Youth Program Websites
The Delaware Youth Lacrosse Association was established in 1993 to serve the lacrosse needs of boys and girls in grades 1 through 8. Since our humble beginnings, DYLA has grown today to nearly 600 athletes playing on 30 teams throughout the First State -- and we continue to grow each year.
DYLA will provide a safe and enjoyable environment for your child to learn the game of lacrosse. Our coaches will teach skills and rules appropriate for each age group and insure playing time for ALL athletes in games and scrimmages.
Our teams are comprised of boys and girls in four divisions. Pinball Division 8 years & under, Midget Division 10 years & under, Junior 12 years & under and our Senior Division of athletes 14 & under.
Our coaches have played lacrosse at the high school, collegiate and/or club level. DYLA try's to attract coaches to our programs who possess the same ideals as DYLA.
DYLA depends on the support of parents. We need parents to make sure that their athletes arrive to practice sessions and games on time. Parents are also needed to help with game refreshments -- such as oranges -- be available to carpool to away games, and many other important support functions. If parents are interested in becoming a youth lacrosse coaches or referees contact your local team representative for more information.
All league games will be played on Sunday afternoons beginning in March and conclude at the end of May.
