Chelmsford Youth Lacrosse offers programs for Boys and Girls at 4 age levels. We welcome and encourage all interested players at any level - prior experience playing lacrosse is not required. Both our boys' and girls' teams compete in the MA Youth Lacrosse League.
Our Classic program is focused on building age-based skills and game knowledge. Teams are evenly distributed by skill and offer equal playing time for all players. Practices are 2x a week with a game on Sunday and include a season-end Jamboree.
Our Select program offers a faster pace of play and a higher level of competition to players. There is a tryout and an additional fee for this team. An additional practice and game each week are expected of these players. Players will be eligible to be nominated to compete in the MA Youth Lacrosse League All-Star game.
Registration for the 2024 season opens September 1, 2023.
