Dear Parents, Coaches and SYSO lacrosse Players:
Welcome to SYSO Girls Lacrosse. For current session information please see pane to the left. We are extremely excited about the upcoming season. Our program has experienced tremendous growth other the past several years and we are expecting an even larger number of registrations for this season.
Lacrosse has a long and historical place in sports. For those unfamiliar with the sport, lacrosse incorporates skill from a number of sports our children already enjoy: the throwing motion of baseball; running and field positions of soccer; defensive strategy of basketball; and stick handling and speed of hockey.
Our program was developed to provide young athletes with the opportunity to gain an appreciation and understanding of the game of lacrosse in a fun and competitive learning environment. Our goal is to help all players improve their lacrosse skills, no matter what their ability level, through dedicated coaching and healthy competition. Our focus is on stick skills, offensive and defensive drills, and several games and tournaments. New players learn the fundamentals of the game, while more experienced players continue to advance their skills.
We stress the importance of sportsmanship and teamwork. We expect all of our players, coaches and parents to conduct themselves properly at all times. The SYSO Girls Lacrosse Program places an emphasis on teaching our young athletes to respect their teammates, coaches, opponents and officials. These values must be followed and encouraged by all involved.
- In order to maximize the competitiveness of each team in our program, balancing teams will be the top priority considered in creating teams. Please do not request placement with specific friends or coaches unless there is a critical need. In such a case, please contact commissioner directly.
- Volunteers are critically needed, especially for younger ages. It is a lot of fun, and NO experience is necessary. Please consider volunteering. Without enough coaches we run the risk of being unable to fulfill the needs of some programs.
- Please check your registration information from last year, and be sure to include all email addresses to which you would like to receive email communications.
- Please see Refund Policy page.
