HYL - Hamburg Youth Lacrosse

About Us

Hamburg Youth Lacrosse (HYL) is a lacrosse organization serving the WNY community.  Our mission is to continue to promote the principles of leadership, character, teamwork and sportsmanship instilled by our founder, Ed Van Tine.  

Ed Van Tine moved to Hamburg in the early 1970s equipped with the knowledge and drive to create Western New York's first lacrosse program.  In 1976, Ed brought a band of brothers, known by the locals as "The Hamburg 10", throughout New York State to play his unique up-tempo brand of lacrosse.  The community and the state took notice and soon young men throughout Western New York wanted to come to The Nike Base to learn from the man who would become legendary for his passion, intensity and uncompromising will to be the best.

Since those early days, Hamburg Lacrosse programs have grown and are now some of the most respected and successful programs in New York. Hamburg Lacrosse programs have served more than 270 lacrosse families in the Hamburg Central district. In 2007, Varsity Coach Jerry Severino carried on Van Tine's successful legacy and won Hamburg High's first section championship. Since then, Hamburg High has remained a state powerhouse winning four more section championships and sending several athletes to further their careers at the collegiate level.

HYL strives to bring the best to our young players. In Spring 2019, we opened enrollment to all WNY players. The future of lacrosse is looking brighter every day and Hamburg Youth Lacrosse is a shining example of community, character and strength. Come on out and see us!
