Shrewsbury Youth Lacrosse (SYL) - Massachusetts

It's Always Lacrosse Season!

Shrewsbury Boys' Youth Lacrosse (SYL) promotes the game of lacrosse, sportsmanship, teamwork and athleticism.  We welcome players of all abilities.  Our goal is to teach our kids the proper skills, along with training and conditioning, so they get a full understanding of the game, and they develop a life-long love for lacrosse!  We play all of our kids equally in our Town/Classic program, regardless of skills and experience, in order to nurture their participation in this great game and to provide a positive experience for all involved.  As part of the Mass Bay Youth Lacrosse League (MBYLL), there are no scores or standings kept and no championships awarded.  We have found this creates a great environment to develop players of all abilities in a sport which is new to most.

MBYLL is resurrecting the Tour Team of MBYLL and opening our application process for a special tournament in Orlando Florida (November 30th – December 2nd) followed by an optional Theme Park Day on Monday December 3rd. There would be a handful of practices in the fall at centralized locations leading up to the two-day tournament. These practices will also include special team-building exercises and (lacrosse) educational components.


All MBYLL athletes who were born between 09/01/04 and 8/31/08 are eligible to participate so long as they are not in high school in the 2018-2019 season.


Once we receive all our applications (due by July 31st), we will ask the town programs to help nominate and recommend applicants, of which roughly 100 per level will receive an official invitation to attend one of two tryouts. There will be a $25 tryout fee to cover the costs of pinnies, equipment, personnel, and field rentals. If selected, the $25 will be credited to the players for their team fee. Tryouts will last 90-minutes, will be run by professional lacrosse evaluators, and the final team will be built by an impartial selection committee and the team announced on (or before) September 1st.


There will be a team participation fee of $500 (potentially less if the league can obtain sponsorship). The fee would include the tournament fee, insurance, uniform, shooter shirt, and team helmet. The fee would NOT include travel and accommodations (airfare, hotel room, rental cars, optional theme park ticket). MBYLL is working to secure a block of rooms at the Omni Championsgate Resort (site of the tournament) with rooms for approximately $170 / night. Airfare fluctuates and most Orlando theme park tickets are around $100 / day.

Ground balls win games!!

game winning GB

Jack Peters fights for and ultimately wins this GB, allowing him to kill the clock and preserve the victory for the u15 Select team.


This is a great example of the importance of Ground Balls.  GB's = posession.  Posession = scoring opp and time kills.  High school and college track GB's as a key stat during games (long poles LOVE this stat!) Shrewsbury Lax=GB's.  Nice job, Jack and team.
