Welcome to the Bandits Youth Lacrosse website. We are an organization that believes youth sports should focus on developing young players to be the best that he or she can be. We focus on developing a player's skill, sportsmanship, teamwork and love of the game. We, the coaches, will never berate an athlete or another coach or referee. We expect the same kind of attitude and behavior from our players. We play hard but we play clean and with respect for those around us. We hope your young athlete will consider joining us. We promise to teach your child what he/she needs to know in order to play this game competitively. We also promise to provide an environment which is positive and encouraging to help your child play the best that he/she is capable of playing.
Hope you all have exciting plans for the Memorial Day weekend. There will be some good lacrosse on TV this weekend if you are looking to get out of the sun for an hour or two to watch some games, or just disappointed your kids won't be playing in any games this weekend.
We are coming into the home stretch of the season. I think most teams have their last game on 6/7. The boys U11, U13 and U15 teams will be playing in the Jamboree at Ft Devens on 6/6. The girls U15 will be playing on 6/14.
Please go to the registration page and sign up for the jamboree. It will allow us to be sure we have enough kids and make it easier to communicate to that group.
We will also have a Spree Day in early June. We are targeting 6/5 with a back up date of 6/11 or 6/12. Spree Day is just a fun day hosted by the Bandits for all age groups in the program. Kids can bring friends who want to try lacrosse. We usually have games, some prizes and food available.
Can't believe it is almost over. Special thanks to the parents and coaches who work 10 months a year to make this 10 week season so much fun for the kids.
What a great day, ALL our teams had a beautiful day for their first game. U9s start games on 4/26.
Lots of games, lots of fun. It was great all the boys teams to play at one location today, that never happens, I personally got to see parts of 4 of those games and 1 of the girls games. Just great to see so many new faces, and the returning faces.
I am sure the coaches all had their pre season parents meeting by now or at the game. This is the link to the code of conduct you agreed to when you enrolled your player: https://leagueathletics.com/Page.asp?n=91121&org=banditsyouthlacrosse.org
Team store is open for two weeks starting today. We have two T-shirt options, two sweatshirt options and one jackets, so hopefully something for every ones budget and sizes. You can add and name or number to a few of the items. That is does add cost to those items, we pass that through to you, we don't mark that up at all.
The T-shirts and sweatshirts are how we raise funds to pay for extras and keep our costs downs. The fields we used today and some we will use next week will require some of those funds. So please take a look in the team store and place your order. The web site will email you to confirm you placed an order.

I am waiting for the mock up of what the Bandits version will look like, but it will use the logo on the uniform.
Uniforms. The U15 coaches have those uniforms. U9s should be handing out soon. Other teams, please let me know if you received a top and no shorts. I have 4 pairs of shorts left, and will give those out based on the order you signed up in. Please email Coach Crowley if you got a top but no shorts.
