On behalf of the GDYLL Board, I wanted to thank you for your part in what has turned out to be another great season of GD youth lacrosse!
Our girls' teams finished up last weekend, and our boys' teams wrap up their season this weekend in the Patriot Cup. GOOD LUCK BOYS!
We started April with FEET of snow still on the ground, wondering if we'd ever get the season started. Sure enough we did, and were treated to some of the best spring weather on record for our practices and games!
We'd like to extend a special thank you to our coaches, who committed countless hours of their time, with great passion and care, to teach our young athletes. You are all the backbone of this organization! Also, many thanks to the many parents who stepped up as team managers, snack coordinators, party planners, time keepers, carpool drivers, etc.
Before we all head off too deeply into the R&R of summer, we encourage you to share any feedback you might have that will enable us to continue to improve our program. All feedback is welcomed!
As an all-volunteer organization, we encourage parents to consider stepping up to help ensure our program continues to thrive and improve. We have lots of volunteer opportunities, including time commitments of just a few hours all the way to board of directors positions! WE NEED YOUR TALENTS AND ENERGY!
After taking a couple months off this summer, our awesome, hard-working board (Sarah Eisenklam, Michelle Walsh, Brendan Lowney, Connie Francis, Bob Mullins, Carrie Jiser, Kevin Broderick and DJ Caruso) will reconvene in late August to begin planning for our fall offerings and the Spring 2016 season.
With my son's "graduation" from youth sports, I'm excited to announce that our board has elected DJ Caruso to serve as the next president of GDYLL. With DJ and the other returning board members (and some new ones too!), great things are in store for the future of GD Youth Lax!
We wish you all a wonderful summer, and look forward to seeing your daughters and sons on the lacrosse fields for our Fall 2015 and Spring 2016 programs!
Outgoing president, GDYLL
Cap on Family Registration Fees
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.
