8U season runs from April - June with a Jamboree tournament in May and June.
The MSSLAX 8U is a training league which focuses on basic fundamentals fun.
Plan on 2 practices a week, weekday evenings. They begin in April and run through June.
At the 8U level everyone is on the same team and there is no limit.
There is also an additional cost of $30 for the mandatory US Lacrosse membership (provides insurance coverage).
Before you register, if you have a pinnie, please make sure your daughter tries on her old one to see if it still fits. A few girls last year found out after registration that they needed a bigger one.
If this is the first time that your child has played lacrosse for Minnetonka, you will need to purchase a new pinnie. If your child has played for Minnetonka already and has a pinnie that fits, there is no need to buy a new pinnie unless you need a larger size.
The following equipment is required and is NOT provided:
Cleats are optional.
It is important to make sure the stick is a GIRLS stick. It has a more shallow pocket and a longer shaft. These items can be purchased at most local sporting goods stores.
Mtkalax serves the Mtka 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 Mtka School District. We welcome players from outside the Minnetonka School District if space allows at the close of registration. Those players should email firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to a "first come, first served" wait list.
