2021 Team Registration

Priority Registration is now open!  Register today to claim your spot on the Blackfish 2021 roster.

Season fees are $375. Due to the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, we will only be requesting a $100 deposit at the time of registration. Assuming we proceed with our season as planned, the $275 balance will be due on April 5th. If we do not proceed as planned, your deposit will be rolled over to a future season, or refunded if you are in 8th grade.

Open registration for players who are new to NSLAX will open at 8:00 AM on November 29th. 

There is no charge to sign up for the wait list so click on the link below.  Available spaces will be filled on a first come, first served basis. We expect to be registering new players at the 3rd, 4th and 5th grade level. Only a few positions are available for grades 6-8 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.

Select 2nd graders can be allowed to "play up" on the 3/4 team, pending coach approval. Sign up for the wait list and we will follow up with you.

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.

Player Eligibility

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. 


Geographical Boundaries explained

The objective of community boundaries is to promote lacrosse at the youth levels, and to prepare youth players to play high school lacrosse. 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.
