*We have also added a payment plan (1/3 down, full pay by 2/28) to make it easier for you to sign up now, which will also let us plan for the proper number of coaches when the season starts.
Parents, please consider volunteering! We need team parents, coaches, assistant coaches and others for organizational roles (Board members, task committees, etc.). To give your daughters an amazing lacrosse experience, we need the whole lacrosse community involved, which includes NEW PARENTS to jump in and play a role in our continued success. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll find a role for youthat will feel like "play" not another "job" - I promise

Kelly Post Girls Lacrosse Development Program - 2026, 2027 and 2028/2029 (Tyker)
KELLY POST GIRLS LACROSSE will continue and ENHANCE our Developmental Program Teams for the 2020-21 lacrosse season!
Kelly Post’s plan is to form a 2028 team, a 2029 team and a Tyker team (2030/2031). The potential to create these teams is contingent on the number of girls who are interested in this program.
Our goal is to give our Kelly Post players an alternative to the multitude of club programs that now exist and work to keep the costs in a more affordable range for the participants while providing a higher level of training than found in a lot of local clubs!
This will be a developmental team with additional costs. There is no cost to try out.
Teams will include the following Age Groups:
2028 - Rising 5th Graders
2029 - Rising 4th Graders
Tyker - Rising 2nd & 3rd Graders (2030/2031)
2028 & 2029 Teams Include:
*Fall and winter Training sessions oriented to specific skillsets for all players at S3 Sports Center, with Rob Slade (Owner of S3) and Kevin Atkinson (Former Kelly Post coach and long-time Girls’ High School and Club Coach) which will focus on conditioning, agility, stick skills & team concepts.
*1-2 Pre-Season Scrimmages with Refs
*Pre-Season Annual Catonsville Classic Tournament in March
*Spring Season in the MYLA League
*2-3 Tournaments in summer
Tyker Team Includes:
* Fall and Winter sessions at S3 Sports Center, with Rob Slade (Owner of S3) and Kevin Atkinson (Former Kelly Post coach and long-time Girls’ High School and Club Coach), which will focus on conditioning, agility, stick skills & team concepts.
*Pre-Season Annual Catonsville Classic Tournament in March
*Spring Season in the MYLA League - This is a travel league, and is different from our In-House Rec League. Players will not play in the In-House Rec Tyker League.
*1-2 Tournaments in summer
With summer vacations & events, we totally understand that summer schedules are crazy. Please, if your child is unable to attend the tryouts please contact Dave Briglio at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is no cost to tryout. If your daughter is asked to join the team the additional cost will range from $450-$550 for the team costs and $200-$225 for the Training Sessions. This includes the normal spring season registration fee.
All tryouts will be open to all players and we will select the best players for each team. Participation in a Kelly Post Developmental team will allow players to get all the benefits of being in a club program at a significantly lower cost.
Wherever possible, we will add older teams if interest exists.
For those who prefer traditional rec lacrosse, Kelly Post is continuing to enhance those programs as well. Tryouts for our rec teams will take place in October. Those who are not chosen for a developmental team will be placed on rec teams. Everyone will have a chance to play through our program. Rec tryouts will take place in October.
If you know any past players or friends who would be interested in trying-out, please pass this email along!!
PAST KELLY POST NEWS:
INDOOR LACROSSE REGISTRATION IS CLOSED
The season starts in early October and ends in December.
All teams typically play 10 games and all games are 1 hour in duration. Field play is 6 players and a goalie.
** Space is Limited **
Tyker, Lightning and Midget/Junior:
WHERE: NERRC- Northeast Regional Rec Center on Perring Parkway
When: September 1st through November 21st (10 week season)
How Much: $110 (includes reversible Kelly Post pinnie)
Expected game days/times though not confirmed (please note that these times will be finalized later in the summer):
Tykers (Second year Tyker only. DOB: 9/1/10-8/31/11) play Friday nights and possibly Wed. (team plays 1x per week)
Lighting (DOB 9/1/2008-8/31/2010) play Monday nights and possibly Sat afternoon (team plays 1x per week)
Midget /Junior Combined (9/1/2004-8/31/2008) play Wed and Fri nights (team plays 1x per week)
Each team has 1 game per week. Time and/or day will vary.
Teams will have about 13-15 players per team to account for conflicts with in-season sports. Other than possibly 1 preseason practice there are only games - no practices.
IMPORTANT: We do not recommend indoor lacrosse for girls who do not have at least one year of Tyker experience. There is very little to no time for instruction, and we go straight into games.

Thank you so much for another successful spring lacrosse season with Kelly Post! We hope everyone had a great time developing their lacrosse skills as well as friendships that will hopefully continue beyond the lacrosse season.
Kelly Post Girl's Summer League is a low key/low pressure league to allow the girls to keep their sticks in their hands and have some more fun on the lax field after the season ends. Players will warm up and then be split evenly into 2 teams for a game of 2 - 20 minute halves.
Dates: Sundays from June 17 to July 29, 7 games (Summer league historically consists of 6 games, therefore, June 17th is considered a "bonus" game!)
Where: Meadowood Park
This league is first come first serve so please do not wait to respond. We will cut off registration once we have enough players or by the start of the season whichever comes first. In the past we have ordered pinnies for each of the girls. This year to keep the cost down, we are going to distribute and collect pinnies for each game. Girls are also welcome to wear their reversible KP uniform from this past season but keep in mind they also will wear it for the 2019 spring season.
Here is how the Summer League will work:
- Girls completing Clinic will play with girls completing first year Tykers on Sunday evenings from 6:00 - 7:00 PM at Meadowood Park on field 4.
Players with birthdates from September 1, 2009- August 31, 2011
- Girls completing second year Tykers and girls completing first year Lightning will play together on Sunday evenings from 6:00 - 7:00 pm at Meadowood Park on field #3 (turf).
Players with birthdates from September 1, 2007- August 31, 2009
- Girls completing second year Lightning and girls completing first year Midgets will play together on Sunday evenings from 7:00 - 8:00 at Meadowood Park on Field #3 (turf).
Players with birthdates from September 1, 2005- August 31, 2007
