Hello DYL Community!

Danvers Youth Lacrosse has secured time on the Danvers High School turf for some speed lacrosse and skills sessions for two Sunday evenings from 5-8 p.m. on 11/1 and 11/8!!  Come on out and join us for some fun evenings of Speed Lacrosse, which is a 3v3, non-contact, sticks and mouthguard only game which meets all current safety guidelines. It is a super fun game for all ages which can also be played co-ed. The exact format will be determined based on the number of players and ages which sign up. We are hoping to have enough to run a round robin style tournament for the different age groups. Please fill out the attached Google form if you are ready to finally get out and play some lacrosse.

Hello, DYL Players and Parents!

We hope this finds everyone healthy and happy and enjoying this warm November weather! So, you may or may not know that before lacrosse was a collegiate and professional sport it originated as a tribal game played by eastern Woodlands Native Americans and by some Plains Indians tribes. As a part of Native American Heritage Month which began November 1st, Boston Cannons Lacrosse players Randy Staats, Kyle Jackson and Frank Brown want to answer questions via video from Danvers Youth Lacrosse players! 

The Boston Cannons are inviting players to ask any of their Native American players questions related to their native culture, the history of the sport, or their personal connection to the Creator’s Game. They will answer as many questions as possible, and your video along with the player’s answer may be shared through Boston Cannons social media channels:
