For Spring 2014, the Sandy Spring Athletic Association will field teams in four different age levels including U-15 (Junior Boys), U-13 (Midget Boys), U-11 (Lightning Boys and Girls) and U-9 (both Tyker Boys and Tyker Girls). We also offer an instructional program to younger players ages 5 & 6 for both boys and girls. The U-11 through U-15 boys teams compete in the Maryland Youth Lacrosse Association (MYLA) for both new and experienced players at various locations throughout central Maryland. MYLA offers A, B and C divisions so there is a level for everyone. Whether we have multiple teams or not, we will place the teams in a division suitable to their skills.
Depending on the number of U-9 players, we may field teams both in MYLA and Howard County. The Howard County League is a great opportunity for both new players and those with a little experience to learn the game in a less competitive format. All games are played at Western Regional Park (approximately 20 minutes north of Olney right off of Rt. 97). MYLA offers A and B divisions at this level with home games at Cherrywood Park and some travel to Howard, Carroll and Baltimore Counties.
The girls teams will participate in the Howard County League. The U-9 girls will also play at Western Regional Park. For U-11 girls, they will play games at both Western Regional Park and in eastern Howard County.
All players will be evaluated and placed according to age, experience, and skills demonstrated. Practices normally begin in mid to late February or early March with games beginning in late March or early April.
