Props Lacrosse Club (formerly Magnolia United) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) (EIN #26-1095160) volunteer-led recreational youth sports club dedicated to promoting the sport of lacrosse. Serving boys and girls in grades 1-8, we cater to Seattle neighborhoods feeding into Ballard, Inglemoor, and Nathan Hale Seattle Public High Schools.
We chose the name “Propellers” for its positivity, uniqueness, and connection to Northwest Seattle’s water-surrounded locale, including Fisherman’s Terminal.
“Propel” is a powerful verb that embodies our club’s motto: “individual commitment, team results.” Each season, we honor a player from each team who best represents these ideals with the “Blades” trophy.
Our mission is to introduce elementary and middle school boys and girls to lacrosse while teaching essential life lessons such as character, sportsmanship, communication skills, work ethic, integrity, team building, accountability, and responsibility.
Embracing the ELM (effort, learning, and mistakes) principles of the Positive Coaching Alliance, the Props Club encourages parents, coaches, and players to honor and respect the game and its competitors. Our focus remains on providing a positive and engaging environment for practices and games.
Donations are fully tax-deductible and support player equipment, scholarships, and coaching education opportunities.
We invite parents to volunteer and assist with club or team management. To get involved, please connect with the Club Board via the contact form on our website.

|President / SMLYA League Rep||Mark Peabody|
