Kelly Post Boys In-House Spring '23 Team Registration

Registration for Spring 2023 KP Boys Lacrosse is now open.  We encourage parents to register early.  Last year we reached our capacity in our Ducks, Clinic, and Tyker.

Again, this year we are providing an Early Bird discount of $15 for families that register prior to February 1st, 2023.

We have a few changes this year and expect a much smoother rollout and process to start our season this spring.

FAQs:

Due to the number of families in our program we strongly discourage specific requests for a particular team, player, or coach.  

We discourage playing up, as our experience has shown that there is no developmental advantage for this type of movement.  There are some exceptions when a birthdate is close to the cutoff and or a player is currently in the class year of most of the players in the league above.

We promote superior defensive footwork and positioning and strongly discourage any aggressive body or stick checking at all levels of the KP In-house program.

We require a cessation of play for a period of (30) minutes any time lightning is detected within 12 miles of the practice or game location.  Notifications and updates are sent via text message through the TeamSnap App.

 

Kelly Post Travel Team Spring '23 Team Registration

We provide a full slate of travel teams that compete in the MYLA (Maryland Youth Lacrosse Association) each spring.

Teams may begin practices in the fall of 2022 and continue with Indoor practices at the Loyola Airdome during January and February as preparation for the spring '23 season.  Players will receive a uniform that is included in the price of registration.

Our planning and communication for the travel team's seasons is contingent on having players register as early as possible.  We need to plan for either one or two teams for the upcoming season. Over the last few years we were not able to plan for the late registrants as we exceeded our team size of 20 to 24 players.  If we know who is interested earlier, we can plan to create a second team and secure a coach in time to have a successful and worthwhile season.

In some cases for players in the Juniors division we combine with other local programs (i.e. Cockeysville, LTLC or HLC) to provide a team opportunity for interested players should KP not have enough players to field a KP only team.  We are fortunate to have a positive and strong working relationship with our local programs.
