The Silverbacks Lacrosse Association (formerly the Newark Youth Lacrosse Club ) got its start in 1989. SBLA has grown since then to offer boys and girls in grades K through 8th grades the opportunity to play one of the fastest growing sports at the youth level. SBLA is a member of the Delaware Youth Lacrosse Association who organizes league games and tournaments during the Spring season that runs from early March through the end of May.
Our Goals and Philosophy at SBLA is to provide a safe, fun and positive environment that fosters good sportsmanship and citizenship while learning the skills necessary to play the great game of lacrosse.
