Welcome to the 2021 Spring Girls and Boys registration. WDM Lacrosse Club has moved our website and registration to the new US Lacrosse Management System (US LMS). Registration is now a single process to register and pay for your US Lacrosse Membership and WDM Lacrosse 2021 Season. Each player must have a current US Lacrosse Membership to participate in practices and games.
FEES: WDM Lacrosse Club has kept fees flat year over year. Unfortunately, the cancellation of the 2020 season had a significant impact to our operating budget; however, we are able to keep the cost to each player flat or slightly lower because there are no transaction fees when using the US Lacrosse Management System. We increased our fees to not exceed the transaction fees, keeping the overall cost flat for each player while helping the club with revenue to meet our operating costs.
NOTE: High School boys will need to complete the NELAX registration and pay fees separately. High School Girls will need to register with MGLL. We will notify you when the respective league has opened their registration for 2021.
COVID ACTION PLAN (CAP): WDM Lacrosse Club will continue to implement our CAP to ensure players and coaches are playing in a safe and thoughtful manner. The Club is staying abreast of federal, state and local public health guidelines and mandates. The Club will also follow local guidance from school districts, state athletic associations and US Lacrosse. The Club is confident that with the cooperation of parents, players and coaches, the plan will help mitigate the COVID transmission risk and keep us on the lacrosse fields. WDM Lacrosse Club will not issue refunds this year for COVID unless the season is cancelled before the start date. More information is provided on our COVID page on website.
COMMUNICATIONS: Sign up to receive communications on the Communication Form located below on the landing page of the website. Contact information provided during registration will only be used for registration purposes. The Communication Form allows players, parents, grandparents etc. to sign up individually for communications regarding schedules, games and changes without duplication.
If you would like to receive emails regarding upcoming events, activities and general information. Complete a communication form for each individual who wishes to receive communications. Note: if players wish to recieve communications, they will need to complete a form.
Due to an increase in COVID in cases in younger children and teens, we are going to side with caution and postpone our Jamboree until a later date. While we are very disappointed, the safety of our lacrosse family is our primary focus.
Join us for a fun evening to celebrate lacrosse. All boys & girls players, parents and families are invited. Bring a friend to try the game and help us grow WDM Lax.
