Our beginner Kindergarten program does not require the usual full lacrosse gear. Softer balls will be used. Players will be given beginner sticks to use and keep. Ensure your player arrives with their stick at each session.
FAMILY VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
Edina Lacrosse Association is a non-profit volunteer run organization. Without family volunteers, we cannot function. We will reach out related to specific needs. However, for now, we’d love parents to help in 2 roles:
Parent volunteer assistant coaches. If interested, please note on your registration. Training will be provided.
Program team manager. Will send out weekly reminder communications, any weather-related communications, and will plan end of season fun.
EDINA LACROSSE ASSOCIATION REFUND POLICY
Up until a program registration closes, the Edina Lacrosse Association (ELA) will give consideration to written requests for withdrawal and refund. In all cases, ELA will retain a processing fee for incurred costs from the web provider registration service and administrative costs. After a program registration has closed, no refunds or cancellations will be given except in the case of injury or similar extenuating circumstances which prevents practice and game participation, and then only by approval of the Edina Lacrosse Association Board of Directors.
No refunds will be given in the event of program session(s) cancellation(s) due to weather, facilities cancellations or other situations beyond the control of ELA.
