Spring CYLA Tryouts & New Spring Select Program

Youth Boys Spring Tryout Registration is now open! The Rattlers are entering their fourth year in the CYLA and we can't wait to share lacrosse with all of you! We believe that lacrosse is an incredible way to teach players valuable life lessons that they can use on and off the field. Additionally, we have an age specific training curriculum that focuses on the stratification of block and random practice drills that help players develop skills, athleticism, and lacrosse IQ rapidly. Please follow the links below to learn more about our program philosophy and S3 curriculum.

Spring Tryouts

We encourage players of all skill and experience levels to tryout. It is our goal to find a spot for ALL players.
