New Milford Youth Lacrosse, a 501c3 organization, was formed to provide instruction and play for boys and girls in grades K through 8th in New Milford and surrounding towns of Sherman, Kent, Bridgewater, Roxbury, New Preston, and Washington. Our goal is to promote lacrosse in a fun and enthusiastic environment for boys and girls. To achieve this goal, NMYL focuses on teaching good basic fundamentals, developing players through game skills and promoting good sportsmanship, respecting all participants and focusing on teamwork while cooperating with the high school lacrosse programs.
- Our goal is not to promote individuals, but to promote skill development, sportsmanship, team play and love of the sport.
- Create and maintain age-level programs focused on teaching fundamental skills and providing challenging competition appropriate for the player's skill and athletic level, while maintaining focus on team concept and individual leadership development.
- Creating a challenging, engaging, learning environment where children on differing levels of skill and physical development can learn and enjoy the game of lacrosse.
- Providing equal attention and support to all participants.
