2020 Fall Boys Lacrosse

2020 Boys Youth Lacrosse In-house

With the start of school around the corner, the Minnetonka Lacrosse Association's Board of Directors has approved an in-house plan for boys' fall lacrosse. This plan will provide for novice training (clinic style for new players of all ages, including our new co-ed 6U segment), as well as separate, competition-oriented sessions for 10U, 12U, and 14U players. Note that players who register for the novice sessions may additionally register for a 10U, 12U, or 14U competition session.

Because of COVID-19 restrictions, we have hard caps on the total number of players who can register for any given session, so sign up ASAP!  Once an age segment has been filled, registration for that segment will close. 

WHAT: Tonka Boys' Youth Lacrosse Fall Session

COST: $50

WHERE: Badger Park, 5755 Country Club Road, Shorewood, MN

WHEN: Sundays in September through mid-October -- 9/13, 9/20, 9/27, 10/4, 10/11

  • Beginners, 6U (co-ed), and 8U: 3pm-4pm  4pm-5pm (with 10U) (updated 17 SEP 2020)
  • 10U: 4pm-5pm
  • 12U: 5:30pm-7pm
  • 14U: 7pm-8:30pm
  • NOTE: We're working on additional opportunities for 10U, 12U and 14U players. These "bonus sessions" would be held from 7-8:30 on Wednesday evenings (9/16, 9/23, 9/30, 10/7, and 10/14.) The goal would be to get two bonus sessions each for 12U and 14U groups and one bonus session for the 10U group, but we're still working on the details here.

Refunds

Up until a program registration closes, the Minnetonka Lacrosse Association (MLA) will give consideration to written requests for withdrawals and refunds. In all cases MLA will retain a 15% processing fee for costs incurred from our registration service and administrative costs. 

After a program registration has closed, no refunds or cancellations will be given except in the case of injury or similar extenuating circumstance that prevents practice and game participation. In such cases, the Minnetonka Lacrosse Association Board of Directors must approve the refund, and may require documentation to substantiate the refund request.

No refunds will be given in the case where program sessions must be canceled due to weather, facilities cancellations, or other situations beyond MLA’s control.
