LHYL members & friends,

Registration is NOW OPEN for NWC (NorthWest Corner) Summer Lacrosse.

We will again be offering 2 programs for men's summer lacrosse.

NWC Men's High School and up (U30)

     for incoming 9th graders and older (Under 30) - on Tuesday nights.

NWC Men’s 30+ League (O30) 

     30 and older - on Wednesday nights.

Registration and payment are required before stepping on the field.

All groups are "pick-up" style, there are no coaches. Players show up, we throw sticks in a pile, split into two teams and play!

If we get a lot of players in a particular group, we go into 3 teams and do round-robin - 3 shorter games.

Games have a referee and representatives from LHYL are on hand to supervise.

Registration fee covers insurance, fields, paint, balls, referees, and custom NWC reversible pinnies.

Games go for 6-7 weeks with make-ups for rain-outs.

For starts, we are looking at:

“Old Men's" (O30) league starting on Wed, June 9 (or 16th if guys are still having youth practices).

Men’s High School+ (U30) starting on Tuesday, June 22.

Games are played at Bantam Civic Association field on Route 209 in Bantam, 6:15PM start.

Players MUST also be a member of US Lacrosse, valid thru 8/14, ($35 for HS/U18, $55 for Over18) to cover insurance.  If you already renewed/joined for your spring team, you are still covered.  If the additional $ is a financial issue, email Jeff and we can work on registration fee.

Goalies are always needed and play for free.  Any and all goalies interested in playing and in a free registration should contact Jeff Porter.  Contact info below.

Note:  These are not “elite” leagues playing other clubs, nor instructional clinics.  They are designed as friendly, for-fun, summer games for rising high school athletes, college kids and adults of any skill level to have some fun, get a good workout in, and keep lax skills sharp.  A referee will strictly enforce rules, particularly prohibiting "take-out" checks, unnecessary roughness, etc.  Such activities will result in immediate expulsion from the program. All players must be in proper, legal equipment.


If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Jeff Porter;    860-483-0046

Under30 group - Register by May 26 so we know for numbers on pinnies

2021 COVID protocols

LHYL Families:

As you are aware, the spring season of lacrosse will be unlike any other season we’ve played in the past because of COVID risks.  We are excited to get the season going, so it is vital that we lay out some simple protocols to mitigate exposures and make this season as safe as possible for our players, coaches, opponents, and families.  These protocols have been distributed to our coaches, so rest assured our teams will be ready to tackle the season.

We have put together a brief document that covers everything from player and coach responsibilities to spectator rules.  Please be sure to read this document carefully and to help maintain the safest environment for our teams and their opponents.  This protocol will remain on our website and is attached to this email for your reference.

As always, thank you so much for your attention to these protocols and for making Litchfield Hills Youth Lacrosse one of the best athletic programs in our area.

Litchfield Hills Youth Lacrosse:  COVID Protocol, 2021 Season


In order to play the 2021 lacrosse season, the following protocols must be followed by coaches, players, and parents:


Player Responsibilities:

  1.  All players will wear masks when they come to and from the fields and while on the benchMasks will not be required during the flow of the game.

  2. Players will do their best to socially distance (while masked) on the benches by maintaining a minimum of three feet distance, as feasible.

  3. Players will supply their own water bottles.  Water bottles are not to be shared under any circumstances.

  4. Players will not share equipment.

  5. Players will not attend team functions if they have any symptoms on the COVID checklist.

  6. Any player that misses a team function because of illness may only return to practice if they:

    1. have a doctor’s note clearing them to play, OR

    2. have a negative PCR COVID test

  7. Players will report to their coach if they have been contact-traced or considered a close contact for a COVID-positive individual at their school, family, work, etc.

  8. Players will report to the coach if they have received a positive COVID test.

  9. 10% of High School players (chosen at random) will obtain a negative COVID test in weeks where our opponents require such a test.


Coaches Responsibilities:

  1. Coaches will wear masks while coaching and on the benches.

  2. Coaches will take and maintain attendance for all practices and games using the COVID checklist.

  3. Coaches will respect the wishes of our opponents regarding COVID protocol.  (This includes players wearing masks on the field if our opponents request that protocol.)

  4. Coaches will enforce player responsibilities, including mask-wearing, equipment sharing, etc.


Family / Spectator Responsibilities:

  1. Family units (who live in the same household) may watch the games, unmasked and without social distancing, as long as they are six feet away from other spectators.

  2. Spectators must be masked walking to and from the fields.

3. Spectators must stay at least six feet apart while watching the game unmasked.  If this is not possible, masks must be worn.

High School teams

We frequently get questions about our High School "club" teams.
Litchfield Hills offers both a boys and a girls high school lacrosse team for high school students from our area to be able to play. Many high schools in our immediate area do not offer lacrosse as a school sport. Additionally, students who may play a different spring sport for their school can still be able to play high school lacrosse. (Check with your school's athletics rules).

Students in CIAC member schools may not play lacrosse for their school team AND for our team.

We play against other club programs, and local private and public schools.
Players in our programs come from:
Holy Cross
(offers a boys team)

Housatonic Valley (offers a girls team)
Nonnewaug (has a boys club team like ours, but not girls)

Our teams are not "club teams" by today's definition (pay-to-play "elite" programs) - We are more like a park and rec type regional club team.

Go Hills!
