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.

Background Check Information

 

NHYLA requires that all coaches are US Lacrosse Level 1 certified.  Part of this includes a NCSI background check.

However, each program in NHYLA is responsible for protecting all involved in lacrosse and should ask themselves

  • Is it enough?
  • What about my other volunteers - parent helpers, board members, anyone else helping?
  • What are the NH requirements.

 

Jeff King, Peterborough Parks and Rec has put together a great document providing more insight and links to obtain more information.  Please read the following PDF
