CYLA offers opportunities for girls and boys in grades K-6 during the spring and summer months. Our organization began in 2012 with the mission to grow the participation and enjoyment of lacrosse for school age children in the West Genesee District, including Holy Family. We are pleased to have between 300 & 400 girls and boys participate each year and we look forward to many more years of community opportunity and enjoyment in the sport of lacrosse!
2020 Season Information:
Similar to the 2019 season, CYLA will be participating in the ULA program in 2020.
CYLA will not sponsor travel teams. However, some grade level coaches may elect to have tryouts in order to take individuals desiring to travel & play in higher level competition tournaments. Please reach out to your coaches once practices begin in late April if you would like to learn more about what opportunities may be available at the various levels.
CYLA is open to all boys and girls in grades K – 6 (current school year) residing in the West Genesee School District or attending Holy Family.
Components of CYLA include:
Grade K – Weekly introductory/fun “practices” occurring in May & June
Grades 1 & 2 – Weekly practices and scrimmages occurring in May & June
Grades 3, 4, 5, 6 – Clinic-based practices/scrimmages from late April to early June, followed by participation in the Upstate Lacrosse Association (ULA) league from mid-June through July. The ULA season will consist of 1 local game & 1 practice each week. ULA games are generally each week on Monday evenings (3rd & 4th graders) and Tuesday evenings (5th & 6th graders) practice will be on another designated night.
We expect the season to kickoff with Grades 3-6 clinics on Saturday, April 25, 2020 and Saturday, May 2, 2020. These dates are tentative and subject to change due to weather and field conditions.
We also have tentative practice schedules set, but they are subject to change due to the availability of our volunteer coaches and fields. More information from the directors of each respective division will be available within the next several weeks. At that time, you may inquire as to any pertinent questions you may have.

The kindergarten program is meant only as a fun, introductory program which will utilize soft lacrosse balls and in which no hitting will occur. For the 1/2 and up programs, boys and girls will need full equipment- you may consult our website under FAQ’s to review the equipment needed.
Thanks again and we will see you soon! GO WILD!
