WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO JOIN JJYL?
Boys and girls in grades K-8 who reside in the Katonah-Lewisboro school district are eligible to play.

PLANNED START FOR SPRING SEASON

JJYL is currently working toward the potential of starting the season earlier than ever on March 27. There will be no additional charge to players if we are able to make this happen.

We know many parents are curious what specific days their son or daughter will practice. Unfortunately, specific practice days will be based on the field availability, which the school district will not be releasing until we get closer to the season start. Rest assured, if you have schedule conflicts, we can work through those and if ultimately if it does not work, you can always request a refund before the season begins.

RETURN OF TOURNAMENTS!

Assuming all things trend positively, we expect to return to tournaments in addition to our game schedules this year for grades 3-8. We are also exploring tournament for the younger grades as well.

STRUCTURE OF TEAMS

JJYL GIRLS TEAMS

While we expect the overall program framework to be similar to past seasons, we have introduced some changes based on experience and feedback from past seasons. The 2022 program is intended to run as follows:

  • K-2: Focus on introduction of individual stick skills and FUN skills-based play; K-1 will play in the season-ending Crayon Classic Tournament; 2nd Graders will play a few local games against other towns!
  • 3-4: Focus on development of individual stick skills; foundational introduction of team concepts; all 3-4 practice together; 3-4 will play games against other towns on balanced teams or pods (depending on registration #s)
  • 5-6: Focus on intermediate development of individual stick skills and understanding team concepts; all 5-6 practice together; 5-6 will play games against other towns on pods based on grade/skill, evaluated during preseason; game schedule and pod/team assignment will be appropriate to ensure competitive balance (depending on registration #s)
  • 7-8: Focus on advanced development of individual stick skills and application/advancement of team concepts; all 7-8 practice together; 7-8 will play games against other towns on pods based on grade/skill, evaluated during preseason; game schedule and pod/team assignment will be appropriate to ensure competitive balance (depending on registration #s)

JJYL BOYS TEAMS

  • K-1 - Focus on fun and learning in a skills clinic environment with inter squad scrimmages.
  • 2 - Due to the great numbers in our 2nd grade program, we plan to run this as a single team, with team-based practices and games against other towns.
  • 3 -  Single, grade-based team with team practices, games and a tournament.
  • 4-5 -will be a combined team with team practices, games and a tournament.
  • 6 - Single, grade-based team with team practices, games and a tournament.
  • 7-8 - Through our March clinics and early April team practices, coaches will evaluate players and each player will be placed on a team based on skill level. These teams will be split into 7/8 Black and 7/8 Purple and will practice at the same time, on the same field, but will play game schedules and a tournament based on skill level.

REGISTRATION FEES

While we plan to add additional weeks to the season (potentially indoors if the fields are not yet open), JJYL has decided to keep fees the same as in the past three spring seasons. We are doing this in hopes of continuing to attract and retain our JJYLers and build for the future.

US LACROSSE MEMBERSHIP

All players must have a U.S. Lacrosse membership that is valid through end of June 2022. You can get or renew your membership during the registration process.

UNIFORMS

Uniforms must be ordered by February 1, 2022 to be received in time for the start of the spring season. All players (boys and girls) are required to have a John Jay Wolves lacrosse jersey this year. We are using the same jersey as the 2021 Spring Season. If you do not have one or need a new size, please order by February 1, 2022. For sizing questions please contact Lacrosse Unlimited. We have also added optional game shorts for boys, skirts for girls, helmets, helmet stickers and team bag.

BOYS SHOULDER PAD REQUIREMENTS - NEW FOR 2022

Starting in January, all boys�????????�???????�??????�?????�????�???�??�?�¢?? players participating in any JJYL program must follow new standards in shoulder pad gear to protect against commotio cordis*, a potentially fatal condition. If your son arrives at practices and does not have the new pads, they will not be allowed to participate.

This new requirement - which is aimed at protecting our kids means all shoulder pads worn by youth field players must meet the NOCSAE performance standard ND200 (read about it here) in order to be deemed legal for play.

JJYL has partnered with Lacrosse Unlimited to offer you a wide selection of pads to meet these new standards. You can order from this link - choose the pads that best meet your needs.
