SAFETY UPDATE - MILC families have the option to purchase certified chest/shoulder protection equipment through the MILC equipment store.
Beginning in 2022 lacrosse players must wear chest/shoulder protection that meets the NOCSAE ND200 standard (National Operating Committee Standards for Athletic Equipment). This standard enhances lacrosse player safety by reducing the risk of impact forces to the chest. This new rule is mandatory in 2022 at the NCAA (college) and NFHS (high school) levels. The new rule is not yet mandatory at the youth level (K-8th), although you may read information from USA Lacrosse stating that it is mandatory at all levels. Regardless, enhanced player safety is a good thing at all ages. The MILC has coordinated to make NOCSAE ND200 standard shoulder/chest protection available to MILC players at discounted prices. The most significant discount is on the Maverik EKG Speed Pad. Products are expected to ship in Nov/Dec.

Cascade League Fall 2021 - 9th & 10th graders with Varsity Player Coaches
Welcome back to the 2021/2022 school year! Fall Ball is off to a great start with youth teams formed at every level (Kinder, 1st/2nd, 3rd/4th, 5th/6th & 7th/8th) and coaches meeting at The Lid Park every Sunday. High school aged teams (9th/10th & 11th/12th) are also playing this fall, with teams entered into the Cascade Fall Ball League & I-90 Indoor League. We are also busy planning various club events including the Youth Program Mandatory Parent Meeting on November 3rd and the annual Poinsettia & Greens Sale will launch this week though mid-November. I want to thank all of the volunteers and coaches that have made this happen. It's so wonderful to see all the happy faces back on the field. GO MI! ~ Sarah Rowe, President
Black Team & Silver Team - Rosters
Congratulations to every player who participated in the 2021 Silver Team & Black Team tryouts. It was a very competitive day of physical fitness testing, footwork drills, stick skills evaluation and scrimmaging. Everyone did a great job! Fall rosters below:
Silver Team: Brown, Dubois, Galgon, Helman, Howard, Kile, Leclercq, Long, Luu, Rosato, Rozman, Stewart, Sweeney & Topol.
Black Team: Baxter, Burkey, Galgon, Jensen, Larsen, Law, Manson, McBride, Neher, S. Poole, Ronaldson, Rubenstein, Schatz, Weil & Wolff
All registered Fall Ball players (5/6 & 7/8) who didn’t make the Silver Team & Black Team rosters will automatically be placed on the 5/6 Maroon Team & 7/8 Maroon Team rosters. As we explained to everyone at tryouts, the coaching staff will continue to evaluate every player at Fall Ball and will eventually call-up additional players for both the Silver Team & the Black Team. Keep working hard!
