The Burnsville Lacrosse Club is a part of the BAC (Burnsville Athletic Club). We offer youth in grades 3rd to 8th the opportunity to participate in a lacrosse league. This league will teach your child the sport of lacrosse through skill development at practices. They will get hands on knowledge during games by not only the coaches, but the umpires as well! Team building and sportsmanship are an essential part of the game of lacrosse! And most importantly, they will have FUN!!
At present we are unable to offer a separate girls lacrosse program. The youth lacrosse program is eager to offer girls and boys in grades 2nd to 8th the opportunity to participate in our youth lacrosse league. The combined teams will follow the league rules, regulations, and uniforms that has been part of the youth program from previous seasons.
This league is open to all residents and all youth enrolled in the Burnsville School District # 191. Neighboring communities with no lacrosse at the same level is welcome to waiver in.
We plan to have at least one team at 8U, 10U, 12U, and 14U. These teams generally correspond to the age of the child playing. You can find a chart that defines the ages according to US Lacrosse here.
We expect practices to begin in mid to late April taking place at multiple locations around the Burnsville area. Each team will be assigned a practice/game field. Practices and/or games will be Monday thru Thursday. Time will be determined when teams are formed.
The YLM (Youth Lacrosse of Minnesota) includes teams in the metropolitan area. Games are played throughout the metro area and begin in June. This league is for those who have never played or are experienced players. The league has changed from being grade based to age based for the players.
