ATTENTION ALL PAID AND VOLUNTEER COACHES
Per new guidelines set by Scarsdale Rec Department, all SYLA Coaches (volunteer and paid) are required to partake in a background check.
SYLA has partnered with the National Center for Safety Initiatives (NCSI) to confidentially and securely administer all background checks. All costs associated with the background check will be paid directly by SYLA.
Coaches will not be allowed to step on the field without completion of this background check. As it can take up to two weeks, we suggest you commence the process today.
Scarsdale Youth Lacrosse will run Winter pre-season training clinics for grades K-2. The program will teach lacrosse fundamentals and focus will be on fun and learning. This program is for all skill levels.
A US Lacrosse ID that is valid at least thru the end of March is necessary to register. Go to uslacrosse.org to join/update your membership.
The cost for 4 sessions is $125.00
