This is an instructional clinic teaching your players the basics of lacrosse. Your player’s stick can be cut to the length of their arm. Cleats are not required for your player to participate in the Lightning Clinic. Please email
Cleat Information: We receive a bunch of questions on cleats and which are preferred or do we need to have separate ones. In the effort to help answer the question here are a few FAQs:
- You do not need to get special lacrosse cleats for lacrosse: you can use soccer, baseball and football cleats for lacrosse.
- If you know your player will be playing soccer, and you think one pair of cleats will work; then get soccer cleats. You will not be able to use lacrosse cleats for soccer.
Uniforms: Middletown Youth Lacrosse will provide for the player to keep reversible practice pinnies for Bantam through Senior. Game Jersey's are the property of MYL and will be collected at the end of each season. Players may purchase matching shorts at the beginning of the season - this is not required.
