Shrewsbury Youth Lacrosse (SYL) - Massachusetts

  • REGISTER FOR SPRING 2018 SEASON NOW!  Spots are filling up quickly, so don't wait until it's too late.
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 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.

Spring 2018 Registration Closing Soon!!

Attention Shrewsbury Families of 1st through 8th grade boys:

Think Spring!  Shrewsbury Youth Lacrosse (SYL) is proud to begin its 18th year of teaching the game of lacrosse, respecting our sport, respecting one another and having fun!  Registration for our 2018 spring season is now open here and will continue until December.  As always, we encourage players of any ability to join us for an exciting new season of lacrosse.

Registration is open to 1st thru 8th grade boys who live in the town of Shrewsbury.  We field teams in the U9 (Grades 1 & 2), U11 (Grades 3 & 4), U13 (Grades 5 & 6) and U15 (Grades 7 & 8) divisions.  No experience is required.  The cost is $220 per player, which does not include the cost of equipment.  A credit card is required to sign up.  Starting this year, there is a new 2-step registration process that requires registration with Mass Bay Youth Lacrosse League (MBYLL, our parent league) in order to register with SYL. Start the registration process at the SYL website. You will then be redirected to the MBYLL site where you will register and acquire a member number which is required to finish registering with SYL

There are no try-outs and teams will be evenly organized and balanced.  We field all players as equally as possible with the goal of teaching the sport of lacrosse and providing a fun experience for everyone involved.  We play an 8-game schedule against surrounding towns and the season ends with a Jamboree at Fort Devens in June.

The season runs from March through early June.  Indoor practices will start after February vacation and games will start as soon as we are allowed on the fields in April.  Games are typically played on Sunday and practices are during the week.

Our league is growing fast and we are always looking for people to help with coaching and administrative duties, so please contact us at if you’d like to volunteer.  We’ve had some excellent coaches and helpers over the years that have never played lacrosse, so don’t let it stop you if you're new to the sport!

Important – Timely registration is critical since we need to register our teams with MBYLL in December for the 2018 Spring season.  Thank You for Your Support!  Please help us spread the word by telling your friends and neighbors about our program.
