The guiding principle of the GDYLL program is that it is "all about the kids." That means maximizing fun, learning the sport of lacrosse, and reinforcing important life lessons.
As obvious an intention that might be, we parents and coaches sometimes lose sight of that. Not intentionally, of course, but because sometimes our adult perspectives interfere with our ability to see things from the kids' perspective.
The GDYLL Board wanted to share a great article to help us all stay focused on the kids. Please take the time to give this a quick read. And we're always open to feedback as to how we can deliver the best possible experience for the kids in our program.
Please note that there has been a recall of Cascade "R" and Warrior Regulator helmets. If your son has a Cascade "R" helmet or Warrior Regulator helmet please go to the link below for additional information on how to get the issue resolved:
If a family registers 4 or more children with GDYLL in the MBGLL, PYLL and/or the MYSLL programs, the registration fees for the 4th and all subsequent children will be waived. This will not include Stick League, Tournament teams or any uniform and equipment fees. Given that the registration fees vary for these programs, the fee waived will be the more expensive of the four registrations. For example, if three children are registered in the MBGYLL or PYLL programs and the fourth child makes a MYSLL team, the family will not be charged for the MYSLL program fee (the more expensive fee).
This will involve a refund process as we won’t know what program your children will be participating in until after the try-outs for the MYSLL teams.
