Player segmentation subject to US Lacrosse player segmentation guidelines
Requests for age waivers to "play up" or "play down" should be submitted to the Boys' Youth Director. These requests will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis, with the final determination subject to the sole discretion of the Boys' Youth Director.
Full lacrosse gear is required, per league rules and US Lacrosse insurance requirements
Full lacrosse gear means: lacrosse helmet, legal lacrosse stick, lacrosse gloves, shoulder pads, arm pads, mouth guard, protective cup, and non-metal cleats appropriate for youth play on grass or turf. Rib pads are optional but recommended. Requirements for goalie gear are different; consult USL's equipment webpage.
HELMET POLICY: MLA does not require a specific color for a boys' helmets or gloves, but we encourage players to purchase and wear Tonka Blue (often "royal blue") whenever possible, with white as a first alternative option and black as a second alternative option. All equipment, including helmets, must be free of decals or markings bearing other lacrosse clubs' or associations' logos or names. This policy went into effect for the 2014 summer lacrosse season and covers equipment worn at tryouts and player evaluations.
UNIFORMS: Team-issued uniforms (jersey and shorts) are included with your registration fee and must be worn at all games, scrimmages and tournaments.
For insurance, reasons, participants must have a US Lacrosse Youth Membership ($30) in order to register with MLA.
During registration for the summer season, you will be asked for the player's USL membership number and membership expiration date. We recommend that you confirm USL membership status prior to beginning the registration process.
Up until a program registration closes, the Minnetonka Lacrosse Association (MLA) will give consideration to written requests for withdrawals and refunds. In all cases MLA will retain a 15% processing fee for costs incurred from our registration service and administrative costs.
After a program registration has closed, no refunds or cancellations will be given except in the case of injury or similar extenuating circumstance that prevents practice and game participation. In such cases, the Minnetonka Lacrosse Association Board of Directors must approve the refund, and may require documentation to substantiate the refund request.
No refunds will be given in the case where program sessions must be canceled due to weather, facilities cancellations, or other situations beyond MLA’s control.
