Help!  I know nothing about lacrosse.

My child knows nothing about lacrosse, can he still register and play?
Brookfield Lacrosse Association is a member of the Milwaukee Area Youth Lacrosse Association (MAYLA).  Both BLA and MAYLA are developmental lacrosse associations.  It is not expected that any player at any level has played prior to joining.  Teams are distributed so that they are comprised of players with various levels of experience. 

When does the season run?
Youth lacrosse in our area is a spring sport.  Practices typically begin indoors in March and move outdoors in April.  Games begin the end of April.  The season is completed by mid June.
Opportunities to start and play outside of the season can be found by searching for "lacrosse brookfield, wi" on the internet  There are several "for profit" companies that host and run developmental programs and leagues.

What is the cost to register?
The 2015 registration fee is $250 for Brookfield and Elm Grove residents.  Non-resident registration is $275.  Late registrations (after 2/11) add $25 to the registration fee.

What about uniforms?
Uniforms cost $60 but can be worn multiple years as long as they fit and are still in good condition.  Once players are assigned a number, that number will never change.  As uniforms need to be replaced players have the option to replace an entire uniform or just the parts they need.
