Tribal News and Updates

Spring 2017 Registration is Open!

Registration for Spring Lacrosse is now open.  Spring lacrosse starts in March (indoors) and runs through mid-June.  Tribal lacrosse welcomes all children living in Boxford, Topsfield and Middleton in grades K - 8.  

Age Groups:

  • Little Laxers (for girls and boys) : K 
  • U9: 1st and 2nd grade
  • U11:  3rd and 4th grade
  • U13:  5th and 6th grade
  • U15: 7th and 8th grade


· Little Laxers:  $75

· U9:  $150

· U11 – U15: $195

Tribal Lacrosse offers a 50% discount for the 3rd+ player in any family (Not applicable to Goalie fees). In order for the registration system to recognize that your family is registering multiple players, please register all of your players at this time. On the Summary Page, there is a link near the bottom to "Register Another Player" - please click on this link to ensure that all of your family's players are registered within the same order. Failure to do so will result in a forfeiture of your family's discounted rates.

This year we will be offering a 50% discount for U13 and U15 goalies. Just select the appropriate goalie option in the "level of play" menu. If your child signs up as a goalie for the 2016 season they will be required to play the majority of the season in the goalie position. If your child decides not to play goalie after they have registered, you will be required to pay the remaining 50% of the registration fee.

Financial Assistance

Tribal grants scholarships to families with income hardship or other extenuating circumstances such as temporary unemployment, number of students participating in athletics of co-curricular activities, or other situations.  To apply, please contact Bonni Theriault at or another Tribal Board member, before December 1st. 

We need your help!

Tribal is a volunteer organization and we rely on the support of parents to make the program a success.  We have many different ways to get involved.  Please sign up to help when you register your child.  

Our greatest need right now is for coaches for the younger age groups.  Please consider helping out as a coach, even if you haven't played lacrosse.

Late Registration:  After December 15, 2016, a late fee of $50 will be applied to all registrations.

Refund Policy:  If a player registers, then decides not to play, the full amount (minus a $10 per player administration fee) will be refunded if we are notified during the regular registration period.  If we are notified when registration is in Late Mode, 50% of the fee will be refunded. Once indoor practice has started, fees are no longer refundable. Late Fees are non-refundable.

Recently two types of lacrosse helmets were deemed NOT certified by NOCSAE and therefore not safe to use.  One of those helmets, the Cascade R, now has a procedure in place to modify and re-certify its use at no cost to the customer.  Go to The other helmet, the Warrior Regulator, has not yet announced plans for modification.

** Please note that Cascade has other helmet models with the letter "R" in them, such as CPX-R, CPV-R, and CS-R, which are NOT included in this issues; they are still certified as NOCSAE approved.
