Important Player Segmentation Announcement:

At its September 27, 2016 meeting, the CONNY Board of Directors adopted a new player segmentation policy for all member programs which includes Wilton Youth Lacrosse.  The change was driven by US Lacrosse age-based guidelines and their goal of increasing fairness and player safety.  The CONNY policy, which is grade-based with a firm oldest age cutoff for each grade, is a modified version of the USL recommendation. The CONNY committee felt this configuration would encourage participation and better ensure fairness and safety.

For players in grades 5-7, the age cutoff will be September 1st of the year preceding the season.  Those born before September 1st will automatically play up one grade. Players who are "young in grade" (i.e., are younger than their grade's birthday span) have the option of either staying with their grade or playing down in grade. 

The cutoff for 8th grade was moved back to March 1st of the year preceding the season, which results in an 18-month age span. Those 8th graders born before the cutoff date can petition CONNY to be allowed to play with an 8th grade team.  

For players in grades K-4, CONNY will not enforce an age cutoff.  There is strong consensus for keeping these grades to a traditional intro to lacrosse model.
