Program Information

About the Damascus Lacrosse Program:

Damascus Boys Lacrosse participates in the Western Maryland Youth Lacrosse Conference (WMYLC). The league includes teams from Montgomery County, Fredrick, Carroll, and Washington Counties. This is a travel league with home games played at the Damascus Recreation Center and away games at the home field of the host team.  Games are typically played on Saturday but there is a strong possibility of weekday and/or Sunday games.

Damascus Lacrosse fields teams within the WMYLC league in both “A” (competitive) and “B” (developmental) Divisions for Boys on the Grade Based Model (see below). Teams will be formed based upon the number of players registered and player abilities.  Where possible or required, DSA will conduct player evaluations prior to the beginning of the season to divide and assign players to the appropriate team.  Our goal is to make sure your child is playing at the right level of competition so he has an enjoyable experience.

1st & 2nd Grade – Damascus offers the US LADM Model for 5-7-year-old Boys.  Like the older age groups, they will practice twice a week and will play games on Saturdays (4-5 games in total).  Games will start later in the season to provide extra time to teach the boys the necessary skills to play the game.  DSA will provide equipment on a first come first serve basis for players that register and need equipment (requires a $150 deposit that will be returned when the equipment is returned to DSA).

3rd Grade and up will practice two-three times a week during weekdays.  Practice fields and times will be determined once teams are formed in early March.  All of our practice fields are in the Damascus\Clarksburg\Germantown area.

Information will be emailed to all registered players regarding tryouts, practice and game dates as we approach the start of our season in late-March.
