Teams will be leveled by age/experience & we will make best efforts to put friends together. Practices will be 2x a week during April, until games begin in late April. Then practice 1x a week & 1 game a week during the other practice time. Games will be against like-age group teams from other nearby youth organizations.
COUNTY PRACTICES (Pee-Wee, Middies, Juniors 3rd-8th grade):
Practices will start around the end of February/beginning of March (weather dependent) for all county teams. Coaches will contact registered players with the exact day, time, and field location around mid-February. Practice pinnies will be distributed at the start of the season & collected at the end of the season.
EVALUATIONS (Middies & Juniors 5th-8th grade):
Evaluations will be held at the end of February (February 27th, 2022 12-4pm) for Middie and Junior teams. Players will be evaluated and placed on the team that best fits their skill level as determined by the evaluators, coaches, and commissioner. All Junior & Middie players must plan on attending this evaluation session. Registered players will be notified via email as to specific details regarding evaluations. Please note: some player shifts may occur the first week of practice to account for skill levels.
Players must have/provide the following equipment:
- · Girls/Womens Lacrosse Stick (no fiddlesticks or boys lacrosse stick)

- · Eye Goggles (specifically for girls lacrosse)

COACHING & VOLUNTEERS:
We are always looking for qualified and enthusiastic coaches to volunteer their time to help out with our teams. The more coaches we have the more players we can have with increased playing time and opportunity to learn the sport. If you are interested in coaching at ANY level please contact Commissioners Lisa Weber-Raley & Rachelle Synoracki at firstname.lastname@example.org.
SRYA adheres to Anne Arundel County rules and focuses on promoting fair play, good sportsmanship, fundamental skill, and play development. As mandated by the county, all players at all levels will have the opportunity to enjoy at least 25% play time per game. Between the weekly practices and the games, players will have plenty of opportunity to learn more about this fast-moving sport.
