Refund Policy:

In the event of a cancelled season, refunds will be given based on a prorated amount, based on 7 months of practicing and games. Please note we incur fees from the start of the season all the way through the end.

In the event a student wishes to no longer pursue playing lacrosse and would like to withdraw from the team, there is a no refund policy.  Coaches salaries, uniform orders and other supplies are all pre-ordered based on the number of players early in the fall so a large amount of funds are spent early in the year.

  • Expert Coaching
