Registration for 2022 Dome Clinics & Spring Evals is now open!
All Girls Winter Dome clinics & evaluations will be held at the Minnetonka HS Dome.
The MLA Girls Lacrosse Program is holding a 4-week clinic for all players who will participate in our Spring program (shortened to a 2-week clinic for 8U & 10U players). For 12U & 14U players all 4 dates will be clinic-style and the final 2 dates will include evaluations. Attendance is strongly encouraged at all 4 dates.
Why are you holding evaluations?
1) We (the Girls Directors, Kari & Deborah) register Minnetonka teams for the correct competition levels within the league (MSLax). MSLax requires that we register our teams to play in A/B/C level competition. Holding evaluations will help us set each team up for a season of fair competition, success, and growth in Spring games.
2) To highly encourage players to participate in the pre-season! We want all players and teams ready to hit the ground running as soon as spring season "officially" starts in March. This means getting sticks back in hands, building chemistry with teammates, and remembering how much FUN lacrosse is!
What will evaluations cover?
Evaluation days will feel just like the regular clinics! Coaches will run drills, games, and more; this time, we're just keeping an eye on participation, tenacity, drive to learn and improve, teamwork, sportsmanship, skill, growth, etc. This will be updated in February when we've refined the process.
Cost: $0 - FREE for 8U & 10U players! We want girls new to lacrosse to join us so please share this registration with your networks.
