End of Year Social & Board Elections

~~The Shakopee Lacrosse Association will be holding our annual membership meeting and social at 7pm on Thursday August 7th at Turtles in the banquet room.  (Social hour starts at 6pm with pizza, appetizers, and cash bar)

The intent of this meeting is to hold elections for board positions, provide the membership with a status on the association and where we are headed, and most importantly to solicit feedback on how we can improve the Lacrosse experience for all of our players.

The election is to fill the 2 open board positions each with a 2 year term.  We are currently looking for members who are interested in running for the board to send a brief email to Jennifer Clarke at saberslax1@gmail.com

We are also looking for volunteers to serve as grade level representatives and for our tournament and fundraising committees.  Please consider helping us in growing this great sport in Shakopee.
Please plan to attend...we are a fast growing organization and need your input and assistance.
“The world is run by those that show up!”
Thank you for your support

Lacrosse Information:

What is Lacrosse?   

The sport of lacrosse is a combination of basketball, soccer and hockey. Anyone can play lacrosse - big or small.  The game requires and rewards coordination and agility. Quickness and speed are two highly prized qualities in lacrosse not size.  It's an exhilarating sport that is fast-paced and full of action. Long sprints up and down the field with abrupt starts and stops, precision passes and dodges are routine in men's lacrosse. Lacrosse is played with a stick, the crosse, which is used to scoop, throw, catch and shoot the ball.

Why Play Lacrosse:

  • Fastest game on 2 feet         
  • Size does NOT matter           
  • Helps you be a more dynamic athlete in other sports                 
  • Excellent TEAM game              
  • Combines many different sports skills           
  • Meet new friends           
  • It is FUN and challenging!!
  • Fastest growing team sport in the nation

And for the parents....it's a lot of fun to watch!!!


Fun Facts: Did you know Lacrosse is the fastest growing team sport in the United States?  In 2001, the total number of lacrosse players (those who play on organized teams) was 253,931.  In 2011, that number was 684,730 - a 170% increase in a decade.  Youth participation in the sport has grown over 125% since 2001 and no sport has grown faster at the high school level.  The 2009 US Lax Participating Survey states, "Minnesota is one of the quickly-developing lacrosse markets and features nearly 5,000 youth players. That’s an increase of 18.1% over 2008 numbers."
