2018 HYLAX BOYS – 5/6 Group Player Evaluations and Team Placements
The 5th and 6th graders will be divided into 3 teams (2 if numbers are low) to meet playing time needs and most closely match the current format used by all of the other programs in Ohio. It is our goal that each of these teams will have an equally great experience and gain training needed via proper coaching to continue to learn and grow in Lacrosse and life lessons.
