2023 Registration



Waterford Youth Lacrosse registration is now open through March 5, 2023. The registration for the 2023 season is $90. Late registrations will be accepted until March 11, 2023. All late registrations will be assessed a $20 late fee, and no additional registrations will be accepted after March 11, 2023. (This is to ensure all uniforms and team assignments can be made). All registrations will be done online via the WYLA web site. To register for the 2023 season click on the REGISTER NOW button on the right hand side of the page and follow the instructions. It is highly recommended that you use a computer to register and not a tablet or mobile device. 

The registration processes will require you to enter a valid US Lacrosse membership number for the league to receive insurance coverage for all players except for the Instructional level. You will be able to either renew or obtain a new US Lacrosse number as part of the registration process (a direct link to US Lacrosse will be provided, and additional guidance is on the WYLA web site).

Teams for the 2023 season will follow the guidelines set forth by US Lacrosse. The grouping will be: Instructional (K- Gr. 2), 10U (Gr. 3-4), 12U (Gr. 5-6), 14U (Gr. 7-8). Players in grade 2 will have the option of playing at the Instructional level or on the 10U team.

Please register your child for the appropriate age group according to guidelines set forth by US Lacrosse. Any required team adjustments will subsequently be made through the league, to align by grade level (ex. all 7th and 8th graders will play on the U14 team, even if age wise they register for the U12 team). Please refer to the placement policy under the document section for any other questions.

Upon completing the registration process you will be able to pay the registration fee on line or via a check. If paying by check please make all checks payable to WYLA.

All checks should be mailed to:
