2022 Spring WYL House League (K - 2) - The Young Buck Division

​​The House League

The WYL House League is for players from Kindergarten – 2nd Grade.  This is our biggest group of lacrosse players each Spring.  We strive to make the House League FUN.  

The goal is to have fun, get the kids to start to like and learn the game of lacrosse, and improve as a player.

  • Weather permitting, the season begins the week of April 4th.
  • House League players are divided into three, grade-based divisions: The Kindergarten Division, the 1st Grade Division & the 2nd Grade Division.  
  • Within each grade, teams (that are as evenly weighted as possible) are established for “Game Day” (which will be Satruday afternoons).  Our first Game Day will be the Saturday just before everyone goes "back to school" after April VK (April 24th).
  • Grades practice together as an entire grade (so-called “gang practices”) once each week, with common instruction across the Grade from parent coaches. Practices will be for 1-hour during the school week (Mon-Fri; 5 or 5:30) on a field location and day TBD (but likely Skillings grass or turf).
  • During practices, players may be periodically separated based on skill level to allow for newer players to develop basic skills, while allowing more experienced players to advance their skill and game skills. 
  • Exact times for practices and games will be established during the Winter (but as soon as possible).  However, we expect to practice Friday evenings at Skillings.
