You should have heard from your coaches and be receiving emails about the player evaluations and practices. Rosters are being finalized this week for all levels if you have not already been told which team you are on you will know by Friday.
The game schedule should be posted in a couple of weeks but all teams should be starting league play by March 24th.
Braddock Road Lacrosse will be fielding teams for both Boys and Girls ages 6 thru 15. All Boys teams for the Northern Virginia Youth Lacrosse League have now complied with US Lacrosse Association policy and have established 4 age levels of play based upon player age by August 31, 2017:
There has been a slight modification for the 2018 Spring season. The NVYLL boys’ divisions will follow the US Lacrosse age segmentation guidelines as shown below.
8U: All players must be born between 9/1/2009 and 8/31/2011
10U: All players must be born between 9/1/2007 and 8/31/2009
12U: All players must be born between 9/1/2005 and 8/31/2007
14U: All players must be born between 9/1/2003 and 8/31/2005
For the most part this will create teams in the following grade breakdowns:
8U will now be mostly 1st and 2nd graders;
10U will now be mostly 3rd and 4th graders;
12U will now be mostly 5th and 6th graders;
14U will now be mostly 7th and 8th graders.
Kindergarten players wil be accepted based on a case by case basis.
For those 8th graders who fall outside of the age breakdown for 14u those players will still be allowed to play on an NVYLL club team.

2017 Fall Clinic - open to all from K to 14u. the 8u group will be limited to a 1 hour session as we have found that the attention span does not go much past that and we will have a 1 to 4 ratio of instructors to players for this age group, players can stay longer if desired and work with he older group.
The 10u though 14u clinic will consist of 5 -2 Hour sessions.
The clinics will be starting on September 24th and taking place on Sunday afternoon so it doesn't conflict with many of the Fall sports.
Primary focus will be on developing better stick skills, dodging, passing, and shooting. Understanding the defensive concepts and offensive concepts to make you a better player. Learning how to throw effective checks while maintaining good balance and keeping a good defensive posture.
