It’s hard to believe we are only a couple months away from lacrosse season. Registration is in full swing, and I encourage everyone to register as early as possible.
Couple other things to get out of the way sooner than later would be to check the following items for fit:
__Check sticks/pockets for wear, loose heads, tape, butt ends.
(If you need a stick restrung, now is a
great time to start that process)
We anticipate getting on the YMCA fields this year and we will keep you posted as we are updated by the city.
Every year we get some questions on what exactly the registration fees cover, so we thought we'd share those details with everyone.
Q: What does registration pay for?
A: Registration fees cover:
· Affiliation dues (CONNY and US Lacrosse membership which includes accident insurance)
· Game / practice equipment (goals, balls, goalie equipment, first aid kits)
· Coaches certification and education programs
· Field time (parks & recreation department fee)
· Jamboree/Tournament fees
· Fiscally prudent reserves
All of the above is primarily funded by your child’s registration fee. Our annual fundraiser, and business sponsorship help to supplement registration fees, but the majority of the funds come from registration. Some of the above costs go up every year, but MYL works to stabilize costs over time. This year we are making a renewed effort to target and solicit local businesses for additional support; and as always the success of our fundraiser(s) depends on you.
Thanks again for your continued interest in Milford Youth Lacrosse.
