Spring 2014
2014 Overview
  • History
  • Rye Youth Lacrosse (RYL) was founded in 2003 by
    David Greenhouse, Leah Phil Decaro, Rob
    Santangelo and remains a non-profit 501c3
    volunteer organization.
  • RYL is one of the largest youth lacrosse
    organizations in Westchester, NY and Fairfield,
    CT counties
  • RYL participation has grown consistently by
    10-15 per year
  • RYL 2014 Summary
  • In 2014, RYL will field 23 TRAVEL Teams and 40
    HOUSE teams totaling over 850 children between K
    and 8th grade
  • RYL has over 70 coaches with 90 volunteers
  • RYL competes with over 30 different youth
    lacrosse programs across Westchester county,
    Fairfield county, NY City and Long Island
  • RYL has a requirement that all participants
    either live in Rye or attend Rye schools
    including Resurrection, RCDS, and Holy Child

RYL Mission Priorities
  • RYL Mission Statement
  • RYL offers the opportunity to Rye, NY residents
    or students who attend a Rye, NY school to learn,
    play and compete in the game of lacrosse for both
    boys and girls in Kindergarten - 8th grade at
    both the developmental and advanced levels
    through a local House Program and Travel Program.
  • RYL Program Priorities
  • RYL requires that all our participants display
    integrity, good sportsmanship, commitment to
    team, enjoyment, positive effort, as well as
    respect for the individual, the team, the coach,
    the referees, and the game.
  • RYL is a volunteer organization dependent on the
    support of the Rye community of parents, coaches,
    Rye Schools Administration, and the Rye
    Recreational Department.
  • RYLs focus is on skill development and "team"
    play adopting the Positive Coaching Alliance
    (PCA) (http//positivecoach.org) concepts with an
    emphasis on creating a fun learning environment,
    and developing strong character for future
    success off and on the athletic field.

Parent Support
  • Parent Support RYL is 100 dependent on parent
    support including volunteers for coaching and
    organization including scheduling, referees,
    uniforms, field allocations, equipment,
    off-season clinics, coordination with USLacrosse,
    CONNY (Connecticut-New York Youth Lacrosse), and
    Hudson Valley Lacrosse.
  • Participation Agreement Code of Conduct Form
    Please fill out form with your child. Will be
    distributed by Travel coaches.
  • Parent Communication RYL uses the RYL website to
    communicate to parents and coaches. RYL is
    dependent on parent input for online registration
    (please update email addresses). RYL requires all
    players/parents to wait 24-Hours before
    communicating with coaches after a game.
  • Coaches Training RYL strongly encourages all
    coaches including parent coaches to complete US
    Lacrosse Certification Level 1 and Level 2 online
    and to complete the Positive Coaching Alliance
    (PCA) online course.
  • Parent PCA Training RYL strongly encourages all
    RYL Parents to complete the PCA Parent Program
    online or in person (http//positivecoach.org).

Travel League Overview
  • RYLs 23 Travel teams consist of 12 Boys Travel
    teams and 11 Girls Travel teams. RYL travel teams
    compete against other CONNY and Hudson Valley
    youth programs.
  • RYL has both A and B level Travel teams that
    match up with other programs.
  • RYL has tryouts for Travel teams beginning in 5th
    grade and does not have cuts. All participants
    are placed on a team.
  • RYL Travel teams have 2-3 practices per week and
    10-15 games per season including 1-3 tournaments
    per team/season.

    to participate in the RYL House League. RYL
    requires this as part of our focus on fundamental
    skills development.

House League Overview
  • RYLs 40 House teams consist of Boys House teams
    and Girls House teams for grades Kindergarten
    through 4th grade.

    program with emphasis on skills development and

    every Saturday for nine weeks beginning in March
    through our end-of-season Jamboree for all RYL
  • All 3rd and 4th Grade Travel players are required
    to participate in the RYL House League. RYL
    requires this to make sure we are teaching the
    fundamental skills necessary to competing at
    higher level.
  • RYL works closely with both the Rye High School
    men's and women's Varsity lacrosse programs to
    foster the development of future RHS players.

2014 House Travel Requirements
