We are tremendously sad to report that Dax Roane passed away recently after a long battle with brain cancer. Dax was a wonderful father, husband, lacrosse player, Monarch HS coach, and BVL coach with his son's teams. Many of our BVL coaches have played with and against Dax on club lacrosse teams over the years. He will be missed greatly by all who knew him, particularly by his wife Jen and their three children- our thoughts and prayers go out to Jen and the kids.

Spring is the primary season for lacrosse. Our 2020 Spring League registration will open on January 1st, 2020. Demand for spring placement is always extremely high, so we strongly recommend that you register early in January to insure a position for your son.
Players of all experience levels (including beginners) are welcome to register for the BVL Spring League. They will be placed automatically on the appropriate team for their age and experience. You can view answers to frequently asked questions here: Spring League FAQs
BVL Fall Ball runs on Sundays in September and October. You will be able to register for our traditional Sunday Skills program or the CYLA Fall League. You can find more information about Fall Ball here: Fall Ball FAQs
Fall Ball information will be updated for 2020 and registration will open in late July.
Our Sunday Skills program consists of 6 Sunday sessions which include fast-paced drills and scrimmages, it is open to players of all ability and experience levels. Players will be grouped appropriately with other players of similar experience and age, in order to maximize skill development and build confidence.
Alternatively, our CYLA Fall League program will include two Sunday practices, and up to 6 games on Sundays. Fall League is designed for players with at least one season of competitive lacrosse experience, with BVL or another program.
In November/December and then again in January/February, we will organize BVL Winter Indoor Lacrosse at the Sport Stable in Superior. Indoor programs will run on Sunday afternoons.
Indoor lacrosse is a great way for players to develop skills in a fast-paced environment with quick reps and lots of touches on the ball.
Please consider volunteering with BVL as a coach, to help us meet this demand: COACH FOR BVL
Updated For Spring 2020: The CYLA (Colorado Youth Lacrosse Association) will continue to use June 1st as the cutoff date for age-based classification.
The CYLA has permanently adopted US Lacrosse guidelines regarding age-based classification. Therefore Boulder Valley Lacrosse will group teams on the basis of grade with an age cutoff.
Players in the same grade will generally be grouped together, provided that they meet the June 1st birth date cutoff for that age group. All players are required to provide official proof of birth date (birth certificate, passport, adoption papers, etc) before participating in sanctioned CYLA games.
We will set up CYLA Spring League teams at U15, U13, U12, U11, U10, U9, and U8. All current 8th graders are eligible to play, regardless of birthdate. No high school players are permitted to participate.
A player's eligibility for the 2020 Spring season is determined by his age on May 31, 2019.
For example, any player born on or after June 1, 2006 is eligible to play U13.
A player born on or before May 31, 2006 is not eligible to play U13 and must play U15.
In general, we will group players on the basis of "Grade with an Age Cutoff." This means that players in the same grade will be grouped on teams at the same age level, provided that they meet the June 1st cutoff date.
Players who are "young" for their grade will still be permitted to play at that age level. For example, a 4th grader who is age-eligible for U9 (ie born after 6/1/2010) can still play U10.
NO PLAYER WILL BE PERMITTED TO "PLAY DOWN" IN AGE CLASSIFICATION AS PER CYLA RULES-- NO EXCEPTIONS.
2020 SPRING Age Classifications:
Born on or after
Max Stick Length
# U7 players must be born before 5/31/2013. U7 players may be grouped with U8 players for 2019 BVL Sunday Skills and 2020 CYLA Spring League.
* All current 8th graders are eligible to play for BVL, regardless of birthdate.
