LYA Girls Lacrosse – Spring 2021

Welcome to LYA Girls’ Lacrosse!

This program is intended to support participation in lacrosse from Elementary to Middle School age youth in the Downingtown Area School Districts.  It is for residents of the Downingtown Area in grades 1 through 8 and is affiliated with the Philadelphia Area Girls’ Lacrosse Association (PAGLA).

Our mission is to promote the game of lacrosse and to provide a safe and fun opportunity while emphasizing the importance of good sportsmanship, fitness and teamwork.   Our goal is to teach players fundamental skills for success on and off the field.

**Now including Kindergarten players in our Saturday clinics! Look below for details!**

LYA is a volunteer organization.  It cannot be said often enough that the success of the program depends on the dedication of it's volunteers.  We are looking for coaches for ALL age groups!  Practice plans and additional support are available.  NO experience necessary.  All we ask is that you donate your time and provide a fun, learning experience for the girls.

All Players will need the following lacrosse equipment to play:

colored mouth guard, protective eye guard, and GIRLS’ Lacrosse Stick



Grades K-2 Clinic:

Practices will begin early April. Practices will be once a week for approximately 1 1/2 hours per practice on Saturday afternoons (with a Sunday rain date).  All the K- 2nd grade players will be assigned to a coach and team.  The teams will practice in a “clinic” format in which the girls rotate throughout various stations to learn/improve fundamental skills such as cradling, ground balls, passing/catching, shooting, and defense.  Stations will last for approximately 60 minutes and will be followed by a short scrimmage.  Practices will be held on Saturdays from 3pm until 4:30pm at LYA Park.

We need coaches! Curriculum will be provided for you to follow each week, including drills! Please consider helping out our program!

Schedule TBD

Grades 3/4:

Practices will be held on weeknights, beginning the first week in April (weather permitting) at Lionville Park. We may be able to reserve some turf time in March for the girls to begin. If so, you will receive information on that. Practices will be once or twice a week for approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes per practice.  Practice nights will be determined by your daughter’s coach so please be sure to indicate on the special request line on the registration form what nights your daughter cannot practice. Note- we cannot accommodate each family's schedule all the time. We do our best but it is not guaranteed! Games will be played on Saturdays and will begin April 8th.  Each team will play against other LYA teams and possibly against other PAGLA teams.  We will also be sending teams to the Spring Fling play day in Coventry in April (Date TBD) and possibly the PAGLA Playday in May.

Grades 5/6:

We will begin our season with some clinics (indoor, on turf) to evaluate the girls to try to balance our teams as best we can. Please look for information on that soon. Practices will be held on weeknights, beginning the first week in April (weather permitting). Practices will be once or twice a week for approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes per practice.  Practice nights will be determined by your daughter’s coach so please be sure to indicate on the special request line on the registration form what nights your daughter cannot practice.
