2016 YLM Tournament Rules and Overview

2016 YLM Tournament Rules and Overview

 

Thank you all very much for your patience as we pulled together the year-end tournament.  We know the process can sometimes be frustrating and we realize you receive the brunt of parental questions.  Please understand the schedule cannot be completed until all of the playoff games are finished, which occurs late in the week.  There were also a few weather related issues to deal with this week.  We are also using Tourney Machine for the first time this year, so we had a learning curve there as well.  Hopefully, everyone will be pleased with the new app.

US Lacrosse "Player Segmentation " guidelines
We have received a few questions with regard to the US Lacrosse "Player Segmentation" guidelines approved by the USL Board of Directors in January.  
 
Since the YLM is the only Gold Stick Applicant league in Minnesota, the YLM supports the clarification, analysis and guidance provided by US Lacrosse on appropriate age segmentation.  The YLM doesn't feel any changes to our current segmentation are required to remain in compliance with USL guidelines at this time.  The YLM has long believed that 9th graders should not be classified as youth players and the USL player segmentation policy provides clear support of this belief.  For 2016, the YLM player segmentation will be the same as approved by the Member Associations at the Annual Meeting.  As always, any specific questions or concerns should be directed to youthlaxmn@gmail.com.   Please also make note the approaching deadlines for team registrations for the 2016 summer season.
