OHYA will be offering registration for (4) team levels.
Each player must provide his own helmet, stick, gloves, arm pads, shoulder pads, fitted mouth guard, cup and cleats.
If a spot becomes available, we will take a player from the Waiting List in the order of registration. To ensure satisfactory playing time for all individuals, our maximum team sizes listed above are final.
Mini Scots Lacrosse (Kindergarten-2nd)
Players will learn basic lacrosse fundamentals with very limited body contact, and an emphasis on building skills and having fun. Game play will consist of small-sided contests on a shortened field to maximize player involvement. This program will begin in mid-to-late February with indoor clinics offered beginning in January. Games will run through mid-May. Practices are twice a week, and games are generally played on Saturdays within the Cincinnati area.
Pee Wee Scots Lacrosse (3rd-4th Grade)
Our third and fourth grade program emphasizes the fundamentals of the full-field game, including passing, catching, ground balls, and teamwork - along with learning the rules of lacrosse and having fun. Game play will be full sides on a full lacrosse field to emphasize team play and introduce the strategy of the sport. This level introduces a fuller measure of legal contact. Practices will begin indoors in January and the season will run through mid-late May. Regular season practices will be twice weekly, and games are generally played on Sundays within the greater Cincinnati area.
Little Scots Lacrosse (5th-6th Grade)
The 5th-6th grade program introduces more positional specialization, refines fundamental skills, and emphasizes an introduction to offensive and defensive strategy. Players will work to advance their understanding of the full sport of lacrosse while having a great time. Game play will be full-sided teams on a regulation lacrosse field with an emphasis on attacking and defending principles and midfield play. This level introduces time-serving penalties and man-up / man-down specializations, with full legal contact. Practices will begin indoors in January and the season will run through mid-late May. Regular season practices will be three times a week and games are generally played on Sundays within the greater Cincinnati area.
Big Scots Lacrosse (7th-8th Grade)
Our middle school program will focus on developing advanced lacrosse skills while preparing players for high school lacrosse. Players will learn intermediate-level play sets on offense and defense and the game is played within standard lacrosse rules. This level represents fully-competitive lacrosse - our emphasis will be on a positive team experience for every player, but playing time will vary based on practice- and game-evaluations of each player's skill level and performance. Practices will begin indoors in January and the season will run through mid-May. Regular season practices will be three days per week, with games primarily during the week in the greater Cincinnati area.
Each team's season will consist of 8-10 regular league games and one or two 3-game weekend tournaments.
All players are required to maintain an annual US Lacrosse membership. The membership provides players with supplementary on-field injury insurance and a subscription to US Lacrosse Magazine, as well as other benefits. This is mandatory for all lacrosse players.
As a courtesy to our parents and players, we are rolling the $30 annual membership fee into our registration fees this year. OHYA will work directly with US Lacrosse to ensure each player has a membership number, and players with existing memberships are renewed. Visit www.uslacrosse.org for additional information on member benefits.
