Still Interested in registering for Lacrosse?

IF YOU MISSED THE JAN 15TH UNIFORM ORDER DEADLINE, BUT STILL WANT TO PLAY LACROSSE, PLEASE CONTACT US! WE CANNOT GUARANTEE A UNIFORM WILL ARRIVE BY THE BEGINNING OF THE SEASON, BUT WE WILL STILL WELCOME YOU!

 

Dear Lacrosse players,

I will be out of town from Thursday January 19 to February 2, and will have limited access to email. In the meantime, if you have any questions about the season, please ask one of the Dunlap coaches at the clinic for assistance. If you have not signed up but are interested in playing the season, please register online before the first practice so that I will see your registration confirmation. I will talk to you about uniforms at the first practice on Feb 4. Please note that if you have never played before, you will need to purchase a helmet, should pads, arm pads, and gloves to be allowed to play. We no longer have any additional rental gear.

I will be checking email periodically, but cannot guarantee a response in a timely manner. I have listed the emails of one coaches from each team in case you need to contact them for questions.

Thank you.
