Somers is once again hosting a Fall Ball Lacrosse League with one game each week on Saturdays.
League is for Girls and Boys Junior level players (grade 5/6) and Senior level players (grades 7/8) based on grade child is entering in Fall 2018; 4th graders have the opportunity to play on the Junior team with the recommendation of their spring coach
Somers residents will have the opportunity to register before out of town participants are considered
Season will run from Saturday, September 8 until Sunday, November 4. Boys teams will play on Saturday mornings and Girls teams will plan on Saturday afternoons.
Halloween Jamboree event will be held on November 4 & 5; this final event of the season will be a small "Halloween Jam" mini round robin tournament
Playing fields will be at Somers Middle School and Firehouse; all games are played in Somers
Games will run 55 minutes (50 min playing time, 5 min halftime) in 10v10 or smaller formats
The Fall season is less intense than Spring lacrosse with few (if any) practices and one game per week. It's an opportunity for children to keep stick and game skills fresh and is designed for players of all skill levels. It is recommended for children to have played at least one season so they understand the basics of the game.
Vinnie Carra and Mike Hoague will be coordinating the league. Schedules will be out late August once we have final commitments from all the towns participating.
Fall season fee is $60. Registrations will be open the week of July 23 online at SomersLacrosse.org, just select "register online" from the left menu. Late fees apply after Sept 1 and registrations will close on September 8 or when sign ups are full. We encourage you to sign up as early as possible to secure a spot and to allow us time to plan our team counts and schedule.
Hope you can join us!
