Westford Youth Lacrosse is dedicated to teaching teamwork, providing healthy exercise and developing creative problem-solving skills. Through our integrated programs, we provide a fun, recreational and instructional environment for young lacrosse players, fostering a love of the sport. Our program provides learning for all levels by providing great lacrosse experiences for all the boys and girls in the program regardless of skill level. We welcome all new and returning players at any grade, age or skill level.
Unfortunately, we will need to cancel the Spring 2020 season for both the girls and boys programs. It is with great disappointmentthat we need to make this decision. Both leagues were trying hard to preserve some of the season, but it is just not possible to do that and maintain a safe environment for the players, coaches, refs, and parents.
For our 8th graders, we are sorry you had to miss your last season in youth lacrosse. Youth sports is a great opportunity to play and have fun with friends. We hope you remember the good times and the positive experiences gained while playing lacrosse and take those to the next level. We hope you all try to continue your lacrosse career and play for Westford Academy next year.
With the cancellation of the season, WYL is working on the refund policy. We will try to have an update on the refund amount as well as distribute the funds shortly. Please keep in mind that although WYL is a volunteer organization, we have costs to maintain the program during the year. We are exploring all options for refunds.
Both MBYLL and Founders are considering alternative options to play lacrosse this year. WYL will work with both leagues to see about options for summer or fall opportunities to play lacrosse. Nothing has been determined at this time, but we will keep you informed as plans are made.
WYL thanks everyone for their patience during this challenging time. I know we all want to be on the lacrosse field playing and cheering, and we will be in the future. For now, please encourage your player to keep a stick in their hands and continue to sharpen their skills. Lets hit the ground running once it is safe to do so!
