BYL 1st Stick Night
To register for 1st Stick Night, click on the “Online Registration” tab above.
BYL invites future first time players in grades K-8 to come and participate in a lacrosse demonstration. Each player will receive a free stick and ball. Please note that if a player chooses to keep the free stick, the expectation is that they will then register to participate in a BYL lacrosse program this coming Spring 2019.
With the holidays fast approaching Branford Youth Lacrosse is getting into the Christmas Spirit! Please join us as we fundraise for the 2019 Lacrosse Season by selling everyone's favorite decoration, Christmas Wreathes!
Wreathes are only $20 and you are encouraged to sell to anyone who would like one. The wreathes are 22".
Players, parents, friends and family are all able to participate.
Incentive: Any player who sells 10 wreathes or more will receive a free "Tech Tee Shirt" before the 2019 Regular Season. 2 Shirts for 20 wreathes, etc.
Proceeds will go to Branford Youth Lacrosse to help recruit qualified coaches and reserve indoor field space when outdoor fields are unavailable.
When: Due to production and availability reasons, the time frame for our fundraiser will be relatively short. Order forms must be submitted by Sunday November 7th. Wreath Pickup will be Sunday November 18th, right before Thanksgiving. Pickup location is TBD.
Simply fill out the attached order form electronically or by hand and send to
. Cash or check only, please make checks payable to Branford Youth Lacrosse. You may pay in person during wreath pickup.

All registrations to Spring 2018 BYL programs are required to be done through this website. Additionally, each participant is required to have a renewed US Lacrosse membership ($30).
Mid-way through this online BYL registration you will be redirected to the USL website (where you can pay online for the USL renewal). You will then be redirected back to the BYL website to complete the BYL registration (and separately pay online for BYL). Please note that if you owe an amount to BYL for not returning a 2017 uniform, payment for this will need to be included. Your full owed balance to BYL will show up at the last step of online registration.
BYL Boys parents - we will be placing the helmet order next week (by Fri, 11/10). If you are interested in ordering a helmet, but have not yet conveyed so with an email, please contact Niall Ferguson by this Friday, 11/3 at or 203-823-8147 if you are interested.
Then at the beginning of the approaching week, we will send out an email to those that expressed interest. This email will include payment details and you will need to confirm your interest in purchasing a helmet.
Based on initial interest as of now, it looks like the order will be in the 12-23 quantity, so the price will likely be $196 including tax and shipping ($184 pre-tax).

Custom Cascade R Helmet
Through Lacrosse Unlimited Team Sales, we have designed a custom Cascade R helmet for Branford Youth Lacrosse that can be purchased by players/families in the program.There are 2 things that are great about this opportunity:1) the design is unique/cool and 2) the cost is significantly less than it would cost you to buy a standard Cascade R in a store or online.
Below is the design of the helmet.There will also be a custom red hornet logo decal facing forward on each side of the helmet.
Red Hornet Logo that will be on each side of helmet:
Large Cost Savings
Not only is it a unique custom design, but the cost to purchase the helmet is substantially lower than the cost for a person to individually purchase a standard Cascade R helmet on their own.In an actual store or online, the basic pre-tax price to purchase a Cascade R helmet is $250 - $280 (depending on color face mask).
Below is the cost breakdown for the custom BYL Cascade R.The final cost will depend on the number of helmets ordered.This price does not include tax, but does include shipping.
12-23 Helmets: $183.00
24-49 Helmets: $175.00
50-79 Helmets: $168.00
BYL is not earning any $ on this and passing on all cost savings to players/families.Please contact Niall Ferguson at or 203-823-8147 if you are interested.You are committing to nothing by expressing interest.Once we get a sense for the number of helmets based on interest, we will provide a final cost quote to you.

BYL is making a focused effort to move away from using parents as coaches of the travel teams. Going forward, the goal is to have paid non-parent coaches (with relevant, qualified experience) coaching the travel teams. The realistic objective is to hopefully have paid non-parent coaches in place across a large number of the travel teams for Boys and Girls this Spring 2017.
While BYL will be paying coaches, we have not raised the registration fees to accomplish this. Instead, BYL is changing the uniform policy for travel teams. Historically, players kept their game jersey and shorts at the end of the season and new uniforms were ordered each season. Approximately $80-85 of each travel team registration fee went to uniform cost. Going forward, at the end of the season players will return their uniforms to BYL. The uniforms will be washed, repackaged, and kept in inventory for the next year by Achieve Athletics (and every 3-4 years the uniforms will be replaced with a new design). By doing this, BYL will now be able to utilize a large portion of the registration fee that had been going to uniform purchase costs and use it to hire paid non-parent coaches.
As mentioned above, in order to be able to pay non-parent coaches, players will no longer receive their game uniforms to keep. Several families have inquired if they can purchase a uniform to keep. This is fine and can be coordinated with Achieve Athletics. If you would like to do this, when you go to Achieve Athletics to get your uniform size selected (which all BYL players on travel teams must do), please convey to Tom White that you would like to purchase a uniform and you will be charged separately by Achieve Athletics.
Note for new young boys players (~4th grade and younger):
Most retailers (store & online) offer “starter packages” for the first time player that include all the necessary gear including Lacrosse Helmet, Shoulder Pads, Elbow Pads, Lacrosse Gloves, and Lacrosse Stick. Online and at stores, you will find that most of these “starter packages” sell for roughly $180. Lacrosse Unlimited has these types of packages.
