May 7 Update on 2020 Lacrosse Season

Wayzata Lacrosse Players and Parents,

It is with great sadness that I write to you today to inform you of our decision to cancel our boy’s and girl’s lacrosse programs for the remainder of the spring and summer.   

There were several considerations that went into this decision and we did not take it lightly.  

  • Both the boy’s Great Northern Lacrosse league as well as the girl’s MSlax spring and summer leagues canceled, leaving us with limited options to play. 
  • We had then hoped to participate in a handful of tournaments later in the summer, but all of those recently canceled or moved to “tentative” status as of this morning. 
  • The city of Plymouth and Wayzata schools both indicated that fields would not be available to us until mid-late June, at the earliest.
  • US Lacrosse has not yet provided a “return to play” plan for us to resume play safely, and the guidelines that they have released privately would limit play to such an extent as to be unrecognizable as lacrosse. 
  • Many of you have already emailed us, indicating that you would not let your children play this spring or summer.
  • We wanted to act sooner, rather than later, to allow you to make other plans for the summer months. 

For those of you that registered using a credit card, we will be processing refunds of your registration fees over the weekend.  If your registration was completed more than 90 days ago, we will mail a check. Please wait at least a week before you reach out.  If you paid your registration fees via check, someone will be reaching out to you in the next few days to confirm a mailing address. 

We are working to provide online training resources to you shortly and hope to be able to offer boy’s and girl’s clinics later this summer or early in the fall, as well as the boy’s fall league, if possible.  Please watch your email for more information as it becomes available. 

 

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me or any of the board members.
