Welcome to Norwell Girls Youth Lacrosse

Mission:  Our mission is to teach, grow, and honor the game of lacrosse in your community and in every town/city across Massachusetts by providing leadership, guidance, training, and structure to all our community member programs participating in MYL’s spring game schedule and our annual Mass Youth Lax Jamboree held in June at the end of our season.


Philosophy:  Our philosophy in MYL's Classic league is all players participate equally (i.e. equal playing time) in all Classic games, on evenly balanced teams (based on player’s grade, age, skill & experience), playing a local game schedule:  Level 78 (7th & 8th graders), 56 (5th & 6th graders), 34 (3rd & 4th graders) & 12 (1st & 2nd graders).  There are NO ‘A’ or ‘B’ or ‘stacked’ teams, nor standings or playoffs, at any level in our Classic league & our traditional Sunday scheduled games.  


Our MYL Select league is an additional & complementary community-based playing opportunity (and NOT a replacement for) a player’s participation in the MYL Classic league play.  MYL Select players must also participate on their MYL Classic team (Why?  See Goals below).  MYL Select league has Division standings, playoffs, Championships, & single-Grade All-Star games.


Our coaches are certified and trained to be teachers of the game and role models focused on character development, team camaraderie and players learning the fundamentals—especially the ‘fun’ part.  MYL is an inclusive organization open to all MA communities where, collectively, we strive to provide a safe, enjoyable, learning experience for all participants in an environment NOT swept up in the pressure filled, win-at-all-cost mania still too common in youth sports today.
