YOUTH PROGRAM

Grades K-8

Mill Valley currently fields youth teams for kids grades K-8.  We compete in the LAKC Youth Lacrosse League which is comprised of teams from across the KC metro. 

We field the following teams

U8   (Kindergarten, 1st & 2nd grade)
U10 (3rd & 4th grade)
U12 (5th & 6th grade)
U14 (7th & 8th grade)

Registration numbers will dictate the number of teams formed.  

Our plan this year is to field a U8 team for the first time ever.  This team would be first year players, grades K-2.  We have had interest the past few years, but this year we are committing to have a team.

HOW MANY PLAYERS ARE ON A TEAM?

U8 (K, 1st & 2nd)
Plays 5v5 on small field (approx. 1/2 football field).

U10 (3rd & 4th grade)
Plays 6v6 on a small field (approx. 1/2 football field). 

To field a 6v6 team, we ideally want 10 players.  5 players playing the field, with a goalie, with at least 4 subs.

U12 (5th & 6th grade)
Will play 10v10 on a full field (approx. full football field). 9 players on field with 1 goalie. 15-18 players is ideal for a full field team.  Players are subbed in and out quickly, so all players get lots of playing time. 

U14 (7th & 8th grade)
Will also play 10v10 on full field. 15-18 players on a team is ideal.
