Minnesota Schoolgirls Lacrosse Association

2019 MSLax 8U Sign-up

Welcome

Spring 2019-U8 League and Jamborees

8U Jamboree Dates Set:

  • Sunday, May 19 @  Blake Middle School 2:00-4:00pm
  • Sunday, June 2 @ Centennial - 2:00-4:00pm (exact time TBA)

Per input from MSLax constituent survey last fall, we will continue to run the 8U League in play day format and teams scheduling their own games with other 8U teams during the season.  Our hope is to add another play day to the season this year so please plan for 2 play days on Sundays.

Our overall goal at MSLAX is to grow the game, and have girls have a great experience with lacrosse so that they stick with it. We really stress the importance of keeping U8 FUN, so if you can relay that to anyone working with your littles that would be greatly appreciated.

Please note that after we get the team registrations we will create an email group so groups may coordinate scrimmages as association leaders understand their areas and how far their families are willing to travel.

Administration

  • The season will run May - June 2019 specifically  May 1st - June 30th.

May was selected for this age group because of outdoor fields usually open at this time.  Young players spend most of the time with the ball on the ground.  Chasing balls on indoor gym floors does not facilitate skill development.

  • Ending the season by the end of June creates a reasonable length season appropriate for the age group that does not unduly burden families.   Our goal is to grow the sport, not deter new players
  • Registration Fee is $90 per team + the  following stipulations:
    • No paid referees, coaches will self-Ref
    • No tournament
    • 2 Jamborees included in Registration - Dates are

  • US Lacrosse ID required for insurance

Jamborees will be hosted on Sundays as many communities need the support of high school student coaches and they are most available during this day as are fields.  

Teams may organize scrimmages with other teams at their own discretion.  We will send out contact information of each 8U team so you can schedule additional games after registration closes.

Rules of Game & Equipment

  • We will follow US Lacrosse U8 rules with following requirements:
  • Both Goggles and Mouthguards are Required (due to insurance)
  • If 3x3 goals are not available a standard goal may be flipped so that the triangle end may be used
  • The one pass rule may be adjusted at half-time by mutual agreement of coaches to manage the pace of play and fun.
  • at the beginning of the game as two-12 minute halves or four-6 minute quarters. Coaches may agree on periods
