Question: When does Los Alamos Youth Lacrosse (LAYLAX) season begin and end?
Answer: Typically, high school age players (grades 9-12) practice 4-5 nights a week beginning in February, as soon as the fields are available without causing damage. Weather, particularly weather that risks damaging the fields, may cause some practices to be cancelled. Game play usually begins in March. State championship games are held in late April and early May. Youth players typically begin practice in early to mid March, with games from late March through mid-May.
