2020 Fall Player/Coach Registration in now OPEN
by posted 08/29/2020

Hello Players, Parents, Coaches and Team Administrators,
 
After much discussion and playing the waiting game with all the different school districts as to what decisions were going to be made regarding fall sports (as well as what the health officials are recommending) the KCMGLA Board has decided to move forward with the annual 7v7 Fall League this fall. Obviously, we did not make this decision lightly and we are going to constantly monitor the pulse with regard to health concerns in the metro area and could make adjustments on the fly if necessary. 
 
This fall schedule will be a little different than in years past. We have reserved 5 weeks of game play every Sunday beginning on Sept. 27th and running through Oct. 25th. We are going to schedule the first 4 weeks of the season once we know how many programs have registered and how many teams we will have as it relates to Upper and Lower divisions. The final week of the season (Oct. 25th) will be left open for the following purposes: KC Heartland Lacrosse is going to be hosting a 2-day tournament that weekend and we anticipate that some programs will want to participate. For those that do not choose to participate or those teams that ended up having to postpone a game due to a Covid-19 issue we will create a schedule for that final weekend (Oct. 25th) to end the season. We will not be having our own end of the fall season tournament as we have decided that at this time the priority is to get the girls playing and continue to grow the game of women's lacrosse.
 
All games will be played at Blue Valley North HS (12200 Lamar Ave, Overland Park Kansas 66209) and we currently have two fields reserved. This is due to the fact that we can no longer run 3 games on a field so we had to reserve 2 fields and will be running 2 games per field each day. Since we will now have essentially 4 game fields compared to 3 in the past, we should be able to not only social distance (per health care regulations) we will probably be able to finish a little earlier each week. Each team will play 2 games every Sunday. We will be sending out information related to what will be permitted as it relates to fans as well as officials, coaches, and players regarding the Covid-19 regulations the Blue Valley School District has imposed.
 
Please push out to all your programs the registration information so that we can start to get a better picture of the number of teams that each program will be fielding. I have attached a link to the league website to make things a little easier for all.
 
 
If anyone has any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me at any time.
