Welcome to The Norwalk Lacrosse Association Website
 
 
Welcome.
 
Since 1990, Norwalk Junior Lacrosse has taught the fundamental skills of lacrosse, provided a rewarding team experience, and made sure our players have fun. 
 
NJrLacrosse is offered by the Norwalk Lacrosse Association, which also supports the lacrosse programs at both of Norwalk’s high schools and sponsors clinics and opportunities to play for enthusiasts aged six to sixty, and older. 
 
NJrLacrosse is a member of US Lacrosse, the National Governing Body of the sport, and of the CONNY Youth Lacrosse Association, which includes fifty-five community-based youth lacrosse programs fielding nearly 600 separate teams across Connecticut, Westchester County, NY, and even New York City.
 
On this site you'll be able to get the latest news, bulletins, rosters, schedules and game results.

SPRING REGISTRATION IS OPEN

Norwalk Junior Lacrosse spring season registration is open for both boys and girls. Click on Register Online in the left menu, scroll down to the proper gender and grade level, and follow the instructions.

NJrLax welcomes beginners at every grade level, so encourage your friends to sign up.

Note that CONNY regulations now require that we organize teams by grade. Some teams may combine the two grades within a given CONNY Division. However, if your birthday precedes the oldest permitted for your grade (see table below), you will play with the next higher grade. Eighth graders born before March 1, 2002 may petition CONNY to play with their grade and, except in extraordinary circumstances, such a petition should be granted.

2017 CONNY Oldest Birthday by Grade
CONNY Team US Lacrosse Oldest Birthday
Division Grade Age Designation Born on or after:
Senior 8th  14U 1-Mar-02

New CONNY Team Assignment Criteria

At its September 27, 2016 meeting the CONNY Board of Directors overwhelmingly adopted a player segmentation policy for all member programs that is grade-based, but with a hard oldest birthday for each grade. The change was driven by new US Lacrosse player segmentation 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.

If you haven't already seen it, the following link will take you to a terrific documentary video about the origins, history, growth, and future of both men's and women's lacrosse. It is well worth the fifty-five minutes it runs.

http://vimeo.com/64675548

The documentary does, however, omit one fascinating detail. James Naismith, credited with inventing basketball while teaching at Springfield College, was a Canadian and a lacrosse player. So it's not that lacrosse is a lot like basketball ... it's that basketball is a lot like lacrosse.

Enjoy.
