Spring Boys League - April 1 to June 2

REGISTRATION CLOSING SOON!

We have something NEW and exciting for the start of the Tiger LAX season this Spring! We are doing a true Spring Season League through Great Northern Lacrosse League (GNLL). What this means is we will hold practices and play games during spring, rather than practicing 2 nights a week at the rink. This is separate from Summer League.

The Spring league will allow players to build endurance and improve on skills before the summer season. Players get more game touches and will improve lacrosse I.Q. through more game opportunities. 

Here is what this Spring Season will look like:

Level Cost
8U $50
10U $125
12U $150
14U $150

General Information: 

  • League hosted by  GNLL - Boys
  • 6 to 10 Games
  • 1 or 2 practices a week outside when field conditions allow.  
  • Teams primarily play double-headers on Saturdays or Sundays at the same site.  
  • Games start the weekend of April 13 & 14 and run through June 1 & 2 with no games scheduled Memorial Day Weekend. 
  • No game will be scheduled the weekend of June 1 & 2. Farmington will be hosting and participating in the Viking Goat Tournament.

Benefits:

  •  Allows players to build endurance. 
  •  Improve on skills before the summer season.
  •  Players get more game touches. 
  •  Improve lacrosse I.Q. through more game opportunities. 

Please note: We understand that there is some overlap between the spring and summer seasons. Please be understanding as we work out the kinks as this is the first time we are offering a spring season. Our objective and motivation is to give players more opportunities to apply and improve their skills in games.
