Welcome to Burnsville Lacrosse!

About

NEW in 2019 is our Co-Op with Apple Valley!

Our league teaches your child the sport of lacrosse through skill development at practices and games. At practices, we focus on skills and drills as well as small group scrimmaging. In games, players will get hands-on knowledge through on the bench coaching and from the umpires as well. Team building and good sportsmanship are an essential part of the game of lacrosse! Most importantly, we will have FUN!

Our goal is to develop better athletes through lacrosse. Our priority is safety, skills development, and the teaching of character development and life lessons through lacrosse.

Our program promotes the importance of good sportsmanship, teamwork, leadership, and integrity. We believe learning both success and failure through competition will benefit our players and grow the game of lacrosse!

Lacrosse is a fun and fast sport which is great for active kids!

Eligibility & Player Ages

This league is open to all residents and all youth in 2nd-8th grades (US Lacrosse Guidelines) enrolled in the Burnsville School District #191. Players from neighboring communities with no lacrosse league are welcome to waiver in.

NEW in 2019 is our Co-Op with Apple Valley! We are combining teams with the Valley Athletic Association (VAA) to form combined teams whose mascot is the Firehawks! These players still register through VAA, but all aspects of the program are shared. Fees are the same through each program.

At present we offer co-ed teams for both boys and girls. We play using boys rules and equipment. We do not have the numbers to offer a separate girls lacrosse program, but if we did, we would eagerly offer this opportunity.

New players are welcome to join our program at any age; we commonly have new players starting in every team level. Teams are currently offered at 8U, 10U, 12U and 14U. Beyond 8th grade, prep or JV teams may be available through High Schools.

Team levels are based on US Lacrosse Age Guidelines age chart for US Lacrosse . You can play "up" into an older age group with coach permission, but you can't play in a younger age group. Therefore, if there are not enough players for an 8U team, those players may be shifted up into the 10U team

We follow US Lacrosse rules and modifications approved by Youth Lacrosse Minnesota (YLM)
