At long last, sign ups for this year's adult/high school Summer Lacrosse League have arrived!
Once again we will be ordering pinnies, but we are going with a new supplier based on several comments I received last summer. Gone are the sponsors; teams will now be able to choose their own nicknames, which are subject to approval (they have to be appropriate for all ages). Each team will have its own color scheme to eliminate "guest players" and other shenanigans.
We will have a new format this year - adopted from last summer's second half - which should reduce absence issues. The 2011 SLL will feature a modified field consisting of 1 goalie, 2 defenders, 3 midfielders, and 2 attackmen. This means that teams will be offside with less than three men in the defensive half or less than two in the offensive half. Teams may run up to three long poles on the field at any time.
Rosters will max at 15 players to allow everybody plenty of playing time. We plan to have five teams (possibly six) in the league, with four teams playing each week. The fifth team will be responsible for refereeing games during their off week. Referees will be assigned beforehand.
This year's league will begin On Wednesday, June 8 and run through August 10. The exact number of games will be determined once we know the exact number of teams.
Registration is available below. There is a $35 fee to cover cost of the pinnies, balls, etc.
