Take the Pledge!

Help Us Earn $2,500 from Liberty Mutual Insurance Play Positive!


Liberty Mutual Insurance Play Positive is awarding $2,500 as part of their Play Positive Pledge program which promotes sportsmanship in youth sports.

Here’s how it works:

Every person who takes the Pledge to promote sportsmanship earns one point. The ten (10) organizations around the country that get the most points at the close of the period will earn $2,500.

 

Since we’ll only be competing against organizations of similar size we have a better chance to win! Of course, the more people we get to take the Pledge the better our chance of earning $2,500.

Let’s all work together – for the kids, and for $2,500. Just think of the ways this money could help us: equipment, uniforms, tournaments, lower registration fees – you name it!

Become a Certified Coach

US Lacrosse encourages all coaches to participate in some or all components of the Coaching Education Program, and encourages leagues and clubs to also utilize the Coaching Education Program for their coaching education needs. It is our vision that all lacrosse teams are coached by US Lacrosse-certified coaches for the benefit and quality of our sport.

The US Lacrosse Coaching Education Program is built upon:

  • Teaching coaches to coach, not to play the game
  • Teaching the game in a positive nature
  • Providing the best quality of instruction, information, and delivery
  • Being inclusive to all US Lacrosse members

You will learn how to:

  • Effectively teach everything from fundamental skills to advanced team tactics
  • Work with youth in an age-appropriate, safe manner
  • Choose drills in order to plan effective
  • Implement a positive coaching philosophy

Why should I get certified?

  • Your certification verifies that you are a coach set apart from the crowd. You’re recognized as having achieved coaching knowledge and sport-specific training from the only standardized lacrosse coach-training program in the U.S., developed by the leader in the sport, US Lacrosse.
  • You’ll gain credibility with parents and administrators that you take coaching seriously and are committed to being the best coach you can.
  • Your NCSI background screening is nationally recognized and utilized by most governing bodies and many youth sport organizations.
  • You’ll acquire a wealth of coaching knowledge and techniques through your certification journey. Our curriculums are built by coaches and players at the top of the game, and formulated to help you have the most impact on your players.
  • Getting certified is easy and convenient. Previous participation in any of the educational components counts toward certification. All in-person components for certification are available every year at the US Lacrosse National Convention.
  • Many leagues nationwide require US Lacrosse certification.

Compete with Class - Honor the Game

"COMPETE WITH CLASS and HONOR THE GAME"

Click Here and Commit to Take the Pledge


Dear TYLA Families,

 

What a great start to our Fall 2014 season!  Cool weather and dry fields - with GRASS - made for the perfect first day of practice!

 

TYLA has had few questions regarding the age groupings and roster assignments that we hope to be able to clarify. 

 

As discussed in detail at the parent meeting, the rosters were assigned strictly based upon the player’s date of birth.  The following is stated on the opening page of registration: “All players are required to register in their appropriate age group.  If there are not enough players registered for each age group, teams will be established according to US Lacrosse rules.”  What this means is that for now, and until registration closes and final assignments are made, players are to practice with their assigned groups - no exceptions.  

 

As participation in TYLA grows, it is important for the enjoyment of the game that we provide a level playing field among players of similar age, size and ability.  Greater participation in TYLA has afforded the boys team (and hopefully in the near future the girls team) the ability to form teams consisting of players competing in their age-eligible group.  Consequently, TYLA will be able to compete with other organizations on a “level playing field” where our teams are evenly matched.  This is in contrast to what we had to do as an organization to grow the sport.  In our “formative” years, younger players often played up an age group - sometimes two age groups - in order for the club form teams.  This necessity placed us at a significant disadvantage, often finding ourselves in contests where our kids were out-skilled, out-sized and simply out-matched.  It also placed our players at a greater - albeit mitigated - risk for injury.

 

To maintain a fair standard, TYLA policy has required and continues to require that players register in their age group.  This often causes a dilemma with our “tweeners”: those kids that find themselves U15 eligible but are Freshman in high school.  Our rosters are computer generated based upon gender and age - not upon grade.  As a result, there are times where roster assignments do not coincide with where the player was initially registered.  This means that some Freshman will roster on the U15 team if born on or after 9/1/1999, while players born before 9/1/1999 will fall onto the High School roster.

 

For the safety and enjoyment of all, and until the rosters are finalized and/or roster assignments agreed upon, players must practice with their assigned teams.  Once registration closes, team assignments will be finalized based on team needs in collaboration with the coaches, parents and Board.  

 

TYLA thanks you for your respect of the policy, careful consideration of this matter and 

- above all else -
