Our fall program emphasizes age-appropriate fundamental lacrosse skill development, structured games, and scrimmages for both boys and girls, ages 6-15. The program is run by our amazing spring team coaches. Let’s keep the rust off, continue to develop skills for the spring, and have a ton of fun out there!
Fall Ball sessions are FREE and 100% OPTIONAL. They should be attended in addition to your fall sports. We are strong believers in multi-sport athletics, so join us whenever you're not on the ice or another field. Fall sessions are scheduled to minimize conflicts with your athlete's traditional fall sports commitments.
Fall Ball Registration is OPEN all season. If you haven’t already, be sure to register your athletes today:
Inclement Weather Policy
Hopefully, we’ll have great weather this fall, but forecasts have been wacky the world over! IF we ever have to cancel program-wide due to weather, we will send updates via social. Be sure to follow us to stay up-to-date:
Assume that all events are ON unless we notify you otherwise. We’ll only send out cancellation notifications IF we have to cancel. In the event of lightning, we will stop play for at least 1/2 hour after the last sighting for safety reasons.
Prior experience playing lacrosse is NOT REQUIRED for fall ball. However, players are required to have proper equipment. If acquiring equipment poses a hardship on you or the friend(s) you're introducing lacrosse to, please contact us at: needequipment @ cambridgeyouthlacrosse.org with general sizing information and we will do our best to set you up with gear.
High School Pay and Volunteer Opportunities with CYL in '23-24
