Welcome to Guardians Youth Lacrosse!

Guardians Youth Lacrosse is a travel lacrosse league based out of Boylston, Massachusetts. GYL membership is composed of students and parents from Berlin, Boylston and West Boylston.  Our program currently offers both boys and girls teams ranging from U9 to U15 (grades 1-8). The boys program is part of the West Central Region of the Massachusetts Bay Youth Lacrosse League (MBYLL). The girls program is part of the MetroWest North division of the Massachusetts Bay Girls Lacrosse League (MBGLL).

Guardians Youth Lacrosse is a parent-run volunteer organization. Our success is directly related to the passion and support of the parents and families that help with the many aspects that go into running a first-class youth program. We depend on our parent volunteers to provide a fun, organized, and positive experience for our players and truly appreciate all of their efforts. We do everything we can to keep our fees low but that is nearly impossible without your help.  We need volunteers to keep our program going....WE NEED YOU!   Whether it's being a youth coach, field volunteer, volunteer organizer, helping with the jamboree, or the many other roles we need help with (both on and off the field), you can help make GYL even stronger. We always need new families to maintain what has become a model youth program in Central Mass. If you aren't involved yet, Please get involved and help out where ever you can to contribute to our efforts. To ask about how you might be able to help, please reach out to our BoD at .
