CYLA Club Information


If you are new to Colorado or to the sport of boy’s youth lacrosse and have questions concerning what options are available in your neighborhood, what club to register with, etc, please contact the individual club listed below that manages your CYLA region in our league.

The organization that is now CYLA started in the fall of 1990 when Mark Foster and Jamie Duke agreed to form a boys' junior lacrosse organization. Foster founded the Redhawks, focused on Central Denver, and Duke founded the Indians, focused on South Denver. Each club started with one team consisting of second and third grade boys.  The first game was played in March 1991.

In the 25 years that have followed, CYLA has grown to 28 clubs spanning the state from Grand Junction to Aurora; Fort Collins to Pueblo and multiple locations along the Front Range.  In 2015, over 5000 boys participated in CYLA.  Since inception, CYLA has been a volunteer-led community based youth organization focused solely on boys lacrosse.  Each club is managed as a separate entity & each club manages a distinct region in our league.  There are some areas that are shared by multiple clubs, so please contact the clubs directly for more details.

The CYLA offers programs ranging from the entry level young guns to the D1 aspiring middle school players.  We offer a high range of competition and focus on each individual’s need to grow the game of lacrosse within the state of Colorado.  Not all clubs offer a full range of programs.
