We hope you and your families are doing the best you can given the current circumstances. At AYS, we practice being perpetually hopeful and optimistic regardless of the situation. Given the great quantity of unknowns, we were holding out in hope of being able to have a spring lacrosse season. Unfortunately, there are many things out of our control and, with the news of school closures for the remainder of the year, our boys (TPL) and girls (FLL) leagues have cancelled their seasons. We will be processing refunds for participants registered for all AYS spring lacrosse programs which you will see in your mailbox in the form of a check within 2-3 weeks.
We know how excited so many of you were for the spring season – we share your disappointment. However, we will continue to be creative about how we can have some sort of lacrosse once we are able to get together again.
Despite not having a season, and refunds being sent out, AYS and our lacrosse coaches are still here for you. If you need anything at all, please don't hesitate to reach out.
We will continue to work on adding fun content to the Andover Youth Lacrosse instagram. Be sure to give it a follow! @andoveryouthlax
Thinking about each of you during this time. Hope to see you soon.
