Is designed for those players who want to grow their skill set in a more challenging environment by training alongside players from across the Twin Cities Metro area. Coaches will challenge players through age-appropriate drills and skill development. We know our players desire to play with friends on their local MSLax association team and have created our practice schedule to minimize potential conflicts. Players are introduced to leadership and how to be leaders on their association teams by lifting up and bringing out the best in those around them and challenging teammates to be their best. Tournaments for youth are kept to local and regional locations to reduce costs to our families and the potential for conflicts with association play.

The Minnesota Lakers Lacrosse Team will receive the same high-level coaching as our Minnesota Lakers Select teams.
Teams will practice together throughout the season and attend required tournaments together (Blue Ox in June in the Twin Cities area and The Showdown in July in Naperville, Ill.). 
Additionally, players will have the option to attend additional tournaments. These additional optional tournaments have a separate fee. For those who elect to do optional tournaments, those mixed teams will have a mandatory team practice the Monday prior to their tournament.
Practice for the Youth Program (14U and 12U) will start the Tuesday following the 2022 MSLAX Spring Tournament. Practices will be Tuesday and Wednesday evenings with location TBD.
