Good morning. You should have received an email from the Mass Bay Youth Lacrosse League yesterday. The executive board decided to move the start of the select and classic season to the weeeknd of April 17th-19th. If you have a daughter in our program, we have not heard anything in regards to game schedules being altered at this point. We will update everyone on our practice schedule after our emergency board meeting tomorrow afternoon. Here is the email from MBYLL...
March 13, 2020 – The Mass Bay Youth Lacrosse League (MBYLL) board of directors today announced the cancellation of Week 1 of MBYLL season (April 3-5) for both Classic and Select play due to the Coronavirus outbreak. Week 2 of Select play (April 10-11) will be rescheduled for later in the season. At this time, the MBYLL season will be scheduled to start on the weekend of April 17-19 for both Select and Classic league play. The board will continue to monitor the situation and take any necessary actions based on the latest facts and recommendations from local, state and national health and government agencies.
The MBYLL Board is asking all member town programs to follow local and state government mandates and guidelines regarding gatherings and the use of public space and fields in their towns. The board is strongly advising its member town programs TO CANCELL ALL in-person lacrosse activities through the end of March and reassess at that time based on information and guidelines at that time. This includes indoor and outdoor practices, team meetings, and any in-person gatherings.
“The health and safety of our players, coaches, referees and families is the utmost importance to our league,” said MBYLL President Jim Dalton. “While our first games are three weeks away, the fast-paced changes taking place in all of our communities led the board to make this decision to provide guidance and understanding for our 12,000+ families for at least the next month.”
MBYLL will be in contact with town directors about having extra help with re-scheduling games later in the season.
