Each player will be required to fundraise throughout the season.
Our fundraising goal for the 2013 lacrosse season is $16,000.
This will allow us to continue to provide a quality playing experience throughout the year. For 2013, your donation will help us to provide a 20% subsidy per player for the Hawaii trip and continue to defer the cost of coaches salaries, league dues, officials fees, hotel rooms, charter bus rentals, equipment, team gear and provide team meals on the road.
Each player will be expected to work one-two hour shift at homecoming selling team merchandise. Shifts will be filled based on seniority and assigned by homecoming committee chair.
The projected number of games for either team is 16. No games will be played the weekend before or during Spring break. Both teams will try to coordinate travel together as much as possible.
