GYL Statement on Player Commitment
In light of the tremendous growth of youth lacrosse, in particular the increasing number of playing options for elementary and middle school children in Greenwich, GYL is repeating here its standing policy on Player Commitment. In addition, US Lacrosse provides the following article, 5 Big Things Every Lacrosse Parent Should Know as guidance in raising your young athletes. 

GYL Statement on Player Commitment 

  • Participation on a GYL travel team requires enthusiasm, focus and 100% effort.
  • We expect that if you want to play on any GYL team (House League, Travel Academy or Travel) you will attend all practices and games in their entirety.  
  • In fairness to those players who do attend all practices and games, players who miss practices or games without good reason (school, religion, family or health) may lose playing time or their position on the team.
  • If you want to play on a GYL team and you also play another spring sport, we expect that you will make lacrosse your PRIORITY sport during the GYL spring season. 
  • Our expectation, on behalf of all boys and girls who want to play for GYL, is that you will attend all lacrosse events, even if there is a scheduling conflict with your other sport. 
  • Players who need to miss a practice or game for good reason must email or call their coach prior to the practice or game they will miss.
