For assistance with Registration,
Registration InformationUpdated Saturday November 8, 2014 by Prince George's Lacrosse Club.
FIRST-TIME PLAYERS: Use the promotion code FIRST-TIME to waive the late registration fee.
PRACTICE: Like last spring, we will be practicing on Mondays and Fridays. During the month of March, we'll mostly be at Duvall and also spend a week at UMD's rec fields. We will divide up between Acredale and Duvall once daylight savings kicks in. Practices will start in early March.
GAMES: we will be playing in the Metro Girls Lacrosse League (recreational) on Sunday afternoons. Divisions are created by grade. The 5/6 and 7/8 teams are expected to play at Holy Cross, Holy Child and Stone Ridge. The 3/4 location is still uncertain. 1/2s will be playing at Welsh Park. We'll have a scrimmage on March 26. Regular games are from April 2 until May 21 (no games on April 16).
4V4 LEAGUE FOR 1st/2nd GRADERS: The league is introducing 4v4 play for the 1st and 2nd graders (in addition to 7v7 play) intended for newer players. US Lacrosse is encouraging this smaller format because it gives kids more ball touches and a better playing experience. We also believe our younger and newer players will have more fun by playing on these teams so we hope to get 4v4 teams started. We will no longer offer mini-tykes.
We're looking for 1st/2nd grade parents ready to be part of the coaching teams for these small teams. The more coaches we find, the easier and more fun it will be for everybody. No prior experience required - all we need is your enthusiasm. Our current coaches are ready to get you started with rules and skills. As a bonus, we will waive your registration fees and get you Pride gear. Simply register as a coach or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested.
REFERRAL AWARDS: we're offering $50 referral credits to those of you who bring in new players (boys or girls) this season. Make sure new players list you as a referrer during

We will be playing in the Southern Maryland Youth Lacrosse Association (SMYLA) League.
Depending on registration numbers, we hope to field two teams at several age groups. Teams will be assembled to provide the most competitive and best developmental experience for our players. Beginning and newer players won't be matched with a player who has been playing for 5yrs. It is always a challenge, however we have found great success in having player learn lacrosse, grow a love of the game, and compete in a way that respects the game and its origins. WE WILL CAP TEAM REGISTRATIONS AND ONCE THEY ARE FULL, WE WILL CLOSE THEM, SO HOLD YOUR SPOT RIGHT NOW WITH AN INITIAL FEE. DON'T LET YOUR SON BE LEFT OUT. Registration closes March 18th and will not be extended!
New this season in SMLYA, each age division will be set up with varying field size, # of players, w/goalie or w/o Goalie, and some with differing competitive divisions, all with the goal of a better developmental experience based on age.
