HYAA 2024 BOYS LACROSSE
INSTRUCTIONAL SKILLS CLINIC (GRADES K-2)

K-2​nd Instructional Skills Clinic Dates: Sunday mornings beginning the end of April running through the beginning of June

This year we will continue to offer Boys K-2​nd​ Instructional Skills Clinic on Sunday mornings. The clinic will be run by multiple Coaches and will include some of our Holmdel Varsity High-School Players when available. For the past several years we have had overwhelming success with our K-2nd Clinic with approximately fifteen 3​rd​ graders moving onto our competitive teams in the Coastal Lacrosse League and feeding our program each year. We will also set up a few controlled scrimmages with surrounding towns to get the boys the feeling of playing in game situations.

Registration Fee for Instructional League: $100 Registration starts Monday, January 8th and runs through the end of March.

Additional parent volunteers are needed for the clinic!!! No experience Needed!

Required Equipment for the K-2​nd​ Instructional Skills Clinic:
Helmet, gloves, shoulder pads, arm pads, mouth guard, athletic supporter, cleats, stick (soft​ mesh).

We strongly suggest you talk to the salespeople as some equipment runs large or small and thus there is an element of tailoring to your child. There are also several stores that offer “starter kits” at a reduced rate for the entire package.

 HYAA 2024 BOYS LACROSSE LEAGUES
GRADES 3/4, 5/6 AND 7/8

3rd Grade - 8th Grade Teams – 2nd ​ week of March thru Early- June (practice 2-3 days per week)
 $175 Early Bird registration fee starts Monday, January 8th and ends Monday, February 5th .
 $200 Regular registration fee starts on Tuesday, February 6th. Leagues do close so register early.

We will offer competitive boys’ teams for the Spring 2024 Season. There will be at least one team each in the 3rd/4th grade level, 5th/6th grade level, and 7th/8th grade level. We hope to offer two teams in each age group – one for more experienced players and one for beginner players learning the sport. There will also be some 2nd graders who will be invited to play up one grade level on the 3/4 team and may be some 4th graders invited to play on the 5/6 team. We encourage kids with little to no experience to come out and try the sport and learn the game. No experience is required, but for safety reasons and to ensure a positive experience for everyone, ALL players with no game experience will start on the beginner team. Coaches will use discretion to move kids from team to team as necessary, taking into account practice attendance, skill, effort, etc. We also aim to enter the teams in each age level in at least one tournament in the appropriate competition level during the season. The Tournament Teams will be selected by the Coaches and every effort will be made to include as many kids as feasible.

Holmdel Youth Lacrosse competes in the Coastal Lacrosse League with 10 other towns. This is a town only league which is intended to keep the level of competition balanced. There will be a full schedule which will include standings, playoffs and championships for the 5/6 and 7/8 Teams. As per U.S. Lacrosse guidelines, the 3/4 teams will play a modified game of 7v7 on a smaller size field that is an excellent way for the kids to learn stick skills, get more touches on the ball and learn the game.

Required Equipment for ALL Players:
Helmet, gloves, shoulder pads, arm pads, mouth guard, athletic supporter, cleats, stick (soft​ mesh).

We strongly suggest you talk to the salespeople as some equipment runs large or small and thus there is an element of tailoring to your child. There are also several stores that offer “starter kits” at a reduced rate for the entire package.

Boys and Girls Lacrosse 2023

2023 was a history making year for the Holmdel Lacrosse Program.  Our 5/6 Boys and Girls Teams both won the very competitive Coastal Lacrosse League (“CLL”) with the Girls defeating a very tough Rumson Fair Haven team 9 to 7 and the Boys beating Wall 9 to 6 in the Finals which were hosted at Middletown’s Nutswamp Fields.  The girls team capped off an undefeated season – a first for the program.   The Holmdel Crowd was out in full force including Superintendent of Schools Dr. Scott Cascone.  It was an evening the kids will not soon forget.  It also marked the first time in our programs 11-year history that any of our teams won the championship – let alone two in one night!  Our 7/8 teams also enjoyed a very successful year advancing to the playoffs where the boys fell in a hard fought game against Shark River in the first round.  The girls 7/8 advanced to the Semi-Finals beating Shore in the Quarter-finals before falling to eventual champion Rumson in the Semi-Finals.  The team's advancement to the Semi’s was also a first in history.  All in all a very successful season for Holmdel lacrosse.
