2019 Youth Lacrosse Registration FAQs

PABA will once again be offering a youth lacrosse program this summer. Here are the details:

Q: When is registration?
A: Registration begins online March 26, 2019. 
You must registers online through this website, although we will also have a live session at Pendleton Town Hall at the following time:
Wednesday, April 3, 2019 from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m

Q: Do I have to attend the live registration session?
A:  Yes.  New for 2019, your player's registration is not complete until you briefly attend the live session (noted above) to get sized for their jersey as the new jerseys are not as forgiving as the "pinney" style we have used in the past.  We suggest bringing your child's shoulder pads (if they have them) to use while they try on the sample jerseys, to ensure they get the correct size.

   If you cannot make this session, please contact us as soon as possible to make other arrangements to have your player sized.


Q: When does the season start?
A: Practices are scheduled to begin in the first week of May, with games starting around the middle of the month of June. Games are currently being scheduled by our league, the Western New York Summer Lacrosse League (WNYSLL), and we should have more information on exact dates in the near future.
 
Q: Why is registration held so early?
A: We hold registration in March/April so we can promote our lacrosse programs through the schools. It also gives us an opportunity to order the equipment, uniforms and supplies we need before practices begin..
 
Q: Where do you hold your practices?
A: All practices are held at Starpoint Central School at the fields East of Fricano Primary School.
 
Q: When are practices held?
A: Practices begin in the first week of May.

In an effort to avoid conflicting with our NFL Flag Football program, practices will most likely be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from approximately 6:00 to 7:30 pm.  Our program coordinators are actively working on scheduling practices and games so that athletes could potentially participate in both programs, if they choose. 
 
Q: Where do you play your games?
A: Home games will be played on the same fields we practice on at Starpoint, while away games are played against other WNYSLL teams through Niagara County and northern Erie County. Click here for a list of WNYSLL teams.
 
Q: When are games played?
A: All games are played on the same days and times as the practices. For example, once the game schedule begins, either our Tuesday or Thursday regular practice will be replaced by a game.
 
Q: How much does it cost to participate?
A: The registration fee is $120 for each youth. This fee includes a PABA Spartans Lacrosse jersey, insurance, and covers field maintenance and fees charged by the league and referees. In addition, each player will be also be required to sell a set amount of tickets for our annual barbeque fundraiser.
 
Q: What should I bring with me for registration?
A: All parents should bring the player or players registering for lacrosse, to get sized for their jersey as the new jerseys are not as forgiving as the "pinney" style we have used in the past.  We suggest bringing your child's shoulder pads (if they have them) to use while they try on the sample jerseys, to ensure they get the correct size.  In addition, if you have chosen not to pay by credit card during the online registration process, please also bring cash or a check in the amount of $120 for payment of the registration fees.
 
Q: What will I have to buy?
A: The league requires each player to wear gloves, an NOCSEA regulation lacrosse helmet, arm pads, shoulder pads, and a mouth guard. While not required, a protective cup is recommended for all players. Each player will need a lacrosse stick, and you’ll also probably want to purchase some lacrosse balls to practice at home.
 
If you child wants to play goalie, PABA will provide a throat guard, chest protector and goalie stick that will be shared by all players who play the position
