It's Always Lacrosse Season!

Shrewsbury Boys' Youth Lacrosse (SYL) promotes the game of lacrosse, sportsmanship, teamwork and athleticism.  We welcome players of all abilities.  Our goal is to teach our kids the proper skills, along with training and conditioning, so they get a full understanding of the game, and they develop a life-long love for lacrosse!  We play all of our kids equally in our Town/Classic program, regardless of skills and experience, in order to nurture their participation in this great game and to provide a positive experience for all involved.  As part of the Mass Bay Youth Lacrosse League (MBYLL), there are no scores or standings kept and no championships awarded.  We have found this creates a great environment to develop players of all abilities in a sport which is new to most.

We also have tryouts for  our SELECT level play.  This is a  more competitive game, keeping score and the with season culminating with 2 playoff rounds and a championship.  

SYL believes everyday is a great day to be a lacrosse player!

Lacrosse is a Spring sport.  We begin indoor practices in February, practice outdoor in March, and play our games outside, Sundays in April and May.  Kids love playing “lax” and parents enjoy watching.  


Catch the excitement!

  • Games are fast, 40 minutes of action (no 2+ hour, slow moving youth games)
  • Every player touches the ball, every game (Nobody plays “right field”)
  • He WILL break a sweat!
  • Learning TEAMWORK is paramount to a players success
  • Playing Lacrosse is FUN.  Watching Lacrosse is FUN
  • Lacrosse is played at practically every HS in Massachusetts, and is rapidly growing outside of New England (and did we mention, it’s FUN)


Please join us!

Ground balls win games!!

game winning GB

Jack Peters fights for and ultimately wins this GB, allowing him to kill the clock and preserve the victory for the u15 Select team.


This is a great example of the importance of Ground Balls.  GB's = posession.  Posession = scoring opp and time kills.  High school and college track GB's as a key stat during games (long poles LOVE this stat!) Shrewsbury Lax=GB's.  Nice job, Jack and team.
