Welcome to WYLC′s home on the web!
Wolcott Youth Lacrosse Club (WYLC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit entity founded in 2008.  We hope that this site connects you all to the local world of Lacrosse for our kids and also extends your reach to the larger national landscape of this great sport.

Here, you'll be able to register, get news, information, schedules, rosters, game results, directions and much much more. Check back frequently for the latest information about our club.
SPRING 2021 - INFO & REGISTRATION

Dear Wolcott Lacrosse Families,

 

First off, I hope everyone is doing well and staying healthy in these challenging times!

 

I apologize for taking this long to update our lacrosse community but the WYLC Board of Directors was waiting on answers that would allow us to make decisions on having a season this spring. We are all still waiting for the Governor, CT. Health Dept., and Wolcott Town officials to make final decisions that would allow us to play, and we are just not there yet. 

 

As of today, boy's lacrosse is classified as a High Risk Sport (like football), this means no intra-squad games or team practices allowed. Girls' lacrosse is classified as a Moderate Risk Sport, which still comes with certain restrictions. There are petitions to reclassify boy's lacrosse, but there are no timetables set to make these decisions. As you would understand, getting our children back to school safely is the top priority with our state's leadership. 

 

So, what does that mean going forward? We need to start putting plans in place to be able to have a season, even a modified one, once decisions are made. Here are our current plans:

 

  •  Registration will be open on February 7th and stay open through March 1st
  •  The March 1st deadline is in place so we can determine how many players plan on registering for our spring season
  •  This initial registration will require no payments
    • We will not require payment until it is determined there is a Spring Season and we have enough players to field teams
    • Due to many challenges facing our Wolcott families we will have a reduced registration fee this season
    • Open Registration for all levels - $90 (this does not include new uniforms if needed
    • Referral Bonus - $20 will be subtracted from your registration for referral of new players
  •  Results of Open Registration will help determine Go/No Go for a Spring season

 

Virtual Open House: Opportunity for all families to receive “Real Time” updates from the WYLC, Inc. Board of Directors. We will allow plenty of time for Q&A

  • Date: February 22
  • Time: 8pm
    • Invite – Will be emailed out over the next couple of weeks. Please share with new families who may be interested in registering their children into our Wolcott lacrosse program.

 

I need to make a plea to the families of Wolcott Lacrosse for new volunteers to help support the sustainability of WYLC. I am going to be frank, if we do not bring in new board members, coaches, and volunteers immediately, there is a strong possibility WYLC will not be able to move forward as an organization. To put it in perspective, for our last full season, more than half of our coaching staff were more than four years removed from having their own kids in the program. Although a lot of work, volunteering for Wolcott Lacrosse is also fun and rewarding, and there is nothing more thrilling than walking around the Sports Complex on a Saturday and watching lacrosse being played on all fields all day long!  Please reach out to any member of the WYLC Board of Directors if you would like to volunteer, or if you have any questions. Our emails can be found on the www.Wolcottlacrosse.org website.

 

The WYLC, Inc. Board of Directors we will continue to keep everyone updated as more information becomes available, and look forward to seeing everyone at our Virtual Open House on the 22nd.

President, WYLC, Inc
