NDGL COVID-19 Update

Saturday, May 9, 2020

Hello Northern Dutchess Lacrosse Families,

We were truly looking forward to a great spring season of lacrosse.  We increased our social media presence this year, we updated our website and we were making some facility upgrades with more fields and goals.  The number of registered players has increased over the last few years as well.  Things were really looking up for us. 

Unfortunately, COVID-19 put a stop to all those positive steps.  With school closures, stay-at-home policies, and social distancing in place, there is no way that we can run a proper spring lacrosse season.  This is unfortunate because we were so excited about this spring season. 

You will have three options with your registration fee, so please let us know which one of these options you would like to do by sending an email to Dan at ndgylc@gmail.com:

  1. Roll current registration into spring lacrosse in 2021. You would not need to pay for lacrosse next spring.
  2. Get a refund of your registration fee.
  3. Donate your registration fee to the club for our future lacrosse players 

The registration fee only includes the amount paid to Northern Dutchess Lacrosse.  According to US Lacrosse, their membership fees are not being refunded. 

Next spring will be quite different for Northern Dutchess Lacrosse.  We will not have a 7/8 team because Hyde Park Schools will be offering a modified lacrosse program.  This is a great step in our area for lacrosse.  We would like to take a moment to thank all our current 6-8th grade lacrosse players as they move on from our club.  We appreciate all your work over the years, and we know you will do great on the next step in your lacrosse journey.   

We will continue to post updates and drills on social media.  Feel free to send us pictures of your little ones playing lacrosse in the yard! 

Stay home and stay safe!
