We are the premier Indoor lacrosse instructional and training organization in the Madison, WI area.  Middleton Lacrosse Academy (MLA)  was formed to bring together experienced coaches and give youth players in Dane County the opportunity to hone their lacrosse skills in the off-season.  Partnering with KEVA Sports Center allows us to have access to excellent indoor turf space and room for parents and players to watch and come together.  We will live our motto of "Work Hard, Have Fun."


Our training sessions are offered to Youth lacrosse players at the 11U/12U and 13U/14U levels.  They will be held on Sunday afternoons, starting at 1:30pm.  Two 1 hour sessions are offered, the first for 11U/12U and the second for 13U/14U players.
