FYL is affiliated with the MBGLL and the MBYLL and has teams for girls and boys ages 8 to 15 (first grade through eighth grade). FYL focuses on instruction, safety and FUN, not championships and league standings. FYL players are instructed in the fundamentals of the game with plenty of opportunity to practice and play against teams from other towns.
Recently there have been requests regarding Lacrosse and Baseball conflicts. We want to send this note to all to address Framingham Youth Lacrosse's philosophy with any type of conflict (sports or other activities). As our mission statement says "…. The Framingham Youth Lacrosse program strives to encourage, develop, and mentor young lacrosse players through the love of lacrosse into productive and community oriented citizens by the examples set forth in the Framingham Youth Lacrosse organization…”.
We fully understand and appreciate the busy schedules that everyone has and the potential for conflicts and for conflict resolution. That said, our consistent approach to any conflicts is a cooperative and flexible approach known as the 50/50. When there is a schedule conflict between two activities, we expect players to compromise at 50% by alternating which practice has to be missed.
We also understand and encourage a “Game” precedence over practice. However, in the event that consecutive practices are skipped due to a conflict and it is apparent that a 50/50 approach is not being supported then there may be situations where a coach cannot guarantee game playing time parity out of fairness to the other players. This is not punitive, and your team may never experience any disparity in playing (which is our goal), however due to recent requests, we want to ensure that the Framingham Youth Lacrosse family is aware of the potential conflict situation and what our goals are to minimize any negative impact.
With that behind us we hope everyone is enjoying the start to the season, it appears the weather is starting to be on our side, we have our practice fields assigned and we have had a huge turnout for this season.
Thanks and we wish everyone well,
FYL Board of Directors
