Spring Lacrosse 2019

Good Morning,

Welcome to the 2019 Franklin Girls Lacrosse season.  Registration is now starting at:  REGISTER NOW

Franklin Girls Youth Lacrosse will be playing in the Founder’s League again this season.  It has been one great league full of  challenging, top tiered lacrosse programs.  This league consists of the following towns; Acton-Boxboro, Bedford, Brookline, Belmont, Canton, Concord-Carlisle, Dedham, Dover-Sherborn, Franklin, Framingham, Harvard, Medfield, Milton, Natick, Needham, Newton, Norwood, Sudbury, Walpole, Waltham, Wayland, Wellesley, Weston, Westford, Westwood. These teams are considered some of the best in the state for girls’ lacrosse   at the high school level.

The reason for my email is to let you know about some important dates to put on your calendar.  New this season, we aim to get our rosters completed and out to the parents and coaches by mid February.  We typically conduct a player draft to ensure fair, equitable teams across the 5th-8th grade levels.  1st through 4th grade teams will be drafted by schools and player/parent requests.  Once teams are picked, these rosters will be final!  Coaches began to contact players in early March to set team expectations.  

Practices (for most teams) are on Tuesdays, Thursdays and some Fridays through the beginning of June.  The Founder’s Jamboree will be held on June 9 this year at Acton Boxboro HS.  It is COACHES responsibility to enter their team.  The Recreation Department does not include the Jamboree as part of the Rec. league, so coaches may end up collecting an additional fee to pay for the jamboree costs.

Once our game schedule has been released, and it is LIVE at: www.franklinreclacrosse.com Please hold the following dates for games: Sundays,

1st & 2nd grade teams will play 4 official games, but we will try to schedule additional scrimmages during Apr. 28 and possibly April 21.  Season kicks off for 1/2 Grade on May 5.  Our focus for 1/2 Grade remains on player development.  So, games will be controlled and often times in house versus other Franklin teams.  We will notify you of the 1st & 2nd grade games as they become available.

All 3rd-8th grade players will receive US Lacrosse memberships as part of your registration fee. We usually send in our list of players to US Lacrosse in early March, so you should begin receiving your membership card and magazine subscription at the start of the season.  As always, if you have any questions about Franklin Girls Youth Lacrosse, please don't hesitate to reach out to us at the Recreation Department, (508) 613-1666 or email at:  Franklinrecreation@franklinma.gov

Sincerely,

Ryan Jette, CPRP

Director of Recreation
