2024 Girls 8U Spring/Summer Lacrosse overview

REGISTRATION DEADLINE FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 16

 

 

OVERVIEW

The Girls 8U Program is a hybrid travel team program that encourages girls of all skill levels to develop their lacrosse specific skills, gain an understanding of the game, and learn to work as a team. We value teamwork and fun!

  • The Edina Girls 8U program is a spring/summer program which runs 12 weeks.
  • It is expected that girls will arrive at PRACTICES 10 minutes prior to the start of each practice and be ready to play (goggles on, sticks ready, mouth guards in) at the start of practice.
  • It is expected that the girls will arrive at games ready to warm up 30 minutes prior to game time
  • Some key differences between 8U and older age groups:
    • 8U will have 4 regular season games,1 Playday (mini-round robin tournament)
    • 8U games will  be refereed by coaches in 2024 
    • 8U does not keep official score during their games.  
    • 8U games are played 4v4 while at older ages games are either 7v7 or 12v12. 
    • Goals are put triangle side up, as there are no goalies at 8U.
  • Details for 8U rules and play format in can be found here:
