The ABGYL Mission:

 

ABGYL is a recreational program whose mission is to promote quality lacrosse for girls grades K through eight. We strive to create an environment that emphasizes fun while developing skills, teamwork and good sportsmanship. When assembling teams within an age grouping, ABGYL balances the squads so that each team is equal in skill level. While matches are officiated, scores are not recorded during games and standings are not maintained. Each team has at least two AB high school girl lacrosse players who assist the adult coaches.

 

Spring 2019 Girls Youth Lacrosse Season

Dear Parents and Players,

Welcome to the 2019 Spring Season of Acton Boxboro Girl’s Youth Lacrosse!  We wanted to share some general information and reminders about the spring season.

Teams

Teams will be announced in mid-March. The 5/6 and 7/8 age groups will each have only one team.

Uniforms

Uniforms will be available in March, keep an eye out for further announcements.

Pre-Season

We have one more indoor preseason session.  It is not mandatory, but we ask you to try to make it if you can. There is no tryout but we will use the first couple of sessions to evaluate the girls capabilities so that we can create balanced teams.   

The remaining preseason schedule is as follows:

Sunday, March 24th - Teamworks Turf 1 (Acton)

Grades Times
3rd & 4th 2pm - 3pm
5th & 6th 3pm - 4pm
7th & 8th 4pm - 5pm

 

Practices

Grades 3-8 will practice on Wednesday evenings from 6:00-7:30 at the High School Lower Fields.  The 7/8s will move to Leary starting on 4/3. We would like girls to arrive at 5:50 so that everyone is ready to go when our field time begins at 6:00.  Grades 1 & 2 will Practice on Thursday nights at the Lower Fields. 


2nd weekly practices will always be held at Lower Fields and will be held at the discretion of the coaches, currently the schedule is as follows:

Monday 6:00 - 7:30pm Grades 3 & 4
Thursday 6:00 - 7:30pm Grades 5 & 6
Saturday 8:30 - 10:00am Grades 7 & 8

 

Outdoor practices are scheduled to start the week of March 25th, weather permitting.  We may go outside sooner if the weather cooperates.

Games

Games are played on Sundays between noon and 6pm.  All home games are played at the Lower Turf Fields or Leary Field at Acton Boxborough Regional High School. We will be posting the game schedule soon. 

 

Equipment

Girls lacrosse use the following equipment: Goggles, Stick, Mouth Piece (Cannot be White or Clear), Cleats (can use sneakers since most of our games are on Turf), Water Bottle and a smile! 

Girls are not allowed to wear any jewelry including earrings. Referees will make the girls remove their earrings regardless of when they got their ears pierced, so if your daughter wants to get her ears pierced please please please refrain until the season is over.  

Equipment can be purchased at Hit the Net in Acton, Brine's in Concord/Sudbury or ComLax in Burlington.

A quick reminder that ABGYL is an all volunteer organization and we are always looking for parent volunteers!  Please contact Steve or Kate Myers at steve.myers@iracing.com or katemyers06@gmail.com for further information. Time commitment is minimal!
