Attention Elk River Youth Lacrosse Association Members:
We all know how tough it can be playing the waiting game... The good news is currently we are still hoping to have a Boys youth lacrosse Summer Season.
Elk River Youth Lacrosse association follows the National US Lacrosse guidelines and works closely with the MN League organizations for guidance. Please visit their websites for at home training resources and direct updates from each league:
US Lacrosse (https://www.uslacrosse.org/lax-at-home) - US Lacrosse is here to help you get ready to get back on the field with your team. #LaxAtHome is intended to provide you with a centralized resource to use to stay on top of your game while at home. We have expanded our own digital offerings and compiled additional educational resources from our partners and friends in the lacrosse community.
MSLax (https://www.mslax.net/) - The official Minnesota Schoolgirls Lacrosse Association has officially canceled the full girls Summer season.
YLM (https://www.youthlaxmn.com/) - Youth Lacrosse of Minnesota has stated that they are also planning to have a full Summer boys lacrosse season if the government allows.
Viking Goat Tourney (https://www.uslaxevents.com/vikinggoat) – Has changed their dates from the end of May to July. Please check their website for the updated info.
As you can imagine summer youth sports registrations are down across all sports this year, in fact in some cases we are down 40% at certain age levels. In order to fill up and roster teams, we have officially re-opened summer registration starting today, Thursday April 30th through Sunday May 10th.
There is no risk to registration, using our no money down registration option. If you had registered prior to the 'no money down offer', do not worry, your deposit is safe. If the season is canceled, we will refund all Elk River registration costs at that time.
What about uniforms? Considering this year's events, we are going to change plans regarding uniforms. Anyone who prepaid for a uniform will be refunded. Instead of a uniform that requires a 5-6 week lead time, we are going to go with an in-house option from Geared Up Apparel's store here in Elk River. We want to be sure to support our local business in this tough climate and will plan to do affordable, simple jersey tops that have screen printed numbers this year. Uniform ordering will open once we have the go-ahead to move forward with the season.
Rest assured, when things return to normal, we will go back to the uniforms that you have grown to expect from the association.
Some people have asked - What can we do to help? Our response - Spread the word that we are hopeful for the season and encourage families who have not done so, to go ahead and register for the season.
Player and family safety are our association's number one concern. Know that if we can pull off this season in a safe way, we will do our best to make the Summer Lacrosse season happen!
