'A' League
The 'A' League is for boys in the 7th and 8th grade. They compete in the South Eastern Pennsylvania Lacrosse Association (SEPYLA) . Depending on the number of participants, the boys are divided into multiple teams.
A1 - Designed to be a primarily 8th grade team of highly skilled and experienced players who are in this playoff division level. This level does not exclude 7th graders who possess those type of high level skills and experience. Games are usually played on Saturdays.
A2 - Designed to be a primarily 8th grade team of average skill and experience. An A2 team may also be comprised of mostly 7th graders who were a highly competitive B1 team the preceding year with a few 8th graders. Typically, 1/4 of the team should be in 8th grade. Games are usually played on Saturdays.
A3 - Designed to be a mix of 7th and 8th graders of beginning or average skill and experience. Games are usually played on Saturdays and Sundays.

Players trying out for the 'A1' and 'B1' level teams are expected to make a commitment to lacrosse over other recreational and youth sports activities. Absences from practices and games will lead to reduced playing time and possible dismissal from the team. Players wishing to play a travel schedule but unable to make this kind of commitment should let coaches know that they are trying out for a 'A2'and 'B2'level travel teams only. At all levels, excessive or unexcused absences may lead to reduced playing time.
