Welcome to NHYLA
New Hampshire Youth Lacrosse Association

The New Hampshire Youth Lacrosse Association (NHYLA) was formed in 1994 and has grown as the vehicle for New Hampshire towns and programs to learn about the game of lacrosse, receive help launching lacrosse programs, and act as the guardian of the youth lacrosse game in New Hampshire. As a chapter of the national governing body, US Lacrosse, we adhere to its recommendations for organization and safety.
 

Since its inception the NHYLA has promoted and supported boys and girls lacrosse with members increasing in number each year in both areas. We currently have over 36 towns/programs participating in the NHYLA with approximately 310 teams (approximately 35% girls teams and 65% boys teams) from the ages of 7 through 15 years old.

NHYLA Partnering with Play4TheCure

NHYLA and Play4TheCure

Another season is upon us and I’d like to share some exciting news. NHYLA is pleased to announce that we are once again partnering with Play4TheCure™, the sports fundraising platform of the National Foundation for Cancer Research (NFCR).  This season, we are joining with other leagues across New England, and the Boston Cannons, to raise funds for cancer research at Mass. General Hospital – 100% of funds raised will go to the laboratory of Dr. Daniel Haber, Director of the MGH Cancer Center.

The theme for this year is Unity, as in we’re all in this together – NHYLA, NFCR, the Cannons, MGH, CBS Radio, and the New England business community – uniting the lacrosse community to make a difference.  This is a season-long effort so I need your help getting the word out to all coaches and parents. Our goal is $10,000 and we hope to celebrate meeting our goal when we gather in June for the NHYLA Festival. We have received $2,500 from Eastern Bank to kick off our fundraising.

We are also simplifying the fundraising effort – we have set up a NHYLA page for easy acceptance of online donations https://www.carii.com/#/fundraising/national-foundation-for-cancer-research

 Please have your coaches share this link with parents and SHARE!  Let’s unite the NHYLA community and remember the kids can only do so much. Imagine if every family could contribute just $10, we could raise over $60,000 for cancer research in the laboratory.

We’ve all been affected by cancer at some level – please help spread the word that NHYLA is giving back to something bigger than the game.  I've kicked off the donations on the site, please come join me.

Thanks,

Steve Tieland
President
