Behavior: All Barnstable Youth Lacrosse participants and parents are required to sign an MBYLL Code of Conduct. We want everybody to have a positive experience, disruptive behavior will not be tolerated. Please treat your coaches and teammates with respect. Be a leader. Never get down on a teammate - encourage one another. Never retaliate in a game - let the other team serve the penalty. Never complain to the referees about a call. Be respectful to visiting teams, coaches, and referees.
Commitment: Coaches and members of the BYL Board of Directors have made a significant time commitment to the program. Remember, our coaches and Board are volunteering their time to allow your child to play lacrosse. As a player, you should make the same commitment to your teammates and coaches. Players are expected to attend practices and games and should consider lacrosse their primary sport commitment during the season. Players who come to practice and are dedicated to developing their skills will see the most action in games, but our goal is to play everyone equally in all games.
