Striving to impact youth in the development of self-confidence, self-discipline, and dedication for the skills necessary to succeed in sports and in life. 

 

Est. 2008 - BYLSA has been committed to increasing awareness and opportunity for urban youth in the sport of lacrosse and beyond since 2008. By creating strategic alliances and partnerships locally, state-wide, and nationally, we "Strive To Impact Youth In The Development Of Self-Confidence, Self-Discipline, And Dedication For The Skills Necessary To Succeed In Sports And Life”.

Over the last ten years, BYLSA has grown to become an after-school-based, year-round program that provides academic intervention, behavioral support, mentoring, leadership training and sports instructions to student-athletes throughout Fairfield County! BYLSA has been a visionary program in the city of Bridgeport and we honored to have reached such a monumental milestone! 

One of BYL’s biggest goals is to diminish the disparity between the quality of holistic sports programs (programs that provide a complement of youth development supports, services, and opportunities) available to Bridgeport’s urban youth and those offered to their suburban counterparts. Additionally, another significant challenge impacting children in Bridgeport is youth violence. Youth violence is a complex social problem that requires a multifaceted approach of prevention, intervention, enforcement and social- emotional development. For these reasons, BYL has partnered with other long-standing nonprofits that work with children in Bridgeport to develop a plan focused on reducing youth violence while offering quality programming. This plan is our Bridgeport Youth Lacrosse Sports Academy (BYLSA).

The organization currently serves over 250 youth. BYLSA is the only program of its kind in Bridgeport CT that offers youth the chance to experience a unique opportunities not offered in all inner city environments. The alumni in our program have went on to do great things at great universities. We have sent kids to schools such as Denison University, Wentworth Institute, Jacksonville, Villanova University, Williams College, and many more. In order to further our mission and dream of empowering the youth in this area, we are raising funds for our fundraising efforts to cap off 2019. All proceeds donated to Bridgeport Youth Lacrosse will go to supplying equipment, paying for athletic trainers, and providing school tutors for our kids.
Thanks Again for Your Support!

The Means To Play

An amazing article written about the journey that Don Wilson, founder of Bridgeport Youth Lacrosse, traveled to acheive his dream of creating a premier lacrosse program in Bridgeport, CT. The article goes into detail of how Don used to commute to Greenwich everyday and the differences between the two cities. A difference is exactly what Don wanted to make for some Bridgeport kids who did not realize what resources were at their disposal.
