Mini Tyke is for kids born from 01/01/2011 through 12/31/2013.
The purpose of the Mini-Tyke and Tyke leagues is to introduce, emphasize, and develop the fundamental skills of lacrosse. The focus of practices as well as games is to promote an environment that encourages participation, skill development, and overall enjoyment of the game. At the end of the season, a special “Tyke/Mini Tyke Festival” is held where all teams come together to play one another in a fun atmosphere. Please note that although standings are not kept, standard game results procedures must be followed (ie. sending in the game sheets).
Mini Tyke Coordinator is Michelle Anhorn.
