CUMBERLAND – Cumberland Youth Lacrosse is offering lacrosse programs for boys and girls from preschool through 8th grade, and online signups for next season are currently underway and continuing until Feb. 20, 2022.

The “early bird” fees are $110 for existing players who are in kindergarten or 1st and 2nd grades in school, and $165 for players in 3rd-8th grade. New players “early bird” fees are $135 K-2 and $190 3-8, which includes uniform. Preschool and younger kindergarteners can take part in the instructional “Lil Laxers” program for $25.

All practices and home games will be held at Diamond Hill Park. The season is slated to start on April 1, 2022 with two practices a week and most games played on Saturdays. Winter sessions are currently being planned to get players out on the field with a chance to throw, catch and get some exercise.

The league will also be hosting an equipment swap/donation day. This is an excellent way to give back to the sport, and for new players a great way to get the required equipment.

The league’s focus is to promote good sportsmanship, teach skills (basic to advanced), develop a familiarity with the sport for new players, build friendships with teammates, and practice fundamentals.

To register a player online, visit www.cumberlandlax.org and navigate to the “Register Online” tab, where you can follow the directions. Contact Tom Mieczynski, the president of the league, at tmieczynski@yahoo.com for more information.
