The Lil Devs Summer Clinic is a clinic directed by the Burlington high school varsity lacrosse coaching staff. It is designed to provide kids with a week-long summer clinic which will focus on improving their lacrosse skills, IQ and most importantly having fun playing lacrosse! The clinic will feature current BHS Lacrosse players and former, now DI college players as the counselors. Over the past few seasons the BHS Coaching staff has made it a focal point in order to build a positive culture that stems down from the high school program directly to the youth program. This, in turn, will encourage players to pick up and stick with lacrosse throughout their high school career and continue to build our proud winning culture. In our Inaugural year (2021) we had over 60 players sign up for our clinic and we are hoping to see that number grow this year! Join us for a week full of lacrosse fun!

Published 3/7/2023, Updated 4/6/2023
Burlington Youth Lacrosse Association is proud to introduce our new Boys Select L5/6 coaches Nevin Kriger and Dakota Ikier. Both coaches are originally from Burlington and have DI and DII college lacrosse experience. We are confident Coach Kriger and Coach Ilkier will provide a great experience to our L56 Select team!
In years past, the L56 select team has been coached by Ryan Doherty "Dots." Due to a new role on the high school staff, he will no longer be able to fully commit to coaching the L56 Select Team. Coach Dots will help BYLA as Boys Select Team Director. We'd like to thank Coach Dots for all his efforts and countless hours as a youth coach these past few years.
Nevin Kriger: About Me - I started playing lacrosse through the Burlington youth lacrosse program when I was seven. I was a member of the classic and select teams in the BYLA program. I played my club ball for HGR from 7-12th grade. I attended Burlington High '17, where I was a four-year varsity player, three-year varsity starter, two-time Middlesex league all-star, and a team captain my senior year. After BHS, I attended Franklin Pierce University to play DII lacrosse as a starting freshman midfielder. After my freshman year at FPU, I transferred to the University of Vermont, where I played fall ball with the DI program before deciding to put my playing days behind me and focus on my studies. I am now a personal trainer and nutrition coach for high-level high school/collegiate athletes and general health populations.
Dakota Ikier: About me - Like Nevin, I, too, began my lacrosse career in the Burlington youth program. I was a member of both the classic and select teams and played club lacrosse at HGR. I attended Burlington High '17, where I was a four-year varsity player, three-year varsity starter, Middlesex league all-star, and a team captain my senior year. After graduation, I attended Franklin Pierce to play DII lacrosse as a defenseman. I chose to stay at FPU and played lacrosse for all four years.

Some things may work a little different than in the past but we are confident overall this will provide a much better experience.
