The MSSLAX 8U is a training league which focuses on basic fundamentals fun.

OUTDOOR SCHEDULE

 

Plan on 2 practices a week, weekday evenings. They begin in April and run through June.  

TEAMS

 

At the 8U level everyone is on the same team and there is no limit. 

COSTS

 

Registration fees:

  • 8U program $150  plus $25 for pinnie (if needed)

MANDATORY US LACROSSE MEMBERSHIP

 

There is also an additional cost of $30 for the mandatory US Lacrosse membership (provides insurance coverage).  

UNIFORM

 

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 price of a new pinnie is $25 

EQUIPMENT

 

The following equipment is required and is NOT provided:

  • Girls Lacrosse Stick 
  • Goggles
  • Mouth Guard

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. 

ELIGIBILITY

 

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 girlsyouthdir@mtkalax.org to be added to a "first come, first served" wait list.
