About Us

Welcome to Buffalo Youth Lacrosse Association! We are thrilled to have you join our vibrant community dedicated to fostering the love of lacrosse among young athletes. Our program focuses on skill development, teamwork, and sportsmanship, providing a fun and supportive environment for Boys and Girls 1st Grade thru 8th Grade. Participation is open to students in the Buffalo-Montrose-Hanover School District as well as local districts without a lacrosse program.  

Whether your child is picking up a stick for the first time or looking to hone their competitive edge, our coaches are here to guide them every step of the way. We look forward to seeing your child grow, compete, and make lifelong friends on and off the field. Let's make each season an unforgettable journey together!

Lacrosse Parenting 101....

As sports parents, our view of lacrosse is from the sidelines. There’s not a lot we can do about what goes on during the game – in the field, from the coaching box or in the team huddles – but there are several ways we can help improve youth lacrosse as a parent.

1. Keep our sense of humor.  Find the fun in our child’s game instead of worrying about how many minutes they play or how many points they make.

2. Turn a deaf ear. To enjoy the game, we must ignore trash talk, and if we can’t, we need to choose our sideline location carefully!

3. Develop a thick skin. If we cannot turn a deaf ear to the ignorant and senseless remarks we hear,  we better develop a thick skin, one that is not overly sensitive to the rudeness of others.

4. Learn to tame your tongue.   We must not coach our child from the sidelines. It’s distracting to them, undermines the coach, and puts pressure on your child to perform up to your standards.

5. Zip our lips. If you can’t say anything nice about a player, don’t say anything at all.  Someone is always listening. 

If you can follow these five guidelines, you’ll make youth lacrosse a better game!
