SYLA:  The Saratoga Youth Lacrosse Association was formed to provide an instructional, competitive lacrosse program for the youth of the local area (Saratoga, Wilton, Ballston Spa, Greenfield, Schuylerville, etc.).


SYLA will allow children to participate in a "learning" league to expose and encourage the game of lacrosse. SYLA is a member of the Adirondack Chapter of US Lacrosse Youth Council along with many neighboring youth community teams.

Covid-19 Compliance

Guidance and Requirements for Resumption of K-12 Higher-Risk Sports Activities

As many of you have heard, effective February 1, 2021, high risk sports, such as Lacrosse have been authorized by the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) to begin practice and competition if permitted by the local health authorities.

As a result, Saratoga County established the following COVID-19 metrics/requirements:

  • The 7-day rolling average percent positivity in the county, as calculated by NYSDOH, must be at or below 4.0%. If the 7-day rolling average percent positivity is above 4.0%, then activities must be restricted to individual or distanced group training or organized no/low-contact group training.
  • The region’s hospital capacity (percent of hospital beds available) must be above 15%, as calculated by NYSDOH.
  • The region’s rate of hospital admissions must not be unacceptably high or require additional interventions to control the rate of growth, as determined by NYSDOH.
  • The absence of other emerging epidemiological data, information or factors as determined or identified by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) or Saratoga County Public Health Services (SCPHS) that impact COVID-19 control or mitigation.
