The focus of our Spring Training season is skills development to better prepare the players for an earlier start to the Summer Season. We will be indoors for the first 3 sessions and then on EPHS artificial turf and Flying Cloud Lower Field (weather permitting). We plan to hold 2-3 scrimmages on the EPHS Turf A.

The Eden Prairie Lacrosse Association will be offering winger beginner lacrosse clinics for boys of all ages. The key focus of these sessions is to allow boys their first exposure to the sport of lacrosse regardless of age or ability.

All the sessions will be run by Coach Scott Hugdahl. Scott has coached all levels of youth, High School and travel lacrosse programs for Eden Prairie and across the state. He is a board member for Eden Prairie, the YLM, MLA and US Lacrosse and was the recipient of the US Lacrosse National Youth Coach of the Year Award. He's is also the proud father of 2 HS All-American Lacrosse players who went on to play 4 years of NCAA lacrosse.
