2022 Spring Season Information
Official team practices for the Spring Season begin during the week of January 17, 2022. Additonal opportunities for skill development, conditioning and open sessions to learn the game will be available during December and January.
Each Youth team will practice two times a week and the High School team will practice two times a week. Details on the specific days, times and practice location for each age group will be released soon.
Team registrations are available for the following age groups:
High School (Grades 9-12)
Uniform orders and helmet wrap orders will be done during the registration process. Due to the length of time is takes to receive uniforms, we are unable to accept any late registrations.
Every player is required to have a current membership through USA Lacrosse. You may fulfill this requirement during the registration process, or follow this link to the USA Lacrosse website to purchase your player's membership before registration: https://membership.usalacrosse.com/create-account/accounts
Each player is responsible for having all required equipment for lacrosse. We can provide recommendations on brands and styles of equipment to registered players at the parent meeting that will take place after registration is closed. We will do our best to equip new players with equipment we have to share until it is reasonable for them to purchase their own. This equipment is only available on a first come first serve basis. We have a limited supply available. For details on required equipment, please visit USA Lacrosse website through the following links:
The season schedule will be posted to our website as soon as we have it finalized. Southern Elite Lacrosse is a member of the Mississippi Scholastic Lacrosse Association and plays teams from across the state of Mississippi for League play. In addition, Southern Elite plays teams from the panhandle of Florida, South Alabama, and South Louisiana. Youth Games are played on Saturdays and the High School games are on Saturdays, occasional Wednesday night games and sometimes (but rarely) on Sundays.
There will be a parent meeting during the month of December.

Frequently asked questions:
How do I register my son?
Return to our website home page and click on the "Register Now" icon. Establish a family account on our website and provide parent information and player information. Each player will be required to have a USA Lacrosse membership for registration. This can be purchased prior to registration OR it can be done during the registration process.
Registration fees are paid via debit card or credit card during the registration process. In addition, fees can be subdivided into monthly payments through the spring season. The payment plan is available directly through the website during registration. All fees must be paid before the final deadline in accordance with the payment plan established for the 2022 Spring Season.
Be sure to keep your USA Lacrosse membership number available for entry during the registration process. Memberships must be renewed on an annual basis and the player's membership must be valid through the entire season. (For example, if the renewal date is March of 2022, the registration site will not allow the player registration to be completed until the renewal is inclusive of the last day of May 2022 since it is the last month of our active season.)

What do the fees for registration cover?
The registration fees for the 2022 season include the uniform package for each age segment, conditioning clinics and skill development sessions through the month of December, practice sessions for the spring season beginning in January and ending at conclusion of the season, and fees affiliated with game play during the regular spring season.
Families are responsible for their own meal costs, transportation and transportation fees to and from games.
Will Fundraising opportunities be available?
During the season, Southern Elite Lacrosse does as much as possible to raise funds to cover fees we incur during the season that are not subdized fully through the registration fees paid by our players. The funds we raise are used to help pay facility use fees, hourly trainer fees we incur during game days, referee costs and League fees associated with annual membership and jamboree entry fees.
Does my player get to keep his uniform?
Yes. The players are able to keep the uniforms they receive for the season. The uniform design is updated every 2 years. During the interim season, if the player has taken good care of his uniform, not lost any pieces of the uniform, and it still fits, they do not have to order a new uniform in the second season. In recent years we have been fortunate to have corporate sponsors subsidize uniform fees. Uniform replacement fees became very costly due to players losing them or enduring excessive wear and tear from the use of the uniform outside of regular season. We have moved to a cost share system in which the corporate sponsorships will be allocated to a portion of the uniform fees, but not all of the fee. (The player's responsibility for the uniform fee has been included in the player registration fees seen above.)
