Dear GYLA Families,

I hope everyone is safe and healthy during these challenging times with COVID-19.

As many of you are aware, the state of Connecticut has extended the non-essential activities ban until May 20th.  In addition, the Connecticut New York Youth Lacrosse Association (CONNY) just yesterday announced the cancellation of the 2020 Spring Lacrosse season.  As much as it saddens me, the Guilford Youth Lacrosse Association’s (GYLA) executive board has decided to Cancel the Spring 2020 Guilford Youth Lacrosse Season.


We delayed this decision as long as possible and did not come to this conclusion easily.  Please know that GYLA is dedicated to protecting our players, coaches, and community, and the Executive Board felt that the time had come to act in the best interests of everybody concerned by cancelling the season now.  


For K-7th grade players, we will apply your registration fees to Spring 2021 season unless you request a refund (directions below).  The 8th grade players may request a refund or donate their registration fees towards the future of the program.  We are a not-for-profit organization and your donation can potentially be tax deductible.


To request a refund, please email by May 31st.  Please remember that this is a volunteer-run organization.  Many of our volunteers are parents who are presently doing remote school instruction with their children while also working.  We ask for your patience if you do request a refund. 


Finally - please monitor your email for fun activities for players to join (e.g., the Youth Wallball challenge) or for announcements of additional programs and opportunities once restrictions are lifted.


Hopefully, we will be able to celebrate a return to the fields soon. In the meantime, please be safe and healthy.


Thank You,

Paul Farren

President, Guilford Youth Lacrosse Association
