There will be a slight change in the age cut off dates for the upcoming indoor & spring lacrosse seasons.
In the past the age cut off date for all programs has been January 1st. The new cut off date is December 31st, 2007.
Here is an example of how this applies:
If your son was born on December 31st, and he will be turning 9 this December, he would register for the Lightning (9-10) program.
If his birthday is January 1st, and he is turning 9, he would then register for the Tyker (7-8) program, since he was 8 as of December 31st.
The above age cut off date applies to the follow age groups:
The Tyker program (ages 7-8) will use September 1st 2007 as their cut off date from this point foward.
This change in the age cut off date applies to those players who have birthdays from September 2nd - December 31st, 2007.
In the past, if your turned 9 on September 2nd or later you would have registered for the Lightning (9-10) program since you would have been 9 on January 1st.
Under this rule change, if you are still 8 on September 1st you will have the option (this season only) to stay back in Tyker for a 3rd season or move up to the Lightning program if you feel you are ready.
Below is a brief description of the rule change from the MYLA:
"Age determination is identical with the upcoming MYLA spring season. A players lacrosse age is his age as of December 31, 2007 -- Except for the Tyker (7-8) division. The Tyker program age will be determined as of September 1st, 2007."

2007 - 2008 Indoor Lacrosse...
We hope everyone has had an enjoyable summer and we are looking forward to the upcoming school year (at least from the parents perspective).
We just received information today from Maryland Indoor Lacrosse in regards to the 2007-2008 Indoor Program. The indoor program is fun, exciting and fast paced. Plus it's a wonderful opportunity to get you son's stick in their hands and get ready for the 2008 spring season.
For those of you new to the indoor program here is a summary of what to expect:
The indoor season consists of 14 games, with each team playing one game per week.
The season runs from October until mid January, with each game lasting approximately 1 hour.
The indoor game is much quicker than the outdoor game, as the ball never leaves the field of play.
Each team plays with 7 players on the field (1G, 2D, 2M & 2A).
Where will your son play their games?
Our Tyker, Lightning, Midget & Junior (B) teams will play their games at either the Perring Athletic Club or the Owings Mills Sports Plex, as part of the Maryland Indoor Lacrosse League.
Our Junior AA team will play their games at the Free State Arena in White Marsh, as part of the Fast Break Indoor League.
What are the registration fees?
Registration fees are $175/per player.
Checks can be made payable to "Cockeysville Boys Lacrosse".
We have a limited number of spaces available...
We are somewhat limited in the number of teams we can register due to facility & field availability, so it’s first come, first served.
Since we are limited, existing players within the Cockeysville Boys Lacrosse program will have priority over new players or players from other programs.
We will do our best to find a roster spot for all who register.If my memory serves me, we have not denied a roster spot to anyone over the past 4 seasons.
Registration is based on your son's age as of December 31st, 2007 for Lightning, Midget & Junior teams.
Tyker teams will be based on your son's age as of September 1, 2007, not December 31st as with the other age groups.
This is done so your son will be playing in the same age group as he will be playing in during the 08 spring season.
For example if your son played in Lightning in 07, but will be 11 as of December 31st, 2007 he will move up to the Midget program for the 07-08 indoor program.
All players registered in the Tyker division must have participated in the 2007 spring Tyker program.
This has been done as a safety precaution to the younger players.
Players moving up from the Clinic program will not be eligible to participate in the 07-08 indoor program.
