Congratulations Wissahickon High School Ranked #9 in the 2014 US News & World Report Rankings of Pennsylvania High Schools !!!!!!! and Wissahickon High School Ranked #5 Pennsylvania High School in Washington Post's 2014 Survey of 'America's Most Challenging High Schools' !!!!
Wissahickon Boys Youth Lacrosse Club Inc., a Pennsylvania Nonprofit Corporation, (Wisslax) is a member of the Southeastern Pennsylvania Youth Lacrosse Association (SEPYLA) which arranges competition between Wisslax and neighboring community clubs.
Wisslax is a non-profit youth lacrosse organization which strives to teach the sport of lacrosse to boys who reside within the boundaries of the WissahickonSchool District that are in grades 1 – 8 (youth programs) and 9-12 (high school programs).
AT ALL WISSLAX LEVELS THE COACHES EXPECT WISSLAX TO BE YOUR SONS PRIMARY LACROSSE TEAM DURING THE MONTHS OF MARCH, APRIL AND MAY, with the only exception being middle school lacrosse teams. Coaches have the right to move a player down to a less competitive team that do not honor their team commitment through attending practices, SEPYLA game schedules and team scheduled tournaments without refund if the conflicts are because of another lacrosse related commitment.
BOUNDARIES: Boys whose home address resides within the Methacton & Norristown School District boundaries are also permitted by SEPYLA to participate in Wisslax youth programs but because of space limitations and need for coaches at all levels NEW (have not participated with us in the past) non-wissahickon school district residents will be placed on a waitlist and then released once we can confirm our numbers and ensure we have the proper program support and potential coaches. This allows Wisslax to ensure the proper player to coach ratio for a more enjoyable experience. Boys living in the Methacton school district, per SEPYLA rules, can also sign up for neighboring leagues in Perkiomen Valley, North Penn, Collegeville, or any other neighboring school district lacrosse program
Currently, Wisslax high school programs are subject to availability or invitation only and are limited to boys in grades 9 through 12 who attend Wissahickon High School.
Boys in grades 5 - 8 play a travel schedule, organized by SEPYLA (www.sepyla.org), and are placed on teams based on ability.
All boys in grades 1 – 4 participate in Wisslax’s intramural program which is designed to introduce new players to the game by integrating them with veteran 1st - 4th grade players. This format has been proven in some of the most successful lacrosse communities to be the best way to increase level of play for beginners and get them up to speed at a rapid pace.
The primary season for Wisslax youth programs (grades 1-8) takes place in the spring from February to June, any fall or winter type programs are usually secondary and not part of the normal Wisslax program.
Wisslax is truly a community organization with a community focus of teaching the sport of lacrosse to the boys in our community. Wisslax is always looking for volunteers so please let us know how you are willing to help.
