:30am.

WINCHESTER YOUTH LACROSSE IS BACK!!!

PROGRAM 1 

The House League.  For the first time, we will be offering a Fall house lacrosse league.  The WYL House League is for Kindergarten – 3rd Grade.  We strive to make the House League FUN, get used to wearing the gear and start to get the hang of the game.  

  • Weather permitting, the season begins on September 27th.  League meeting, and gear handout at Skillings.  We will be SELLING gear this Fall.  Full used beginner sets for $50.  We do not sell sticks (which can be purchased online or at Lacrosse Unlimited in Burlington).
  • House League players are divided into two, grade-based divisions: The Kindergarten-1st Grade Division and the 2nd-3rd Grade Division.  We will also seperate by numbers to comply with local and state COVID guidelines.
  • Within each division, we will create teams for “Game Days” (which will be Sunday 9:30AM at Manchester).  Our first Game Day will be October 4th.
  • Everyone will practice at 5:30PM on Friday afternoon/evenings at Skillings Turf.  Practices will be for 75 minutes.  The first practice will be on October 2nd.  The last practice will be on November 6th.  
  • We will, of course, comply with all COVID rules.  This means that our "Games" will not look very much like a real lax game.  We will blow plays dead to avoid scrums.  We will not allow faceoffs.  And we will take other precautions.

 

PROGRAM 2

2020 FALL BALL - WYL FALL SKILLS AND DRILLS PROGRAM

We are excited to continue to accomplish our goal of developing home-grown high school caliber lacrosse talent with Winchester Lacrosse's Fall Ball program.  The Fall Ball program will consist of 2 skills practices per week for each age group.  

  • What you will need:  Everyone needs a stick, helmet, gloves, arm pads, shoulder pads, cleats and cup
  • Also, everyone must be a member of US Lacrosse for insurance reasons.

If your son is not playing extra lacrosse (through a Club or elsewhere), this program is intended to push their lax skills forward in preparation for the Winter/Spring.  If your son is playing lacrosse with a Club, this program is likely still doable because of the times and locations.

Program details:​

  • Program will run from September 21st - November 5th.
  • 4 grade-based groups:  
    • Group 1 (4th/5th Grade)
    • Group 2 (7th/8th Grade)
    • 6th Grade - You can pick one, but not both, for your son.  We strongly suggest that only the more experienced 6th graders play with the 7th and 8th graders.
  • All practices will be at Ambrose Field, when it gets to dark to play outside practices will be moved to a turf field in town. 
  • All practices will be 4:00PM-5:15PM.  Players are expected to be ready sharply at 4PM.
  • Practice Schedule:
    • Monday & Wednesday:  7th-8th (and select 6th)
    • Tuesday & Thursday: 4th-5th (and select 6th)
    • All players may attend one or both practices (for your applicable age group)

 

NOTE- IF YOU HAVE A CREDIT FROM US, PLEASE WAIT TO REGISTER UNTIL WEDNESDAY.  WE WILL ADDRESS IN THE SYSTEM BETWEEN NOW AND WEDNESDAY.
