AYLA on Hawaii News Now
UPDATE 1 of 2 - AYLA Code of Conduct

Aloha all -

Please take a moment to review the AYLA Code of Conduct. Acknowledgement of this code is part of registration in the league each season. 

The AYLA Code of Conduct is strict and serious in our sport to ensure everyone's safety and fun.  Everyone associated with Lacrosse is always expected to act with sportsmanship, dignity and respect for others.  This includes coaches, parents, players and referees.

Poor sportsmanship includes (but is not limited to):
·Arguing with coaches, officials, teammates, opponents  or spectators
·Using threatening or profane language or gestures
·Baiting or taunting coaches, officials, teammates, opponents or spectators
·Unsafe play
·Uncontrolled behavior in the bench area

Poor sportsmanship will carry, at a minimum, the following consequences:
1st Offense             Verbal warning
2nd Offense             Dismissal from the game
3rd Offense             Dismissal from the next game
4th Offense             AYLA Board Evaluation for dismissal for the season

We, parent(s) and player, have discussed the AYLA Code of Conduct and agree to abide by it.  We understand that there is no refund or recourse for dismissal from our program as a consequence of breaking this Code of Conduct.



  • Cheer on your player and team with positive encouragement. This is a game.
  • Call out good plays or shots whether it is for your team or your opponent. This is a game.
  • Let coaches coach and officials make the calls. This is a game.
  • Remember the kids. This is a game.


  • Refrain from negative calling out of players, teams, coaches, officials even if you disagree. This is a game.
  • Refrain from deriding players, teams, coaches, officials, and spectators. This is a game.

If you have a specific concern, please speak to your coach and Area Presidents.

Aloha Everyone!

Great turnout at last Sunday’s scrimmage!

AYLA volunteers have been working hard to fine-tune scheduling, field operations and other logistics to make sure things go more smoothly for this Sunday’s first games.

AYLA is 100% volunteer-run with no professional staff,

 so your patience is much appreciated.

If you can help us out, contact us! There’s always room for you!

A few updates:

1. Officiating Team – We have great team this year. Given our small league and teams with players of varying skill levels and mixed ages, our refs will be focusing on safety and fun. Rules will be adapted with coaches’ agreement and may be tweaked as season goes. Mahalo for your understanding!

  • Boys – Pete Morisseau is head of boys refs, along with Ethan “Murph” Murphy, “Puddy” Khemmanivong, and Bill Vanmanen.
  • Girls – Alex Kazlausky and Danya Hakeem are the lead girls refs, along with Sarah Cauthen filling in as needed. Contact, Meg Fosnock if you have any questions or concerns.

2. PHOTO Day is 4/14 Sunday – A schedule will be posted and your team parents will be getting more info soon.

3. Good Friday games 4/19 – New this season, we are having games on Good Friday afternoon. No games on Easter Sunday. Check the schedule at www.alohalax.org or the SI Play app for your game time.

4. Sports Illustrated Play smartphone app – Be sure to download on your phone. Players, Parents and Coaches can communicate quickest this way, and you can also check your game schedule and post pictures to share with your team. https://www.siplay.com/mobile-app

Passing of AYLA's Founding Father Rudie Schaefer

Aloha Rudie!

Good Morning friends,

It is with deep sadness that I report the passing of Rudie Schaefer last night at 7:44pm EST surrounded by family in Connecticut. The founder of AYLA and a patriarch of Hawaii lacrosse, Rudie left an indelible impact as a men's league player, lacrosse parent, coach, referree, and AYLA president for well over a decade since its founding in 2003. He will be greatly missed.

Please keep his family in your prayers as they go through this difficult time. We will share with you information regarding any future service/event planned in Rudie's honor.
