2020 Boundary Update

For the 2020 season, leagues are moving toward community-based boundaries for teams. The main objective is to promote lacrosse at the youth levels and to prepare youth players to play high school lacrosse. To facilitate both objectives, players are only eligible to participate in the program (team) located in their designated geographical boundary.  These rules are intended to create an equitable environment in which teams can compete, prevent athletic recruiting, and prevent program shopping (choosing programs based on a coach or perception of competitive strength). Further, these rules seek to promote a local, grassroots, community approach to building the quantity and quality of lacrosse in our region. The program (team) for which a player is eligible is determined first by the school they attend and second by their home address.

Generally, players whose address falls within the Seattle Public School boundary areas that feed Roosevelt, Lincoln, Nathan Hale and Ingraham will be eligible to play for NSLAX. If you attend a private school that fields a team, you should play with that team.

The zip codes that are eligible are 98115, 98125, and 98105.  Portions of 98177, 98133, 98117, and 98103 are eligible.  

2019-20 Elementary Attendance Areas with Service Areas


Registration for new players for the 2020 season opens at 8:00 a.m. on Sunday, December 1, 2019  At that time, we expect to be registering new players at the 3rd grade level, and opening wait lists for grades 4th through 8th.   Please sign up for the wait lists. 

***IMPORTANT:  We are trying to field two 3/4 teams but do not want registration dues paid unless there is interest.  Any available positions on will be offered to those on the wait list on a first come, first serve basis.  

If your son is in grades 4-8, you will need to sign him up for our wait list.  There is no charge to sign up for the wait list, and no advance preparation is required.  There are limited spaces in the other grades and we don't want you to pay for registration dues unless we can ensure your son has a spot.  You will be notified within 48 hours as to whether a spot is currently available for your child.  

  • At the 4th grade level, we expect to make adjustments and will possibly add a 2nd 3/4 team.  
  • At the 6-8 grade level, we have only a few positions available and they will be offered to those on the wait list in the order signed up.  Even if we don't currently have any space at your son’s grade level, spots occasionally open up as the season approaches.
  • If your son is a 3rd, you will be able to register him directly.  In order to do so, you will need to enter his US Lacrosse membership number (available for $30 at  During the registration process you will also need to upload a scan or photograph of your child's birth certificate or passport as proof of his age, so please have that ready in advance. Because our program starts in third grade, we have a lot of openings at this level, and they don't typically fill up on the first day.  In other words, there's no need to jump through hoops to register a 3rd grader right at 8:00 a.m.
  • If you have a 2nd grader, and you are interested in having him play up with our 3rd/4th grade teams, you may sign him up for the wait list.  This situation requires approval from one of our coaches, so we will be contacting you to learn more about your son and any exposure he may have had to lacrosse.

Registration fees for the 2020 season are $375 and includes a uniform which your player will keep at the end of the season.  When selecting a uniform size for your son, we recommend choosing a size larger than he normally wears (available options are Youth S-XL, and Adult S-XXL).  Chest and waist size charts are located below.    

Prior to checkout, you will be offered AIG “Registration Saver” Insurance for $26.25.  This is an automatic offering and not something requested by NSLAX.  As this may raise the question about whether our fees are refundable, our official policy is that they are not.  However, we try to be reasonable and are normally willing to refund fees IF we are able to fill a player’s spot after he withdraws.  Obviously this becomes less likely once practices have begun.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to teach the fundamentals of lacrosse, team play and sportsmanship. We encourage learning in a supportive, community environment where individual effort is affirmed and mistakes are recognized as the foundation of mastery. We believe that winning is important, but consider the opportunity to teach life lessons and for everyone to play higher priorities.

We teach players to "Honor the Game" by respecting the rules, opponents, officials, teammates and themselves.

We expect players to make lacrosse a priority and give their full effort in both practices and games. While not always reflected on the scoreboard, our teams win when they put forth a winning effort and demonstrate improved lacrosse skills, better team play and good sportsmanship.
