U8 Division - Lady Renegades

This division is for players ages 7 to 8.  For many players this is the first time they have played organized games against teams from other towns.  At the U8 level, SJYLAX does not flight teams based on ability.   Players continue to work on fundamental lacrosse skills while learning more about on field positioning and movement.  Playing time should be equal for all players at practices and games and players should be given an opportunity to try different positions during the course of the season.

Age Requirements: 2020 Spring Season

Participation in a U8 team is determined by the player's date of birth.  Any player born between September 1, 2011 and August 31, 2013 may play on a U8 team.  


In order to meet the requirements of South Jersey Youth Lacrosse League, all players are required to be current members of US Lacrosse, the national governing body of lacrosse.  A link to US Lacrosse can be found on the helpful links page or by clicking their logo at the bottom of the page.


Teams usually practice 2 nights per week, and most practices will run about 1 hour and 30 minutes.  The team's coaching staff will determine which days and how long the team will practice. 

Practice locations will be determined depending on field availability.

South Jersey Youth Lacrosse League Games

Normally scheduled SJYLAX games are held on Saturdays, at a location in South Jersey.  The teams will play two games in a "Round Robin" format.  If needed, make up games may be played in the evening during the week.  

The SJYLAX games typically begin the last week in March/first week of April and culminate with the year-end tournament, at the end of May/early June.  Games are not scheduled during holiday weekends (Easter and Memorial Day). Games will be played on Mother's Day!

League game schedules are set by SJYLAX.

Exhibition Games

During the season, exhibition games may be scheduled with local teams.  

Exhibition game schedules are set by the Commissioners and Coaching Staff.


Tournaments may be added at the discretion of the Commissioners and Coaching Staff. Tournaments are not required for each team.  

Coaching Requirements

All coaches are required to complete the following:
  1. Background Check
  2. Rutgers Coaching Safety Certification
  3. Current Member of US Lacrosse, as a Coach

The coaching staff participates in clinics and workshops throughout the year to improve their overall coaching ability as well as new and innovative methods to improve the skill level of our players.  We also strive to enhance the player experience by inviting lacrosse coaches from outside our program to work with our players on specific areas of the game (draws, goalie, defense, shooting).  

We encourage players who have graduated from our program, to return and assist the coaching staff as student coaches.
