    2017 WULAX Girls Summer Program - Important Changes

    There are some significant changes coming in 2017 for our girls program.  We felt it would be helpful to cover some of the changes, prior to registration.  Additionally, the 2017 Black & Blue Tournament is scheduled for July 14 – 16, so please make sure to mark your calendars.  As in previous years, you will be required to fulfill your volunteer hours at this tournament.

     

    WULAX is planning to open summer registration around January 1st.  Similar to last season, we will hold early season clinics as part of your summer fee in the Bielenberg Fieldhouse starting in March.  Depending on registration numbers, evaluations and team creation will be held late March / early April with practices starting later in May.  More information regarding the season will follow once MSLax (Minnesota Schoolgirls Lacrosse Association www.msslax.com) which sets the summer game schedules.

     

    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.) MSLax will follow the recommendation of using even-year grouping (i.e. 10U, 12U, 14U, etc.) that US Lacrosse recommends.

     

    The WULAX Girls Age 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)

    ** 8th Graders born between June 1, 2002 and September 1, 2002 will be allowed to play U14.

     

    Parents will also be required to do a one-time download of a player’s birth certificate when renewing or signing up for a US Lacrosse membership.  This will also ensure that players are at the correct level.  MSLax and WULAX allows for waivers from girls with extenuating circumstances.  

     

    Team Formation

    The goal of “WULAX” will be to place every registered player on a team.  In the event the numbers are such that your daughter is not placed on a team due to rosters at capacity, a full refund will be provided.  The registration process allows for a percentage of "non-resident" players, meaning non-resident players of the City of Woodbury (players who do not attend District #833 schools).  Due to this process, first consideration will be given to Woodbury “residents” when teams are formed.

    Additional policies related to team formation can be found on our website (www.woodburyunitedlax.com).

     

    US Lacrosse Age Verification

    Similar to previous seasons, each player must be a registered member of US Lacrosse.  US Lacrosse membership information can be found on their website (uslacrosse.org). 

     

    US Lacrosse has implemented changes to their age verification process for 2017.

     

    Per US Lacrosse, “The US Lacrosse Age verification system supports the organization’s player segmentation policy, passed by its Board of Directors in January 2016.  Player segmentation helps to ensure player safety, competitive fairness and a consistent experience for youth lacrosse.”

     

    Steps to Verify the Age of Your Child

    1. Scan or take a photo of your son or daughter’s birth certificate or state issues ID.
    2. Click the button below and log into your USLacrosse.org account, not your child’s.
    3. Upload your scan or photo to USLacrosse’s online system.
    4. USLacrosse will review your documentation, record the birthdate in their system and then permanently delete your uploaded document.
    5. You’ll receive a confirmation e-mail, and you’re done.  This is a one-time process that is good for the lifetime of your child’s membership.

     

    We are very excited for the upcoming season and look forward to having your daughter be a part of our program.  Please contact us by sending questions or inquiries through our website: (www.woodburyunitedlax.com/contact)

     

    Sincerely,

    2017 WULAX Boys Summer Program - Important Information

    There are some significant changes coming in 2017 for our boys program. We felt it would be helpful to cover some of the changes, along with touching on guidelines used for creating teams, prior to registration. 


    We are planning to open summer registration around January 1st. Similar to last season, we will hold early season clinics as part of your summer fee in the Bielenberg Fieldhouse starting in March. Evaluations will be held late March / early April with team practices starting later in April. More information regarding the season will follow once YLM (Youth Lacrosse of Minnesota www.youthlaxmn.com) sets all the dates.

    Age Segmentation
    YLM has made the decision to adopt the recommended age segmentation guidelines set forth by US Lacrosse. This means Woodbury United Lacrosse (“WULAX”) will offer teams for the following age groups: U8, U10, U12 and U14. Below is a table showing the birthdate range for each level.

         Date of Birth              Age Group

      9/1/2008 – 8/31/2010           U8

      9/1/2006 – 8/31/2008           U10

      9/1/2004 – 8/31/2006           U12

      9/1/2002 – 8/31/2004           U14

    8th graders born between June 1, 2002 and September 1, 2002 will be allowed to play U14.


    U8 will play 5v5 with no goalies, and U10 will follow rules similar to the U9 program in previous season which is 7v7 with a goalie. Again, we will provide the updated rules for each age group once published by YLM.
    As a result of the new age groupings, the “WULAX” Board is currently looking at a “new player” clinic / program to replace the U7 program we’ve had in the past. This will allow older kids to get an introduction to lacrosse that aren’t interested in participating on a team.

    Team Formation
    The intent of “WULAX” will be to offer an “A” team at the U12 and U14 age groups. If there’s more than one (1) team at the U8 and U10 age groups, even teams will be created. The same goes for multiple “B” teams at the U12 and U14 age groups. “WULAX” will hold player evaluations in March/April. They will be run by 3rd party evaluators to ensure fair, and unbiased assessments of the players’ occurs.


    The goal of “WULAX” will be to place every registered player on a team. In the event the numbers are such that your son is not placed on a team as determined by the player evaluation, a full refund will be provided. The registration process allows for a percentage of "non-resident" players, meaning non-resident players of the city of Woodbury, or players who don’t
    attend District #833 schools. Due to this process, first consideration will be given to Woodbury “residents” when teams are formed.

    Additional policies related to team formation can be found on our website (www.woodburyunitedlax.com).
