We offer the following levels of play:

 

Boys - Kindergarden - 2nd grade

  • This division is operated in a clinic type environment. Basic skills like throwing and catching will be taught, along with basic fundamentals of the game. We will go two days a week, consisting of practices only. Practices are dates and times TBD.
  • Safety is always our first priority with our players.

Boys – 3rd and 4th grade

  • In this division, based on prior registrations we are planning to field two teams of A & B talent. We will have all players go to a tryout and a representative from the league will determine if your son plays on what team.  The "A" team will consist of players with a minimum amount of skill level and knowledge of the game. The "B" team will consist of players that do not possess the basic fundamentals (catching, throwing & scooping). These teams will play each other and other towns in Westchester and Putnam counties, A teams playing other A teams and B teams playing other B teams. The target is for each team to play 8-10 games plus some tournaments/Jamborees. Fundamentals of the game are stressed, as is full participation for each player. Each player should get an opportunity to play each position on the field. Games scores are kept, but the winning of the contest is secondary to the development of each player.
  • Safety is always our first priority with our players.
 
Boys  – 5th and 6th grade
  • In this division, based on prior registrations we are planning to field two teams of A & B talent. We will have all players go to a tryout and a representative from the league will determine if your son plays on what team. The "A" team will consist of players with a minimum amount of skill level and knowledge of the game. The "B" team will consist of players that are lacking in the basic fundamentals (catching, throwing & scooping). These teams will play each other and other towns in Westchester and Putnam counties, A teams playing other A teams and B teams playing other B teams. The target is for each team to play 8-10 games plus some tournaments/Jamborees. Fundamentals of the game are stressed, as is full participation for each player. Games are more competative at this level.
  • Safety is always the first priority with our players.

Boys  - 7th and 8th grade

 
  • The boys 7th/8th grade "A" team is a more competitive brand of lacrosse and the players will be learning advanced plays and during practices coaches will stress using both hands for the fundamentals. This team will compete against teams from Westchester and Putnam Counties also. This age group will also have a B team and we will continue to stress development of the fundamentals of the games and equal participation is required for the "B" team.
  • Safety is always the first priority with our players.
  • The spring season starts as the weather and field conditions permit. If the weather is suitable we may start in the middle to late March. Practices will be at numerous locations throughout the immediate area. The season runs until the middle of June. Grades 3-8 will have home games that will be played at East Fishkill Rec Center, McGrath Fields.
  • Grades 3-8 will also play away games against towns throughout Westchester and Putnam Counties. Games can be played any day during the week, including Saturday and Sunday. Weekday games start at 6:30pm with weekend games starting at any time.
