Welcome to the Butler Youth Lacrosse 2023 Season
We are looking forward to a great season!
Welcome to the BYLAX 2023 season! We are very excited about this upcoming winning year! While in the off season the board has been diligently working to prepare a fun season full of heart pounding excitement. Our focus has been to improve on all the success that we had last year and to continue to make BYLAX the gold standard in Western PA lacrosse.
Some changes this year include some new coaches. We would like to welcome Alana Collins (Girl’s team) and Cole Hurley (U12) to our team as new head coaches. Alana brings her playing experience from her time with our organization up through her senior year at Butler High School. Cole also brings his playing experience from BYLAX and Butler High. Both will bring a player’s perspective to our organization and help your kids understand and apply solid lacrosse fundamentals throughout the year.
Along with Alana (U14 & 12 girls) and Cole (U12) we would like to welcome back Terry Davis (u14), Dominik Fudoli (U14), Dave Zaccari (U10), Chad Heichel (U10), Josh Wood (U8), Cassie Wood (U10 Girls), Megan Hankey (Girl’s teams) & Erik Swanson (Girl’s teams.) This truly is an amazing group of people that volunteer their time to help our organization teach your kids how to play and love the fastest game on two feet.
Some Important dates for the upcoming season:
Meet the players March 9th at 6:00pm in the Butler Intermediate Cafeteria B
Night of the races April 21st at the Butler S.O.I doors will open at 5:00 pm , Races 6:00-10:00 pm
Please look for updates via SportsEngine and our Facebook page.
This year we ask you to download the SportsEngine app to your mobile device. This will be our PRIMARY way of getting information (game cancellations, field changes etc.) out to the group. The info will most likely be shared either by the coach or board members on the chat page. We will try (time permitting) to get information out via email however information changes happen last minute so I would encourage you to check the app often for changes.
This year will bring new changes to how the concession stand and sideline table will operate. Once the schedule is finalized we will send out a communication that the Sign up genius (or similar app) will be available to sign up for concession stand and side line volunteer positions. If the slots are not filled for the times during a game the night prior (to that game) the concession stand will close during that time, If the side line positions are not filled the night before the game we will be forced to forfeit that game and it cannot be rescheduled. The board looked into charging a refundable fee for those positions however we decided that we did not want the extra upfront cost to burden a family that might hinder a child from playing. We the board hope that every family would fill at least two (2) slots throughout the season. Thank you very much for your help.
Finally, this will be my last season as the President of BYLAX. I will be moving into the trustee position vacated by Devan Davis. Although I will not be completely out of the organization I feel that it is time for some fresh ideas to help move BYLAX into the future. It has been an amazing experience serving the players, families and friends of Butler and beyond. The BYLAX families are unlike any other and I appreciate all the support while I have served. Thank you and Lets go BYLAX
