Mission Statement


Nantucket Youth Lacrosse (NYL) promotes the sport of lacrosse among youth residing in Nantucket, MA through grade level programs (grades 1-8) open to all interested participants, by teaching the fundamentals of the game and by promoting good sportsmanship, respect for all participants and teamwork, and by coordinating with the Nantucket High School lacrosse programs. Accordingly, NYL has adopted the following goals and policies:

  1. Our goal is not to promote individuals, but to promote skill development, sportsmanship, team play and a love for the sport of lacrosse.
  2. Create and maintain grade-level programs focused on teaching fundamental skills and introducing low-key competition with similar programs in nearby towns.
  3. Creating a challenging, engaging learning environment where children of differing levels of skill and physical development can learn and enjoy the game of lacrosse.
  4. Minimize the publication and promotion of the individuals involved in the program.
  5. Providing equal attention and support to all participants. The girls are part of the Massachusetts Youth Lacrosse (MYL) League that promotes equal playing time. The boys are part of the Crossroads Township League (CTL) that is more flexible on the issue of equal playing time- but within reason. The goal of the program is not to win at all cost.
  6. Engaging adults and experienced high school players to teach, coach and referee the practices and games in with NYL players participate.
  7. Provide access to safe and well-maintained fields with appropriate equipment and uniforms.
