Welcome

MINNETONKA LACROSSE 2020 REGISTRATION & CANCELLATION POLICY UPDATE

The Minnetonka Lacrosse Association Board would like to provide an update on extended spring/summer registration, as we work to manage the impacts of COVID-19. As a Board, we are committed to providing each player with the opportunity to play lacrosse this year. We will continue to follow the lead of the CDC, state, and Minnetonka School District. Our hope is to begin practices and games as soon as it is safe to do so.

REGISTER NOW, PAY LATER

If you have not registered for the spring and summer lacrosse seasons, we have extended the deadline until Sunday, April 19th.  Please register your players for lacrosse as soon as possible — we have implemented a "register now, pay later" policy, so you will not be charged at this time. For MLA to make season plans, it is critical that we know how many players intend to participate.

As soon as the Board determines the scope of the seasons, we will set appropriate registration fees. All registrants will receive an email with information on fees and how to pay them. Fees may be prorated. If financial circumstances require you to cancel, there will be no penalty.

GIRLS 2020 YOUTH SUMMER LACROSSE

Summer 10U, 12U, 14U (June-end to July) Tournament July 31-August 2nd.

League

The MSSLAX competitive league that we play in encompasses all girls' lax teams in the twin cities and surrounding area (e.g. Edina, Stillwater, Eden Prairie, Lakeville. etc.).

Teams

Minnetonka is planning on fielding one to two teams at each age level (10U, 12U, 14U). Once the first team threshold is met, a team will be added if registration numbers permit. Final team count will depend on participation, so sign up early to ensure your spot on the team.

ELIGIBILITY

Minnetonka serves the Minnetonka School District as stated in its mission. For this reason we give priority for roster spots to players who reside, or open-enroll, in the Minnetonka School District. We welcome players from outside the Minnetonka School District if space allows at the close of registration. Those players should email girlsyouthdir@mtkalax.org to be added to a "first come, first served" wait list. 

Outdoor Schedule

Plan on 2-3 outdoor practices a week, weekday evenings and weekends weather permitting.


Games vary week to week and can be on any day of the week and begin in April for Spring season.  All players are expected to attend both practices and games.

2020 Costs

Summer registration fees:

 

  • 10U $275 per player
  • 12U $325 per player
  • 14U $325 per player

Uniform

Before you register, please make sure your daughter tries on her old uniform to see if it still fits.  A few girls last year found out after registration that they needed a bigger uniform.


If this is the first time that your child has played lacrosse for Minnetonka, you will need to purchase a uniform.  If your child has played for Minnetonka already and has a uniform/pinnie there is no need to buy a new uniform unless you need larger sizes. If your child only needs a new Jersey or Pantskirt or Pinnie then the a la carte prices are:

 

  • $85 for full uniform
  • $45 for the jersey only
  • $40 for the pantskirt only
  • $30 for the pinnie only
     

MANDATORY US LACROSSE MEMBERSHIP

There is also an additional cost of $30 for the mandatory US Lacrosse membership (provides insurance coverage).
