They are all encouraged to gain certification through the Mass Youth Lax coaching certification program. MYL is a non-competitive League, with no standings and no playoffs. We strive to ensure that ALL players get the guidance necessary to play the sport at a high level while maintaining the integrity of MYL and its guidelines.
