Team Slots are Limited - Register as early as possible:
ALC reserves the right to end registration by age level at any time. The number of teams, and thus players, is determined by the number of coaches. Each age level is filled on a first-come basis. Registrations received after a division fills are put on the wait list.
8th Grade Participation:
All players through and including Grade 8 shall be eligible to play in the NVYLL without regard to whether they play for any club or school teams. Therefore, players in 8th grade who play for their high school or club lacrosse teams (JV) will be eligible to play for ALC 14U (boys) or G7/8 (girls) as long as they meet the age requirements.
ALC conducts player evaluations as required by NVYLL for the boys at 10U, 12U and 14U and for the girls at grades 3 through 8. The purpose of player evaluations is to determine proper team assignments. Player evaluations will be held in February. The details are distributed to registered players and posted to the web site when available. These sessions are restricted to fully registered players. No walk-in registrations are permitted. All registered players are placed on a team. ALC does not use evaluations to cut players from the program. Team assignments are completed in February and March.
Players must register for the division in which their birthdate falls. Players will only be allowed to “play up” if ALC determines that it is necessary to move players to fill out rosters so that we can maximize participation at each age group AND if the player demonstrates the age appropriate skill in the next age division based on player evaluations. There is a question in the registration system to make the request to play up in a division; if you are interested in your player doing so, please fill this out and contact the appropriate boys or girls commissioner. The final decision regarding level of play is made after player evaluations and overall team numbers are balanced.
The ALC/NVYLL game season runs from March 21st(boys)/March 22nd(girls) through the middle of June, with 8 regular season games and 2 rounds of play-offs. No games on Easter or Memorial weekends. Girls K-2nd and boys 8U do not participate in playoffs. Boys games are played on Saturday and girls games are played on Sundays. The game schedule is developed and distributed by NVYLL. The game times and locations are available one to two weeks prior to the first game. Little Laxer progam will not have scheduled games.
Uniforms are provided to each player for the season. Uniforms are to be returned at the end of the season.
Girls: Girls return their Jerseys at the end of the season. Girls will be given an ALC t-shirt to keep.
Boys: Boys return their Jerseys at the end of the season. The boys keep their uniform shorts.
US Lacrosse Membership:
As part of the registration process, the player must establish or renew their membership directly with US Lacrosse. Membership in US Lacrosse is a requirement because ALC insurance is through the organization.

The membership must be active through 06/30/2020 in order to proceed with registration.
ALC Needs Coaches: Please volunteer to be a coach this year
The number of coaches determines the number of teams. Coaching is a great way to learn the game and contribute to the community. Please consider coaching a team. Do you know someone with a lacrosse background? Do you know of a former college player who lives in the area? Do you know of a former youth player who is now in high school? Talk to them about coaching for ALC.
