MSLax thanks all who applied for this grant.  Our Board had a tough decision as there were many qualified applicants, but we are very excited about the three coaches chosen.  Tara, Tamara, and Lexi are leaders within their communities, all with a passion to grow and better girls lacrosse in the state of Minnesota.  We look forward to having them as partners to our Board and resources for coaches and program administrators across the state.

US Lacrosse
New Age Segmentation
 
US Lacrosse has recommended the adoption of "Age-based segmentation" for associations instead of "Grade-based segmentation" starting in 2017.  In the past, MSLax has not been a proponent of changing to the "U" based system because it did not have a clear delineation between youth and high school.  There was always confusion about what to do with girls in ninth grade.  The new program is now a clear-cut division with 14U designated as youth and anything over 14U is high school.  Since we do not have enough girls for single-based levels (ie 10U, 11U, 12U, 13U, etc.) we are following the recommendation of using even-year grouping (i.e. 10U, 12U, 14U, etc.) that US Lacrosse recommended.  
 
Levels for 2017 are as follows:
10U – Girls born between 9/1/2006 – 8/31/2008 (formerly 3rd-4th grade)
12U – Girls born between 9/1/2004 – 8/31/2006 (formerly 5th-6th grade)
14U – Girls born between 9/1/2002 – 8/31/2004 (formerly 7th-8th grade)
18U – Girls born between 9/1/1998 – 8/31/2002 (formerly U19)
 
Parents will also be required to do a one-time download of a players birth certificate when renewing or signing up for a US Lacrosse membership.  This will also ensure that players are at the correct level.  As always, MSLax allows for waivers from girls with extenuating circumstances.
