Adjustments for COVID-19

See how we have made adjustments for events based on COVID-19 findings, research, and values that pertain to our athletes safety and success

We are very pleased to share our plan with you based on our research and efforts in creating a successful, safe, and exciting summer lacrosse program. Priorities have come to the forefront that have shed light on areas where we can better support our student-athletes in creative recruitment strategies, additional training, and great events that give our kids a chance to compete. Through our years of experience, challenges presented with COVID, collaborations with coaches and advisors, and even recent findings we are confident that this is the best plan for Minnesota lacrosse players on this date May 11th, 2020.

  • Events that avoid nation wide exposure to areas of concern
  • Opportunity to refund a portion of dues to all members
  • Avoid airfare and extended out of region travel
  • Focus on Midwest travel which helps reduce costs
  • Events have more probability to be run at a same time and a safe manor
  • Events that are not mass populated and have control factors within reason
  • Tournaments that value NCAA recruitment and ensure the highest likely outcome based on planning/support
  • Tournaments that known opponents will plan to attend
  • Events host by "like minded organizations"
  • Events that are non conflicting based on rescheduled dates

HOW WE SELECT EVENTS

We follow a protocol that we have created through years of experience around 3 main factors. RECRUITMENT - COST - CONFLICT.

Recruitment- the value of recruitment exposure, variety, and staff who attends the event. Our festival non recruitment events (youth).

Cost- registration or individual fee of the event, and costs incurred on travel for the event

Conflict- Time conflicts, Holidays, opposing events, and separation between events to create proper development time between events
