BVL Fall Ball is an ideal program for players of all experience levels, from complete beginner to advanced competitor.

Spring is the primary season for lacrosse.  Our 2017 Spring League registration will open on January 1st, 2017.  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.

CYLA Age Eligibility Rules

UPDATED for Spring 2017: 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 1 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 teams at U15, U13, U12, U11, U10, U9, and U8 for the 2017 Spring season.  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 2017 Spring season is determined by his age on May 31, 2016.  

  • For example, any player born on or after June 1, 2003 is eligible to play U13.
  • A player born on or before May 31, 2003 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 6/1/2007) can still play U10. 


2017 SPRING Age Classifications: 

Division Born on or after Grade Equivalency Max Stick Length
  u7#  6/1/2009  1st  37-42"
  u8  6/1/2008  2nd  37-42”

  u10  6/1/2006  4th  37-42”
  u11  6/1/2005  5th  37-42”, 47-54”

  u13  6/1/2003  7th  40-42”, 52-72"
  u15  6/1/2001*  8th  40-42”, 52-72"

 # U7 players must be born before 5/31/2010. U7 players may be grouped with U8 players for Spring 2017 play. 

* All current 8th graders are eligible to play for BVL, regardless of birthdate.
  9th graders are not eligible to play.
