We aim to develop both the athletic skills and the personal character necessary to succeed on and off the field. We value determination, persistence, selflessness, trust, and good teammanship as necessary skills for individual and team success.

Montclair Boys Junior Lacrosse

4th through 8th Grade Program

*Once players are registered, parents/guardians will receive e-mails for updates from your individual team Coaches and/or Team Managers.

 

Overview

The 4th-8th Program is designed to develop (or with newer players, begin to develop) the skill sets needed for competitive play. The curriculum is designed to take each individual boy to his next level, and the teams and program in general to the highest levels possible.  Each grade will play other town programs from Essex and Bergen counties, in the highest ("AAA") division of the Northern New Jersey Lacrosse League.  We may have “A” and “B” teams at each grade, and coaches have full discretion to decide on which team the players will play, and to vary rosters as they see fit according to skill level, attitude, and attendance.  

Players must play in the same school grade. Playing "up" one or more school grades is prohibited. For example, if a player is a 6th grader on March 1, 2018, then that player will be a member of the 6th grade team. This is a NJJLL rule and sanctioned by U.S. Lacrosse, the national governing body of the sport of lacrosse in the U.S.

 

Schedules

In general, the goal is a ratio of two or three practices to one game per week, and to have our travel games on weekends and practices during the week, and there will be exceptions to this general structure.   Practices start the week of March 5th and the Season ends June 2nd.  Note: The practice times shown below will most likely to be correct, but at this point they are still yet to be confirmed by the field assigners, so are subject to change.
