What if my child quits playing lacrosse, Can I get a refund?
We do not provide a refund after registration unless a child moves out of the school district, has a medical/health reason or at the sole discretion of SYLAX.
Season, Practices & Games
When does the season begin?
The Spring Season begins in early April on Sundays and goes through the beginning of June.
Outdoor practices will start in early to mid-March weather permitting (practice days/times will be determined by the team's head coach and SYLAX).
Will this interfere with Baseball/Softball?
Our games will GENERALLY not interfere with Baseball or Softball.
HOWEVER, practice times may conflict as the Baseball and Lacrosse coaches will schedule practice based upon their availability.
When are the Spring games and where are they held?
Games are played on Sundays starting the first Sunday in April until the first or second week of JUNE. Typically, four games will be at our home field (Syosset Woodbury Community Park or Stillwell Woods Park), and 4 games will be away. Travel to away games is usually 20 or 30 minutes at the most. (Note: 2nd Grade division usually only plays 6 official games. Coaches try to schedule additional scrimmage/games).

Can I rent or borrow equipment?
As of now, SYLAX does not lend or lease equipment for participants in the PAL Spring League. It is the parent’s responsibility to obtain and fit proper lacrosse equipment for their child. If there are questions please contact your coach. However, registrants of the SYLAX Clinic, will be provided basic equipment for their child upon request.
How can a parent help? I don’t know how to play or coach Lacrosse, what can I do to help?
SYLAX is run and organized by volunteer parents who love the game, and are proud of the Syosset community. We would love to have you volunteer and could use help with fundraising, coordinating events, team parents, timekeepers, field preparations, concessions, and positive cheering and support!
Do I have to volunteer to help?
Yes, we need, as many people to help as possible because our organization is a grassroots organization comprised of volunteers. With more volunteers we will find that many hands make light work.
