The purpose of the Mini-Tyke and Tyke program is to introduce, emphasize and develop the fundamentals of the skills and game of lacrosse.  The focus of practices as well as games is to promote an environment that encourages participation, skill development, team work and the overall enjoyment of the game of lacrosse.

At the end of the season there a special "Mini-Tyke"  is held where all teams within the City come together to play one another in a fun setting.

Through the season, in order to encourage the development of this environment, there will be no standings for the Mini-Tyke and Tyke divisions.  "RO" will be displayed in place of a game score to show a game has been played.  Please take note that although no formal standings are kept for the Mini-Tyke and Tyke Divisions, standard game result procedures must still be followed (sending in the game sheets after each game).
