Dear RVLC Community,

Happy New Year!  We hope 2021 is a great year for everyone and includes playing lots of lacrosse!  While Covid still restricts what we are able to do, we are excited to move into the lacrosse season and will be offering as much lacrosse as we can under current state and county guidelines.  The email below will highlight some information for the upcoming season.

  • Registration:  Registration will be closing soon!  If you haven’t registered, please do so HERE.  Please pass along the word to your friends!
  • Evaluations:  We are pleased to announce that we will be holding modified, social distance evaluations.  Evaluations will be optional for players, however, “A” team placement will require attendance to at least one of the evaluations.  We encourage players to attend both evaluation dates as this will be a fun time for the kids to get out, see their friends and play some lacrosse!  As usual, we will not have evaluations for our U8 girls and boys.  The evaluation committee consists of RVLC head coaches, HS coaches, and travel team coaches. The goal is to ensure that each player is placed where she/he will be competing in an environment that best matches her/his skill set. The dates for U10, U12 and U14 evaluations are below:
    • Sunday January 31st at High School 1327 (formerly Drake)
      • Girls U10, U12, U14:  Sunday January 31st 9:00am -10:30
      • Boys U10: Sunday January 31st 11:00am – 12:30
      • Boys U12: Sunday January 31st  1:00pm – 2:30
      • Boys U14: Sunday January 31st  3:00pm – 4:30
    • Saturday February 6th at Red Hill Turf (behind Safeway)
      • Girls U10, U12, U14:  Saturday February 6th 9:00am – 10:30
      • Boys U10: Saturday February 6th 11:00am – 12:30
      • Boys U12: Saturday February 6th 1:00pm – 2:30
      • Boys U14: Saturday February 6th 3:00pm – 4:30
  • Team Formation:  Teams will be announced the week of February 15th
  • Spring Season Practices:  This has been a difficult year for all youth sports clubs to navigate.  However we are happy to announce we will begin practices following state and county guidelines. Here is a basic overview for team practices with more information to be released in the coming weeks:
  • Practices:  Team will practice at least two days a week, M-F from 4pm – 5:30pm pre Daylight Savings time, and will adjust to 4:30pm – 6pm post DST.  Specific team practice days and locations will be announced the week of February 15th.
    • Girls and Boys U14 & U12 & U10 will begin practices the week of March 1st.
    • Girls and Boys U8 will begin practices the week of March 15th.
  • Games:  We are planning for the Opening Weekend of games to be March 20th & 21st.  We will not have games the weekend of April 3rd-4th or April 10th-11th for families who plan to travel for Spring Break.  The season will run through the end of May.  Game schedules will be announced with as much advance notice as possible and are subject to change.  *We are following State and County guidelines for when we are in the appropriate tier and able to play games against other teams, so thank you for your flexibility and patience.
  • Registration Fees:  The balance of Registration Fees will be billed in early February.  In the event that we have a significant disruption or we are not able to offer games we will be offering refunds similar to last year.
  • Uniforms:  Because this is an unusual year, we will not be requiring families to purchase uniform packages.  RVLC will be purchasing custom reversible pinnies for each player that will serve as both practice and game jersey.  The cost of the pinnies will be included in the Registration Cost and is the player’s to keep. 
  • Team Store: The RVLC team store is now open and ready for families to purchase all their favorite RVLC gear, including hoodies, lacrosse backpacks, shooter shirts, buffs, masks and more!  The store will remain open until January 24th, so please follow this link to order all sorts of cool gear for your family:   https://stores.allusportswear.com/team-stores/ross-valley-lacrosse.html

The Ross Valley Grizzlies are now part of the West Bay Lacrosse League

We are pleased to let our families and community know that the Grizzlies are now part of the new, West Bay Lacrosse League.

The Grizzlies and our fellow, founding member clubs are committed to providing the best possible competitive lacrosse environment for our families. We have joined together as a regional group that includes most of the top clubs in Northern California to create quality competition for our teams during the spring season, while also working together to grow and honor the great sport of lacrosse. Our goals for the league are simple.

  • Play a highly competitive league schedule every spring season.
  • Maintain strong relationships with all local lacrosse clubs and continue to play games against our favorite and most competitive out-of-league opponents
  • Create an end of season NorCal Championship Tournament.
  • Work together to ensure we continue to grow the game and provide our families with the best possible lacrosse experience.
  • U8 and U10B Teams will continue to compete in the Marin League

What does this mean to you as a Ross Valley family?  This is largely an administrative decision, designed to allow our club greater flexibility to provide the best lacrosse to our community, so the impact will be fairly transparent to you, and we will continue to plan and deliver the forthcoming season just as we have in previous years.

Of course there is a great deal of uncertainty with youth sports right now due to the COVID 19 pandemic.  We are working with our fellow league members to deliver a great season, and we will be reporting back with more details as registration and the season takes shape.  However, forming this group of large, highly competitive, and like minded clubs gives us tremendous flexibility to adapt to whatever landscape we need to deal with in the new year. 

Members of the West Bay Lacrosse League:

  • Ross Valley Grizzlies
  • Southern Marin Wolfpack
  • Novato Nighthawks
  • Firehawks Lacrosse Club
  • San Francisco Riptide
  • Coyotes Lacrosse Club
  • West Valley Redhawks
