Youth Bureau Players.
The lacrosse programs for our younger players are organized by the Ithaca Youth Bureau. Programs are set up for players in three age groups including: grades (1 & 2), grades (3 & 4), and grades (5 & 6).

Practices, scrimages and games are held both at IHS and at the Cass Park Fields. The Youth Bureau program is organized into two sessions, including a House League for learning skills and then a Travel League for playing other teams in the region.
