2022 Kelly Post Girls Spring Registration

Welcome

Welcome to the 2022 Kelly Post Girls Spring Registration. We thank you for coming out to play with KP!  It's our pleasure to share with your daughters the sport of lacrosse.  We hope that they will love it as much as we do!  If lacrosse is new to you as well, we know you will love it too.   We're here to help you be part of your daughter's lax-journey. 

*NOTE: in order to be part of our other year-round Development Program offerings, which start August 2021, YOU MUST BE REGISTERED for the Spring season.  Those additional opportunities include:

  • FREE Fall Play Day Scrimmages 
  • Fall & Winter workout sessions (KPGLAX pays 50%!) 
  • FREE Goalie Training
  • Summer Tournament Teams (under $200!)

We also have many opportunities for you to coach, team parent, etc, so please don't be shy about volunteering.  We will train you to have fun while helping other girls grow into strong young women while having fun on the field.  It's a job that you'll wish you started sooner - I know I did. 

-Dave Briglio, Commissioner

PLEASE NOTE - IF YOU ARE ASKED TO REGISTER ON THE WAITLIST, WE WILL DO OUR BEST TO PLACE YOUR DAUGHTER ON A TEAM.  IF YOU ARE WILLING TO BE A COACH, PLEASE INDICATE THAT IN THE REGISTRATION WHEN IT ASKS.  WE CANNOT ADD TEAMS IF WE DON'T HAVE ENOUGH COACHES.

ALSO, IF YOU ARE ASKED TO REGISTER ON THE WAITLIST, THE FEE IS 100% REFUNDABLE IF YOUR DAUGHTER IS NOT PLACED ON A TEAM.  

*********************

Practice Days/Times: All will be set in February after field space has been assigned.  But here is our typical scheduling:

-Clinic: they will play for 1 hour on Sundays, starting at either 1, 2, 3 or 4pm at Knollwood Park (by THS Stadium)

-Tyker House: they will play for 90 min for 1 weekday (6-7:30) and play 1 game on on Sundays (1, 2, 3 or 4pm) at Overlook Park

-Tyker MYLA, Lightning, Thunder & Juniors: they will practice for 90 min on 2 weekdays in the evenings (Tyker/Lightning 6-7:30, Thunder/Juniors 7:30-9p) and play 1 game on on weekends...or during the week in place of a practice (all TBD by MYLA) at Carver HS Turf, THS Turf/grass, and possibly Meadowood Park.

EVALUATIONS: We are changing our format and will be having multiple opportunities to evaluate your daughter's level of play to make sure she's on the team that will lead to the greatest level of development for her, while still having fun with her friends.  This will include our fall & winter workout sessions, as well as other events we will schedule prior through February of 2022. 

  • NO evaluations required for Clinic
  • We will be forming A, B and C level teams for all levels ABOVE Tyker (4-8th grade), which play in the MYLA travel league and MUST be evaluated. 
    • *****To play on a top level  team, your daughter must also be interested in playing on the Summer Development Team for your daughter's grade (see more below about the Development Team)****
  • Tykers who want to play locally against other KPGLAX teams do NOT need to be evaluated
  • Tyker who wish to play in the MYLA travel league must be evaluated - we will have a B and/or an A team
    • *****To play on the Tyker A Team, your daughter must also be interested in playing on the Summer Development Team for your daughter's grade (see more below about the Development Team)****

NEW DEVELOPMENT TEAM OPTIONS:  The Development team is KPGLAX's response to the need for more playing and player development opportunities, without the expense and time commitments from traditional club programs. 

During the spring season we will hold tryouts for separate summer teams that will play at 3 tournaments in June, and will also have an added practice in May during the MYLA season.  This will be an optional, extra payment, team, with a completely different registration (not yet released).  If your daughter wants to be considered for the development team, please check the appropriate box (Tyker, Lightning & Thunder only) later in this registration.  There is no financial commitment at this time; we simply want to identify those players to be evaluated.

FALL & WINTER WORKOUTSALL Registered Spring Players are welcome to join our Development Team workouts that take place throughout the winter; but priority will be given to those who participated in the Summer of 2021.  This will be an optional, extra payment ($40 per 4-week session), program, which has been reduced in cost. 

If your daughter is interested in participating in these workouts, please check the appropriate box later in this registration, which will allow you to register and pay for a specific session(s) at the very end of the registration.

*********************

TRAVEL TEAMS?...

...All Lightning-Thunder-Juniors teams travel for approximately half of their games.  We play other Rec Programs in the MYLA league.  

For Tyker, we have primarily "in-house" teams who play each other.  But We will have 1 or 2 teams who travel similar to the older groups.  Please check the box in this registration if your daughter is a Tyker player would like to play on the Tyker team(s) that travel to play other MYLA Rec programs.  If she decides later on she doesn't want to play on the travel team, she can play in the house teams - no problem.

*********************

PAYMENT: This registration will allow you to provide contact information, sign consents and submit payment.  Please read through each page carefully to ensure that all information is provided accurately. To complete registration through our secure site, please have your Visa, MasterCard, Discover ready.

We do not offer refunds after January 1; we do not offer any refunds to players who participated in our Fall & Winter Development Team activities. *Special circumstances may be considered by the Commissioner on a case-by-case basis.
