Wall Lax is open to all Boys and Girls K through 8th Grade.
The Wall Lacrosse Club promotes and maintains a competitive youth lacrosse program. The Wall Lacrosse club is for the boys and girls of Wall, NJ. It is designed to teach the sport properly, starting with the basics in our beginner clinic and moving to the next level as the player progresses. The players move on from the basics to the next level through the season as coaches teach basic offensive and defensive game play. Our experienced coaches re-enforce those basics at the start of every year so those new to the sport can still feel comfortable starting at any grade level. We work with both the Boys and Girls Wall High School coaches to continue continuity as the player progresses in to high school.
US Lacrosse Membership - Prior to completing the registration process, all players are required to have a US Lacrosse membership which is valid 1 year from date of registration.
Please go directly to the US Lacrosse website www.uslacrosse.org to renew or establish your US Lacrosse membership. This requirement is related to the club’s insurance policy.
Spring 2021 Covid-19 Athletic Protocols & Guidelines
The Wall Township Lacrosse club is dedicated to putting together a safe successful 2021 lacrosse season.
Please be aware that although we will do everything in our power to keep kids safe and healthy, many of
the issues surrounding COVID-19 are largely out of our control. Adherence to the COVID-19 protocols
and guidelines listed below is mandatory.
Prior to the start of the season, all players and parents must sign the COVID-19 Waiver / Release form.
This form has been provided to all registered players via email and must be printed, signed, and handed in on the first day of practice. In the event that you did not receive the Waiver / Release, it can be found on
the Wall Lacrosse website at www.walllacrosseclub.com
All players and coaches wishing to participate in a Wall Lacrosse event (both practice and games), must
complete the Event Health Check within Team Snap. This can be found within the event details of each event scheduled within Team Snap. This questionnaire regarding symptoms and exposure must be
completed prior to the start of each practice and game in order to participate. Please note that the Health Check option will become available to complete 8 hours prior to the start of the event.
If you cannot see the Team Snap Health Check within the event details on your phone it is likely that you need to update the Team Snap app. (This applies to both Android and IOS devices).
Face Coverings and Social Distancing:
As indicated by the New Jersey Department of Health, face masks are required to be worn by all individuals, including coaches, officials, spectators, and athletes on the sidelines at Wall Lacrosse sponsored events. Exceptions to wearing a face mask include the following:
● Athletes actively participating in high intensity aerobic activities
● Wearing a face mask inhibits the health of the individual
- All Players must wear a mask while walking to and from the playing fields for both practices and games.
- All coaches and team personnel must wear cloth face coverings, that cover the nose and mouth, at all times.
- When possible, all social distancing requirements should be maintained during breaks and to the maximum extent practicable at all times.
- The sidelines of a game (team areas) are limited to essential personnel only. Any changes to this must be approved by the Wall Lacrosse Board of Directors.
- During games, officials should do their best to maintain 6 feet of distance from coaches, players, staff and spectators as well as other officials. Face masks may be pulled down when needed in order to communicate with players and coaches. When off of the field, officials should wear cloth face masks and continue to maintain 6 feet of distance from others.
- Mouth guards should be kept in athletes’ mouths at all times during practices and games. When removed, mouth guards should be kept in protective case, and cleaned before future use. Hands used
to touch a removed mouth guard should be sanitized before touching anything or anyone.
Sharing of water bottles among team members is absolutely prohibited. Each individual should bring their
own water bottles with their name on it.
Spectators will be permitted to attend Wall Lacrosse outdoor events during the Spring 2021 season. It is required that all spectators wear a mask and maintain social distancing guidelines.
With away events, the opposing team will likely have similar protocols and guidelines.
If attending, we ask everyone to respectfully follow their protocols and guidelines
● All spectators must wear a face covering for the duration of the lacrosse game and when entering or exiting the venue.
● Any spectator that does not adhere to the guidelines / requests set forth by the Wall Lacrosse Club Board of Directors may be asked to leave the event/ premises.
● All spectators are required to maintain a distance of six feet between groups.
Any player or coach traveling outside of the state during the season must follow current NJ State travel quarantine procedures. Please notify coaches or board members prior to travel.
Clearance Notes / Return to Play
Upon completion of a mandated quarantine due to either Covid-19 exposure or positive test results, players must present a doctor’s note in order to return to play.
Any note received for a Covid-19 related concern must be from a physician, either a medical doctor (MD) or Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO). A note from a physician assistant or nurse practitioner is not sufficient enough to allow the individual to return to play. The note must contain two parts: a phrase related to Covid-19 concerns and a phrase indicating that they can return to sports and normal activity.
Should a player or coach test positive for COVID-19, whether from Wall Lacrosse Club or an
opponent team, we will follow Monmouth County Department of Health guidelines on contact
tracing and quarantine protocols. This may result in rescheduling or canceling of games and/or
practices to keep our kids safety a priority. We appreciate your understanding and flexibility this
At any time, in the interest of our Players and Coaches Safety, the Wall Lacrosse Club Board
of Directors reserves the right to shut down any or all program activities.
Wall Lacrosse Club COVID-19 Protocols have been created based off of the U.S. Lacrosse “Return
to Play Guidelines” as well as CDC COVID-19 recreational sports guidelines.
Online registration opens in late December and runs through the first practice. Registration is on-line only and payment is submitted via mail. Due to the increased interest in WLC, the club reserves the right to limit team sizes. Payments are processed online only.

