Is any equipment provided by the league?

If your child is new to the sport you may be in need of some equipment. If you are uncertain of their interest level, you may not want to invest in all of the equipment just yet.

The league has a small amount of loaner gear that is available for new players on a first come, first serve basis. Unfortunately, there is not enough for everyone.

Returning players must provide all equipment (except for extra gear required for goalies). 

When does the season start?

Lacrosse is a spring sport. Practices typically begin the in late March or early April and games will be scheduled towards the end of the month. The season runs from April through June.
 
Are games played against in-town teams or travel?

All lacrosse games will be scheduled against teams in other towns and will usually require travel.
 
Can I play up a level rather than with my grade level?

All players will initially be assigned to a program based on age and grade level. It will be the determination of the coach, with parental consent, to move a player up a level.
 
Can I help with the Burlington Youth Lacrosse?

Help is needed for countless activities such as coaching, fundraising, publicity, joining the Board and so on.
 
Do we play in tournaments?

The registration fee includes participation in one to two tournaments with the exception of the developmental teams. They do not play tournaments. Note: Lacrosse tournaments are typically half or full day events with three to four 25 minute games.
