Join Petaluma Youth Lacrosse

Petaluma Youth Lacrosse is a non-profit with a mission to promote the game of lacrosse.  Introducing the game to new players is one of our most important responsibilities. 

The game can be intimidating to new players and parents unfamiliar with the rules, equipment and game play.

At PYL, we welcome new players and parents.  Please visit our FAQs for more information, or reach out to us with any questions.
