1st year - Beginner Lacrosse Program - (8U only)
This registration is beginning players born 9/1/2011 through 8/31/2014 (typically 1st and 2nd grade) in the spring of 2020. Kindergarten students will be considered but a parent of that player must help to coach that player's team.
We have 30 sets of loaner equipment (helmet, shoulder pads, elbow pads, gloves, and stick) available through a First Stick Grant from US Lacrosse for the 8U team. The first 30 players registered have priority to check this equipment out, after number 30 will be on standby for whatever is left after the first 30 players.
This program will have one practice a week and one game day scrimmage. Overall we will practice and play scrimmages in-house, but we may potentially host some teams during our Dakota Premier Lacrosse League home jamboree weekend.
You will be required to register your player with US Lacrosse and provide that registration number as part of the Grand Cities Lacrosse registration process. US Lacrosse registration fees are in addition to Grand Cities Lacrosse registration fees. Fees for US Lacrosse registration are:
