Martha's Vineyard Youth Lacrosse


Dear Lacrosse Coach, Player, and Parents,


On behalf of Martha’s Vineyard Youth Lacrosse- THANK YOU for making the trip to MV. We are certain you have many questions about accessing the island of Martha’s Vineyard.


Here is most of the information you will need:


MVYL pays for players and coaches to travel on the ferry (both ways)


We will email the visiting team a travel document with a “generic” amount of people about a week prior to coming over.  This must be PRINTED and brought to the ticket agent in Woods Hole.  They will then ask you for the exact amount of players/coaches and issue the corresponding tickets for the ferry.   


If you are traveling with a large number of spectators, Email: 

And ask for a group discount.  They will assign one person to be in charge of this so please keep that in mind if you use this option.  


Once you are on MV we will arrange for a van cab or a bus (depending) to take you to/from the field.  We always ask that players and coaches get first priority.  The bus should fit about 40 people with gear.  If you have a large group please let us know so we can arrange an extra bus ride.  Also note that some trips may be shared with another team coming over.  Due to covid19, spectators must arrange their own travel to the field. We encourage spectators to reach out to to schedule transportation to the field.


We do NOT have food available at the fields and the only bathroom is a port-o-potty so keep that in mind before you leave the ferry terminal.  We use the high school practice fields as our games fields, located at 100 Edgartown Vineyard Haven, Oak Bluffs MA 02557
