Please click above to complete this short form and indicate your interest & availability for coaching in the 2016 Fall Ball program.
BVL will offer 2 options in this year's Fall Ball program: "Sunday Skills" or "CYLA Fall League."
We anticipate strong growth in our fall program, so we hope that you will be able to participate in Fall Ball on some level.
All 2016 BVL Fall Ball activities will take place on Sundays. Travel coaches will have the option of adding one practice per week, on a weeknight at the Louisville Rec Center outdoor box arena.
The following information is also available on the Fall Ball page of our FAQ tab:

Our ability to field CYLA Fall League teams is entirely dependent upon the number of coaches interested in this option— if we are not able to assign a player to a Fall League team, he will be assigned to participate in the Sunday Skills program.
Assignment to a Fall League team is not guaranteed and will depend entirely upon the number of coaches willing to select that option.
PROSPECTIVE COACHES: Boulder Valley Lacrosse is always seeking to add new coaches to our program. Lacrosse experience is NOT required, but a positive and healthy attitude about youth sports is mandatory.
If you have the ability to engage kids in an energetic and enthusiastic manner, we would love to have you coach with us and will train you in our preseason coaching clinic on Sunday August 21. We require all coaches to pass a NCSI background check and agree to our BVL Coaches’ Pledge of Responsibility.
