Youth Lacrosse

Bison Lacrosse Club youth lacrosse competes in the CYLA (Colorado Youth Lacrosse Association) against other teams in the greater Denver/Front Range area. We offer a fun and energetic environment for players of all skill levels to learn and excel at the sport of lacrosse. Whether you are picking up a stick for the first time or looking to grow as a youth player, we believe every participant deserves an opportunity to succeed in every practice and every game. There are 3 levels of play based on experience that the CYLA offer, Blue is recreation/beginner, White is intermediate, and Red for elite/competitive.  As we currently are building our program, we primarily have blue teams and are looking to grow to have white and eventually red level teams. We offer full spring and fall programs. 

Bison Lacrosse Club and the CYLA play by mens/boys lacrosse rules and protective equipment, however all youth players are welcome to participate. Players are expected to provide their own equipment which includes, stick, helmet, shoulder pads, colored mouth guard (no clear mouth guards), arm/elbow pads, gloves, protective cup for all boys, and cleats. If you need help acquiring equipment, please contact us at info@bisonlaxclub.com. We have limited used loaner equipment available that can help new players try out the sport without a significant upfront cost. If you prefer to purchase equipment, we can help with locating inexpensive equipment. CYLA offers programs for players from U7 (1st) through U15 (8th grade). We practice in the north Commerce City/Brighton area, with games played at various locations around the greater Denver metro/Front Range region. We can play away games as far south as Colorado Springs and as far north as Fort Collins/Windsor.  

*Players who are already in high school are not eligible to play, regardless of age. Players who are still in 8th grade are eligible to play in the U15 age group, regardless of age.

Welcome back! Before registering, please read through verify the following information!

-Please make sure your player's uniform still fits and all pieces are accounted for (game jersey, shooter shirt, and shorts). If your uniform still fits and you have all the pieces, there is no need to purchase a new one. If you need a new uniform, you will be able to purchase one for $60 during registration. If you order a new uniform, you will receive a new practice pinnie. If you are not ordering a new uniform but need a new practice pinnie, they will be available for purchase for $5 at the first practice (if you know your player will need a new practice pinnie, please email info@bisonlaxclub.com with the size you will need to be sure we order enough in the correct sizes).

-Your player's US Lacrosse membership will be validated during registration. Please make sure the membership is valid through the end of the 2020 spring season. If it expires prior to the end of the season, you must renew it before registering. TeamSnap will not allow you to continue registration if the membership is not valid for the entirety of the season!

New Players:

Welcome! This is an exciting year for Bison Lacrosse Club! We recently received a grant from US Lacrosse which allows us to give the first 30 brand-new registrants a free one-year US Lacrosse membership, along with a free stick (if your player does not already have one)! To be eligible, your player cannot have been previously registered with US Lacrosse. Unfortunately, due to this stipulation, we cannot offer this free membership to those who already have a US Lacrosse number (if your player already has a US Lacrosse number, you will need to renew their membership through US Lacrosse).

 

New players will need to purchase a Bison Lacrosse Club uniform for $60. If you are interested in used uniforms, please e-mail info@bisonlaxclub.com for availability before registering). Uniforms run a little big so please keep this in mind when selecting a size during registration. The uniform includes a game jersey, shooter shirt, and shorts, as well as practice pinnie.                                                                                      

All players are expected to provide their own equipment which includes a helmet, shoulder pads, elbow pads, gloves, stick, colored mouth guard (no clear mouth guards), protective cup for boys, and cleats. We realize this is an extensive, and expensive, list for those who are trying out lacrosse for the first time, so we have a limited number of full sets of loaner gear available for new players. Please e-mail us at info@bisonlaxclub.com if you are interested in loaner gear for the 2020 spring season. Loaner gear is provided on a first come first served basis, based on completed registration.

We look forward to having you join our Bison Lacrosse Club family! To register, click here
