REGISTRATION OPENS WEDNESDAY AUGUST 10
 
 

Welcome to EYLA Girls Fall 2022!

Season dates: 1st thru 8th Grades  
Wednesday practices - 9/7/22 - 10/16/22
 
 

Our program teaches women’s lacrosse fundamentals in a fun and safe environment and is designed for both beginner and experienced players. EYLA is part of the Illinois Lacrosse League (ILL) a league comprised of other like-minded community-based teams and we are looking forward to fun and friendly competition both at our home field and away. All girls grades 3rd -8th will participate in ILL this fall and 1st-2nd will practice and scrimmage.

*League participation is subject to IDPH guidelines and as we get closer to the season, we will have more details.

EYLA is divided into 4 separate age groups and girls must register for their grade level; no exceptions will be made. Practice times are set, but field locations are subject to change at the discretion of the Director prior to the beginning of the season.

Grade Levels
1st/2nd grade
3rd/4th grade
5th/6th grade
7th/8th grade

 
 
Just register per age group and get ready for a fun FALL season!
Depending on the numbers, we will separate into teams when the season begins. Stay tuned.

 

 

Please note: we need at LEAST one parent from each team to commit as a volunteer coach for the season! Any lax experience would be preferred, but anyone is welcome! Please let us know if you can step up and help our community-based organization. We are in dire need of volunteers at the younger grade levels- especially 1-4th grade. Our parent volunteers have been with us for years and their daughters are now in 5-8th grade. We cannot successfully run our program without parent coaches.

Please step-up today! Perks include: community involvement, volunteering for a well-run and established program, love, and adoration from a bunch of kids who are NOT yours AND your player plays for free.

 

Looking forward to a great season!
