Welcome to the
Southern Maryland Youth Lacrosse Association (SMYLA)! We are a boys youth
lacrosse league spanning five counties from St. Mary's to Fredrick County
Maryland. We provide an outstanding lacrosse experience for boys ages 7 to
15 years old. We currently have nine programs competing
in our league with four distinct age groups: Bantams (U9), PeeWee's (U11),
Midgets (U13) and Juniors (U15). Most programs also offer play at the
U7 Scoopers level.
The age group
for which a young man participates depends on his age as of
the previous year. The Southern Maryland Youth Lacrosse Association is
broken into two separate and distinct divisions. The Chesapeake and
Potomac divisions group organizations where they will compete against other
organizations of similar skill sets.
champions are determined through participation in a single-elimination
tournament at the end of our season. Each team is seeded in the tournament
according to their overall season record. The SMYLA Tournament is hosted in
Bowie MD the weekend before Memorial Day each year.
Feel free to contact our
Secretary by email.
