Evaluations

U8 and U10: players will not need to attend evaluations and will be placed on teams based on, among other things, the schools they attend.  Our objective is to have equally balanced teams.   

U12 and U14: players will need to attend two evaluations to assure proper team placement.  Our goal is to ensure that each player is placed on a team that best matches her skill set and that will allow each player to grow and develop with teammates at a similar skill level.  To ensure an unbiased evaluation, each player will be evaluated by Tenacity Project during two sessions.   

Evaluation Dates and Times:

Sunday, November 12 from 3:00-4:30 at Drake High School

Sunday, November 19 from 10:30 – 12:00 at Branson High School

Please arrive 30 mins early for check in.

 

A versus B Teams

“A” teams require a full time commitment for practices and games over other spring sports.  “B” Teams provide a little more flexibility to accommodate other sports or weekend conflicts (playing time is at coaches discretion if attendance becomes an issue).                          

 

Uniforms

RVLC will use the same uniform design as last year.  New players and those moving up to U10 will be assigned a number and will be able to purchase their uniform from the online store in January.  The online uniform store will be available to all players if they need to reorder new sizes, replacements or spares.  This year we will require ALL RVLC players to purchase a practice jersey (pinnie) from the online uniform store.   The uniform store will open in January.  All members will be notified via email of when it is open with ordering instructions.

 

Player Numbers

RVLC will assign new players and players moving to U10 with a jersey number.  This number will be the player’s number for their RVLC career.  Please do not request a new number or order a uniform with a number other than that that has been assigned.  With 300 players in the program you can only imagine how tedious it is to manage numbers and avoid any overlap year to year.  We will advise of your players number (new and returners) in the online uniform store when it opens. 

 

Online Logo Store

RVLC has a team logo store for items such as shirts, hats, hoodies, equipment bags, etc..  This store will have a limited window of when it is open as all items are custom due to the logo and are shipped to screen printer at the same time AFTER the store closes.  Items are typically delivered 30-45 days after the store closes.  This year we will open the store for a short time in October to allow for Holiday shopping.  We will reopen the store in January for the Spring Season.  Please note that we do not carry inventory, so please order while the store is open.

 

Equipment

Each player is required to provide his/her own equipment.  Please see here for full details.

Coaching

Every RVLC coach is required to participate in the "Positive Coaching Alliance Program (PCA).  We also strongly encourage all of our coaches to attend at least one of the RVLC sponsored coaching clinics prior to the start of the season.


RVLC boys and girls coaching staff consists parent and non-parent head coaches who typically have HS, College, or Professional lacrosse backgrounds.

Every parent coach in the spring season is a volunteer. 

If interested in being a boys or girls coach, please contact us!

Volunteers

Ross Valley Lacrosse Club is a 100% volunteer run organization. The success of our club depends on club-wide volunteers. There are many opportunities to volunteer: coach, scorekeeper, timekeeper, sideline manager, equipment manager, event organizer, team parent, team store attendant and evaluations check-in person. If a time commitment is an issue for your family, there is a $175 opt-out fee (per family).  Otherwise, please be prepared to help the club and your team with some of the tasks needed to make this a successful season.
