Elmira Youth Lacrosse - Spring 2017
Powered by the Southport Recreation Association
Spring lacrosse at SRA is a non-select travel program which has boys lacrosse teams in three divisions, grades K-2, 3-4, and 5-6. We primarily play teams in the Finger Lakes Lacrosse League. (To understand what we mean by non-select travel program read this page.)
This year we are planning to have two teams for grade 5-6 and two teams for 3-4. This may allow for an academy team for each level to concentrate more on new player needs. We are not sure how this will shake out yet. But demand is growing each year.
Pre-registration is open now. Help us to plan by pre-registering for free. We'll make sure you are included in all communications. Regular registration will open January 1, 2017.
Optional preseason practices will be once a week starting Sundays in January. Official practices will be two weekday evenings per week and will start indoors in March. Solid practice attendance is expected.
Games are typically on Saturday mornings. We play round robins with usually two games either home or away. We play some single games with nearby teams weekday evenings. The game schedule is from mid-April until the first week of June. Last year we played 20 games.
In the past this has meant three or four saturday trips "up the lake" (Geneva, Palmyra, Marcus Whitman, etc), 2-3 home saturdays, plus closer trips to Corning, Horsheads, Ithaca, Bath, Watkins Glen and Owego.
The teams in the Finger Lakes Lacrosse League are:
- Penn Yan
- Seneca Falls
- Marcus Whitman
- Mid Lakes/Phelps
- Watkins Glen
The cost is $100 plus a $25 yearly membership to US Lacrosse, the national youth lacrosse organization. There are no additional per game fees for the regular season. Lacrosse equipment is included in the cost and is distributed on a first come, first served basis while supplies last. SRA is committed to making lacrosse affordable.
