Boys Grades 3 & 4 (Division 2)
Boys in grades 3 and 4 build on the core skills they learned in Division III and play according to rules that emphasize skill development. This Division continues the emphasis on basic lacrosse fundamentals and developing all players' "Lacrosse IQ". We begin to introduce more team concepts, and players will begin to learn the unique skills required to play the different lacrosse positions (attack, midfield, defense, goalie).
Registration Fee: $95.00
Equipment: Players must provide their own NCAA regulation size lacrosse stick, gloves, arm pads, cleats (no metal spikes), and mouth guard. WYB will lend players a helmet and shoulder pads - this equipment must be returned at the end of the season. Athletic cups are not required but are strongly recommended.
Players will must purchase a reversible team jersey ($20) with a number to wear at all practices and games. Players will keep their jersey at the end of the season and use again in future seasons.
Team Selection: Every attempt will be made to keep players from the same elementary school on the same team, but we will also make every attempt to make the teams as equal as possible in terms of player size and skill level. The number of teams in the Division will depend on enrollment.
Practices: Practices begin in mid-March (weather permitting), and the season runs through May. Teams will practice up to three times per week. The specific practice schedule and practice location for each team is determined by the head coach.
Games: In 2020 all games will be played on Sunday's at the Thomas Worthington High School varsity field.

Select Team Opportunity
To continue a Worthington Lacrosse tradition, WYB will once again form a “select” team of advanced players to compete against various teams in central Ohio.Players will be selected for this select teams based on skill level, position strength, athletic ability, and sportsmanship, by a selection committee made up of WYB coaches. Parents will be notified of the invitation to participate on the team sometime in late March or early April. Players must play on their respective WYB team for the entire season in order to be eligible to participate on the select team, however there is no guarantee that they will be chosen to participate on the select team.
The select team will practice at least one day per week in addition to the WYB team practice beginning in April. An additional fee will apply for all players selected to be on the teams to cover the cost of jerseys, shorts, and tournament fees - usually around $100. More details to be announced after the season begins; stay tuned!
