Mag-U (Props Lacrosse) is a volunteer board led non-profit 501(c)(3) registered (EIN # 26-1095160) youth sports club promoting the sport of lacrosse. The club serves grades K-8 for the Seattle neighborhoods of Magnolia, Ballard, Fremont, Phinney Ridge, Greenwood, and Broadview.
We chose the name “Propellers” for our teams because it’s positive nature, uniqueness, and its symbolism is indigenous to the communities of Magnolia and Ballard which are surrounded by water and home to Fisherman’s Terminal.
Propel is a powerful verb that conveys the ideals of our club’s motto – “individual commitment, team results”. At the end of each season we honor a player from each of Mag-U’s teams who best represent those ideals and honor them as “Blades” trophy winners.
Our mission is to introduce lacrosse to elementary and middle school boys. We strive to teach important life lessons, character, sportsmanship, communication skills, work ethic, integrity, accountability and responsibility.
Mag-U embraces the ELM (effort, learning, and mistakes) principles of the Positive Coaching Alliance. 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 equipment, scholarships and education opportunities for coaches.
We also encourage parents to get involved as volunteers and assist in club or team management. To volunteer with Mag-U, please connect with us via the handy form on the contact page.
