Welcome to AYL′s home on the web!
Welcome to the Auburn 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.

Upcoming Girls's Clinic

Hey AYL,


We are reaching out to all girls and parents in the Auburn Youth Lacrosse family. We were invited by the Central Lacrosse Girls program to join them for a practice on Sunday, Dec 16 at the Shrewsbury Athletic Club located at 3 Tennis Drive in Shrewsbury.

This is for new and returning girls AND the parents. As we try to build the girls program, we will NEED coaches. This is a good opportunity to get some exposure to the girl's game and get a sense of the skills and how to coach them.


Please contact me if you are interested in going, either as a player, parent, or both. I will need to give them a head count, so they know how many to expect. Also, let me know if your daughter will need to borrow a stick for the day, either from us or Central.


This is for girls from Auburn, Dudley, Charlton, Worcester, Oxford, Leicester, Millbury, and Spencer. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Register for the 2019 Season!!!!!

Auburn Youth Lacrosse Families,



Please register for the upcoming season as soon as possible. This helps us know how many teams we will be having, how many coaches we need, practice fields, game fields, uniforms needed, etc. You can register now and pay after the New Year. We will send a payment reminder out in the beginning of January. 

We have had a good amount of players show up to the clinics. We are really trying to push the girls numbers at all age groups and the boys at the grades 1/2 and grades 3/4. 

If you have questions about registration, please send me an email to lax@banditsyouthlacrosse.com or auburnbanditsyouthlax@gmail.com


Keep spreading the word. Remember Auburn Youth Lacrosse accepts players from Auburn, Worcester, and surrounding areas that do not have a team. We have had boys from Auburn, Worcester, Spencer, Webster, Leicester, Oxford, and Millbury. Girls have come from the same towns, plus Dudley and Charlton.

Registration opens 11/1/18 for returning players!!!

Q: When is lacrosse season?

A: We start practice in March when the fields are released; games are played on Sundays from end of March through Mid-June. (Same season as baseball and softball)


Q: When does registration open?

A: We open registration in mid to late October


Q: I am having trouble with the registration (Girls)

A: In the registration process you are required to go to US Lacrosse and create and pay for a membership, and then it will bring you back to the AYL website.  There is often on issue doing so on IOS based devices (iPads, iPhones)


Q: Why can't I figure out how to complete my registration on the AYL website? Why is it asking for an MBYLL player registration number (Boys)

A: You need to go to the MBYLL web site and register your player.  You will create a profile for yourself, add your child, then register them for the spring 2019 season.  You pay $35 there and will be sent a code via email.  The $35 covers insurance for the year and the portion of the league fees the AYL used to pay directly to the MBYLL.  The money will go back into the regions for trainings, coach education and other lacrosse based events. (US Lacrosse membership is no longer required for boys program)


Q: Why is the process to register my son and my daughter different?

A: The process within the AYL web site is the same, but the parent leagues control where we get our insurance from.  US Lacrosse for girls and MBYLL for boys. (New in 2018)


Q: How often do you practice?

A: U11 and above practice two days a week and play on Sundays

A: U9s practice one day a week (last 3 years on Saturday mornings), they also play on Sunday. A second practice day may be available at the coach's discretion.


Q: Are there tryouts?

A: The town based teams do NOT require tryouts, we welcome all players, new or returning, as long as there is space.

A: SOME years we have enough kids to add a "select team" for additional games and practice, those teams will require a tryout.


Q: How much does it cost for the season?

A: Boys in 2019: the rate will remain the same as 2018 as it no longer includes a uniform, it will be $180 for U11 and above, $165 for U9. That cost includes the $35 fee to MBYLL you pay directly on their website. http://mbyll.org/

A: Girls in 2019: the rate will remain the same as 2018 as it no longer includes a uniform, it will be $170 for U11 and above, $155 for U9. That cost includes the $30 fee to US Lacrosse you pay directly on their website. 


Q: Where does the AYL practice?

A: Over the past several seasons we have used Lemansky and Swanson Rd Intermediate School for practice and Auburn High School for games.


Q: What equipment do I need?

A: Boys need a lacrosse helmet, shoulder pads, arm pads, gloves and a lacrosse stick. You can find starter packages for around $150-$200

A: Girls need goggles, mouthpiece and lacrosse stick (girls have different sticks than boys)


Q: What towns can play for the Auburn Youth Lacrosse organization?

A: The AYL represents both Auburn and Worcester, but we allow players from surrounding towns that do not have their own lacrosse program.


Q: What league does the AYL play in?

A: The AYL plays in the MBYLL and MBGLL, “town lacrosse”, there are programs all over Massachusetts that are part of the MBYLL and MBGLL.


Q: Who runs and coaches the AYL?

A: The AYL are a nonprofit, all volunteer organization.  We have volunteers that run the program as part of our Board.  The coaches are all parent volunteers like you.  Most have never played lacrosse.


Q: If your coaches didn’t grow up playing how do they learn to coach?

A: The MBYLL/MBGLL and US Lacrosse sponsor a coach training program, there are required on-line and in-person trainings.  There are experienced coaches in the program always willing to help out or answer any questions you have.


Q: What do you pay coaches or do they get discounts on signing up their children?

A: We do not pay coaches and they still are required to pay for their children to play.  We do reimburse coaches for the expenses incurred for training classes and certification


Q: If is a spring sport why do we register in the fall?

A: We are required to submit how many teams at each age group we will have by 12/31 to the league.  We also place our uniform order by 11/1 to keep the uniform costs as low as possible


Q: What is the refund policy for the Auburn Youth Lacrosse?

A: The AYL can NOT refund any funds paid to US Lacrosse or MBYLL/MBGLL.  Prior to Feb 1 the AYL will refund all money paid to the AYL for registration only.  After Feb 1 the AYL will refund 50% of the fees paid to the AYL for registration.  Exception being if we have a player waiting to take the slot of the player leaving.  We incur 75% of the cost for the season prior to 2/1 which is why we can only offer the 50% refund.
