Out of District Players - Will Pope Jr Greyhound Lacrosse accept players zoned outside of the Pope High School district into the REC program?
Pope Jr Greyhound Lacrosse prioritizes roster spots for players that live in/attend a Pope HS feeder school. Out of district players MAY be accepted into the REC program, but the decision is evaluated on a season-by-season basis dependent on available roster spots. Please Note: This only applies to the REC program.
Included in the registration fee is a player pack which includes a short sleeve Under Amour shirt, Under Armour shorts and a personalized Spring 2021 bag tag. The shooter shirt is worn under your pads during games and you'll wear the shorts during games as well. Your child will need a boy'slacrosse stick (pocket is deep to hold the ball more securely), helmet, colored mouth guard, shoulder pads, elbow pads, gloves, cleats (soccer are fine), a water bottle, and a protective athletic supporter (cup). Rib pads are a personal preference, but not necessary at this level. Equipment is available to rent from Lax4Community. Be sure to also purchase a lacrosse ball for your player as he'll need it to practice at home.
A $100 deposit check (made payable to Jr Greyhound Lacrosse) will be required at the first practice so that your child may receive a practice pinnie and a team jersey. The check will be returned to you when we receive both items back at the end of the season, assuming they are in good condition.
