8U Division (Grades 1-2)

Welcome to the Mercer Island Elementary School program for players in grades 1-2. Our goal is to practice and develop play; improve hand-eye coordination, footwork, shooting skills; advance cardiovascular and lacrosse fitness in a supportive group setting for enhanced mental and physical health. 

Practice Dates/Location:  Grades 1-2 will have one practice per week (mix of Mondays + Tuesdays) beginning the week of March 27th until 5/23 from 4:30 - 5:30pm. No games or practices over Memorial Day weekend or Spring Break.

Games: 8U games/scrimmages (5 in total for our rostered players) are scheduled on a Saturday or Sunday for about 1 hr. They begin the weekend after Spring Break (April 23) and finish on May 22. Depending on their comfort level, new 1st graders are welcome to join our 8U rosters and participate in games. They also may choose to participate in practices and scrimmages as they develop fundamental skills and gain confidence in their game play. 

Coaches: Our players will be coached by a combination of MIGLAX adult coaches, parent volunteers (please email [email protected] if you are interested in coaching) and MIHS Varsity and JV players.


All players should wear cleats, dress for the weather (rain or shine) and bring the following to each session (there will be no sharing of equipment of any kind): 

  • Waterbottle
  • Eye Gear
  • Stick
  • Mouthguard
  • Mask

Please see our equipment info page for more information.

Refund Policy:

Refunds of MIGLAX registration fees will only be granted in the event of a change in the status of the player. Possible reasons for granting a refund include a change in the player’s health, a change of address, a change in family status, or similar consideration.

The amount of refunds granted will be determined as follows: 

  • On or prior to program start date, 100% of the total registration fee, less $15 to cover administration fees.
  • After program start date, no refunds will be granted except for a change in the player’s health preventing that player from practicing or playing with the team or if the family is moving off Mercer Island. The amount of the refund will be pro-rated based on the length of the season remaining and will in no event exceed 50% of the registration fee, less $15 to cover administration fees.
