Youth Lacrosse League Stucture & Breakdown
*This page contains general information about all of our different youth lacrosse leagues for boys (K-8th Grade)*
General: 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 enrolled in during that season, and not neccesarily determined by a players age. The breakdown of the leagues are as follows:
7th/8th: 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.
K-2nd: All players enrolled in Kindergarten through 2nd grade.
*Pre-K are permitted with prior parental consent & league approval
Fall Season vs. Spring Season:
Number of Games: 5 Game Fall Season vs. 8 game Spring Season
*Fall games are Saturdays ONLY in FALL, Teams may have 1-2 weeknight games in the spring*
Divisions: 5th-8th Grade leagues are further divided into multiple divisions, based on skill levels, in the SPRING ONLY
Post-season: There is no post-season play at any level in the fall. 5th-8th grade divisions have playoffs during the spring
What team/program should I register for?
The boys and girls youth leagues teams/programs largely stem down through the affiliated high school lacrosse programs. Players are to register, and eligible to play, for the team/program that corresponds to the public high school boundaries in which they live. If your school/area does not have a lacrosse program players are then placed on the next closest team/program in the league. You may contact the office if you have questions about the next closest program, and/or visit the "team pages" section of the website to view all of the current teams/programs in each league (use the 3 dropdown menus to select (1) season (2) league/age-group (3)team/program)
US Lacrosse Membership: ALL players must have a current and valid US Lacrosse membership in order to participate in any league activities (practice and/or games). These are 1 year memberships that act as secondary insurance for any injuries incurred during team lacrosse activities. A palyers membership may not expire until after the end date of any given season. Note: membership includes a 12 month, monthly, subscription to Lacrosse Magazine!
