US Lacrosse Membership: Are you current?
REMINDER: Make sure if your player's US Lacrosse Membership is going to expire that you renew. Expired membership = NO Game Play.
In order to participate in any games this season you must be a current US Lacrosse Member. The membership is $30 and you will receive great information about the sport.
Why does your player need to be registered with US Lacrosse? The teams that we play in the season are most often independent clubs, this means that their only insurance is through US Lacrosse. If a team insured by US Lacrosse plays a game against a team who has even one player on the field not registered with US Lacrosse their insurance is void. So, in order to have games, tournaments, jamborees, and/or shoot outs on our schedules ALL players must have current membership. Our volunteer coaches must also have membership, which will give them access valuable tools for coaching.
Our home game field is the Rotary Park Field on North Street.
