2019 NVYLL Boys' Age Groups

For the 2019 Spring season, the NVYLL boys’ divisions will once again follow the US Lacrosse age segmentation guidelines. This is consistent with 2018 age groups.


14U: All players must be born between 3/15/2004 and 8/31/2006
12U: All players must be born between 9/1/2006 and 8/31/2008
10U: All players must be born between 9/1/2008 and 8/31/2010
8U: All players must be born between 9/1/2010 and 8/31/2012

The practical effect of this is that boys' divisions now skew younger than they did prior to 2018, as follows:

8U will be mostly 1st and 2nd graders;
10U will be mostly 3rd and 4th graders;
12U will be mostly 5th and 6th graders;
14U will be mostly 7th and 8th graders.

Concussion Awareness & Information

VYI Parents:

Concussion awareness is a growing topic in youth sports. In support of our athletes, VYI Lacrosse is providing an overview of concussions to both raise concussion awareness and also instill knowledge about the symptoms and risks of concussions across our coaching staff and parent community.

Please take a few minutes to review the information, which includes signs and symptoms of concussion and return to play risks and guidelines.

Parents are also encouraged to visit the "Heads-up" page on the CDC website to review concussion information and symptoms:
