The FLYL fourth grade program is designed to enhance player development and lacrosse fundamentals. Particular emphasis will be on improving lacrosse skills, overall team concepts, and understanding the rules of the game. The program is designed to improve player development and seeks to instill confidence, sportsmanship, as well as enjoyment and respect for the game of lacrosse. The fourth-grade program will include home and away games against neighboring youth programs. The general understanding is that kids are still trying different sports, however practice and game participation is expected. The number of teams will depend upon the number of girls that register.

Eye Guards - Protective eyewear use is required in girls' lacrosse and must meet the current ASTM standard, F3077-17. (There must be marking on both the packaging and product that states that the eyewear conforms to ASTM standard F3077.)
Sticks - We have found having the appropriate stick is essential in the development of our young players. We strongly recommend all players purchase and play with a stick that has current technology, with a ready to play optimal pocket for quick release and easy catching capabilities.
Mouth-guards - Approved mouthguards are required for all games and practices.
Goalie Chest Protectors - Effective 1/1/21, all goalie chest protectors must be designed for lacrosse and meet the NOCSAE performance standard, ND200. (FLYL will have one chest protector per team equipment bag, but if your daughter has ambition to play goalie, we do recommend that you purchase one specifically for your daughter).
UNIFORMS - are required for girls' 3rd grade through 8th grade. *We have new uniforms this year. All players must purchase a jersey and shorts through the website.
