Boys Program Registration Info for CYLA Fall 2020 League
We have decided to add a practice only option along with a games and practice option.
How to Register
- Practice and CYLA League Games
- Practice Only
Sundays (Sept. 20 and 27th, Oct. 4th, 11th and 18th) (Tentative Schedule as games and times have not been released yet)

Ideally, we would like to be able to do contact at these practices, so we are waiting to hear back from the City of Fort Collins but are also seeing what field restrictions are in Loveland and Windsor.
Games and practices the cost is $195. That will include 10 practices and 5 games but could be one or two additional games depending on number of teams that participate.
Practices only the cost is $130.
All teams will be coached by experienced coaches and will be following specific curriculum
Refunds will be granted in FULL if the season were to get cancelled prior to the first practice. If the league has already begun and gets cancelled, we will offer Pro-Rated refunds.
All registrants will be placed on a team within their age group. If there is a dramatic skill gap, we will handle those situations on a case-by-case basis.
Age groups that can participate
K-8th Grade (when you register you will register based on your current grade and all Kindergarten and 1 st grade will be grouped together so if your son is in kindergarten then please register him with the 1 st grade.
Coaches focus at Practice
- Building the Foundation. Nothing else matters if a player does not have the proper passing, catching, shooting, cradling, stick protection, footwork mechanics and one of the most forgotten and probably the most important thing on the field and that is COMMUNICATION.
- We want to focus on breaking the bad habits/muscle memorization and creating good habits/muscle memorization.
- Teach proper spacing on the offensive side of the field. Keeping your head up when you dodge. Focus on elevating Lacrosse IQ so players can start to visualize what is happening on the field and know when to cut, dodge and fill space for a step down/time and room shot.
- How to handle unsettled situations meaning when your team has an opportunity to have a man up advantage the players on the field know how to capitalize on that situation.
- Teaching the defense how to approach, breakdown and recover, staying low, sticks in the air, using proper footwork, communication, what to say and when.
- Clearing and riding
Depending on skill set we may not get to all these things and may only get as far as just working on Building the Foundation, but I want everyone to see the vision and progressions we need to make as a program, giving our players the best opportunity to be competitive and truly learn the game of lacrosse.
