Prior Lake 12U teams begin indoor practice in March through the end of April. Tryouts are the last two Sundays in April and players need to be at both tryouts. 12U teams will be announced in early May.
Outdoor practices will start at the beginning of May, weather permitting, and will practice Mondays and Wednesdays from 5:30-7 p.m. at Twin Oaks Middle School.
Teams participate through MSLAX (msslax.com) and starting in mid-June, 12U teams will play approximately 8 league games against teams from surrounding communities. In addition to weekday games, 12U teams will play in 2 weekend tournaments, including the Prior Lake Invitational on June 29-July 1. 12U teams will also play in the State Tournament at the beginning of August.
Prior Lake Girls 12U teams are coached by paid head coaches along with parent volunteers. Coaching education and training is provided by P.L.A.Y. and the Girls Development Director, Heather Pierson.
The goal of 12U is skill development and team play in an effort to develop a player's individual skill, but most importantly developing a "team-first" mentality.
For those new to the game, please visit the “Registration FAQ’s” on the Lacrosse home page which provides a lot of information about the game and P.L.A.Y. Lacrosse.
Any and all questions or concerns should be directed to the 12U coordinator or Director of Girls Lacrosse.
