  • Who will be coaching my daughters team?

Each team will be assigned two experienced coaches. We believe in having all coaches support players in the YJ-MA club program. For example, each team has a defensive and offensive technical coach. This provides players with more individualized attention. Coaches are HS Coaches, Top Alumni College Experienced Players and Assisting Coaches are College Players. College players add active participation such as demos and hands-on practice. Watching and challenging high level athletes helps players gain experience in action. 

  • Does YJ-MA conflict with other school sports or recreational lacrosse in the Spring?

  • Are practices manditory? 

NO! We work around schedules and hold practices, training sessions and Play Days around HS & Rec. YJ-MA ENCOURAGES players to play for their local Rec program. We want to keep Rec programs and NVYLL going STRONG! 

YES! We believe the ONLY way players and teams will keep improving is by attending practices or training sessions. We will put (Optional) on dates recognizing conflicts or on newly added events to the schedule. Players should always try to attend everything. When weather is an issue, we will do our best to provide another date.

Why is it so important to practice in rain or cold weather and on grass-fields? Tournament games are played 99 percent of the time on grass-fields and are NOT canceled due to rain or cold weather. 

  • Can players play up a grade level? 

YJ-MA prefers all players to play with their grad year team. Players might be asked to fill in a roster spot or to play up permanently. This is all on a case by case basis. 

  • Do you have goalie training? 

YES! We provide goalie training to all goalies in YJ-MA. Sunday morning Goalie Clinics and full field Scrimmages help prepare goalies for game play.
