We just wrapped up our fourth season of the Atlanta Lacrosse League with the most successful season yet! We had over 320 players across 3 divisions, and are happy everyone had a great time playing this year. We’ve also been busy behind the scenes securing plans to expand our league and offer a better experience to our players. As part of our vision, we’ve also explored expanding into the youth and high school age groups to further our mission: offer quality lacrosse to the Atlanta area.
Today, we’re proud to announce we are officially taking over operations of Atlanta Youth Lacrosse. AYL has been the leader of youth lacrosse in the Atlanta area for over 21 years, and we are thrilled to join forces to offer a Fall, Spring and Summer Lacrosse Leagues. Partnered with AYL, US Lacrosse and the city of Sandy Springs, we’ll now offer leagues for ages K-12 for both boys & girls! The founders of AYL, Lou & Mary Jo Corsetti, are icons of Atlanta Lacrosse and by partnering with them we’re strengthening our operations and offerings for years to come.
With this partnership comes another big announcement, we are transitioning all of our operations to a not-for-profit entity. Kevin and myself have never ran this league “for the money” – just ask our wives. We’ve done it to continue to grow the game in Atlanta, and keep playing lax ourselves. We want to have a sustained business model that delivers a cohesive program offering youth, high school and adult lacrosse leagues. This will allow us to further invest in the program and execute a capital campaign to help ensure the stability of the program and further our mission to grow the game.
Effective immediately we will be open registration for our Fall Lacrosse League for ages K-12. We will host the games on Saturdays and Sundays in Sandy Springs. The league will tentatively start on 9/21 and you can register your kids at: www.AYLLAX.com.
Thank you for supporting us through Chapter 1 of A.L.L. We hope you join us as we move into the next chapter of our league and lives. Also, if you’re interested in coaching, please email me at Shaun@AtlantaLacrosseLeague.com.
