US Lacrosse Membership is REQUIRED

IMPORTANT REGISTRATION INFORMATION

  • You must obtain a valid US LACROSSE (USL) number prior to attempting to register. If the USL number is not valid for the season start, you will not be able to complete the registration process. If the USL registration is valid now, but expires before the season start or anytime during the season, then it will still reject the USL number and you will not be able to complete the registration process.  It is a $30 annual fee.
  • The players USL account information must match the information that is being used to create the PYLAX registration on the new site. The telephone, address, email, and player names all must match or the USL number will be rejected in the PYLAX registration system. For example, if the mother created the USL account with her email, and the father creates the PYLAX registration, he must use the mother's info in order for it to accept the USL number.
  • Alternatively, when the parents update the USL account for the upcoming year, they can just use the same information to create the PYLAX registration immediately afterwards.
  • The PYLAX general liability coverage is provided through USL and all players must be members. There are no exceptions.
