Woodbury United Lacrosse Calendar & Information
Rough Timeline & Info for Woodbury United Lacrosse
Woodbury United Lacrosse is a 501(c)3 non-profit community organization that supports lacrosse in the City of Woodbury. All players who wish to play lacrosse are welcome at all ages. There are no cuts.
All board members and parent coaches are volunteers. As a growing sport, we rely on dedicated parents to support the program in a variety of roles.
The main lacrosse leagues are YLM and MsLax, which runs from late March – July. Here is the timeline:
Late March & Early April = Indoor clinics and tryouts/evaluations (2020 = March 21, 22, 25, 28, 29… April 1, 4. 5)
A series of 6-8 clinics and tryouts/evals held in Health East Fieldhouse
Tryouts for “A” teams at U12 and U14
U8 and U10, if multiple teams, are divided evenly
April & May = Preseason practices
Outdoor practices & focus on fundamentals
Mostly led by parents. Some coaches are available but parents are needed to support
Typically held Sunday afternoons, and 1-2 weekdays
Woodbury typically approves outdoor fields for use between April 15-25.
June & July YLM and MsLax Summer seasons
MsLax is the girls league
For U10-U14 = 8 regular season games. Typically 2 practices per week. Also teams participate in three weekend tournaments
For U8 = 2-3 weekend jamborees, one of which Woodbury can host. Usually the first and third Saturday of June. Woodbury parents organized a 3rd one in last weekend of June that went well last year.
YLM is the boys league
U12-U14 = 8 regular season games. 3 weekend tournaments. U12 and U14 has a state tournament, one on last weekend in July, one on first weekend in August. YLM will determine the order sometime in May.
U10 = 8 regular season games. 2 practices a week. 2 weekend tournaments. Plus an end of season jamboree on third weekend in July. (2020 will be July 19-19)
U8 = 6 regular season games. 1-2 practices as week. Wulax supports 1 tournament. Parents will organize 1 or 2 more.
U6 = 8-10 clinics on Wednesday evenings during the Summer
In season registration costs run roughly $150 for U8 to $375 for U14. This accounts for non-parent coaches, fields, referees, tournaments, background checks, insurance, preseason clinics, preseason scrimmages, medical field coverage and uniforms.
Woodbury hosts the Black & Blue summer lacrosse tournament. It is the largest lacrosse tournament in the Midwest. Last year there was over 140 teams. It is typically held the 2nd weekend in July. In 2020 it is July 10-12. We rely heavily on parents to fulfill Dibs during this tournament
