Each team will have their own individual web page once we break off into teams. You can access that page from the horizontal menu bar titled in-house/travel/indoor. Select the season you are playing (outdoor), then select your league (in-house, travel, or indoor), then select your team under the far right hand drop down menu.

We just wanted to spend a minute explaining our program policy regarding roster requests and playing in the wrong age group.
At our younger age groups (Pockets & Clinic) we do our best to accommodate as many roster requests as we possibly can. We completely understand that when you are 4, 5 or 6 playing rec sports is all about playing with your friends. Make sure to mark your member file for any requests in the note field, and our coaches will do their best to accommodate those requests.
At Tyker & Lightning, we are more concerned about fielding evenly balanced teams and the development of the players. Our coaches again will do what they can to accommodate requests, but only if the balance of the teams remain intact (teams are selected through a draft).
Playing within your appropriate age group…
The Maryland Youth Lacrosse Association (MYLA) is the governing body of youth lacrosse for our program. MYLA sets the age groups, and their respective cut off dates. This controls all of our travel teams at the Tyker & Lightning levels as well as all of our Midget & Junior play.
We understand that boys with late birth dates often move to the older age group before the rest of their friends. We have over 100 boys in our program who play with their friends every other year due to their age. If we honored a request for one, we would have to honor them all. You can imagine how this will negatively affect all of our programs, from Pockets to Lightning.
We appreciate your understanding of this topic.
