Welcome to Lake Washington Lacrosse!

Registration for 2021 Spring Lacrosse is NOW OPEN!

Lake Washington Lacrosse Club (LWLAX) is pleased to announce that we have opened registration for our 2021 Spring season.  Due to Governor Inslee's COVID State of Emergency, there are still details that will likely change as we move through the Safe Start Washington phased reopening plan.  Additionally, we will have to contend with dependencies on other non-LAX sports programs, where shifting schedules may result in challenges securing fields for practices and games.

As of now, the plan is to start the season about a month later than the typical for LWLAX - moving out our first week of practice from mid-February to mid-March.  To maximize the number of practices and games during the season, we are looking to extend the season into mid to late-June.  These dates will be coordinated and finalized in collaboration with the WHSBLA (for high school) and GELL (for youth programs).  Typically, GELL will follow the lead of WHSBLA, but this unprecedented year has shown that planning may see subtle alterations, causing a different start/end to the season at the high school and youth level.  

We also realize there are summer select programs that typically begin their play at the beginning of June, so we will be working to minimize the impact of scheduling challenges created for players who opt to continue their play into the summer with select programs.  We have spoken to directors for each of the travel programs in the area and they have assured us they will do their best to mitigate conflicts by starting their summer tournament season later than usual.

Please note that your 2021 registration fees cover two summer tournaments, which are typically paid for separately.
