NCLA schedules are not finalized until we are able to confirm coaching and field schedules which will not be until MarchWhile NCLA makes an effort to coordinate with other youth sports programs when creating the master schedule, we expect NCLA lacrosse to be a player's priority during the spring sports season for grades 5-8. Neither late registration fees nor the refund processing fee of $25 will be waived for any scheduling reasons for any programs.

BOYS PRESEASON 2018
Preseason Program Registration is open.

The NCLA is proud to announce its boys youth lacrosse pre-season schedule.  The schedule is comprised of 8 sessions for grades 6th - 8th and 6 sessions for grades 4th - 5th.   With the unpredictable weather in early March, our goal is to have at least 5 of the 8 sessions for grades 6th - 8th and 4 of the 6 sessions for grades 4th - 5th.   If the weather is good, we will continue to practice with a maximum possibility.

 

Coaches:   The NCHS Varsity Boys Lacrosse Coaches, Chip Buzzeo, Will Koshansky, Bobby Rushton, and Michael Santos, run our pre-season with special guests assisting them.  

 

Players must wear full equipment, including sweat pants and long sleeve shirts, sweatshirts, or jackets.  Players who are not equipped to practice in cold weather conditions will not be allowed to play.  NO SHORTS ALLOWED.

 

Dates / Times:  To best manage the use of one turf field (Dunning Stadium), each grade’s schedule is uniquely organized to fit all pre-season practices in a three week time frame.  If we do not reach our goal of pre-season practices for a particular grade, we then may be forced to put two grades on the same field (hopefully this doesn’t happen and we can get in all 8 sessions!).  

 

Players are asked to show up 15 minutes early to stretch on the side of the field (a coach will be assigned to lead this warm-up).  This will enable our coaches to maximize field time for drills.

 

Cost

6th, 7th, 8th grades = $75

4th, 5th grades = $50

 

Tryouts for Grades 5th - 8th will begin on Saturday, March 17th.   For more details, please check the NCLA website.
