Spring 2023 Registration is Open!

Registration for Spring 2023 is now OPEN! Come join us for another exciting season of lacrosse!

We support competitive play for BOYS and GIRLS from kindergartern through high school. No experience is necessary to join our program; we want everyone who is interested in learning a new sport to feel welcome and encouraged to come try something new! We have equipment you can rent for the season.

If you want to give our program a try, feel welcome to come a preaseason workout or the first week of field practice for FREE to try it out. If you love it, then register. If not, then we appreciate your willingness to give it a go!

To our returning players, we are looking to build upon a great summer and fall.

Registration follows the following steps:

(1) Go to USA Lacrosse and activate or renew your membership (your active membership must run through June 5, 2023). Visit https://membership.usalacrosse.com/login and either log back in to access your account or create a new one. Once you are finished registering, take note of your Membership Number and Expiration Date – you will need that for the next step. Why do you need to join USA Lacrosse? They are our insurance carrier- for the club, our coaches and your player. Plus they provide a ton of educational materials and other information that benefits us and your player.

(2) Go to Team Snap and begin the Club Registration process (https://go.teamsnap.com/forms/354870). Returning families can use the log-ins created for past seasons to access your accounts. New familires create new profiles. 

(3) Download the Team Snap app and use the log-in information you used for Step 2 to access team information, download schedules, and receive real-time communication specific to your player’s team. Players will be assigned to teams based largely on their age of 9/1/2022.

GAMES

Game schedules are under development. Expect games on Saturdays for 10U, 12U and 14U consistently on Saturdays but not every weekend. High school level games may be on Saturdays or Sundays. We recognize that not everyone can make every game – just let us know well enough in advance so we can ensure we have sufficient players to meet our obligations to our opponents and your teammates.

Games will be played on our home field in Solon as well as in Dubuque, the Quad Cities, the Meskwaki reservation and the Des Moines area. We may have some travel into Illinois or Wisconsin (particularly for high school level play) and Omaha (for all levels). That all remains a work in progress as of 1/21/23.
