Hello RYL Families - 

Raynham Lacrosse Tagging Weekend is FRIDAY March 30th & SATURDAY March 31st  The boys have been slotted for a 1.5 hour window for tagging. For those new to "tagging" the players will stand close to the entrances of the listed stores with collection buckets asking patrons if they "would like to donate to Raynham Youth Lacrosse" and offer them a lollipop to "tag" them.  This has been an extremely lucrative and successful event for many Raynham organizations and is our biggest fundraiser each year.

This is a mandatory fundraising event for ALL of the boys unless you chose to opt out during registration.  If you opted out please scan the list to make sure you were not added in error. If you are on the list but would like to opt out - please reply to this message and we will place the $50 opt out fee onto your RYL account and remove you from the Tagging Schedule.  Any player who does not report to their scheduled tagging station will be charged the $50 opt out fee.

Attached is the "first draft" of the schedule - we will try to accommodate change requests as they come in but cannot guarantee them.  If you need a swap, please work it out with another player at a different time/location and reply to this message once you have made the swap.  You can write a post on our Facebook wall with your date/time/location to see if someone would be able to swap tagging stations with you.  You may find this easier than trying to track someone down by email. There are currently some open slots in GREEN on the attachment. If you would like one of those slots please reply - swaps will be made on a first email received basis.

If you need a swap but cannot find another person to swap, email  mail.com with your request.  We have tried to put all siblings at the same tagging time but if there are any mistakes please let us know so we can correct that.

Another draft will be sent out before Tagging Weekend with revisions.  Players are asked to wear their jersey from last year or the practice pinnies that were handed out last Thursday during tagging and given collection buckets as well as "tags" to hand out to those who choose to donate!  Each station must have one parent/chaperone present.  Please work out with your other taggers who will stay

Hello RYL -

We are excited to see everyone tonight at our first 2018 RYL Practice at Forekicks!

6-7pm - U7, U9 & U11
7-8pm - U13 & U15

Please arrive early and check in at the registration table by our practice field. Account balances can be paid at the table with cash or check.  Allow yourself extra time to check in and gear up - the whistle will blow at 6pm and practice willl begin.


We wanted to get the word out about the Raynham Youth Lacrosse mobile app available to download in the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store.

You can use the link above or search "SI Play" in the app store to find it.  You will need to sign in with your existing RYL website email and password and it will prompt you with the team(s) available to you based on your log in. 
NOTE: U13 and U15 teams are not assigned yet but you can still see general information, practices, etc

The app synchs with our RYL website for team messages, game info, field directions, rosters, etc.  If a game is changed it will send a push notification to alert you - or notify you of any last minute weather related cancelations.  You can also GPS right to a game field from the app by clicking on the address - it's a very useful app!

We hope you enjoy the app!

Changes for the upcoming season





We wanted to inform everyone of some changes to the RYL program for the Spring 2018 season.  We have left the MBYLL league and partnered up with a newly formed league called the OCLL (Old Colony Lacrosse League). The OCLL is made up of 10 teams in the southeastern MA region including: Raynham, Bridgewater, Quincy, Braintree, Stoughton, Weymouth, Whitman/Hanson, Abington, East Bridgewater, Rockland.



  • This league is structured differently than the MBYLL league - their philosophy is that town teams play equal ability teams.  The size of MBYLL as a whole organization didn’t allow us to choose our region, we were placed in an “area” and assigned towns, regardless of size/skill level, to play against.  This sometimes put us at a disadvantage when playing large towns with 3 or 4 different teams per age level - some being stacked.  We are looking forward to more equal ability games against towns that have similar playing level to our town.

  • At this time OCLL is ONLY scheduling Sunday games.  In years past we had weeknight games, sometimes multiple games a week.  This will be scaled back to Sunday’s only with the occasional weeknight game if deemed by the coach.  Practices are typically 2x per week.

  • Since we are no longer part of MBYLL we are not participating in the Devens Jamboree.  OCLL is working on putting together a jamboree in June - details will be released as they are finalized.

  • This year we are planning to have one team per age level (U11, U13, U15) which is different than past years, and we anticipate this will relieve some of the issues we experienced with scrambling to find players to fill in at games if one team had low attendance.



  • Our fees will stay the same as last year.  We are no longer required to be a member of MBYLL as part of the season fee so that will simplify registration.

  • As always the mission of our RYL program is to foster the development of the sport and teach the boys how to play to the best of their ability.  We encourage equal playing time for all players on the team regardless of their time spent playing the sport or their prior level of play.  We know many of our boys play lacrosse at a club level, which we are thrilled that our program has helped them get to this level, and using their refined skills they should act as leaders for newer players to help them grow in the sport and encourage them to build on their skills.

  • As our stance has always been - this is a town sport for developmental purposes.  If the boys are interested in playing other sports we encourage them to explore their interests in addition to lacrosse.  There may be conflicts with other sports, games, practices, etc.  We ask that you make games a priority for attendance and highly encourage attendance at all practices but we are not of the mind set that a child should play lacrosse and lacrosse only.


We are excited to enter into this new OCLL league this year and look forward to the changes that it is offering us for the coaches and players.
