COVID - 19 Update

Woodbury United Lacrosse continues to monitor the updates pertaining to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.  Over the last week, we have seen a dramatic implementation in preventative measures in Minnesota.  We want to communicate how these impact the 2020 Summer Lacrosse Season as frequently as possible.

So far we have had a few events in March postponed. The following events were postponed due to MN Department of Health, CDC, Woodbury Schools, and City of Woodbury recommendations/requirements:

  • Indoor Clinics, Try Lacrosse and Tryouts through April 1
  • Mouthguard Fitting
  • Positive Coaching Alliance seminar for families new to WULAX

We are also now postponing the uniform fitting that was scheduled to be held over the next two weeks at ES Lacrosse.

At this time, YLM and MSLAX are still planning on proceeding with the summer lacrosse season. If you haven’t done so already, we encourage you to register your players for the upcoming season – registration will be open through April 15.  If the season should be cancelled by our governing boards, we will offer a full refund of your registration fee (except for the processing fee charged by Sports Engine).  If we are able to play just a partial summer season, a partial refund will be provided (amount would be determined based on duration of that partial season).

Things are changing on a daily basis and we will continue to communicate updates as we learn of them.  If you have any specific questions related to the boys program, please contact Pat Donaghy at patdlax@yahoo.com.  If you have any specific questions related to the girls program, please contact Mackenzie Harding at mackenzie.harding@gmail.com.

 

Sincerely,

The WULAX Board of Directors
