Welcome to Amherst Youth Lacrosse!

If you are a returning player, welcome back! If you are a new player, thank you for considering the wonderful sport of lacrosse! Players of all skill levels are welcome.


As we wall know, 2020 and 2021 have added a lot of uncertainty to our lives. One of those areas is how we can participate in competitive sports while maintaining critical safety protocols for all players, coaches, refs and families. As of the week of February 15th the logisitcs of how to do this as part of a Spring 2021 season are still being determined. We are currently considering multiple options inlcuding clinics, scrimmages and game play in a pod format with neighboring communities. Any option will leverage the US Lacrosse "Return to Play" protocols.

AYL is partnering with Amherst Recreation (formerly LSSE) in 2021 to leverage their decades of expertise in coordinating league operations. Moving forward, registrations will be done in their system. Additionally they will help insure we have uniforms, field access, referees and will manage game day communications. If you have any questions about Amherst Rec, please contact .


Lacrosse coaches needed! If you are interested in helping, please contact or at Amherst Rec. Training will be offered so don't let lack of experience discourage you from helping out! Our league can't succeed without volunteers to help run it.
AYL is a non-profit with an advisory Board of Directors and we are looking for new members. The time commitment is minimal and no knowledge of lacrosse is required. If interest in learning more, please contact .


Amherst Youth Lacrosse, Inc. is a registered 501(c)(3) Public Charity and is eligible to receive tax-deductible charitable contributions. (EIN: 46-1504064).

I look forward to seeing you on the lacrosse field!
