We welcome all 2nd through 8th grade boys and girls to register for a rec team this Fall 2020 season!
Registration Fee: $250
Registration Dates: 8/3/2020 - 8/13/2020
Payment is not due during the Registration process. Fees will be collected once players have been placed on teams. If the season is cancelled after practices start, no refunds will be given.
Before registering, please review the Registration Details so you can ensure you have all the needed information to avoid registration delays and fees.
Included in the registration fee is a player pack which includes a shooter shirt, shorts and a personalized Fall 2020 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's lacrosse 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.
