New US Lacrosse Age groups

 

US Lacrosse New Age Segmentation

US Lacrosse has recommended the adoption of "Age-based segmentation" for associations instead of "Grade-based segmentation" starting in 2017.  In the past, MSLax has not been a proponent of changing to the "U" based system because it did not have a clear delineation between youth and high school.  There was always confusion about what to do with girls in ninth grade.  The new program is now a clear-cut division with 14U designated as youth and anything over 14U is high school.  Since we do not have enough girls for single-based levels (ie 10U, 11U, 12U, 13U, etc.) MSLax will follow the recommendation of using even-year grouping (i.e. 10U, 12U, 14U, etc.) that US Lacrosse recommends.

 

C3 Lacrosse Girls Age Levels for 2017 are as follows:

10U – Girls born between 9/1/2006 – 8/31/2008 (formerly 3rd-4th grade)

12U – Girls born between 9/1/2004 – 8/31/2006 (formerly 5th-6th grade)

14U – Girls born between 6/1/2002 – 8/31/2004 (formerly 7th-8th grade)

** 8th Graders born between June 1, 2002 and September 1, 2002 will be allowed to play U14.

 

US Lacrosse Age Verification

Similar to previous seasons, each player must be a registered member of US Lacrosse.  US Lacrosse membership information can be found on their website (uslacrosse.org). 

 

2017 C3 Lacrosse Boys Summer Program - Important Information

There are some significant changes coming in 2017 for our boys program. We felt it would be helpful to cover some of the changes, along with touching on guidelines used for creating teams, prior to registration. 

We are planning to open summer registration around January 21st. 

Age Segmentation
YLM has made the decision to adopt the recommended age segmentation guidelines set forth by US Lacrosse. This means C3 Lacrosse will offer teams for the following age groups: U8, U10, U12 and U14. Below is a table showing the birthdate range for each level.

 

2017 YLM AGE DIVISION SUMMARY

Team Formation
The intent of C3 will be to offer an “A” team at the U12 and U14 age groups. If there’s more than one (1) team at the U8 and U10 age groups, even teams will be created. The same goes for multiple “B” teams at the U12 and U14 age groups. C3 will hold player evaluations in March/April. 


US Lacrosse Age Verification
Similar to previous seasons, each player must be a registered member of US Lacrosse. US Lacrosse membership information can be found on their website (uslacrosse.org).


US Lacrosse has implemented changes to their age verification process for 2017.


Per US Lacrosse, “The US Lacrosse Age verification system supports the organization’s player segmentation policy, passed by its Board of Directors in January 2016. Player segmentation helps to ensure player safety, competitive fairness and a consistent experience for youth lacrosse.

  2. Click the button below and log into your USLacrosse.org account, not your child’s.
  3. Upload your scan or photo to USLacrosse’s online system.
  4. USLacrosse will review your documentation, record the birthdate in their system and then permanently delete your uploaded document.
  5. You’ll receive a confirmation e-mail, and you’re done.  This is a one-time process that is good for the lifetime of your child’s membership.
