Welcome to The Norwalk Lacrosse Association Website
 
Welcome to the Official Site of Norwalk Lacrosse Association, Inc.! 
 
Norwalk Lacrosse Association (NLA) has been the parent affilliate of Norwalk Junior Lacrosse (NJL) since 1990. Our goal is to provide our youth players the opportunity to learn the fundamental skills of lacrosse, participate in a rewarding team experience, and have fun playing the game. We achieve these goals by providing pre-season clinics, in-season practices and games, and post season tournaments.      
 

Norwalk Lacrosse Association also supports the Lacrosse programs of our two city high schools, Norwalk High School and Brien McMahon High School.  Through our collaboration with all our boys and girls coaches, we provide a structured curriculum from Kindergarten to 8th grade that prepares our players for higher level competition in high school and beyond.

 
Norwalk Junior Lacrosse (NJL) is a member of US Lacrosse, the national governing body of the sport.  We are also a member of the Connecticut New York Youth Lacrosse Association (CONNY), which includes fifty-five community based youth lacrosse programs fielding nearly 600 separate teams across Connecticut, Westchester Count, NY, and New York City.

SPRING 2020 Season Cancelled

Dear Parents,

Our Executive Committee met last night and unanimously decided to cancel our season.  At this time, the 2020 Norwalk Junior Lacrosse season is officially canceled.  This was a very difficult decision to make, but considering the situation our State is in, especially Fairfield County, and the high probability that CIAC will also cancel the High School Spring sports season, we feel it is the right thing to do to at this point.

During these unprecedented times, we want to support our lacrosse family by offering a refund for the registration.  We incurred some expenses that are unrecoverable; therefore, a small “sunk cost” of $35.00 will be deducted.  We are offering three options for your refund;

  1. Full refund (minus sunk cost)
  2. Donate 50% and refund 50% (sunk cost deducted off the top)
  3. Full donation to Norwalk Lacrosse Association

Our Treasurer will be submitting refunds on an end of week basis, beginning Friday, April 24th.  We ask that you make your selection by Sunday, May 10th.  Unclaimed refunds after May 8th will be automatically donated to Norwalk Lacrosse Association.    

From the beginning, we have exercised moments of pause to step back and allow our local and state leaders to guide us through this pandemic.  We have also followed the leadership from the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference (CIAC) and participated in discussions with Connecticut New York Youth Lacrosse Association (CONNY).  CONNY is also officially canceling the 2020 Lacrosse season.

As you know, while there have been some encouraging signs that social distancing has slowed the spread of the virus, the Covid-19 outbreak in Connecticut continues to disrupt our daily lives and threaten the health of individuals and communities. While I know all of us crave a return to normalcy and a strong desire to get on the field and cheer for our teams, we must first think about the health and safety of our loved ones. 

On a positive note, now that the decision for the Spring season has been made, we are looking forward and considering some type of lacrosse program for the Summer or Fall.  We will look at all options and come up with a structured plan for when the City gives us the green light and reopens the parks and fields.  I will keep you posted on this initiative as we go along.   Fingers crossed!

Please continue to do your part to stop the spread of this virus and stay healthy and safe. 

LAX ON,

Norwalk Lacrosse Association

If you haven't already seen it, the following link will take you to a terrific documentary video about the origins, history, growth, and future of both men's and women's lacrosse. It is well worth the fifty-five minutes it runs.

http://vimeo.com/64675548

The documentary does, however, omit one fascinating detail. James Naismith, credited with inventing basketball while teaching at Springfield College, was a Canadian and a lacrosse player. So it's not that lacrosse is a lot like basketball ... it's that basketball is a lot like lacrosse.

Enjoy.
