AGE-BASED PROGRAM:  Westport Lacrosse teams are age-based according to the following chart:

CONNY Grade / Birth Date Ranges

CONNY

Division

Grade

Birth Date Range

Age Group

Senior

8

Born 3/1/2007 through 6/30/2008

14U

7

Born 7/1/2008 through 6/30/2009

13U

Notes:

  • Children YOUNGER than the birth dates with their grade have a choice to play with their grade or play with the younger grade.  The child must elect which team they are trying out for PRIOR to tryouts and stay with that group for the season.
  • Children OLDER than the birth dates for their grade must play in the grade or age group their birthdate is linked to (play up).  
  • Children in grade K-4 play with their grade.
  • OLDER children in 8th grade are given six extra months to play in the program because they cannot play high school.  Children older than the 3/1/2007 cut off and in 8th grade may petition Westport PAL and CONNY if they wish to play.
  • Some areas of the Westport program will continue to have mixed grade level teams.  These teams are required to play teams in their division. For example, a 5-6 grade team can play any team in the Junior Division.  As is always the case, scheduling does consider the age, size and ability of our teams when selecting appropriate games.
  • Westport does not allow players to play in an older birth date range.

WESTPORT GLAX REFUND POLICY:  Refunds will not be given once the first practice and/or evaluation has taken place.  Any refunds processed prior to the start of the season will be a full refund less a $75 processing fee.
