Call for Coaches and Managers

Call for Coaches: We're always looking for new coaches! If you or someone you know would enjoy coaching or helping a coach during practices, please contact us at EMAILS@MTKALAX.ORG.  Note that if you'd like to be a coach, MLA will pay for your USA Lacrosse Level 1 certification

Call for Volunteers: In addition to coaches, we always need volunteers in a number of capacities to keep Minnetonka youth lacrosse going. If you're interested, check out our Volunteer Opportunities webpage.

A word about volunteers...

  • We need volunteers to make our programs run. PERIOD. 
    Every registration has an option to select a volunteer role. If you're interested in volunteering in any capacity but don't know how, please send us an email: EMAILS@MTKALAX.ORG.
  • It's particularly beneficial for the program if we can get multiple parent-coaches, bench/sideline manager, and team managers for a given season. But we additionally need multiple assistant webmasters to help with SportsEngine admin tasks, equipment coordinators to help with getting goals to fields and getting nets strung up and gear delivered to coaches, apparel and uniform coordinators, and many others to make MLA successful for our kids! 
  • You do not need to know lacrosse inside and out to coach for us. We typically have one or two "expert" coaches with each team, but it's always helpful to have additional bodies to run practices, fill in when needed, and monitor sideline activity and playing minutes. Particularly at the 6U, 8U, and 10U levels, we'll teach you everything you need to know to help out  as a coach or volunteer! 

USA Lacrosse Membership

All participants must have a current USA Lacrosse (USAL) 6U Membership ($15).
