Frequently Asked Questions

How do I register for the season?

Registration is open from the beginning of November through mid-January.  A link to the registration page will be available when registration is active, and we will announce the opening of registration on the site as well as through social media.

What size uniform does my player need?

How long is the season?

The practice / game season typically runs from the end of March through early June.  The are variations each year in the timing based on team schedules as well as how well teams do in the playoffs.

What are winter skills clinics?

To provide more opportunity for our players to get ready for the season, several skills clinics are offered in the winter for our U10, U12, and U14 players.  The clinics are typically scheduled in January and February on Saturdays and Sundays depending on field availability.  Winter skills clinics are optional, but we highly recommend players attend as they provide a great way to get a jump start on the season.

What equipment is required?

Except for U6 where all equipment is provided as part of the program, all players must have the following equipment at the beginning of the season:

  • Lacrosse stick
  • Helmet
  • Shoulder pads
  • Arm/Elbow pads
  • Gloves
  • Mouth guard
  • Protective athletic cup
  • Cleats
  • Optional: Rib Pads

Helmets, shoulder pads, arm/elbow pads, and gloves must be lacrosse specific equipment as other equipment may look similar (i.e. football helmets or hockey gloves), but they are not designed appropriately for lacrosse.  

Where can I buy equipment?

Lacrosse equipment can be purchased at most major sports retailers, but specialized retailers such as ASC Lacrosse, Lacrosse Monkey, and Lacrosse Unlimited carry a much wider selections of lacrosse equipment.

Note for new players:

The most important piece of equipment is a player's stick, and we recommend you do not purchase a stick or head from any of the major sports retailers.  These sticks are not properly strung, and unless you know how to string a stick, they are difficult to use.  For a ready-to-use stick, we recommend the String King Complete 2 series of sticks.  They have sticks appropriate for each age group, and the Junior (ages 9 and under), Intermediate (ages 10 - 14), and Senior (ages 14+) are solid sticks for beginning players.

How can I become a volunteer?

As a community run organization we are dependent on volunteers to be successful.  If you are interested in becoming a volunteer in any capacity, whether that is coaching (no experience required), fundraising, photography, or team management, we are always happy to have new people join the organization.  If you are interested, fill out our volunteer form today.
