.

US LACROSSE AGE GUIDELINES:  For registration purposes, all VLC youth players should register for the their applicable team based on the age level or grade level requirements stated in the registration process.  US Lacrosse established these specific age/grade guidelines in order to promote the game of lacrosse among the youth of America in a safe and sportsmanlike environment.  VLC supports these established age guidelines but also believes players should have an opportunity to play with their peers.  If you need to request an exception to the age guidelines for your player's team placement, please contact your youth age level director (can be found under contacts on left menu bar).  Upon completion of registration, VLC will evaluate potential player exceptions to the US Lacrosse Age Guidelines based on overall team numbers, a player’s birth date, team impacts, coach input, and a player’s physical and mental ability to compete and interact effectively with a different age level group.
