BUFFALO, N.Y. (October 21, 2016) — The Buffalo Bandits today announced the team will host a youth lacrosse league at KeyBank Center this coming fall and winter.
This year’s Buffalo Bandits Youth Lacrosse League will have two divisions, one for experienced indoor lacrosse players, and another for players with minimal indoor lacrosse background. The latter division will be geared toward high school teams and players looking to stay sharp during the winter in preparation for the spring season.
Individuals may register as free agents for $125 and full teams may join for a fee of $2,000. All registrants will be guaranteed six round-robin games and at least two playoff games, and each player will also be given a Buffalo BanditsYouth Lacrosse League jersey.
In addition to official league jerseys, full team registration comes with a team-signed Bandits jersey to be used for fundraising purposes, a team yearbook and 20 ticket vouchers for a 2017 regular-season Bandits home game. New this year, each team will get a meet-and-greet with the Bandits player of their choice, based on availability. Teams are limited to a maximum roster of 20 players.
Games will be played under modified NLL rules and will consist of two 20-minute halves with a running clock, with the exception of the last two minutes of the second half.
The winners of each division will receive a championship hat, T-shirt and medal. The winning teams will also be honored on the floor at the Bandits’ home game against the Vancouver Stealth on Jan. 21, 2017.
The games will be played on Nov. 26 and 27, Dec. 10 and 11, Dec. 30, Jan. 13 and 14, and Jan. 21, with times to be determined later. League schedules, statistics and standings will be available on Bandits.com.
