Welcome to the 2017 Annandale Youth Lacrosse Season
Registration is open for all players in the Annandale, Falls Church, J.E.B Stuart, Lake Braddock and Woodson High School pyramid.
Sign up now because assessments are just weeks away.
BOYS LACROSSE: January 28th, February 4th and February 11th at South Run Field House
We will be starting up assessments on January 28th, February 4th and February 11th at South Run Indoor Facility so go to our website and REGISTER NOW!
If you have not registered and paid, your son will not be allowed to participate.
For those of you who are new to the program, the assessments allow the coaches to place your son on the appropriate team for their knowledge, skills and abilities. We will have coaches filling out forms on fundamental skills and then we take those evaluations and determine teams at the end of the three assessment periods. For your son to get an accurate evaluation it is IMPERATIVE that they attend ALL THREE Assessments! Remember, every boy will make a team, there are no “cuts” so tell them to relax and have fun.
GIRLS LACROSSE: January 21st Practices begin, with assessments starting on Week 3. Kids Choice – Annandale
Saturday Mornings 1/21 – 3/21:
7/8th grade 8 – 9:20am
5/6th grade 9:30 – 10:50am
3/4th grade 11 – 12:20am
K-2 11am – 12pm
This is a indoor facility so sneakers are fine. We will have some loaner sticks and goggles but YOU MUST have a mouth guard. Assessments (starting week 3) group players of similar similar skill level and competition. Those who are new to the sport require different attention then those who have been playing longer. Even if your not trying for the advance team, please try to attend as many practices you can. The more touches a new player gets the faster they will grow.
For K2 there are no assessments but we will start the learning process.

Annandale Lacrosse is proud to announce we’ve received a Sportmanship Grant from US Lacrosse and the Positive Coaching Alliance for the 2014 Spring season! Through this grant AYL will receive two workshops hosted by PCA – one for our Annandale coaches and another for our parents.
In case you’re not familiar with the Positive Coaching Alliance, this organization is the nation’s leading non-profit devoted to creating positive, character-building youth sports experiences. When you consider that over 70% of youth athletes quit sports by the time their 13 because it just “isn’t fun anymore” it’s clear something needs to be done to re-adjust our priorities as youth athletics coaches and administrators. PCA’s motto is “Better Athletes, Better People” and we at Annndale Youth Lacrosse share their goals of encouraging competitive play that also allows our athletes to grow as people and teammates.
Time to REGISTER!
At Annandale Youth Lacrosse our motto is Practice Hard — Play Strong — Love Lacrosse. Join us for our 2014 Spring season and we’re convinced you’ll learn to love the nation’s fastest growing sport as much as we do!
