Registration for the Spring Season is OPEN


Returning and new players: 

Working through the USALax membership process can be a pain when done in conjunction with our system. 

If you have a few minutes, try getting that done before starting your Cocheco registration. 

Maybe it will smooth out the process and save you some headache.



Registration is now open for the spring 2023 lacrosse season.  

Practices will start indoors in March. Games will begin in April.

Spread the word to your friends, classmates, and neighbors. 

All players of all abilities are welcome. 



Officials:  register for training and/or renewal NOW.  Games are available on Saturdays and Sundays.  Kids at least 15 as of April 1 this year and adults are eligible.  For more details,

www.NHYLA.org   Click on Home, then OFFICIAL REGISTRATION


Coaches:  returning, ready to commit, or kinda curious?  Trainings are currently available online.  Completing a training session does not obligate you to coach, but it is guaranteed to boost your Lax IQ.  Get started now!  Background check is included in the price of your USALacrosse membership -- and Cocheco will reimburse your cost any season that you coach :  )       

Additionally, Rules Interpretations meetings for coaches will be happening in March. 



Various dates will be added to the general calendar shortly.  Watch for upcoming board meetings, parent meetings, and more!



MINIS for Pre-School & Kindergarten
Cocheco MINIs is our developmental program for preschool and kindergarten boys and girls, as well as first-graders who aren't quite ready for team play.  It was universally felt that while our youngest players really enjoyed practices, games were a little much for them and did very little to improve their skills. 

-Saturday morning skills sessions run an hour and introduce the skills and concepts needed for team play.  The field is behind the Strafford County Courthouse.

-MINIs is co-ed and requires only a mouthguard and sneakers, even for the boys. 

-Stick, foam ball, and a t-shirt are provided.

$60 gets you in the mix:  $25 to Cocheco Lacrosse and $35 for a membership with USALax. 

-Register by April 1.  Sessions run Saturdays starting April 22 through June 10, except Memorial Day weekend.

Still have questions?

Call Adam Hughes (boys) at 603-781-9392 or David Whitney (girls) at 207-351-5537

Please, make the effort to volunteer at least one hour between now and the end of the season.  There are LOTS of little tasks.  Many hands make light work!



Practices OUTSIDE ... brrr!  For all practices, players need to be on the field BY the start time.   All gear on, including some layers, and ready for warmups.   As our New England spring weather rages on, please be sure to check your email for any schedule changes. GAMES:   Remember this is youth sports.   It's about having fun, being a good teammate, and improving lax skills.  At all times, be respectful to each other, to officials, and to opposing teams.  Whether you're the home team or visitor, whether leaving the team bench or the fan area, clean up your stuff. GO, COCHECO!

MODIFY your record:  login in the upper right corner.   Enter your email address and password.  Your family record will show.  Use this to add or change your data and to register.  If you need more info, send your question to: lmnn@stacy.net. (Asking for help is different than having someone do it for you.)

Hard work beats talent when talent fails to work hard.

PLAYER AWARDS:  Cocheco is a development program; as such, we are not all that concerned with our teams' records.  Rather, our emphasis is on ensuring players improve in measurable ways each and every season.  As players and as people.  MVP designations are traditionally bestowed according to data.  Cocheco gives recognition for contributions that can't be so concretely measured.  Our Nesman and Hitchcock awards recognize the player who works hardest at improving as a player, while Heyliger winners are recognized for being the quintessential teammate. As these character traits and habits are built over time, these acknowledgments start for players in 5th grade.  The awards are given in honor of 3 men who worked so diligently to establish the Cocheco Lacrosse program:  Don Heyliger, Greg Nesmann and Larry Hitchcock.   Coaches will discuss these concepts with their teams.  Feel free to start a conversation at home. The Dover Recreation Department holds an annual Heyliger Awards dinner.  As the season goes on, please watch out for those who go above and beyond in helping make Cocheco such a terrific program for your kids and pass your suggestions along to any of our board members. A list of past winners can be found on the award tabs.  If we're missing someone, please send an email to lmnn@stacy.net 

Registration or uniform refunds are handled on a case-by-case basis.  USALax membership is non-refundable.  Some financial assistance is available. Please contact our treasurer at Dory.Dube86@gmail.com.
