2019 SPRING LACROSSE
Spring 2019 Lutherville Lacrosse Registration remains open for limited age groups, but will close after our evaluations this weekend. There are several exciting changes and improvements being made this season! First, we are excited to be partnering with US Lacrosse for our coaching development program. Beginning this Fall, our coaches will complete training through US Lacrosse and we will begin to phase in a requirement for coaches to be certified through US Lacrosse’s coaches Development Program.
The second major change is that we intend to form a boys 2027 team that will compete as a “club” team. As many of you are aware, youth club lacrosse has had a significant impact on the landscape of lacrosse locally and most Rec. programs are investigating ways of providing the same club lacrosse experience under the umbrella of the recreation council. This is much more cost effective and therefore more accessible than private clubs, but must be done in a way that does not adversely impact our charter. All age eligible registrants will be able to tryout for this team as part of our combined tryout process. Based on our experience this season and player interest, we plan to offer “club” as an option for additional age groups in future seasons.
Online registration for the 2019 spring season can be accessed using the following link:

Little Ducks Boys & Girls 3/4 Program (not co-ed)- An introduction to Lacrosse through fundamental Fridays. Players will be divided into "in-house" teams and learn scooping, passing, and shooting. There are no games at this level. The ultimate goal at this division is to develop basic lacrosse skills and most importantly instill the love of the game early on. Players are required to have a regular boys/girls stick (no fiddle sticks). It is strongly recommended sticks are cut down to a total length of 36-37in.
Clinic In-House Program: The 5-6 & 7-8 age groups (both boys and girls) will be divided into equal teams and play in an “in-house” format only playing other Lutherville Lax teams. All games and practices are held at the same LTRC facilities.
Clinic Travel Team BOYS: We will form two boys team for 2nd year clinic players (1st grade/6year olds) to compete in the CARBALCO travel program. Team selection will be based on player ratings after 5-6 in house evaluations.
7-8 Travel Team: Our goal is to form multiple boys and girls teams in the 7-8 age group to compete in the MYLA travel program. Tryouts will be held prior to the start of the season for these teams. All players registered in the 7-8 age group will be contacted prior to tryouts to determine their interest in this elective opportunity.
2027 Boys “Club” Team: NEW THIS SEASON All players in the 2027 graduating year will be eligible for a new program we are rolling out this season. This team will compete in a spring club league and several summer tournaments. To be eligible for this team, all players must register for the 9-10 age group. There will be an added fee for players electing to participate on the club team to cover added league and tournament fees which will be collected after the team is formed.
MYLA Travel Program: The 9-10, 11-12 & 13-14 age groups (both boys and girls) will hold evaluations to divide the players into teams based on ability. These Lutherville teams will then compete against surrounding programs in the MYLA. All players are guaranteed a spot on a team with teams consisting of players of similar aptitude and experience.
Evaluations: Evaluations traditionally begin in mid-February and can continue through early March. However, we may hold early evaluations in November and December based on field availability. We will use a combination of indoor and outdoor fields to complete our evaluations.

MYLA League Rule: Lutherville Lacrosse plays in the MYLA. The MYLA has a rule that each player can only register and tryout for one MYLA Program. If Lutherville becomes aware that a player has registered for multiple Programs, the player will not be allowed to play for Lutherville and no refund will be given.
