Props Lacrosse Club (formerly Magnolia United) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) (EIN #26-1095160) volunteer-led recreational youth sports club promoting the sport of lacrosse. The club serves boys and girls in grades 1-8 for the Seattle neighborhoods that feed the Ballard, Inglemoor, and Nathan Hale Seattle Public High Schools.

We chose the name “Propellers” for its positive nature, uniqueness, and symbolism of the Northwest Seattle area which is surrounded by water, and is home to Fisherman’s Terminal.

Propel is a powerful verb that conveys the ideals of our club’s motto of “individual commitment, team results”. At the end of each season we honor a player from each of Prop’s teams who best represent these ideals and honor them as “Blades” trophy winners.

Our mission as a recreational youth lacrosse club is to introduce the sport to elementary and middle school boys and girls. We strive to teach important life lessons, character, sportsmanship, communication skills, work ethic, integrity, team building, accountability and responsibility.

The Props Club embraces the ELM (effort, learning, and mistakes) principles of the Positive Coaching Alliance, whereby parents, coaches, and players agree to honor and respect the game and those competing. Coaches stay focused on providing a positive and engaging environment for practices and games.

Donations are fully tax deductible and go to support player equipment, scholarships, and educational opportunities for coaches.

We also encourage parents to get involved as volunteers and assist in club or team management. To volunteer, please connect with the Club Board via the handy form on the contact page.

For the 2023 Season, the Props Board volunteers are:
