Captains' Practices start August 16th!

Both the Boys and Girls Varsity Teams will be holding Captains' Practices from 11AM-1PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays til school starts at Lions Park in Golden Valley.  All 9th-12th graders are welcome.  No registration required. Its a great opportunity to try out the sport and meet other players. Please note these informal practices are run by student captains without coaches present.

Fall Registration is Open!

Registration will change a bit this year but not that much that you will notice a big change. We will have completely separate registrations for Fall and Winter/Spring seasons. The cost for registration will include practices and t-shirts for all players and fall-league games for Varsity players. We are coordinating some scrimmages for MSL and will know more about that as the season progresses. 

The cost for Fall registration is $250 for Varsity and $115 for MSL – Just to be clear, costs for the Winter/Spring season will be separate. That registration will open towards the beginning of December.

Fall Practice Schedule

We don’t have specific dates or times yet for Captains' practices but we expect them to start for both boys and girls the week of August 15th. For those new to the HURT, the team Captains run these practices 2-3 days per week leading up to the start of school. They are generally at Lion’s Park and run someplace between 11:00-3:00. They are open to all players entering 9th grade and above. They are NOT run by coaches and most of the time they are not supervised by an adult. 

Practices will run similar to last year and be at both Maetzold Field and the Minnetonka Civic Center. The first practice will be Thursday Sept. 6th at Maetzold. The complete schedule will be posted as soon as it’s available but plan on Varsity practices Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Practices for MSL will be Sunday and Thursday evenings.
