CYLAX General Information Registration


Parents & Players,

As we all know the COVID-19 pandemic has caused significant upheaval in all our lives.  Unfortunately, with the recent announcement by Governor Raimondo to keep schools closed for the remainder of the school year the RIYLL Board has voted to cancel the 2020 Season.  This is not the outcome any of us wanted nor could have predicted, but we hope that your player(s) will continue to stay active with various online lacrosse challenges or just throwing around in the backyard to keep a stick in their hand.

Part of this message is to let you know what we plan on doing to get money back to you related to the cancelled season.  Unfortunately, we had already placed our uniform order prior to any stay at home or distance learning plans were put in place.  If your child was a new player or you had ordered replacement pieces for an existing player, we will figure out a pick-up date in the near future, but that portion of your payment will not be refunded.

We are asking all parents to consider three options for what to do with your registration fee:

  1. Roll the balance forward to the 2021 season – this option is the easiest for ALL involved and requires NO more work on your partYou do not need to fill out either form or reply.
  2. Donate your fee to CYLAX – As many know we are a non profit and rely on registration and donations to continue to keep CYLAX the best program in the state. Even though the season has been cancelled we have still incurred many expenses.  If you are willing to donate your fee then it will allow us to continue to grow our program in the future.  It will also allow us to continue to give back to the community and former players specifically through the Mark Norton Memorial Scholarship.  If you select this option we will also provide a tax letter showing the amount donated so that you can use this for tax purposes.  
  3. Refund my fee less CYLAX expenses – this option will get you a refund of your fee less any uniform costs and merchant fees that CYLAX incurred. You can also be refunded minus any donation you would like to make just put the amount on the form. 

In order to get this done as quickly as possible, we ask that all parents decide by April 30.  If no option is selected by then we will assume Option 1 is your choice and the registration fee will be rolled forward to next season.


If you chose to be refunded please allow us time to process this refund. You do not need to email anyone regarding your decision as they will be logged in to the Google Doc and processed in order.

On behalf of the Board, I am truly sorry to have to send this letter and hope that all our CYLAX families continue to stay safe and healthy.  If we are able to plan some event for our players in the near future we will make sure to get that information out to everyone.  If you have any questions or concerns feel free to reach out to me or any of our Board members.
