Cal High Lacrosse is a completely self-funded sport, no funds are provided by the school. We ask for a donation of $300 per player to help cover team expenses and if you cannot participate fully we ask that you consider contributing at least $200 to meet the minimum hard costs to run our program. You can pay via check or through the Cal High WebStore. If paying by check, please make the check out to Cal High Women's Lacrosse and include your players name in the memo line. Checks can be dropped off at school in the Finance Office. This amount is tax deductible.
Players will be issued Cal High Lacrosse uniforms at the start of the season. School uniforms must be returned at the end of the season. If not returned, a $500 fee must be paid to cover the uniform cost.
Additional fundraising activities will include SnapRaise (web based fundraising site for families and friends), Snack Shack for home games, Corporate Sponsorship (minimum $300 donation will receive banner to be hung at home games), and Grizzly Madness. Please see our Fundraising page for more information.
There will be many opportunities throughout the season to volunteer, some on game day and some behind the scenes. Volunteers are required for home and away games or the officials will not start play.
We will be using SignUpGenius for volunteer sign ups. Please see our Volunteering page to sign up.
You can find access to team game videos, team pictures, Cal High instagram, team records, etc on the Resources page.
We ask EVERYBODY in our program to respect teammates, coaches, and officials.
We expect all players and parents to commit and adhere to our Program Policies.
Arrive 15 minutes early at the very latest. This allows time for all of the athletes to get their shoes on, stretch what they need extra stretching on, and get some warmup passing in before practice starts.
Absences need to be told to the respective coach with AT LEAST 24 hours’ notice. Only excuses should be if you have an illness, a college visit, or an approved school event. Homework is not an excuse; time management is key. Last minute absences will result in not starting and/or reduced playing time in the following game.
Practice is mandatory. These are junior varsity and varsity teams and we have a standard for almost perfect attendance. By trying out and making these teams, you have made the commitment to your coaches, your teammates, and yourself to be on time every single day. All we ask is for you to be present, on time, and to try your best every day.
Practice rain or shine! Prepare by bringing a plastic garbage bag, athletic tape, 2 pairs of extra socks, a jacket, rain jacket, rain pants, gloves, any extra pieces of clothing to keep you warm. Dry out your shoes with paper towels or newspaper after you get home.
On game days, each athlete MUST attend 2 out of 3 (or 4) periods of school. If a player does not attend at least 2 periods and decides to play in a game, this will result in team disqualification from the game.
All injuries must be reported to Coach Geary and the school’s athletic trainer. If there are lingering issues, seeing a doctor is highly recommended.
JV: Everybody will play, but not everybody will get even playing time. Those who attend practice every day and perform well will earn the most playing time.
Varsity: Playing time is based on merit and is not equal or guaranteed. Playing time is earned in and out of practice
Players are the point of contact, not parents, for any questions regarding playing time.
