WOBURN YOUTH LACROSSE TEAM GUIDELINES
Our goal is to provide the players with a fun and instructional environment in which to learn the game of
lacrosse. Everyone associated with this program is a volunteer who wishes to convey their love of
lacrosse to the players in the program. We have made some guidelines in regards to games and
practices, so that players and parents realize the expectations of our program from the start of the season.
Our playing season consists of approx. 8 games in the MBYLL / MBGLL (Massachusetts Bay Youth
Lacrosse League / Mass Bay Girls Lacrosse League), with games being played on Sundays. In most
cases, we will play four games at home and four games away. As with any outdoor sport, weather can
play a factor in scheduling and cancellations. We follow MBYLL / MBGLL’s guideline on this also.
MBYLL / MBGLL and Woburn Youth Lacrosse expect coaches, parents and players to exhibit the
utmost respect towards officials, opponents and each other during games. We also expect that players
will respect teammates and coaches during practice time as well. We are trying to teach good
sportsmanship as well as the game of lacrosse.
There will be two scheduled practices each week. Attendance at these practices is very important for
players in order to learn the game of lacrosse. In order to be fair to all players and coaches, we need to
stress the necessity of attending each practice. Absences can result in decreased playing time for the
game that week. Multiple absences and problems with the practice schedule will be dealt with on a case
by case basis and with the individual team coaches. This is why communication of absences needs to be
communicated to the coach in advance. The only acceptable excuses for missing practice are school or
family obligations and illness.
Game jerseys are part of the program cost and are the responsibility of each and every player. If a
game jersey is lost and needs to be replaced a $30.00 fee will be required to order a new jersey.
All players need to wear black shorts, which are not provided by the league.
Every play is responsible to provide their own MBYLL & MBGLL league approved equipment.
In cases where Woburn Youth Lacrosse provides equipment (such as goalie gear, and defensive
long poles) it is the responsibility of the player to return that gear back to Woburn Youth
Honest communication between players, parents and coaches is necessary for the program to be
successful. We feel these guidelines are necessary in order to be fair to everyone. We look forward to a
successful season and welcome our many new players to the wonderful world of lacrosse!
