Overview:

Spring is the primary season for lacrosse, and that is why the Intermountain Lacrosse Youth League offers an extended season, a multi-division structure, and playoffs during its spring seasons. All teams in the Intermountain Lacrosse Youth Leagues play an 8 game regular season, with the possibility to extend their season into the playoffs! (more details on league specific post-season play below). Games will primarily take place on Saturdays between 9:00 AM and 4:00 PM, with the exception of 1-2 weeknight games in the final two weeks of the season. At the 5th - 8th grade levels teams are NOT ALLOWED to practice more than 3 times per week (7 day span), and a single practice may not exceed 2 hours. At the K-4th grade levels teams are NOT ALLOWED to practice more than 2 times per week.

*Practice times, dates, locations, and schedules are the responsibility of each individual program and coach* 

*ALL game schedules are created and distributed by the Intermountain Lacrosse Staff *

 

 

League Breakdown:

The Intermountain Lacrosse Youth Leagues are grade based leagues, meaning the appropriate league a player is eligible to play for in a given season is determined by what grade the player is currently enrolled in for that season, and not determined by a players age. The breakdown of the leagues are as follows:

7th/8th League: All players enrolled in the 7th or 8th grade.

5th/6th: All players enrolled in the 5th and 6th grade. 

3rd/4th: All players enrolled in the 3rd and 4th grade.

2nd/3rd: All players enrolled in 2nd and 3rd grade.

K/1st: All players enrolled in Kindergarten and 1st grade.

  • New Spring 2019 - New structure for K-4th grade to better account for player development and trying to minimize the age and developmental gap between players by offering a 3rd division (2nd/3rd) and restructering K-2nd to K/1 only
    • This will allow more options for coaches and programs to structure their teams comprised of players in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grades into two separate and distinct divisions based on age/grade, and minimizing the developmental gap within teams as well as each of the two divsions.
