The Minnetonka Lacrosse Association (MLA) in-house program for 8U players bridges the gap between the 6U introduction to lacrosse skills and field lacrosse league play, which begins at the 10U age segment. Players participate in clinic-style drills, small-sided in-house competition, and, where appropriate, scrimmages, jamborees, and potentially even tournaments with other associations' 8U teams.
Registration Opens: December 2022
Registration Closes: Rolling registration
Practices have been scheduled for :
Registration includes an MLA jersey and all turf and field fees, as well as all coaching costs and, if applicable, tournament fees.
All participants must have a current USA Lacrosse (USAL) Youth Membership ($30).
We recommend that look up your child's USAL membership information prior to beginning the registration process. See links below for USAL membership information and membership lookup tool.
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 and USA Lacrosse coach membership.
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.
