NCLA schedules are not finalized until we are able to confirm coaching and field schedules which will not be until March. While 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.
