A.Y.L. Message

It goes without saying that these are unprecedented times for all. As a Board, we had hoped to find a solution to complete our season when this crisis was under control. In light of the recent guidelines by both POTUS and Governor Ducey, it is not possible to provide our kids that opportunity. We feel for all the kids, especially those 8th graders that will age out of youth lacrosse and begin their high school careers. We wish them all luck in the future and thank them for their role in building youth lacrosse in Arizona!

What are we doing now? The league has already begun to secure fields for next year using the credits on the payments made for fields that have gone unused. This will help reduce some of the costs going into to 2021. In addition, refunds are being calculated to reimburse clubs for both unused 2020 referee fees and league fees.

Please give us a few weeks to provide each club with its reimbursement amounts. When received, please review and let Steven DeBiase, Treasurer, know if you have any questions or find discrepancies.

Thank you all for your assistance and support this year. We hope you are all safe and healthy.
