Registration Information

**For up to date PYL news and information like our Facebook page HERE !!**

12/27/17 NEWS:

REGISTRATION for some age groups will close next week. PLEASE register soon, of your child may be left out for the 2018 season. 

Dear PYL players & parents:

Registration for the 2018 lacrosse season is NOW open!!! There is a lot of information in this first letter, so please read it carefully. 


  • New TOTS Program for K and First-time 1st graders -$55 (includes a t-shirt and borrowed stick)
  • U9 boys and Girls are $95
  • U11-15 Boys and Girls $180
  • Additional Siblings receive a $25 discount

Registration is open NOW for returning players only! 

Registration will open for non-returning players on November 1. 

We suspect the boys and girls U13 to have wait lists. 

US LACROSSE fees are required for Girls
Each girl player is also required to have a current US Lacrosse membership through July 1, 2018, so if your membership expires before then, you must renew it for the season at the time of registration. US Lacrosse fees are $30. Girls will pay this directly to US Lacrosse as usual, during the registration process. The process for the boys is different this year and is described below.

NEW THIS YEAR for the Boys
The boys will pay $40 to MBYLL instead of US Lacrosse. That will register them as a player with the league and cover insurance. The boys are not required to be US Lacrosse members. 


ALL boys will be required to purchase a new uniform this year.

Girls will only order a uniform if they are new, they need a larger size, or they lost theirs from 2017. We are NOT changing uniforms this year. 

Uniform ordering will be open in a few weeks. We will send you a reminder for ordering them online as soon as we have the final pricing. 

We will also be opening an online Spirit Wear store early next month, just in time for Christmas. Stay tuned for emails on that. 

If you are looking for a gift right now, our TEAM STORE is open 24/7. There are great ideas for the little laxers in your life - especially great ideas for birthday party gifts. Most items in the store can be customized too and there is fun stuff for kids and adults. Click on this link to shop anytime. 


If you have a kindergartener or first grader who would like to try lacrosse without the huge commitment of a travel league and expensive equipment - the TOTS program is the perfect option.

The tots program will be a great, first time introduction to lacrosse for co-ed children in Kindergarten and anyone in first grade who is hesitant to commit to a full season. The program will last for 8 weeks, and there will be once weekly skills/scrimmage sessions for 1 hour on Saturday mornings. There is no travel to games, no uniform, no equipment to buy - except mouthguards - NO PRESSURE!

This is an excellent way for little kids to try lacrosse. They will learn basic skills through fun games and then scrimmage other TOTS teams each week. The $55 fee includes a T-Shirt and the use of a real lacrosse stick. 

For players looking to play more lacrosse, on a more competitive level 

PYL will also have Select Teams for U13 and U15 boys and girls.
All PYL players are encouraged to play for PYL select teams. Select Teams will have tryouts this year.  If coaching resources and field space are available, there will be select team practices once a week.  You must register to try out. Registration for Select will open once Classic registration closes   

  • Select Teams will be competitive.
  • Select Teams will not take away or supersede town teams.
  • Select players must honor their town team practices and games, so if you don’t show up for regular practices and games, you will not play on the Select Team come game time.
  • PYL will not submit select teams if there is an insufficient number of players. 

Click HERE to register for 2018 Season 

Practice will start on Friday, March 2nd at the indoor, turf arena at the Topsfield Fairgrounds. We will hold practice at Topsfield on Fridays from 3/2 to 4/6/18.
We will also be using the gym at Bagnall as needed for indoor practices on Monday and Thursdays from February 26th through the first games - weather dependent - we would always rather be outside! 
Once the season starts and we can practice outside:
TOTS will practice on Saturday mornings
Girls will practice Tuesdays and Fridays
Boys will practice Tuesdays and Thursdays (in most cases)
We can't wait to see everyone on the field again in 2018!
