PLEASE MAKE SURE EVERYONE IS KEEPING SOCIAL DISTANCING AND STAYING SAFE. TOGETHER WE WILL ALL GET THROUGH THIS.
REGISTRATION FOR THE 2021 SEASON WILL OPEN ON OCTOBER 14th
After a very long wait we are excited to kick off registration for our 2021 Boca Jets Lacrosse season. Our season will begin in mid-January. Be sure to register as soon as possible. Many of our age groups fill up very quickly and we don't want to have your child shut out of the 2021 season.
Registration will officially open on Wednesday October 14th and will close for regular registration on December 1st. Registration between December 2nd and December 31st will incur a $50 late fee. There will be NO registration after December 31st. If you register on or before October 31st you will receive a $10 discount.
As we are all aware Covid 19 is still a very big part of daily life. The City of Boca Raton has instituted certain protocols to which we must adhere. Please be aware that these protocols may change at the discretion of our community leaders and elected city officials.
Players: All players must be wearing masks until they take the field for play. Once on the field their masks may be removed. All players must have their own water bottle and the sharing of any equipment is prohibited. Water fountains are not available for use and at this time we are not certain as to the availability of the restrooms at Patch Reef Park. At the end of practice/game play players must immediately put a mask on and leave the field as quickly as possible. Congregating and loitering is not permitted at this time.
Parents/Spectators: While acting as a spectator if you are not able to socially distance yourself (six feet apart) masks MUST be worn. The City of Boca Raton is carefully monitoring this and as such if you are unable to follow their protocols it could jeopardize our use of the fields.
We will be purchasing cleaning supplies for use by our coaches to sanitize the benches and common areas at the end of play (both practices and games).
At this time we do not know how our season is going to take shape with regard to game play. We are working with other SFYLL teams to determine what we are able to coordinate. We are confident we will be able to have a solid schedule of games.
New to the registration profile is a City of Boca Raton mandated Covid 19 waiver. Please make sure that this document is read and acknowledged.
The age groups for our players are mandated by US Lacrosse. This year our program will run boys and girls teams in the following age groups: U6, U8, U10, U12, and U14. As always we are here to answer any questions. If you have concerns about your child's age group please contact us prior to registering. These age groups are NOT arbitrary and are determined by US Lacrosse. We must follow US Lacrosse rules for safety, insurance, and liability purposes. Please do not ask to play your child "down". We are aware that often a child's grade is different than other children his/her age. Children must be placed according to age restrictions rather than by grade.
Also US Lacrosse requires the collection of a mandatory fee. This fee goes directly to them and the registration process requires “a stop” at US Lacrosse before proceeding with Boca Jets. If you have to ask us for a refund for any reason please note that the refund does NOT include this US Lacrosse fee. Please be mindful of our registration policies regarding refunds and requests. We appreciate your understanding that we must adhere to our registration/refund deadlines.
We also hope that you can respect our inability to honor requests to play for a specific coach/team. In addition, we understand the demands placed on parents with multiple children however, we do not look at requests to play with specific children. The only request we will honor is that siblings that are twins (that are of the same gender) or fall in the same age category be placed together. Additionally we are aware that parents may have multiple children playing in the league. We do our best to place multiple siblings on teams which have similar practice schedules but sometimes that is just not possible.
Be advised if your child has a scheduling conflict you MUST make note of that at the time of registration. If we find that a team only has practices on a conflict day you will be eligible for a refund. If you do not inform us of schedule conflicts at the time of registration there is NOTHING we can do once your child is placed on a team. We do not know the days of practice at this time. We do our best to accommodate schedule conflicts when we are told in advance however sometimes we find ourselves in the position where we are unable to offer alternative practice days.
If your child played with Boca Jets Lacrosse in 2020 please do not create a new account. Log in to the system using your previously stored user name and password. Then click your child’s name and register them for the current season in the correct age group. If you have any questions please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Registration information can be found on our website at www.bocajetslacrosse.com. We are excited for a fabulous 2021 season.
Finally the following comes straight off the SFYLL home page which governs Boca Jets Lacrosse as well as every other rec program in South Florida. Those looking to change rec programs, having played with Boca Jets Lacrosse you must obtain a written release from us which we will send to the directors of the desired new program. Failure to obtain this release will result in the removal of your child from a new program and he/she will be forced to sit out the 2021 rec season. This is a league rule which we intend to monitor with great scrutiny this season. A lack of transparency will only result in the inability for your child to participate which no one wants to happen. Conversely if you desire to return to Boca Jets having played elsewhere you must follow the same protocol and obtain a release from your current which will allow you to again play at Boca Jets. Please respect this rule and follow proper protocol. Releases are issued on a case by case basis and are at the discretion of the directors.
There is no requirement for new players to participate in any specific program regardless of location. New players may choose any program/location that suits them. However, the league has determined that it is in the best interest of the league and their programs that players that start with a program (HOME PROGRAM) remain with that program for their youth experience. Players moving to other programs because of travel coaches, or other reasons will lead to recruiting in the recreation league which is specifically forbidden. Should the player's family move to a new town that warrants the change of program, the player is required to request and receive a release from the original (HOME) program. All SFYLL programs are required to confirm release from the HOME program prior to registering a player from another SFYLL program. Should a new program form in your home town that was not in existence previously, residents of the new town program will have the option to stay with their current program or move to the new program in their town of residence without the required release. However, once players move they will NOT be allowed to return to their previous program without a release from their new "home program."
We look forward to seeing you at the field

2018..What a great 14th year it was for Boca Jets Lacrosse! We welcomed a lot of new players to our lacrosse community and said goodbye to four "lifers" who will take their skills and love of lacrosse on to high school next year. We are so grateful to all of our families who make the commitment to supporting their players in the love of learning and playing the game of lacrosse.
Little Jets Lacrosse
Little Jets Lacrosse is a program that is tailored made for our youngest children to get them involved in lacrosse and give them an introduction to the game.
The program is geared toward boys and girls ages 4-8. Anyone who has never played before is encouraged to participate in our Little Jets program. It is a fabulous way to learn the fundamentals of the game.
This is a 6 week program thatis held on 6 Monday nights starting in September and concludes at the end ofOctober. We will be holding these clinics at the new fields at Patch Reef Park on Yamatto Raod from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm on Monday nights.
We are aware that many of you have children already playing in our program and may have siblings that fit this age group. We invite you to share this with your local friends who have children in this age group that are interested in learning more about playing lacrosse.
