Welcome to Bear Creek Youth Lacrosse

 

Following CHSAA actions, AYL has suspended the lacrosse season (and all sports) until April 6th.  Please be patient during this period, this is an unprecedented action based on the declared pandemic.  Hopefully it all cools down and we can move forward with our sports and lives.

The BCYL board will be in communication as soon as anything changes.  There will be lots of options to get our season in, and the AYL board will get creative if needed. Any questions, please reach out (lax.carroll@bcjsa.com)

IMPORTANT UPDATE

Due to concerns surrounding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and in accordance with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the World Health Organization, and other health authorities, The AYL is implementing new, mandatory health and safety procedures as part of a proactive approach to preventing the spread of germs.

Throughout the AYL organization, we are adopting these new measures effective immediately. We cannot stress enough how vital it is that all AYL participants adhere to these guidelines.

“No-Contact/No-Handshake” Policy

AYL is immediately instituting a precautionary “no-contact, no-handshake policy” to be observed at every level of the organization until further notice. This includes all physical contact and extends to customary game-related activities, such as pre-game coaches’ handshakes, umpire-coach introductions, and post-game handshakes between members of opposing teams. Instead, staff, players and coaches should use verbal queues, such as saying “good game,” without shaking hands, high-fiving or fist-bumping.

 

Maintain Good Hygiene Practices

All AYL volunteers, membership and participants in AYL sanctioned events should be aware of the coronavirus risk and take the necessary precautions to avoid exposure to germs. This includes maintaining good hygiene practices. We strongly recommend the following:

 

  1. Wash your hands often, using soap and water for at least 20 seconds each time
  2. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol; this is suggested after any physical contact with another person or with a shared surface
  3. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands
  4. Cover your mouth and nose – with a tissue, if possible – when coughing or sneezing, then properly discard the tissue in the trash
  5. Avoid close contact with anyone else who is coughing or sneezing or who is otherwise sick
  6. Clean or disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces. 

If you are sick stay home!!!! Don’t attend any practice or game. 

 

Advice from the CDC

The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) has a specific Q&A regarding the virus in children:

Q: Are children more susceptible to the virus that causes COVID-19 compared with the general population and how can infection be prevented?

A: No, there is no evidence that children are more susceptible...

- see here: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/specific-groups/children-faq.html

We will provide updates related to these new measures or let you know about any additional precautions to take if and when they become necessary. We appreciate your cooperation in following these new procedures as we work together to maintain the highest health and safety standards as an organization.

We will be looking at the decisions made my CHSAA and the local public schools on what decisions we will make in the future.

AYL President

Congratulations to all our teams for a successful Spring 2019 season.  And to our two AYL champions!  4th grade blue and 6th grade white
 

Game schedule can be found on AYL's site,  http://www.aylsportslacrosse.leag1.com/. We are working on getting the schedule linked to our website, but need an admin to fix something atm.

See below for the background on the uniform order. We will hand out temporary and some old jerseys on Friday at 6:30 at Schaefer field 13.  If you have not ordered a jersey and we can get you a used one, they are $35 cash. It's cash because I'll be giving the money to the former player who handed us the jersey.

If you have a jersey that you can hand in for another player to use, please bring it Friday.

For those that ordered uniforms, I have temporary plain white jerseys to hand out Friday.  After the weekend, please wash and return to your coach.

Why Play for Bear Creek Youth Lacrosse?
 
1. Safety:  Bear Creek Lacrosse is committed to the safety of your child and our parents and family members.  Each coach has a first aide kit and our lacrosse program has three AED's distributed to our coaches at our games/practices.  (Click to learn about this - then scroll about half way down the page).  All of our coaches and assistants are concussion certified and have completed child safe background checks.  Take just a few moments to read this information (Click Here) why AED's on so important to have on the sidelines!
 
2. Coaching:  Each of our coaches and assistant coaches strives to ensure that your child has fun playing lacrosse for Bear Creek Youth Lacrosse.  Each completes the PCA Double Goal coach training, head coaches are US Lacrosse Level I certified (or higher) and all are US Lacrosse Members.
 
3. Fun is Essential: Having fun while being safe is without question the most important component of any sport experience at any age or level. Whether you are a parent of a young child or a veteran coach, it is absolutely critical that your kids enjoy themselves when they play.

The reasons for this are somewhat obvious but important to reinforce. When kids have fun, they are more likely to continue to play. Fostering a love of exercise and athletic involvement has life-long benefits, including improved physical and mental health as well as academic performance. When kids don't have fun, they are less likely to play the next season and may drop out of sports altogether.

Researchers have found that anywhere from 30-70% of kids drop out of sports by the time they are 13 years old, and the number one reason why they quit is that they aren't having any fun.  From US Lacrosse (Click Here for Full Article)   While some programs/clubs will tell you how many kids are playing on top elite teams, we'll show pictures of kids smiling!  We like to say, "We are winning regardless of what the scoreboard reads!"

We work to create fun events outside out our lacrosse program.  Here are a few photos from some of our past events.  (Click Here)

 
4. Close-knit Group:  It is our desire to create a fun community environment where our parents and our players become friends on and off the field. 
 
* 2016 Spring Season Registration Only - Transportation & Supervision is not provided by Bear Creek Youth Lacrosse, this is an extracurricular event.
 
 
5 Non-Profit:  Many youth organizations are "for profit", while Bear Creek Junior Sports Association (BCJSA) and Bear Creek Youth Lacrosse are 100% volunteer run, non-profit organizations.  This is important as everyone in our program is here for the kids and we are only only interested in your child's best interests, it is not just a job to us.
 
 
Did you know?
Lacrosse is the oldest American game; Native Americans have played the game long before our colonies were settled.  In effort to promote the purest and best values of the game, US Lacrosse has partnered with the Positive Coaching Alliance to promote positive coaching and good sportsmanship throughout the sport of lacrosse.   Bear Creek Youth  Lacrosse (BCYL) also supports this movement and hopes that you will continue to enjoy playing for your BCYL team or join one of our youth teams.

We are constantly adding new information and features to the website.  Please take the time to visit all the pages we have to offer.  If you feel that we could enhance or improve your visit, please let us know.

Thank you visiting and we hope to see you wearing a Bear Creek Youth Lacrosse jersey soon!
