 Girls' Lacrosse for Spring Season 2021

General Information and FAQs about RVLC Girls Lacrosse

Registration will open on November 2nd, 2020.

We expect high participation again this year so it is important that you sign up as early as possible. Each age group will have a registration quota, and once the quota is reached, additional registrants will be waitlisted.

The practice and game schedules are subject to change due to Covid-19 restrictions.  Please stay tuned.


Age Groups for Spring 2021 Season

U14: 7th and 8th grade

U12: 5th and 6th grade

U10: 3rd and 4th grade

U8:   1st  and 2nd grade



U8: players will not need to attend evaluations and will be placed on teams based on, among other things, the schools they attend.  Our objective is to have equally balanced teams.   

U10, U12 and U14: players will need to attend at least one evaluation to assure proper team placement.  Our goal is to ensure that each player is placed on a team that best matches her skill set and that will allow each player to grow and develop with teammates at a similar skill level.  To ensure an unbiased evaluation, each player will be evaluated by independent contracted evaluators during two sessions. 

The evaluation committee consists of independent evaluators and RVLC coaches.

Evaluation Dates and Times:  To Be Announced


A versus B Teams

“A” teams require a full time commitment for practices and games over other spring sports. “B” Teams provide a little more flexibility to accommodate other sports or weekend conflicts (playing time is at coaches discretion if attendance becomes an issue).                          



RVLC will use the same uniform design as last year.  New players will be assigned a number and will be able to purchase their uniform from the online store.  The online uniform store will be available to all players if they need to reorder new sizes, replacements or spares.   All members will be notified via email when the online store is open with ordering instructions.


Player Numbers

RVLC will assign new players with a jersey number.  This number will be the player’s number for their RVLC career.  Please do not request a new number or order a uniform with a number other than that that has been assigned.   We will advise of your players number (new and returners) in the online uniform store when it opens. 


Online Logo Store

RVLC has a team logo store for items such as shirts, hats, hoodies, equipment bags, etc..  This store will have a limited window of when it is open as all items are custom due to the logo and are shipped to screen printer at the same time AFTER the store closes.  Items are typically delivered 30-45 days after the store closes.  We will send an email notifying of when the store will be open.  Please note that we do not carry inventory, so please order while the store is open.



Each player is required to provide his/her own equipment.  Please see here for full details.

Every RVLC coach is required to participate in the "Positive Coaching Alliance Program" (PCA).  We also strongly encourage all of our coaches to attend at least one of the RVLC sponsored coaching clinics prior to the start of the season.

RVLC boys and girls coaching staff consists of parent and non-parent head coaches who typically have HS, college, or professional lacrosse backgrounds.

Every parent coach in the spring season is a volunteer. 

If interested in being a boys or girls coach, please contact us!


Fall Ball

RVLC runs a Fall Ball program for U8-14 from September thru November on Sunday mornings at High School 1327 (formerly Drake High School).  Registration opens in early summer.



Ross Valley Lacrosse Club is a 100% volunteer run organization. The success of our club depends on club-wide volunteers. There are many opportunities to volunteer: coach, scorekeeper, timekeeper, sideline manager, equipment manager, team parent, and evaluations check-in person. If a time commitment is an issue for your family, there is a $175 opt-out fee.  Otherwise, please be prepared to help the club and your team with some of the tasks needed to make this a successful season.


Waitlist Policy

Waitlisted players will be cleared from the waitlist as positions become available and based on a number of factors including the number of years with the Grizzlies and performance ranking at evaluations. The waitlist will not necessarily be cleared based on the date of registration.
