From Patti Deegan.
Last Friday our city's new Youth Lacrosse league had registration and a fun day at Vinal Tech Field. The Lacrosse players spent the morning learning skills and the highlight was a scrimmage with Hand of Madison coached by Jeff Lombardo. Middletown Lacrosse President Heather Iaderosa was a female Lacrosse player at Hand High School and it was great to see the two teams be a bit competitive and still have fun while working on skills. Pizza and friendship was a great way to end the morning.
This is the second year lacrosse is being offered in Middletown for boys and the first year lacrosse is being offered to girls. Lacrosse is open to boys and girls in grades 1-8. Heather Iaderosa is President of Middletown Youth Lacrosse. The Middletown Youth Lacrosse League is part of the Connecticut Valley Youth Lacrosse. There are four levels of play, Lightning is an in-house league consisting of both boys and girls in first and second grade. As players reach third grade, they are split into a boys league and a girls league: Bantam (3-4 grade); Junior (5-6 grade); and Senior (7-8) grade. Bantam, Junior and Senior teams will play their games against surrounding towns within the Connecticut Valley Youth Lacrosse (CVYL) league.
Middletown Youth Lacrosse day will be held on Sunday, April 28 at Woodrow Wilson Middle School at 311 Hunting Hill Avenue in Middletown from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm.
