The Lexington Lizards is an area-wide middle school and youth team consisting of players from any and all local public, independent, and home schools not represented by one of the other LYLA youth teams. Schools with representation on another team include Beaumont Middle School, Edythe J Hayes, Morton Middle School, The Lexington School, Tates Creek Middle School, and the Northern Kentucky (Newport/Covington area) schools.

To be a team player on the Lexington Lizards, the following conditions must be met:
1) The player must be a male between the ages of 9 and 14 (4th - 8th grade) to be eligible for the U-13 or U-15 teams.
2) The player must be a current member of US Lacrosse ($25/year).
3) The player\'s current school must NOT be represented by one of the teams in the list above. An exception to this rule applies to the Fall Skills Sessions. If the player\'s team is NOT conducting their own Fall Skills Session, he may work out with this Lizards in the Fall. He will be a part of his school\'s team in the Spring!
4 ) The player must have a passion for lacrosse, an interest in learning new skills and fundamentals, and a desire to participate on a competitive team--in general to HAVE FUN!
In addition, parents are asked to be active members of the program providing support as "team mom or dad" (coordinator of volunteer efforts and board member of LYLA), time-keepers, score-keepers, orange wedge/power drink providers, transportation/car-poolers to local games, and our SUPER FANS!
Practices and Games
During the Fall Season (October - November), skills development clinics are held once weekly to instruct on stick skills, throwing, catching, shooting, and other fundamentals of the game. The only equipment required for the Fall Season is a lacrosse stick. During the Spring Season (late February - May), full practices are held to develop team dynamics, initiate physical contact, and practice offensive and defensive plays. Full equipment including helmet, shoulder pads, elbow/arm pads, gloves, cleats, mouthpiece, and an athletic supporter is required.
