8U boys teams will begin practice in mid-May and participate in the YLM League. They will practice two nights a week, and play 6 regular-season games starting mid-June against teams from surrounding communities. They will also participate in the Prior Lake Tournament on June 29-July 1.
Prior Lake 8U teams are coached by parent volunteers and paid coaches when possible. Coaching education and training is provided by P.L.A.Y. and the Boys Development Director, Casey Mithun.
8U is heavily focused on individual skill introduction and development, with games played with 5 players per side, no goalie, on a short field. The net will be tipped over providing a triangle target for players to shoot at for practices and games. 8U players have a unique set of rules, including 3 pass "attempts" must be made by the team before attempting a shot on goal.
A "Lacrosse 101" tab has been created to provide additional insight into this great game for those new to it.
Watch for registration for 2018 summer lacrosse opening in January!
Any and all questions or concerns should be directed to Rob Bloomer, Director of Boys Lacrosse.
