Registration for the 2017 Season is Open as of 10/31/16

 
We expect to close registrations on December 31, 2016.  

Due to the limited number of coaches available, we do not expect to have more than two teams per division.  Provided that we have coaches available, we will form a team with a minimum of 17 players and we limit our teams to a maximum of 20 players.  

This is a volunteer driven league and we need volunteer coaches!  No experience is necessary!!  We will train you!!!  Many lacrosse coaches start out with no experience in coaching or playing.  Only requires two 1 to 1 ½ hour practices per week and  1 hour for the game on Saturdays. ALL HEAD COACHES CHILD'S REGISTRATION FEE WILL BE REFUNDED!!!!

Please be sure to submit your child's birth certificate (copy), proof of your US Lacrosse membership and a physical dated after May 2015 to ensure that your player is eligible to play lacrosse. All players must get or renew their own U S Lacrosse membership. Proof of current membership will be required at paperwork hand in before practice starts in January. 

We are looking for sponsors to offset our fundraising needs.  If you are interested in sponsoring our league, please contact us at lacrosse@pbgyaa.com

If you are interesting in being a coach, please fill out the Volunteer portion located in the website upon registering your son or daughter and send an email to us at Lacrosse@pbgyaa with what division you would like to coach and your level of experience (e.g. you have played the sport, coached etc...).  No experience is necessary!!  We will train you!!! ALL HEAD COACHES CHILD'S REGISTRATION FEE WILL BE REFUNDED!!!!

NON Resident IMPORTANT. The question on the nonresident fee is confusing. We will re word it when we can, however...PLEASE CHECK YOUR CHARGED AMOUNT BEFORE PAYING>>if you are being charged the non resident fee in error. PLEASE do not continue. Either just pay the deposit or send me an email so we can get this sorted out. 

We expect to close registrations on December 31, 2016.

Glossary

 
         
 

Attack/Offense –
The offensive team.

Checking
Stick checking is the repeated tapping or a repeated push/pull motion of a defender's stick in an attempt to dislodge the ball from the ball carrier's stick.

Clear
A pass usually coming from the goalie to advance the ball from the defensive end of the field to the offensive end of the field.

Crease / Goal Circle
The circle with a 9 foot radius that surrounds the goal; this is the home of the goal keeper and certain rules apply about who can enter the goal circle and when.

Critical scoring area
The area around and behind the goal (usually 15 square yards in front of the goal and 10 square yards behind the goal) where the attack attempts to execute plays to score goals. This space is also used in the evaluation of shooting space.

Cutting
The movement of a player to get free from an opponent so one may have enough clear space to receive a pass from a teammate, or creates free space for another teammate to move into.

Defense
The team not in possession of the ball, attempting to prevent the attack from scoring goals.

Extra man offense
The offensive unit's numerical advantage that results from at least one member of the opposite team serving time in the penalty box.

Fast break
A team's attempt to gain a numerical advantage over their opponent by moving the ball quickly down the field as a team by running and passing it towards the goal .

Feed
A pass to a teammate in scoring position

Goal line extended
An imaginary line that extends from the either side of the goal line to the sidelines of the field.

Hole
The area immediately outside of the crease in front of the goal

Man down defense
The defensive unit that is outnumbered by at least one player as the result of one or more of its players serving time in the penalty box.

“One pass away”
A offensive or defensive player is defined as “one pass away” when they are the offensive or defensive player (marking the offensive player who is also “one pass away”) on either side of the player with the ball, and may be the next player to receive a pass or defend a pass from the ball carrier.

Slide
A move by a defender to leave one player to mark a more dangerous opponent.

“X”
The area directly behind goal.
