Ticks Alumni Spotlight - Scarlette Graybill

Scarlette grew up in Old Lyme and is currently a sophomore at Williston Northhampton.  She is on pace for a tremendous career at one of the top prep programs in New England.  After just her first year, she was named All NEPSAC.  With 66 goals through 13 games, she's posted 119 tallies in only a short time with the team.  Importantly, she's helped her team to an 12-1 mark in the 2024 campaign.  In the classroom she has a 4.0 GPA while carrying AP and Honors level courses.

What's made Scarlette successful? Hardwork and practice.  Building her foundation through the Ticks program, she works on her skills two hours a day.  She compliments her offensive game with focused effort winning the ball back and creating turnovers.  She cites the Ticks program with teaching her the game, but also giving her the confidence and determination to play at one of the highest levels of the game.

She plays with Dewlax Navy also and recently was named to the CONNY All American team for the summer.  She has the goal of taking her game to the next level in Division 1.

Scarlette, congratulations on your achievements to-date and representing our Ticks program.

A message as we start our season! Ticks Tough


Ticks seeks to create not only a fun and competitive lacrosse environment across our towns, but instill a strong sense of community, sportsmanship, grit, and team first attitude in its players.  Leading with the philosophy of “Ticks Tough”, we believe firmly that in being a great teammate, respecting coaches, officials, and opponents, and focusing on winning fundamentals we will create long lasting positive outcomes for our players on the field and off.  While winning is a goal, our organization is far more interested in the process that goes into it.  In registering your player for Ticks, they will not only enhance their passion and learning of lacrosse, but be challenged to be an excellent teammate, sportsman, and leader.

We encourage all our players, coaches, volunteers to abide by "Ticks Tough".  Being Ticks Tough means:

1.) Respect – Player respects coaches, referees, opponents and teammates

2.) 3 E’s – Effort, Enthusiasm, Energy on the field and off

3.) Fun – Player is having fun and ensures their teammates are as well

4.) Player Foundations built around:

•Dominating Groundballs

•Creating and Seeking Turnovers

•Stellar Defense

•Pass then Shoot Mentality


5.) Ours over Mine, We over Me Mentality

6.) Games make Good/Practice make Great


Bulldog Lacrosse Day Camp will be held on the campus of Yale University from June 24th to June 27th 2024, from 9:00am-1:00pm. This is a 4 day instructional camp that will provide the opportunity to learn from members of the Yale Men's Lacrosse Staff, area College Coaches, local High School Coaches, and Yale Men's Lacrosse Players. Each day will consist of both individual and team skill development. These skills will be incorporated into live situational and game like play as well. Campers entering grades 3-12 are eligible to attend.

Uniform Ordering and New Store!


Ticks parents, players and fans.  We are excited to begin the season.  Two important pieces in getting ready for the season.


1.) We will continue to use Squad Locker as our uniform provider.  Please order your uniforms as soon as possible.  The link on the site for "Team Store" will be active up until March 22nd.


2.) We are partnering with a new provider of fan and player gear (excepting uniforms).  Signature Lacrosse is the premier provider in club lacrosse.  We are excited by their new logos, gear, and also the ability of players to order gear through the site.  A portion of all proceeds goes to Ticks.  We will be doing several custom stores - Carhart, Nike, Under Armour - as well. Please take a look and order your gear today!


Come March 23rd, we will change the link to the Team Store to direct to Signature Lacrosse as well.
