2018 NJJLL - AA Division Champions!!

Program Information

Tewksbury Lacrosse - 24 Years Strong!

Toughness.  Speed.  Skill.  Sportsmanship.

 

Tewksbury Boys Lacrosse is one of the oldest continuously run lacrosse programs in our area with more than two decades experience hosting the youth program.  Tewksbury belongs to the North Jersey Junior Lacrosse League (NJJLL) in Division AA - Group 4 and we follow the guidance of our national governing body, US Lacrosse.  In two of the initial 3 years since the NJJLL began a championship format, our program has reached the finals (2016, 2018), winning last year's event.  Starting with our youngest participants, we continuously build lacrosse skills, body strength, mental and physical grit, and game "IQ" in our players through the 8th grade, preparing our boys for competition in high school.  We also have a strong tradition of our players going on to play at the highest levels of the sport (see Tewksbury Laxers Excel on the right) and welcome the opportunity to provide your son with the same training and guidance.

The Boys organization also runs our community's co-ed Soft Toss program which introduces the sport to our Pre-K "athletes".  Fundamentals with an emphasis on FUN!


Interested players in all neighboring towns are welcome including Lebanon Twp., High Bridge, Califon, Bedminster, Readington and Peapack-Gladstone.  

FEES:

$175.00 - Equipped lacrosse - Grades 1st-8th.  Practice 2x per week, 8-14 games - Tournaments.
$ 50.00 - Soft Toss Lacrosse - Grades PK - 2nd - Co-Ed - Play on Saturday mornings.
Family discounts apply for multiple registered children!


VALUE:  Fees cover our use of playing fields including pre-season access to the Rutgers Prep turf facilities; coaches training, certification and background checks; player training equipment including bounce-backs and shooting nets; practice pinnies and game day materials such as goals, balls and first-aid kits; NJJLL league dues and referees payments; and, TAA insurance and infrastructure contributions.  From time-to-time we invite guests in for inspirational talks and to run clinics.  Fees also cover the costs of our year-end picnic with food, games and prizes for players and their entire families.  Players registered in the spring also receive no-fee training in the fall. 

The TAA and the Boys Lacrosse program want every interested child to be able to participate in our sports.  If you require financial assistance, not a problem.  Simply request a private and confidential Scholarship within the registration process.

UNIFORMS: [NOTE:  Soft Toss Players DO NOT ORDER A UNIFORM--a custom T-shirt is included in your participation!!]  Uniforms are ordered during the registration process.  For 2019, the previous manufacturer of our uniforms discontinued the style we have been using the past many years so we need to purchase new uniforms.  The style we are moving to will be a sublimated reversible that continues to offer personalization by name and number in a timeless design while adding the flexibility to change colors (home/away) as needed.  If you just purchased a uniform and have concerns, don't hesitate to contact [email protected]  Sizing will be handled by coaches once we close registration.  Note also that 8th graders receive player-designed uniforms for their final year of Tewksbury Boys Lacrosse, items also completed in the registration process.

REQUIRED EQUIPMENT:  Players must provide their own equipment.  Please see Required Lacrosse Equipment in the right column under Links for a list of the gear needed to play lacrosse.  Lacrosse equipment is sold at most sporting goods stores.  If you go to Darrow's in Whitehouse, mention "Tewksbury Lacrosse" for an additional discount.  The program also has used gear that we're happy to lend out.  Please contact your coach for more information.  Donating equipment??  We'd happilly take your idle gear and find it a new home!  Please send a note to Mark Sheridan at [email protected]

US LAX MEMBERSHIP:  Membership with US Lacrosse is required for all players EXCEPT for Soft Toss.   The registration process will ask for your player's current USL member number. It is important that participants in the Boys Lacrosse program sign-up directly with USL and independently manage their membership.  Benefits include supplemental insurance, discounts to USL merchandise and events, news and information to help player development as well as a subscription to Lacrosse Magazine.  SWEET!!  Please go to the USL website for more information:  http://www.uslacrosse.org/membership.aspx.

COACHES & SAFETY: 
 All our coaches are generous and committed volunteers who are dedicated to the kids' safety and development.  Each must go through background checks, the Rutgers SAFETY training program and Positive Coaching Alliance clinics as well as completion by our head coaches of the US Lacrosse Level I Coaching Education Program (CEP).  We further encourage our coaches to attend local and regional lacrosse training programs and to earn continuing education credits online.  For enhanced player on-field care, we support attendance at general first-aid, concussion awareness and CPR courses.

Come join the fastest game on two feet!!

This is how you do it!


Note the form...low to the ground, eyes on the ball, stick near-parallel, moving through the ball.
