BOTC is opening a thread to discuss the National Premier Youth Lacrosse League. The web site link has been added to the Lacrosse Leagues Content Island along the left side of your display.

The NPYLL has published the following information on their web site's opening page :

As you will also note, the Long Island Express has opted to play in this league this year which as BOTC indicated last year is the first clear sign of elite clubs looking for competition outside of the typical tournament format.

The games are scheduled from early April through Memorial Day, very similar to the Spring schedules one might expect to see from Premier or top regional soccer teams in their well established regional leagues.

The league caters for AA and A level teams.

Among the participants from the 2011 were the Arden Attackers, Breakers, Cannons, Club Blue, BLC Crabs, Fearless, Hawks, MadLax, Next Level, General, Looney's, Chesapeake Rock, Hotstix, SP Lax, and Zingos Lacrosse.

Age Updates for 2012

ĽU-15 League - Birthdates Sept 1 1996 - Aug 31 1998 (generally 7th & 8th grade boys)
ĽU-13 League - Birthdates Sept 1 1998 - Aug 31 2000 (generally 5th & 6th grade boys)
ĽU-11 League - Birthdates Sept 1 2000 - Aug 31 2002 (generally 3rd & 4th grade boys)
ĽU-9 League - Birthdates Sept 1 2002 - Aug 31 2004 (generally 1st & 2nd grade boys)


using U-13 ages as an example boys born:
Sept 1 1998 - Aug 31 1999 - are generally in 7th grade
Sept 1 1999 - Aug 31 2000 - are generally in 6th grade

The info states this is a 5th/6th grade division. Is this a typo?

Or are the organizers of an elite program encouraging parents to hold their children back in school for the puposes of lacrosse development?

The table of U/years to graduation year to birth dates (based on your school's cut off dates) follow. In New [lacrosse], the cut off dates cane be anywhere from August to December on grade years which is why that is always a dangerous figure to be using.

U/Age .. Grad ... Birth ..... Grade
U/18 ... 2012 ... 1993/94 ... 12
U/17 ... 2013 ... 1994/95 ... 11
U/16 ... 2014 ... 1995/96 ... 10
U/15 ... 2015 ... 1996/97 ... 9
U/14 ... 2016 ... 1997/98 ... 8
U/13 ... 2017 ... 1998/99 ... 7
U/12 ... 2018 ... 1999/00 ... 6
U/11 ... 2019 ... 2000/01 ... 5
U/10 ... 2020 ... 2001/02 ... 4

If New Jersey and Pennsylvania can be brought into the league, you will then have a "northern" axis which makes the league signficantly more interesting regionally. Keep your eyes on this developing story as it has the possibility to improve te competition landscape.

If anyone every disputes the way Maryland holds their kids back, here is all the proof you need. U-13 5th and 6th grade??? It doesn't matter as its an age based league but really shows their thinking and unfortunate impact on this problem.

Keep in mind the school cut off in Maryland is Aug 31 or Sept 1. Where in NY its Dec 1.


It should be all about Grades, thats who the kids will compete with in High School and for College spots.

Your missing the point, in YOUTH lacrosse it should ALL be about safety! You can let them compete against each other at the grade level when they get to HS, recruiting camps and tournaments. These age/ grade make no sense no matter what state you are from.

You have no idea what you're talking about. Nearly everyone in the Mid-Atlantic who plays U13 is in 6th or 7th grade.

Rather than spending more time on the grade grouping (which is clearly in error), let's get back to the formation of the league in the "northern" states and more club participation.

The Baltimore teams do encourage hold backs. Especially the blc crabs. He is one of the founders of the npyll so he makes sure the dates work. It makes him look like a lax guru when he has teams stacked with boys one and two years older than most. How many boys on his team could be in the grade above? All done to get in schools by parents he exploits as the wizard. Just look at his golden boy stanwick he was almost 20 when graduating high school.
