Info for Parents

General Eastview Lacrosse Information

Like most sports, Lacrosse is an age based sport. The cutoff for playing levels in August 31. Players with birthdays falling between June and August may age into higher grade if the child is an "older" student of that particular grade. For example: An older 6th grader may age into a mostly 7-8 grade team. Older rising 8th grade players are allowed to play a bonus year at the 14U (resulting in three years of 14U).

Age waivers may be available for summer birthdays to play with their grade. Waivers are granted on a case by case basis. Please reach out the program directors as waivers must be approved by the lacrosse leagues.

These are the rules of USA Lacrosse, where all local community associations play.
