To participate players must be no older than 8 on September 1st 2017 for TYKER. Program questions can be directed to Jessica Altmann at jessaltmann@yahoo.com

Below is a very detailed email, that will explain the following about the extended season: 
1) Our goal 
2) The program 
3) The next steps 

OUR GOAL 
The mission is to expand the Catonsville Girl's Lacrosse Club, by creating a cost effective and comprehensive expanded program that utilizes the preexisting CLC backbone. It is our goal for our girls to play, learn and grow with their friends in the community. We are focused on four core values: 

2018 Boys Extended Program Tryouts

Catonsville Boys Lacrosse Families,

This past lacrosse season, the Boys Lightning A and Tyker Travel team experimented with extended play. For the Tyker travel team, this meant more intense and directed practices as well as play in multiple end of season tournaments. For the Lightning A team, this meant participation in both the MYLA Saturday league as well as the Sunday HOCO Club league. The Lightning A team also participated in 3 end of season tournaments. I am pleased to announce that this new endeavor was a big success. For that reason, we will continue this program moving forward. Having said this, there will some changes to the program to better reflect the changing landscape of youth lacrosse.

Our Vision: To give parents and players an option to participate in competitive club lacrosse at a fraction of the cost and maintaining the community aspect of the sport.

Tyker Travel will still operate as a two-year team (second and third grade depending on birth date). For the older teams, the intention is that the teams that will participate in this extended program will be single year teams. This means that there will be a 4th grade team, a 5th grade team and a 6th grade team. You will need to register for try-outs.

Please go to the following links on the Catonsville Lacrosse Club site and follow the directions on how to register for try-outs. Please keep in mind that you are not registering for the upcoming season, just for try-outs.

Boy's Lightning/Tyker Extended Program

The Boy's Lightning/Tyker Extended Program tryouts will be held in the evenings of August 20th and August 27th. Exact time and location will be determined as soon as possible. We encourage you to attend both tryouts. Registering through the Catonsville Lacrosse website www.catonsvillelax.org is mandatory before attending tryouts. We encourage you to register as soon as possible. Lightning Players must be no older than 10 on September 1st 2016 and Tyker players must be no older than 8 on September 1st 2016.

The plan is to field one team in Lightning and Tyker in this expanded season.  Having said this, the number of teams participating in this expanded season will be determined based on the numbers and talent level of interested players.

The expanded season will work as follows:  In addition to the Saturday Maryland Youth Lacrosse Association (MYLA) recreation league that we have traditionally played in, these teams will also play in a Sunday league and several post season tournaments in the month of June.  Players will also be required to pay extra costs in addition to the normal registration fees. The additional cost will be strictly for league and tournament fees, there will be no profits taken by the club and coaches will not be paid.

Prior to tryouts, we?d like everyone to remember this program is intended for kids that love the game and take personal responsibility for making themselves better players. All practices, games and tournaments are mandatory with minimal exception for kids that accept a position on the team.  We encourage any boy in the Tyker or Lightning age group that meets those requirements to attend try outs.

2016 Catonsville Classic Lacrosse Tournament

The 2016 Catonsville Classic Lacrosse Tournament is scheduled for March 18-20th - mark your calendars!  More information to come, which will be posted to the Catonsville Classic page.
