12U Level Coordinator
2018 Summer Lax Registration will open in January.
Prior Lake 12U players begin Dome practices on Saturday mornings in April. Player Evaluations will be at the end of April, with teams announced and outdoor practices beginning for all 12U teams in early May.
B teams will practice 3 nights a week for 90 minutes at HOMS. The 12U A team will practice 4 nights a week for 90 minutes.
Teams participate in the YLM League and will play 10 regular-season games starting mid-June against teams from surrounding communities. 12U B teams will participate in 2 weekend local tournaments (including the Prior Lake Invitational June 30-July 1). The 12U A team will participate in three regional weekend tournaments, including the Prior Lake Invitational on June 30-July 1.) 12U teams have State Playoffs and Tournament at the end of July.
Prior Lake 12U teams are head coached by paid coaches, with assistant coach parent volunteers. Coaching education and training is provided by P.L.A.Y. and the Boys Development Director, Casey Mithun.
While 12U is heavily focused on individual skill development, it introduces High School-like rules and field size. Games are played with 10 players per side, including a goalie, on a full field.
A "Lacrosse 101" tab has been created to provide additional insight into this great game for those new to it.
