Registration for WYLA



Waterford Youth Lacrosse registration is now open through Feb. 26, 2019.  The registration for the 2019 season is $90.  Late registrations will be accepted until March 6, 2019.  All late registrations will be assessed a $20 late fee, and no additional registrations will be accepted after March 7, 2019. (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 2019 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 2019 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 wil 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 via Pay Pal or via a check.  If paying by check please make all checks payable to WYLA.
All checks should be mailed to:
WYLA Treasurer
Steve Smith
16 Edgewood Ave

US Lacrosse Number

A Few Additional Tips on Registering Relative to Your US Lacrosse Number
All players for the 2018 season will need a valid US Lacrosse number.  Each US Lacrosse number is only valid for one year and this will provide insurance coverage to the league. 

  1. Obtaining a US Lacrosse number is part of the registration process,
  2. When you come to this step (should be page 2) you will need to click on the button that says go to USA Lacrosse to obtain a membership.
  3. Your web browser will open a new window and you will be directed to US lacrosse, follow the steps to obtain a new or renew your current US Lacrosse number. 
  4. Once you have paid for your US Lacrosse membership, there will be a green button at the top of the page that says return to Waterford Lacrosse Website (This is a much clearer and easier process then it was last year).
  5. Click this button to return to the Waterford Lacrosse Website to complete the registration process.
  6. You will complete your registration process, and your US Lacrosse number will be automatically updated.
