GYL 5th- 8th grade Evaluation Information Letter to Parents

October 11th, 2017

Parents,

 

Greeley Youth Lacrosse Association (GYLA) is pleased to announce the kickoff of our Spring 2018 Lacrosse season. Every year Lacrosse continues to become more popular and our registration enrollment gets progressively larger. The GYLA Board of Directors is very excited to provide you with quality girls and boys youth programs that are specifically designed to assist player development regardless of their individual skill level. 

 

We will continue to build our programs with assistance from 3D coaches during our Spring practice season. Winter clinics will continue to be offered on an individual basis at Athletes Warehouse in Pleasantville. Finally, the Board is committed to hiring knowledgeable, qualified lacrosse coaches to assist in the development of our players, while building an enjoyable, collaborative lacrosse community to support our youth programs.

 

The first phase of our Spring season is to conduct player evaluations for players (both girls and boys) who are registering to play on teams for Grades 5 and older. The evaluations will allow us to properly assess their current skill level when determining our travel teams.

 

In order to be evaluated, you must have registered on the GYL website for the Spring season. To properly complete your registration you will be required to have a current U.S Lacrosse membership and have paid your registration fees. Our website will walk you through all the steps to properly complete the registration process.

 

There are governing principals that GYLA continues to support that we expect our lacrosse community to embrace for the upcoming season. Please review our Guiding Principles. 

 

Guiding Principles

  • Every player interested in playing travel lacrosse must be evaluated prior to being placed on a travel roster.

 

  • Lacrosse should be your number one sport for the Spring season. If you expect to have reasonable playing time on the team, then you are expected to attend every practice and game scheduled, except for school and family reasons.

 

  • GYL will have a minimum of 1-2 professional evaluators along with parent volunteers who will do their best to evaluate each player.  Parent volunteers will not evaluate their own teams or players.

 

  • We ask that all parents respect the decisions of the selectors and not interfere with the process. Players, coaches and parents are asked to sign a commitment letter and Code of Conduct. It asks you to make lacrosse your priority in the Spring. It also asks you to be respectful towards one another.

 

 

 

 

  • Stress Free Zone -- Parents and spectators are not allowed to observe the process.

 

  • Please arrive early, evaluations start promptly. All players will be required to wear all required lacrosse equipment (helmet, shoulder pads, elbow pads, gloves). Bring your GYL practice pinney or team jersey.
