It is well known that some of the best field lacrosse players have a strong background in box lacrosse. These skills will improve their play all year round. These sessions are included with your Spring registration. Clinics are broken into in small group settings with multiple skill stations run by coaches that will coach your children in the Spring season. Full equipment is required (stick, helmet, mouthguard, shoulder pads, elbow pads, gloves, protective cup). This will be played on an outdoor hockey rink. Sneakers required - no cleats when on hockey rink. 

Weather permitted, you will receive weather related cancellations the Friday prior to the weekend. These will be schedule ASAP and you will be notified as soon as we have publish the schedule. Please sign up for the SI PLAY APP to receive notifications for games and practices.

 

Facemasks must be worn to walk onto the rink.

 

COVID RETURN TO PLAY POLICY

Based upon the assumption that the area surrounding the Wissahickon school district will remain at Level Four - Green through the PIAA Winter/Spring Season, lacrosse will be permitted to begin full person to person contact and competition with guidelines in place to promote the health and safety of players, coaches, and parents. All players will need to sign a waiver that will be provided prior to the first event.

 

Wissahickon Boys Lacrosse Club Inc., (Wisslax), is a nonprofit boys youth lacrosse club and member of the Southeastern Pennsylvania Youth Lacrosse Association (SEPYLA) which arranges competition between Wisslax and neighboring community clubs. Wisslax's mission is to teach the sport of lacrosse to boys who reside within the boundaries of the Wissahickon School District that are in grades 1-8 (youth programs) and 9-12 (high school programs).

 

AT ALL WISSLAX LEVELS, THE COACHES EXPECT‚ WISSLAX TO BE YOUR SONS PRIMARY SPORTS TEAM DURING THE MONTHS OF MARCH, APRIL AND MAY‚ with the only exception being middle school lacrosse teams. Our coaches have the right to move any‚ player who does not honor their Wisslax team commitment (by attending practices, scheduled games and scheduled team tournaments) down‚ to a less competitive team without refund if the conflicts are because of another lacrosse related commitment.

 

BOUNDARIES: WISSLAX BOYS IS FOR BOYS WHO RESIDE WITHIN THE BOUNDARIES OF WISSAHICKON SCHOOL DISTRICT. BOYS WHO RESIDE WITHIN THE METHACTON & NORRISTOWN SCHOOL DISTRICTS ARE ALSO PERMITTED BY SEPYLA TO PARTICIPATE IN WISSLAX YOUTH PROGRAMS BUT‚ BECAUSE OF SPACE LIMITATIONS AND NEED FOR COACHES AT ALL LEVELS NEW (HAVE NOT PARTICIPATED WITH US IN THE PAST) PLAYERS WHO DO NOT RESIDE WITHIN THE BOUNDARIES OF WISSAHICKON SCHOOL DISTRICT WILL BE PLACED ON A WAITLIST AND RELEASED TO PARTICPIATE ONCE WE CAN CONFIRM OUR NUMBERS AND ENSURE THAT WE HAVE THE PROPER SUPPORT AND COACHES. THIS ALLOWS WISSLAX BOYS TO MAKE SURE THAT WE HAVE THE PROPER PLAYER TO COACH RATIO FOR A MORE ENJOYABLE EXPERIENCE. BOYS RESIDING OUTSIDE OF THE WISSAHICKON SCHOOL DISTRICT MAY BE ABLE TO PARTICIPATE IN OTHER SEPLYA BOYS LACROSSE YOUTH CLUBS, FOR MORE INFORMATION GO TO www.sepyla.org.

 

Boys in grades 5-8 play a travel schedule, organized by SEPYLA (www.sepyla.org), and are placed on teams based on ability. All boys in grades 1-4 participate in Wisslax's In-House program which is designed to introduce new players to the game by integrating them with veteran 1st - 4th grade players.

This format has been proven in some of the most successful lacrosse communities to be the best way to increase level of play for beginners and get them up to speed at a rapid pace.

The primary season for Wisslax youth programs (grades 1-8) takes place in the Spring from February to June, any fall or winter type programs are usually secondary and not part of the normal Wisslax program.

Currently, Wisslax high school programs are subject to availability or invitation only and are limited to boys in grades 9 through 12 who attend Wissahickon High School.

Wisslax is truly a community organization with a community focus of teaching the sport of lacrosse to the boys in our community.  Wisslax is always looking for volunteers so please let us know how you are willing to help.
 
REFUND POLICY:  The refund policy for Wisslax Boys is that there are NO REFUNDS. Any exceptions to this policy will be made only on a case by case basis by the current Board Members.
