Sioux Falls Lacrosse is doing a week long summer day camp through community education that will run Monday June 16 - Friday June 20. Every player will receive a stick, ball, and t-shirt as a participant in the camp.
The camp will feature daily practices, athletic performance training, cardio training, and games. The camp will culminate with a tournament on Friday! This camp is designed to introduce the sport to more kids in a fun and non-intimidating environment.
Registrations are rolling in and planning continues for our first official season of lacrosse in Sioux Falls. We have received a few repeated inquiries so we thought we'd provide answers to these common questions here.
Q: What will the schedule look like for lacrosse?
A: Lacrosse will be another youth sporting option for kids and adults alike beginning in April as soon as fields are ready and ending around June 30. For youth players, our plan is to practice 3 times per week and have a game on weekends, probably Saturday mornings. We will also have 1 travel team at each level that will play in about 3 tournaments if possible. These teams will be picked by coaching staff and third party evaluators once the season gets underway. Being our first year, we want to focus on building the sport and the skills before we go challenge other organizations who have had lacrosse for much longer than we have. We are booked to go to a tournament in Rapid City the weekend of June 7-8. We are also hoping to host a tournament if time and resources permit.
We are also planning an adult program to introduce the sport and the skills in a non-checking format. Rules and game format will be adapted to suit the players who register. These are planned for Sunday evenings.
Q: The email I received indicated that the early bird discount was $75 but when I go to register, it is only $50. Why?
A: After sending the email out to our limited audience, we decided to drop the base rate from $200 to $175 to make lacrosse accessible to more people. The early bird rate is still $125 but by dropping the base rate, it reduced the discount amount.
