CYLA Club Information

USE THIS LINK TO IDENTIFY A CYLA CLUB IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD

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.

CYLA AGE ELIGIBILITY RULES

UPDATED for FALL 2018: The CYLA (Colorado Youth Lacrosse Association) will continue to use June 1st as the cutoff date for age-based classification. 

The CYLA has permanently adopted US Lacrosse guidelines regarding age-based classification.  

Players in the same grade will generally be grouped together, provided that they meet the June 1 birth date cutoff for that age group.  All players are required to provide official proof of birth date (birth certificate, passport, adoption papers, etc) before participating in sanctioned CYLA games. 

All current 8th graders are eligible to play, regardless of birthdate.  No high school players are permitted to participate.

A player's eligibility for the 2018 Fall or 2019 Spring season is determined by his age on May 31, 2018.  

  • For example, any player born on or after June 1, 2005 is eligible to play U13.
  • A player born on or before May 31, 2005 is not eligible to play U13 and must play U15. 
  • In general, we will group players on the basis of "Grade with an Age Cutoff."  This means that players in the same grade will be grouped on teams at the same age level, provided that they meet the June 1st cutoff date.
  • Players who are "young" for their grade will still be permitted to play at that age level.  For example, a 4th grader who is age-eligible for U9 (ie born after 6/1/2009) can still play U10. 

NO PLAYER WILL BE PERMITTED TO "PLAY DOWN" IN AGE CLASSIFICATION-- NO EXCEPTIONS.

2018 FALL and 2019 SPRING Age Classifications: 

Division Born on or after Grade Equivalency Max Stick Length
  u7  6/1/2011  1st  37-42"
  u8  6/1/2010  2nd  37-42”
  u9  6/1/2009  3rd  37-42”
  u10  6/1/2008  4th  37-42”
  u11  6/1/2007  5th  37-42”, 47-54”
  u12  6/1/2006  6th  40-42”, 52-72"
  u13  6/1/2005  7th  40-42”, 52-72"
  u15  6/1/2003*  8th  40-42”, 52-72"

 * All current 8th graders are eligible to play, regardless of birthdate.
  9th graders are not eligible to play.
