Welcome to Milford Youth Lacrosse
Milford Youth Lacrosse is continuing to grow our program, and with the new girl’s lacrosse program underway, we are looking for more support with the coaching staff. You don’t need to have previous lacrosse experience.
Please contact Sean McGinley or Chis Godek if you are interested in helping coach one of the boys or girls teams.
As with the coaching staff, we are looking to expand our Board of Directors. So if you are interested in a position on the board, please call Sean McGinley at 203-507-9819 or Chris Godek 203-687-0591 for further details on the elections.
As spring gets close.(Believe it or not!!!), I would like to welcome everyone to the 2015 lacrosse season. This is shaping up to be an exciting year. We have a great bunch of coaches, who are committed to the kids development.

Couple of other items:
24 Hour rule: Coaches should not discuss any try-out related situations, a agame incident, or a situation that occurred during a game that has provoked and adverse emotional response or created a hostile situation until at least 24 hours after the incident.
A member or parent is not to approach a coach to discuss a -out related situations, a game incident, or a situation that occurred during a game that has provoked and adverse emotional response or created a hostile situation until at least 24 hours after the incident.
-Note about the24 Hour Rule: Lacrosse can be an emotional sport. It is of utmost importance for parents to separate emotion from a child’s sport’s development The battles for the ball on the field should be the only one there is. Sometimes it is not the case. The intent of the 24 hour rule is to move a potentially emotional or confrontational conversation away from the presence of our players. Coaches and parents are to wait 24 hours, to allow the parties to “cool off”, compose themselves and put the provoking incident or situation that occurred in or during the game into perspective.
“Car Coaching”- We have all done it… “Hey Chris what happened out there”, or “Why didn’t you shoot when…”, after a game or practice… Quite simply try to refrain from it. Please leave the criticism to the coaches. Coaching on the ride home will only serve to frustrate your child. The best thing is to let them know how proud you are of them, how hard they worked, and MOST importantly how much you love to watch them play. Below is a link to an article a friend sent me a couple months ago.

This Charity allows children to exercise, get sponsors, and buy necessary items such as classrooms, beds, library books, etc. It allows your children to directly help other children in the world by their activities. This program can fulfill community service requirements for your children and possibly start an ongoing giving campaign that might last many years.
