We have planned the 2021 season for current COVID-19 numbers and mandates/policies, but understand that we might have to make changes based on changing circumstances.  We ask for your patience and we will work to communicate with our ALC Community regularly.  Please see below for our current COVID policies.

As ALC did for the canceled 2020 season, if the season is cancelled in its entirety, ALC plans on refunding registration fees (less a processing fee to cover credit card expenses).  Our plan is to have a great 2021 season, however if the season is cancelled, our goal is to refund our families, however there are certain costs that are paid early in the season that we need to cover (NVYLL registration, field fees, insurance, etc).


ALC participates in the Northern Virginia Youth Lacrosse League (NVYLL). The league divisions are by birth date for the boys. Players register for the division which contains their birthdate.

Boys Divisions for Spring 2021:
The divisions are based on birth date with the year defined as September 1 through August 31. This structure is close to a grade-based structure. Example: Spring 2021 Divisions are based on age as of 9/1/2020.



Birth Dates


Born 9/1/2012 through 8/31/2014


Born 9/1/2010 through 8/31/2012


Born 9/1/2008 through 8/31/20010


Born 9/1/2006 through 8/31/2008 *


Players who have turned 15 prior to the start of the 2021 season may still participate, provided they are in 8th grade.

ALC participates in the Northern Virginia Youth Lacrosse League (NVYLL). The league divisions are by grade for the girls. Players register for ALC in their grade division.

GIRLS Divisions Spring 2021:


Division for registration



9th grade girls that are still 14 on August 31 preceding competition may play for the G78 grade bracket, as long as they are not playing on a high school team.




















Team Slots are Limited - Register as early as possible:
ALC reserves the right to end registration by age level at any time. The number of teams, and thus players, is determined by the number of coaches. Each age level is filled on a first-come basis. Registrations received after a division fills are put on the wait list.

8th Grade Participation:
All players through and including Grade 8 shall be eligible to play in the NVYLL without regard to whether they play for any club or school teams.  Therefore, players in 8th grade who play for their high school or club lacrosse teams (JV) will be eligible to play for ALC 14U (boys) or G7/8 (girls) as long as they meet the age requirements.   


Player Evaluations:

ALC conducts player evaluations as required by NVYLL for the boys at 10U, 12U and 14U and for the girls at grades 3 through 8. The purpose of player evaluations is to determine proper team assignments.  Player evaluations dates and times are TBD.   The details are distributed to registered players and posted to the web site when available. These sessions are restricted to fully registered players. No walk-in registrations are permitted. All registered players are placed on a team. ALC does not use evaluations to cut players from the program. Team assignments are completed in February and March.

“Playing up” in division:

Players must register for the division in which their birthdate falls.   Players will only be allowed to “play up” if ALC determines that it is necessary to move players to fill out rosters so that we can maximize participation at each age group AND if the player demonstrates the age appropriate skill in the next age division based on player evaluations. There is a question in the registration system to make the request to play up in a division; if you are interested in your player doing so, please fill this out and contact the appropriate boys or girls commissioner. The final decision regarding level of play is made after player evaluations and overall team numbers are balanced.

Game Season:

The ALC/NVYLL game season runs from April 10(boys)/April 11(girls) through the middle of June, with 8 regular season games and 2 rounds of play-offs.  Boys games are played on Saturday and girls games are played on Sundays.  The game schedule is developed and distributed by NVYLL. The game times and locations are available one to two weeks prior to the first game.  Due to Covid-19, the game schedule will likely be fluid.

Uniforms are provided to each player for the season.  Uniforms are to be returned at the end of the season.  

Girls: Girls return their Jerseys at the end of the season. Girls will be given an ALC t-shirt to keep.
Boys: Boys return their Jerseys at the end of the season. The boys keep their uniform shorts.

US Lacrosse Membership:
As part of the registration process, the player must establish or renew their membership directly with US Lacrosse. Membership in US Lacrosse is a requirement because ALC insurance is through the organization. The ALC Online Registration automatically opens the US Lacrosse web site to verify the player's membership. The player pays the membership fee to US Lacrosse. The membership must be active through 07/30/2021 in order to proceed with registration.


ALC Needs Coaches: Please volunteer to be a coach this year
The number of coaches determines the number of teams. Coaching is a great way to learn the game and contribute to the community. Please consider coaching a team. Do you know someone with a lacrosse background? Do you know of a former college player who lives in the area? Do you know of a former youth player who is now in high school? Talk to them about coaching for ALC.

Calling all Volunteers:

ALC is a volunteer-based organization and we need help from all families. Whether you are interested in coaching a team, helping out as a parent volunteer for your child’s team or interested in getting involved with the Club in general – we need you; please indicate your interest in registration.
