New Age Segmentation Policy

LHYL returning families,

As of September 27, 2016, the age/grade segmentation policy for CONNY youth lacrosse has changed and this will impact the 2017 season.

The new policy is aimed at grouping teams by grade, with an age filter, versus strictly age. The change was driven by the US Lacrosse age-based guidelines and their goal of increasing fairness and player safety. The new policy also addresses the confusing mix of CONNY age-based and grade-based teams that has seriously complicated scheduling.

We ask that you "forget what you know" about divisions; Seniors, Juniors etc going into next season.

This new policy effectively moves the age breakdowns down a year from what we have been doing, making each division younger. Bantams will essentially become what we have been doing as "iLax".

Ideally all same grade players would be on same team. Example: Seniors8 and a Seniors7.  Not having numbers to support that, we will be combining grades within the division, as will other towns/programs.

See the division breakdowns below:

Senior – (14U-8th grade, 13U-7th grade) (No 9th graders)
14 and Under as of Sept 1, 2016.
Born after 03/01/2002 (Born 03/01/02 thru 08/31/04) 

Junior – (12U-6th grade, 11U-5th grade)
12 and Under on Sept 1, 2016.
Born after 9/01/2004 (Born 09/01/04 thru 08/31/06) 

Lightning – (10U-4th grade, 9U-3rd grade)
10 and Under on Sept 1, 2016.

Born after 9/01/2006 (Born 09/01/06 thru 08/31/08)
Will play 7v7, small field

Bantam –(8U through 6U) K, 1st, & 2nd grade
8 and Under on Sept 1, 2016.

Born after 9/01/2008
Will play 7v7 or 6v6, small field
