I hope you are all staying healthy and safe over this time that we have off. I know that there are many unanswered questions regarding the 2020 lacrosse season, hopefully this message clears many of them up.
There is a lot of speculation and rumors floating around that the 2020 Lacrosse season is cancelled, delayed or abbreviated. As far as Minnetonka High School and I know, the 2020 Lacrosse Season is starting March 30th. This of course is an ever changing and fluid situation so I will be updating you if this were to change over the next week.
Ultimately, the MSHSL is going to have the final say on whether or not spring sports are cancelled. Governor Walz is having press conferences this week daily at 2pm which will provide us with any updates on if he is continuing to close schools into April. It is important that we stay patient and do our best to stay positive during this time allowing the powers that be the time they need to make an informed decision. I am very appreciative of the MSHSL waiting to gather as much information as possible before making a decision on cancellation.
With that said, it is very important that you register your son for the 2020 Lacrosse season as normal. I would hate to run into a situation where we have tryouts March 30th and we have some players that are unable to participate because they are not registered. If you register and the 2020 Lacrosse season is cancelled, your registration will be refunded from MHS. The link to register can be found below.
Lastly, with no practice options or field time this week it is very important that you are doing your best to maintain and improve your stick skills. Below is a quick 15 min wall ball routine to help with this.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask me!
Stay safe, stay healthy.
