More details:


1) The format for Fall Ball will be very loose. It could range from a supervised lacrosse “recess” to specific coaching for a given player. The idea is for players to bring ideas for what they want to do on a given day and hopefully the group can come to an agreement. We will do what we can with the numbers that attend. In the past lots of games and scrimmages have been most of what we do.


2)  Online Registration Deadline is August 29. 


3) All participants must be US Lacrosse members. The easiest way to become a member or to renew is to go through the SYL site and start registering. If you go directly through US Lacrosse, go to and follow the easy steps.  When you get to the “Group Information” part of the online application, make sure you type in 2182941 for the Group ID, or check the Steamboat Youth Lacrosse box. 


4) Days canceled due to weather will not be made up .


5) No equipment is provided. Players should bring their equipment every day although we  may not use it on some days. If you have a black and white reversible, please bring it. 


6)2014 Waiver/Medical Release and Health Form and check must be postmarked by Thursday August 25 (unless we already have one for you on file).

7) There is no prorating of registration fee.


8) There is financial assistance available based on need. Please email for more information.

Private Coaching
by Andy Flax posted 07/13/2014

Private Coaching


Private Coaching is a new addition to Steamboat Youth Lacrosse. This is the most personalized, one-on-one coaching available through our program. Players can sign up for as little as one session, or set up a weekly routine with the coach of their choice. Please contact to sign up!



Even though private coaching is new to SYL, all of our private coaches have a lot of one-on-one and small-group experience. Note that each session will have to be scheduled at a time that works for both the client and the coach, so be prepared to discuss a few time slots that work for you. Please see our coaches below, along with their accolades and the positions they are available to coach:
