SEASON HIGH LEVEL TIMING –KINDERGARTEN HOUSE PROGRAMS

The Kindergarten House programs will run for 8 weeks, starting the week of June 4, 2019.  They will play 2 weeknights per week at Wooddale Park, generally Mondays and Tuesdays, for hour-long sessions.  Nothing will be planned for the week of July 4th.

IMPORTANT!

  • Player Commitment Statement:   Lacrosse is a team sport.  Player and team development happen successfully when players show up and participate - plus, it's a lot more fun!  We are asking all of our travel team players to sign a Player Commitment Statement as part of registration, committing to attend practices and games and providing enough notice when not able to attend.
  • Bullying Policy:   All registrants will sign off on our Bullying Policy with their registration.  Player and team development and fun are dependent upon our players treating each other and their coaches with respect.

1.  SEASON STARTS THE WEEK OF JUNE 4TH
Sessions will be 2 weeknights per week – 1 hour per session – at Wooddale Park.  Generally, these sessions have been on Monday and Tuesday evenings to try and avoid conflicts with Edina Soccer Association for these age levels.
