Linganore Oakdale Urbana Youth Athletic Association

LOUYAA is one of central Maryland's largest youth athletic organizations, serving more than 2,700 families in 14 sports.

Spring Lacrosse

LOUYAA Lacrosse is the rec program offered for those in Linganore, Oakdale and Urbana communities. We offer instructional, recreational programs for girls and boys ages 5 to 14 and more competitive team play for ages 9 to 14. Head coaches have been trained in the Positive Coaching Alliance and are US Lacrosse Level 1 certified.  All coaches are also concussion certified.

Boys and girls will play separately in the Western Maryland Youth Lacrosse Conference (WMYLC) during the spring season. See the WMYLC website for details, rules, etc. 


League Play

WMYLC offers both Boys and Girls lacrosse based on grade groupings:

  • K-1 (co-ed Scoopers)*
  • 1st & 2nd*
  • 3rd & 4th
  • 5th & 6th
  • 7th & 8th

*Instructional games are played at the Scoopers and 1st & 2nd grade divisions.

For 3rd grade and up in both Boys and Girls, WMYLC will have Competitive and Developmental divisions based on number of teams registering. Competitive teams will play for standings to determine division champion and for the end of season tournament seedings. Developmental teams will also play for standings to determine division champions but will instead play in a play day style format (2 or more games) matched against like opponents on the weekend of the end of season tournaments.

The season consists of 8 conference games and games are scheduled primarily on Saturdays for Boys and Sundays for Girls (make-up games scheduled as calendar permits). The season will start in late march or early April based on weather and field availability. Expect a schedule no later than the week leading up to the opening weekend.


Tryouts

LOUYAA Lacrosse will hold try-outs for 3rd grade thru 8th grade boys and girls to form competitive and developmental teams. Tryouts will be held in late February to early March.


Practice

Boys and Girls teams 3rd grade and up will practice a minimum of 2 evenings a week. Practices will likely begin the second week in March, weather permitting. Scoopers and 1st/2nd Grade teams will practice 1 or 2 nights a week, based on the coach's discretion. 

Practice nights, locations and times are at the head coach’s discretion, but usually last 2 hours, and are held between the hours of 5pm and 8pm.  The amount of daylight in the beginning of the season will play a part.


End-of-season WMYLC Tournament and Play Days

WMYLC will hold its end-of-season Girls tournament in late May and Boys tournament the first weekend of June. Developmental level play day games will be held the same weekend of the respective boys and girls divisions.

All LOUYAA lacrosse teams will have the chance to participate in an optional post-season tournament outside of WMYLC based solely on coach and player availability.
