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.

START OF SPRING SEASON

JJYL is currently working toward starting the season in early April. 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 it does not work, you can always request a refund before the season begins.

RETURN OF TOURNAMENTS!

Based on last yearâ??s success, we will again have tournament play in addition to our regular game schedules for grades 3 to 8. We are also exploring tournament participation for the younger grades as well.

REGISTRATION FEES

Included in our registration fee this year are new, upgraded uniforms for each level. We are excited to upgrade our uniforms as it will foster team unity, create solidarity, and promote a sense of belonging. We plan to stick with this design for several years, so after this initial purchase, players can use their uniform year after year â?? and only upgrade as necessary (i.e., as they grow with age). During your registration process, you will be able to select your top two jersey number choices and we will do our best to accommodate - if your choices are not available, we will assign you a number. Given the long lead time for uniform delivery, it is important that you register by January 31st.

US LACROSSE MEMBERSHIP

All players must have a U.S. Lacrosse membership that is valid through the end of June 2023. This covers our insurance requirements. You can get or renew your membership during the registration process.

LOANER PROGRAM FOR NEW PLAYERS

New players can participate in our no-risk equipment loaner program. For girls, just check â??new playerâ?? when registering. Boys must fill out a second registration unique to the loaner program to participate. Boys also require a deposit for the gear borrowed.
