2021 Board Meeting Overviews:

2021 May Boarding Meeting Overview:

1. End of Season Thank You! -  A special thank you to coaches, parents and players for sticking with us  as we restarted play in NY as Covid restrictions were easing up. We had a great turnout for the younger girls teams this year but fell a bit short with boys at the younger levels. We did our best to help support our Boys and Girls 7/8 teams, however the season was limited due to the restart of many of our modified opponent teams. Luckily Cornwall plans to have modified next year so all players should have more opportunities to play in years to come.

We thank Washingtonville for working with us to support our Boys K-2, Boys 3/4 teams and Girls 7/8 as we did not have enough players to field our own full teams. So encourage your players friends and neighbors to try lacrosse so we can built a bigger and better team next year.

Parents thank you for driving your kids to lacrosse and other sports, coaching, assistant coaching, and acting as team managers. Your volunteer efforts are the back bone of this organization and we appreciate your support. If you would like to provide feedback for the organization you may email or attend the end of the year meeting June 28th location TBD, check the website just prior. All members are welcome to join.

Coaches, thank you for your willingness to give back, dedication to the players, communications with families and scheduling your games for the season. We were lucky with weather cooperated most of the time and look forward to seeing you at the end of the year meeting open to all members on June 28th location TBD, check the website just prior.   

2. Executive Board Positions - We are respectfully requesting parents or relatives consider one of several board positions coming available in the 2022 season. As players age out, parents who have given so selflessly for their 2 year term will no longer be available to help. Prior board member are always willing to help new members until they get their feet  under them. Each year two members remain to carry on vital functions. We are seeking a new President (due to an unexpected need for relocation), Field/equipment manager and treasurer. Email questions or notes of interest to Get involved so your voice can be heard and make CYL a better recreation organization for our local youth.

3. Budget Review -  The board reviewed the budget line items this meeting. Savings were made having access to Laurel Crest Park this year for practice. While it may not be the best field in town, it has served us well. Equipment costs this year included new loaner goalie gear due to a USA Lacrosse safety mandate. We purchased several replacement nets for our goals and portable goalie creases. Annual club expenses include but are not limited to field rental costs at NYMA, referee fees, league fees, balls, paint to line the fields, web site fees, mail box fees,  uniform replacements, coaching gear, and registration fees for head coaches. Financial considerations and changes will be proposed at the end of the year meeting June 28th and all members are welcome to join.

4. CYL clinics - Recent Grad and CYL past player Gabe F. has been helping with our Boys 7/8 team this year and is interested on setting up camps and clinics so please visit every few weeks to see what we have planned. Keep up your skills or learn new ones in the off season. We will be having a winter after school activity at Cornwall Elementary at Lee road in January for new or experienced players. We are happy to work with COH and Willow Elementary Schools if someone has PTO contact information. If additional coaches are interested in running a clinics please email  

5. Lacrosse Players past HS/College or College Graduates - If you are looking to give back to the local lacrosse community or need community service we would love to hear from you. Whether you want to clinics this summer or help coaches next season please email so we can get you involved. All participants need to have USA Lacrosse Membership number and Level 1 coaching class is encouraged for all coaching positions.

Additionally we have paid work to paint lines during the season. Training will be provided. If you or a friend are interested please contact   

6. Gear Donations - A special thank you goes to many families who donated lacrosse gear. We have about 10 sets of elbow pads, 4 shoulder pads and two helmets for boys. We are working on a lending policy and would like a volunteer next year to take a board position to help with field and equipment management.

We would love to have more donations if you plan on getting rid of gear or you know someone who no longer plays. We do not have any girls equipment to date. Your last chance to drop it off will be June 28th at the end of the season meeting. Location TBD but likely at the town park pavilion if Munger Cottage is not free.

7. Wall Ball - We have had another new idea come to light to make the ball wall a possibility. We have reconsidered a look into this project and have started to discuss this new idea with the town. Donation refunds are available if you have a canceled check noting the donation was for CYL ball wall project. This information has been updated on our website.
