Falls Church Youth Lacrosse Club (FCYLC) announced the official opening of its registration period for lacrosse teams for 2010 spring season leagues. Team slots are available for ages 5 – 15 for both boys and girls. Registration is available on the FCYLC Web site, www.fclaxclub.com.
FCYLC is a 100-percent volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to teaching lacrosse to boys and girls in and around Falls Church. FCYLC has been in existence for 12 years. All FCYLC head coaches are certified, undergo background checks and are experienced in teaching lacrosse. The club serves the Greater Falls Church area, and its players eventually feed into the George Mason, Falls Church and J.E.B. Stuart High School lacrosse programs. Scholarships are available for children from families with limited financial resources.
FCYLC enrolled 160 kids and 10 teams in 2009, with team brackets from ages 7 to under 9 (U9), 9 to under 11 (U11) and 11 to under 13 (U13). In 2010, Falls Church Youth Lacrosse is opening registration to new teams in an under-7-year-old (U7) coed, non-contact team for youngsters, as well as a new team for boys between 13-15(U15).
The Northern Virginia Youth Lacrosse League (NVYLL) fields over 450 teams in 24 clubs.
Registrations are open through March 11, for the spring season, which begins in March.
