Summer 2017 Registration Now Open

by Brian Stanton

Mi Elite Lacrosse has finalized its schedule for the summer 2017 season. This year, we have made a few changes based on feedback from last year and are hoping to make some great improvements for the new year! 

  • We will now be changing our high school format to two OPEN Grad year teams as opposed to three teams split by graduation classes. This is to insure that our teams will be competitive and have a quality number of players that allow for good amounts of playing time but also allow for rest time in order for us to play at our highest level. The teams will attend all of the same tournaments and will be split up based on age, skill, and commitment to the program (being able to attend tournaments/practices). 
  • Teams will have set rosters that will stay for the entire summer. There will not be instances of players playing for multiple teams unless there is an emergency and we need enough players to participate. 
  • All teams will practice on Mondays and Wednesdays at Chippewa Middle School in Okemos with the two high school teams going from 4:00-6:00 pm and the Middle School teams (2021-2024 grad years) will practice from 6:30-8:30 pm. All teams will have 12 practices for the season. 
  • The IWLCA Midwest Cup for the high school teams will now take place outside of Chicago this year instead of Cincinnati. 
  • Currently our staff for the summer is as follows: 
    • Mackenzie Lawler: Current D1 assistant at Central Michigan University, former D1 player at Robert Morris University 
    • Ashley Glenn: Current D2 assistant at Northern Michigan University, former D3 player at Albion College 
    • Chloe Zdybel: Currently works in marketing at Dart Container, former D2 player at Grand Valley State University 
    • Olivia Sherman: Current junior player at D2 University of Findlay 
    • Courtney Humphrey: Current sophomore player at D1 UC Davis 
    • Alex Vander Molen: Current freshman player at D1 Ohio State University 
    • with more to come

Spots are on a first come first serve basis. Each team will have 20-22 players including a goalie on it. Please sign up on the individual team pages ASAP if you want a spot for summer 2017.
