Katonah-Lewisboro School District adopted the New York State Athletic Placement Process (“APP”) which allows 8th grade students to try out for certain High School sports teams, including lacrosse.
The JJYL policy regarding 8th grade boys and girls is as follows:
8th grade boys and girls players that make and decide to play on a John Jay High School lacrosse team may also play on a JJYL team in the same season if they commit to the following:
· Attend at least one JJYL practice per week, and,
· Attend all games that do not conflict with their JV games.
We do encourage players who wish to tryout for a John Jay High School team to also register for JJYL and attend our player evaluations in March. This will ensure they are placed on the appropriate youth team if they do not make a High School team.
One of the JJHS requirements to tryout for JV is a coaches recommendation. Please note that the coaches recommendation to tryout for JV is given by the JV coaches during an open gym format and not through your JJYL or club coach. Dates on the open gym will be communicated and announced by the high school. For more information on the APP process, including proper paperwork and physical testing required, please reach out to the John Jay HS Athletic Department.
Note: Revised for JJYL Spring 2020 Season
