REGISTRATION OPEN NOW!

Welcome to Spring 2023!

On the heels of one of our most successful seasons to date in 2022, we're excited to announce the opening of our Spring 2023 Registration! 

For those of you who are new to our program, welcome! We're excited to meet you and welcome you to the Cannons family. For our returning families, welcome back! We measure success by the number of kids who return year after year, more so than wins and losses. 

Please see below for details on the Spring 2023 season. We have addressed many of the primary topic areas, but encourage you to email bedfordcannonspresident@gmail.com with specific questions. 

Onward to 2023! 

Program Change Announcement: Girls Grades 7 & 8

We are excited that Lurgio will be offering lacrosse as a school sport for both Boys and Girls this Spring.  Unfortunately, based on the historical registration numbers we have had in the past for our Girls 14U program, at this time, we do not anticipate offering a Spring lacrosse program at this age group.  However, we will be offering an "indoor only" option for this age group to help prepare those athletes for the upcoming Spring Season. We will continue to assess the situation and should there be enough interest to field a team at this group in our Girls program than we will attempt to do so. The indoor only option for this age group will be an option during registration.

Out of town players
The Bedford Cannons program is open to all residents of Bedford.  In the event your town does not offer a lacrosse program at your desired age group, there is potentially an opportunity to play with the Bedford Cannons.  However, please keep in mind, that this opportunity is only available if your current town doesn't offer a lacrosse program at your desired age group and is subject to the status of our registration numbers.  Should you have any questions, please reach out to bedfordcannonspresident@gmail.com.

Register for Spring 2023

If you intend on playing Cannons in Spring 2023, please don't wait to register. It's almost a certainty that we'll need to limit roster size this season as we've done in years past. We are one of NH's largest lacrosse organizations, and we often have to limit registrations to ensure we can provide the best experience to our athletes. If you plan on playing, don't wait to register!  We cannot guarantee your roster spot if you do not register before February 1, 2023.

REGISTRATION WILL CLOSE ON FEBRUARY 1, 2023!

Indoor Skills Sessions

We view our indoor skills sessions as a huge differentiator between the Cannons and other programs, and value the 'head start' our athletes get by attending. 

Please see below for important notes around this year's indoor skills sessions:

  • Indoor skills sessions are included in the tuition for anyone who registers for Grades 1-8. Only athletes who have registered may attend. Full equipment is required for indoor skills. 
  • Indoor skills are not for Little Laxers.
  • Skills will be run on Tuesdays and Wednesdays starting January 18th through the first week of April at the NH Sportsplex in Bedford NH. 
  • Days, times, and all details related to the Indoor Skills can be found here: https://www.bedfordcannons.org/news_article/show/849095

Travel Team Evaluations

Specific details regarding evaluations will be announced once they are finalized. Please note that your choice to participate in indoor sessions will have no bearing on your team selection.  

A quick note about evaluations - when it comes to tryouts for the Cannons, we do NOT "cut" players. Our goal is to provide a nurturing environment for athletes in Bedford to learn the game of lacrosse. Our evaluations are designed to ensure that players are placed on the teams that will best promote that development. More details regarding evaluations will be shared as they are finalized. 

For those age groups that will require evaluations, they will take place during the weeks of February 6 and February 13. In addition to our regularly scheduled indoor skills nights, we have also reserved time on Friday evening at the NH Sportsplex during both of those weeks. This was done so that we can offer additional schedule flexibility for each athlete to be evaluated, should this be required.
