Policy of Out of Area Play and Transfer Between Clubs
This policy provides an overview of how Ross Valley Lacrosse Club (RVLC) manages instances with players playing out of their respective geographic area of their regional home club and / or the transferring of players between clubs.
RVLC is a volunteer led, community-based lacrosse club with a commitment to servicing the families who live or go to school in its geographic region which includes the cities of Kentfield, Greenbrae, Ross, Fairfax, San Anselmo, Corte Madera and Larkspur. RVLC will only accept players outside of its region for special circumstances and in agreement with the regional Home Club of where the player is transferring from, on a case-by-case basis. Special circumstances do not include a player’s desire to join teammates from an out-of-season travel team (i.e., Tenacity, Advnc, Outlaws, etc). Special circumstances do include if a player goes to school outside of the home region, bullying, other social issues or an unhealthy environment for a player or family.
NEW MEMBERS are Members who are new to the sport and have not previously played for a lacrosse club. New Members are encouraged to sign up with their home regional club. RVLC will not accept members outside of their home region unless they go to school in that area or have a special circumstance that has the formal release approval of the home club.
TRANSFEREES are Members who played for another lacrosse club in a previous year. Players will not be permitted to transfer to a new club unless there are special circumstances. Both clubs need to be in agreement that the circumstances are special and neither club may accept a player without the consent of the other club.
RVLC strictly prohibits its Board Members, Coaches or Members from recruiting players from other clubs.
