FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE            October 15, 2018  

FREDERICA, Del. – The DE TURF Sports Complex announced today the launch of a brand new youth lacrosse program. The Bucks Lacrosse Program will feature opportunities for youth in grades Kindergarten through 8th grade to experience one of the fastest growing sports in the United States.

Bucks Lacrosse is an instructional/travel program that will replace Milford Youth Lacrosse Association (MYLA) in the Eastern Shore Youth Lacrosse Association League (ESYLA). The ESYLA membership features teams from across the Eastern Shore including Kent County, Queen Anne’s, Dorchester, Caroline, Atlantic, Talbot, Beach Lacrosse, Fruitland and Camden Mid State. Practices will be at the DE Turf Sports Complex (4000 Bay Road, Frederica, DE 19946) on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Games will be on Saturdays. The program will run March through May.

“Growing participation in youth sports and creating opportunities for youth to play, learn, grow and compete in Kent County is one of our key missions,” said DE TURF executive director, Chris Giacomucci. “We have been offering lacrosse clinic programs for over a year and to now be at a point where we can offer a plethora of affordable, high quality youth lacrosse programming through the Bucks on pristine turf fields is extremely exciting. We want all youth in Kent County to have an opportunity to play at DE TURF”. 

A unique feature of the program is that every team will be coached by a certified lacrosse coach with significant college playing and coaching experiences. Below is the coaching staff for the boys program. A girls program is currently in development and will be announced at a later date.

“I have been fortunate to coach and play the sport of lacrosse for many years”, said Coach Don Christie. “To provide opportunities to teach the sport at a first class facility like DE TURF is a unique opportunity for our youth in the area and will  serve as a great platform to grow the sport of lacrosse in central Delaware. Similar to the other DE TURF programming, parents should expect a highly organized product with a strong focus on development and having fun.”

Registration opens January 1, 2019. For more information, visit or call 302-330-8873