Since its inception in 2009, the Wall Lacrosse Club has acted as a feeder program to the Wall High School Boys & Girls Lacrosse Programs. We require all registrants to live within the Wall Township School sending districts. The registrant is not required to be enrolled in one of those schools, however, they must fall within those guidelines.
Costs range from $75 to $250 (age/grade specific) for registration. Payment must be made online with a Credit or Debit Card. A small processing fee will be applied. If you already have the complete team uniform in good condition from the previous year, you will not need to purchase a new uniform.
US Lacrosse On-line registration is additionally required – go on to www.uslacrosse.org and complete the online registration under the Wall Lacrosse Club roster. You will be assigned a membership number. This number is required to be renewed each year for your WLC registration to be completed.
Sibling credits: A $50 credit will be automatically deducted during the time of registration. The sibling discount will be applied as follows: oldest player will pay the full price, all subsequent age groups will have the discount applied ($50 credit per additional sibling). K-2 players do not qualify toward the sibling discount. The sibling discount is only applied toward 3rd thru 8th grade players.
Refunds: The season begins with first practice. Once a season begins, absolutely no refunds will be given for any reason.
No, the Wall Lacrosse Club does not allow players to move up.

The Coastal Lacrosse League is made up of teams from Monmouth and Ocean Counties of New Jersey.

The WLC is always working on the game schedule and will provide it once registration is completed and as the season progresses as needed.
We are a traveling program. We try to schedule close games, but in some cases we will be forced to travel to other club teams that are further away. All efforts are made to try to keep travel to/from as reasonable as possible, including tournament participation.
The WLC will always play to win (either regular season or Tournament games). Playing time will be based on many circumstances including ability, position, quantity of registered players and commitment to the team. However, The WLC will do its utmost to prepare your player for high school competition while also providing as best it can, all the FUN elements of the sport. We will do our absolute best to provide ample practice and playing time for all our players.
We do require fundraising and parent participation. The WLC will require each family to assist the organization in some form or another. Volunteers are very much appreciated. We would appreciate the help on the Board, Coaching or Asst Coaching, being a Team Parent or Asst Team Parent. Help with Field maintenance or cleanup, Score keeping, or Tournament involvement is always helpful. For our spring fundraiser we need a lot of help with baskets. For a more complete list see our head team parent or the team mom of your team.
All games and practices are held outdoors. Please check our WLC website, Facebook, TeamSnap and your e-mail during inclement weather. Some games are played in the rain, so please have your child dress appropriately. If a game is cancelled, we will make every effort to reschedule it.
TeamSnap will reflect schedule changes as soon as they are available. We will try to get notifications out via TeamSnap message board and Facebook as soon as possible. Please ensure you have registered for TeamSnap and you are following the Facebook page.
WLC players must exhibit positive sportsmanship to the WLC team, opposing players and especially the referees. WLC parents will also be expected to show positive encouragement and refrain from expressing any criticism of players, coaches or officials. If there is a specific issue, please forward your concern in a timely manner to the WLC for the appropriate action. Any lack of sportsmanship of any kind from either the WLC player or WLC parent will not be tolerated and documented for disciplinary action. Disciplinary action could include suspension or possible termination from the team and loss of all registration fees. Also, our sanctioning body has guidelines that help our families understand why we as a Club take certain approaches - see here: Responsible sports parenting.
It is highly recommended that all parents attend The WLC's and US Lacrosse Org's 'Positive Coaching Alliance' meeting which strives to educate ALL participants in successfully engaging a positive playing experience for all involved. This meeting is MANDATORY for all coaching staff and Board members.
