The 2024 BYSA Lacrosse regular season registration is now live. There are some changes for this year.
There is new language at the end of the waiver agreement.
BYSA Lacrosse is an organization run primarily by parent volunteers and funded mostly by registration fees. BYSA, BYSA Lacrosse, BYSA Soccer, BYSA Football, the City of Barre Recreation, and the Town of Barre Recreation departments made a significant capital investment in field turf inside the BOR this year. We are asking families to help us defer those costs by running a cash raffle in 2024. This is in addition to the usual fundraiser of the annual bottle drive. We hope all families will sell ten tickets but are printing tickets in excess. We will also create an online registration process for selling tickets. We understand that this is a new expense. If you opt-out of the raffle and pay $100 upfront, your family will have ten entries.
In addition to the cash raffle, we request you participate in the bottle drive. The opt-out has remained unchanged for the past five years at $25.00.
We are raising the registration fee in 2024 by $10. This is the first increase in over a decade. We will discount all registrations for the regular season until we have to register our teams for the NVTYLL season. Entries after that date will be $45 and $75, respectively.
In a non-compete agreement we have entered into with Central Vermont Lacrosse, we ask the players within towns of the U32 district to register with the Central Vermont Group. If you register with BYSA, we will waitlist you until Central Vermont determines what teams they can field for 2024. After they submit their NVTYLL entries, all players not on a team with Central Vermont will be welcomed into the BYSA program.
Lastly, I will be responsible for my child's BYSA uniform. I will clean the uniform and return the uniform and any loaner equipment promptly after the season or when asked by BYSA Officials.
