Try Lacrosse for FREE in 2023-24

The Shakopee Youth Lacrosse Association (SYLA) is excited to announce that we have scheduled two "Try Lax Free" events that will give your child the opportunity to have fun and learn the game of lacrosse.  Our High School Varsity Lacrosse players, Board Members, and a few of our current youth athletes, will coach your child on the basics of lacrosse.

Last year, we had amazing attendance and lots of fun.  This year, we are looking forward to welcoming even more families to the sport of lacrosse.  For those multi-sport athletes, lacrosse is a tremendous crossover sport for football, hockey, basketball, soccer, and so many more!

SYLA will provide all necessary equipment.

Shakopee High School - Field House
100 17th Avenue West
Shakopee, MN 55379

Sunday, November 5th from 4-5pm 



Savage Sports Center Dome
13450 Dakota Ave S
Savage, MN
Monday, February 5th from 7-8pm

Kids of ages 5-14 (K - 8th grade)
Registration is necessary to properly plan for the event.

You may choose one or both of the dates. (Link Below)


This is a great opportunity to learn the game of lacrosse.  After your child tells you how much fun they had, you will have an opportunity to register for our summer season!

Winter Skills Sessions

Even though we could probably still be playing lacrosse outside, we aren't too far off from having a foot of snow and/or subzero temps at Saber Fields!  With that being said, SYLA has secured indoor time at the Savage Dome throughout the winter months for our 8U - 14U athletes.  Depending on the day, we have 1-2 hour blocks of time that will be available for our lacrosse athletes.  When we have 2 hours blocked, we will have 1 hour for girls and 1 hour for boys.  When we have just 1 hour booked, we will fit everyone into that hour.   If we do not get enough registrants for a specific time slot, we will open it up to everyone at that time.

The main purpose of these winter sessions is to get a stick in hand and to have fun! We will work on lacrosse fundamentals: scooping, passing, catching, dodging, and shooting. If we have enough registrants at each session, we will also have game play for 8U-14U.
