Martha's Vineyard Youth Lacrosse


Dear Lacrosse Coach, Player & Parents,

On behalf of Martha’s Vineyard Youth lacrosse – THANK YOU for making the trip to Martha’s Vineyard.  We're certain you have many logistical questions about accessing the island of Martha’s Vineyard.  Listed below are highlights about transportation to the fields as well as helpful information for spectators who may be traveling to MVY to watch their favorite athlete.  Thank you once again for visiting our island and we look forward to seeing you at the fields. Keep in mind, once you're on MV, we will have a bus there to bring your team and coaches to the fields. If there is available space spectators are welcome to jump in but if there's no available space after teams and coaches are in, there are taxi's available at the docks to bring your spectators to the field at their expense. MVYL will only arrange for travel for coaches and players.
