Welcome to Greeley Youth Lacrosse, the fastest game in town!
“Greeley Youth Lacrosse is a privately funded youth lacrosse organization whose mission is to provide girls and boys youth lacrosse programs that inspire participation while protecting the integrity of the game and to provide the New Castle community with the opportunity to participate in the game of lacrosse.We strive to help players develop their skills in a safe and fun environment while placing higher value on sportsmanship and learning, rather than solely on winning. Through positive and effective leadership, we hope to provide every child the opportunity to discover, learn, participate and develop a love and passion for the game of Lacrosse.”
We have great new spiritwear this year, including shorts, t-shirts and Sweatshirts (sweatshirt quality is significantly upgraded from last year). All Spiritwear is strictly OPTIONAL - proceeds from the Spiritwear store go to support the Greeley Youth Lacrosse program.

If anyone is interested in windsuits, these are ordered from a different online store (different vendor). Jackets and pants are sold separately.
Teams are now completed for Winter Box Lacrosse at Chelsea Piers in Stamford. This program is parent run. Box Lacrosse replaced the “Winter Ultra” lacrosse we previously joined at the Brewster Sports Center for two reasons: Box Lacrosse is a better player development opportunity and we have found it is easier for people to commit when there are set times.
Box Lacrosse focuses on developing stick skills with the focus on stick protection and pinpoint passing and shooting. This fast-paced style of lacrosse is the best way to improve stick skills quickly. Box lacrosse is 5v5 non-stop action; balls are played off the weighted curtains and goals are quickly cleared so that the action never stops.
