Boys Lacrosse Information
InformationUpdated Sunday December 17, 2017 by Adam Miller.
Boys Lacrosse is a Spring sport in Oak Ridge. Registration for the Spring 2018 season is now OPEN. The cost is $195.00 and all players MUST be active members of US Lacrosse at an annual fee of $35.00. To join US Lacrosse please go to http://www.uslacrosse.org and select Oak Ridge Youth Association as your program.
Teams will consist of no more than 22 players. Once the initial team is full, a waiting list will be formed. Teams are based on the age of the player in grouping of U7 players (players less than 7 years old), U9, U11, U13 and U15. The system will place you in the proper age group based on the birthdate you enter. All requests to play up an Age group must be sent to the Director of Lacrosse at Adam@ORYA.org. Please send an email with request and reason for request to play up.
Most teams practice twice a week in the evenings behind Oak Ridge Elementary School and will begin in early February. Games begin on the first Saturday in March. Expect to have two games each Saturday from the begining of March through the first week in May (except for the weekeds of Spring Break and Easter). Exact dates and times for practices and games will be communicated by your son's coach.
Below is a complete list of equipment your player will need by the first day of practice. ORYA has a limited amount of rental equipment available for first time players and is on a first come first serve basis. All players will need to purchase their own lacrosse stick, cleats, athletic cup, and mouth guard.
Please feel free to contact Adam@ORYA.org if you have any additional questions or if you are interested in coaching a team.
