This year we are happy to announce that we will once again providing shorts for all DYLA players who register during the regular registration period. The most important information to remember is that in order for your child to have their shorts provided by DYLA, you must register your child during the regular registration period (November 2nd – January 13th). Any registration done after January 13th will result in you having to order shorts directly from Lax.com.
Parents must enter the size of shorts for your son and/or daughter to complete the regular registration. The size entered cannot be changed after January 13th. If you need to change the size of the shorts before the cut-off date, please email the change to Karen Bogdan at email@example.com by midnight on January 13th.
Sizing charts are located in the Documents tab on the website for the girls and boys shorts. Try-on dates for shorts are available every Saturday starting November 5th from 9am to 1pm until January 7th at Lax.com’s store location at 345 Wilson Avenue Norwalk, CT.

Emails are generated and sent for all changes to the schedule, and you can link your calendars online to your player(s) schedules through the website. It is vital that you have correct email addresses listed so that you receive our communications. You can add/edit/delete emails and other contact information by going to "Edit My Account" on the website and logging in to your account.
Boys at all ages are required to play with full gear, which includes a stick, helmet (may be a hockey helmet), gloves, shoulder and arm pads, a cup and a mouth guard for boys 3rd - 8th. Girls at all ages are required to have a girls stick, face mask and mouth guard.
For those of you who are new to the program, you may not know this but DHS appears to have its own polar vortex, primarily in March and April. Dress accordingly. Please add layers, it always feels 10-20 degrees colder on the oval than it does in your driveway.
The DHS location is terrific for allowing us to be in one place for all of our home activities, but the traffic can be tough. Please allow for plenty of time to get your players to the fields. Plan on parking and walking the younger players to their fields, do not let them walk alone across the parking lots. Drive safely and pay attention as there are a lot of small bodies around.
