Falmouth Youth Lacrosse Association

Welcome to the home of The Falmouth Youth Lacrosse Association.

Our mission is to promote and support the game of lacrosse for players of all ages in Falmouth, Maine.

First played by Native American Indians over 350 years ago, the game of lacrosse is America's first and fastest team sport.  It is fun to play, exciting to watch, and requires physical agility, speed, and endurance.

Many accomplished lacrosse players are well-rounded student athletes who go on to play at some of the best Colleges and Universities in North America.

We welcome your participation!

Thank You to Our 2016 FYLA Sponsors!
