Help Support Your Lacrosse Association-Sponsor Mtkalax Today!
Lacrosse in Minnesota has grown to a top five state in participation in the U.S.! Our association continues to grow in numbers each year. Our philosophy of Safety, Fun, Instruction and competitiveness are the key ingredients that attract participants each year.
We are fortunate to have access to fields including the Tonka Dome during the more challenging weather season. Equipment requirements, new uniforms and additional referees and league fees for the increased number of teams result in increasing costs. To offset these costs and to continue to rent the limited fields available for boy and girls spring/summer leagues the association is accepting various levels of sponsorship.
If you or your business is interested in supporting our expansion please go to the sponsorship link on the main menu at Mtkalax.org to learn more. Thanks for your support and enjoy the upcoming season as our teams take the field!
President, Minnetonka Lacrosse Association
