Suburban Lacrosse League 2020 Spring Season Canceled

Official Statement Regarding the SLL Spring Season

The SLL Spring season is canceled per Governor Whitmer’s orders to indefinitely close all K-12 schools, and the requirement to suspend activities that are not necessary to sustain or protect life. This means that any form of practice (formal or informal) and contests (games or scrimmages) are prohibited through Friday, June 12, 2020. As community leaders of young athletes, we have a duty to teach by leading. It is up to each member program to help us all reduce the spread now, so we can get back on the fields by the fall.

Return to Play Pledge

The SLL and its member programs pledge to follow CDC guidelines regarding returning to play, specifically, when public health officials determine that the outbreak has ended in our local communities. At this point, we will work with them to identify the criteria for scaling back COVID-19 prevention actions. Everyone is hopeful that our return to play will be sooner rather than later. When it does occur, many programs have shown an interest in doing something lacrosse related and have indicated they may reach out to other programs.

Detroit Youth Lacrosse

Detroit Youth Lacrosse was one of the new additions to the Suburban Lacrosse League for the 2019 season. The organization was created by the Chandler Park Conservancy to support the health and well-being of Detroit youth and introduce them to the elite game of lacrosse.

Detroit Youth Lacrosse was featured in the April 2019 edition of US Lacrosse Magazine, highlighting their growth and the importance of expanding the presence of lacrosse in Detroit.


Clubs from the Detroit, Michigan suburbs play a regular season schedule that culminates in the Suburban Lacrosse League Championship Tournament in late May.

There are “A” and “B” divisions for grade-based teams – 7th/8th, 5th/6th, 3rd/4th and 1st/2nd.
