2017 Spring Boys Lacrosse League

 

It may look like winter right now, but it is time to start gearing up for the spring 2017 Lacrosse season.    
 
Lacrosse is THE sport to play in the spring and it is never too late to start playing the fastest game on two feet.  Ranger Lacrosse provides elementary and middle school boys with the structure and coaching to teach the fundamental skills required to play lacrosse, as well as to promote the spirit and sportsmanship of the game. Teams will be organized based upon skill, experience and age groups from novice to advanced.
 
Ranger Lacrosse participates in the Colorado Youth Lacrosse Association (CYLA) which has 28 clubs located along Colorado's Front Range. There are eight age divisions (U7-U15) and open to players in the 8th grade and younger.   There are three skill levels (Blue, White and Red) in each age division which allow teams to be competitive at various experience levels.
 
We encourage everyone to sign up as soon as possible making our planning for the season easier.

Player Costs
   League Fee: $230 3rd Grade and under (U7-U9)
                     $250 for 4th through 8th Grade (U10-U15).
Note: You must have a valid US Lacrosse membership number to register (valid through June 1st, 2017).  The annual dues for US Lax membership is $30.  To receive a new membership or renew your membership go to US Lacrosse and click the "Join/Renew Now" button. 

 

Uniforms
We are using the same uniforms as last year.  If you have a jersey from last year you do not need a new uniform.  If you are getting a new uniform you need to indicate you jersey size when you register.   If you would like to select a number and verify sizing you will need to attend a uniform fitting session.  The uniform consists of shorts, shooter shirt, reversible jersey and socks.  We also require players to have a practice pinnie.  If you have a pinnie from any prior season you will not need a new one. 
   Uniform Fee:  $80 
   Practice Pinnie: $20 
 
Equipment
Players must provide their own equipment. Required equipment includes: a lacrosse stick (Crosse) - either 42" or 72", shoulder pads, arm/elbow pads, mouth-guard, helmet and gloves. Goalie require additional equipment.  As a means to introduce the game of lacrosse to new players Ranger Lacrosse offers a rental program for required equipment (except the lacrosse stick & mouth-guard).
 
Age Verification  
Proof-of-age documentation is needed for players as part of CYLA's commitment to player safety and equitable competition. This year CYLA is piloting a new process in cooperation with US Lacrosse and NCSI (National Center for Safety Initiatives) to utilize a highly secure and technologically advanced online system to verify ages rather than submiting unsecured paper documents to program administrators and coaches. NCSI uses a similar system to obtain annual background checks for CYLA coaches. 
 
We are asking parents of new players to CYLA or who did not play in the spring 2016 season to submit proof-of-age documents directly to NCSI through this secure online process.  Players who played in CYLA in the spring of 2016 do not need to complete this process. NCSI will verify the documents and will confirm individual player eligibility prior to the start of the 2016 CYLA season.  
 
Please select the tab on the left vertical menu labled "Age Verification" and follow the directions.
 

Lets play some Lacrosse!

VOLUNTEER COACHES NEEDED

We have a need for volunteer coaches. Coaches can be parents, older brothers or sisters, college students, grandparents and you don't have to be a brilliant lacrosse player to coach. We are looking for anyone who enjoys working with boys 2nd through 8th grade. If you have no experience and yet want to coach you will be paired with one of our experienced coaches.

If you are interested in coaching or co-coaching a team please contact us at:
