All teams (with the exception of High School) practice and play home games at Nature Hill Intermediate School (NHI) located at 850 Lake Drive, Oconomowoc.
The High School practices between Nature Hill and the Oconomowoc High School and plays home games at the Oconomowoc High School.
Away games will be played at various schools in our league. MAYLA tries to schedule each team's games about half home and half away. The list of youth teams in our league and their locations can be found at:
Youth teams in grades 1st through 8th have games that are held on Saturday and/or Sundays. The games schedule will be released and posted as soon as it is available from MAYLA. Games are played on Saturday and Sunday throughout the season except for the dates shown below.
Mother's Day Weekend - No Games
Memorial Day weekend - No Games
High School teams play during the week. The game schedules will be released and posted as soon as they are available from the Classic 8 conference.
Last day of the season is typically the first week of June.
Indoor practices offer a great opportunity for newcomers to experience the sport or simply observe the game in action. A parent must complete a waiver for their child to participate. Anyone can attend indoor practice up until February 1st without having to register.
Additionally, we organize both our own and parks & rec summer camps each year. When possible, we aim to offer similar camps in the fall as well. These camps take place at Nature Hill or Roosevelt Park and are open to anyone interested in lacrosse. Please note that some small fees may apply for each camp. We also host a High Interest Day in the fall, typically in October.
To be eligible for an OLC team, players must be in 1st grade or above. MAYLA categorizes teams based on grade level rather than age. Additionally, players must reside within the OASD district. For more information, please refer to the League Structure Document. If you have questions regarding your child's specific eligibility, feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org. Players from other districts may request to join an Oconomowoc team through MAYLA/WLF if their local school does not have an existing lacrosse program.
The Boys High School team currently maintains a partnership with the Pewaukee School District.

If you have any additional questions, don't hesitate to email email@example.com. We'll make sure to answer your questions or forward them to the appropriate board member or coach.
To help prepare parents for the upcoming season, we host pre-season meetings that provide important information and paperwork that may need to be signed. We highly encourage all parents to attend these meetings to ensure that they are fully informed about the expectations and logistics of the season.
If you are unable to attend, please don't hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will work with you to ensure that you receive all the necessary information and paperwork, so you can feel confident and prepared for the start of the season.
In order to register your child for OLC, they must have a current US Lacrosse number that is valid until the end of the season they are registering for. Since most memberships are valid for a year, they need to be renewed annually. During registration, you will be prompted to update or sign up for a US Lacrosse membership. Alternatively, you can sign up separately at http://www.uslacrosse.org/membership, but make sure to note your player's membership number, as it will be required during registration.
It's important to note that you can complete registration without immediate payment. However, early registration is crucial in helping the board plan appropriately for the season. Please keep in mind that payment must be received prior to the start of the season, otherwise your child will not be able to participate.
Note: Hot4Lax rents equipment; you can check out their website for more information.
Parents, Coaches, Players and Friends of the WLF,
After extensive research and discussion, the Wisconsin Lacrosse Federation has developed a Concussion Policy which is to be followed by all WLF member teams. Please read the policy carefully. The information it contains is for all those involved in lacrosse. It will help define each person's role in determining whether a player should be allowed to play or not. Coaches and parents, please share this and discuss with your players at all levels. The individual may be this best at determining a potential concussive injury.
Please, let me know if you have any questions at all regarding concussions. I am not an appropriate healthcare professional, but I have been learning a lot, and the bottom line is...
...when in doubt, sit them out.
Wisconsin Lacrosse Federation
