**NEW for 2023**

5th - 8th House League program

Boys 5/6 and 7/8 House League will meet 3 times per week, offering a combination of fundamentals, rules, practice and scrimmage. Our mission is to provide players with a program that allows them to learn, grow in all areas of the sport and most importantly have fun in a positive, non-travel environment. The program will offer a variety of skill based games such as speed lacrosse, cross field small sided scrimmages and more, ensuring multiple reps and touches on the ball which is a priority for the development of youth lacrosse players. House League will provide healthy competition with occasional opportunities to play outside of our program. 



All programs are for chidren in grades K-8 whose primary residence is in New Canaan, CT.  The NCLA reserves the right to request a player's proof of residency at any time in which case a registered player's participation in any NCLA program is suspended until the NCLA Board is satisfied with an acceptable proof of residency.

For travel programs, the NCLA is obligated to enforce birth date ranges as mandated and designated by CONNY and US Lacrosse. For Spring 2023, birth date ranges are as follows:

CONNY Age Division

US Lax Age Designation

Born On Or After:




















8U – 6U


  • If your player is OLDER than the birth date range identified for his/her grade level program, you may petition CONNY to allow your child to remain in his/her grade level program. NCLA is obligated to enforce the decision made by CONNY.

  • If your player is YOUNGER than the birth date range, then he/she may play with their school grade level. Email Registrar Patricia Mee ( for assistance with registering

NCLA schedules are not finalized until we are able to confirm coaching and field schedules 

While NCLA makes an effort to coordinate scheduling with other youth sports programs, we expect NCLA Lacrosse to be a player's priority during the spring sports season for grades 5-8.  Neither late registration fees nor the refund processing fee of $25 will be waived for any scheduling reasons for any programs.
