Riverside Girls Lacrosse Team Store is OPEN!


Here we have been very patient and the link to the team store is complete! Couple things I would like to draw your attention to:

  • The store will close on March 18th, items in hand by April 2nd
  • gRAMparent tshirt:  we all ordered this item directly from our wonderful Mrs Gabaldon, Riverside Lacrosse DOES NOT NEED TO ORDER TSHIRTS AGAIN ON THE TEAM STORE.  This team store link will go to other teams who might want a gRAMparent shirt for their athletes and that is why it is on our online store. 
  • Click on each item in the gear store to see the variety of colors.  Most items are available in our 3 flagship colors.
  • There are 2 links; one is for the gear store.  The second link is for a Riverside Girls Lacrosse blanket. 
  • Team backpack order is attached as a flyer.  We have to order those separately.  These are not mandatory, but we are doing a quick turn on these so we need your complete order and check by tomorrow at the Stone Bridge scrimmage.
  • MANDATORY ITEM:  The white long sleeve performance tshirt is our game day shooter.  PLEASE BE SURE THAT YOU ORDER THIS ITEM.  We are only making one item mandatory so please be sure that you order it:)



BACKPACKS:  Flyer attached

Happy shopping!

Riverside Girls Lacrosse Weekly Update: Week of March 5th


We are headed into SCRIMMAGE Week 2018!  Very exciting as we prep for the first opportunities to take the field as a team this season; and much work to be done between now and Wednesday.  We lost training this Friday/Saturday and we are doubling down our training efforts Monday and Tuesday.  This is a week that we will use every scheduled training minute that we have available.

Training Monday/Tuesday is on the practice turf right after school 4:15pm until 6pm.  Preparation is key: always come with cleats/running shoes/layers/reversible pinnie.  Lack of preparation will get you a direct invite to After School Club on Thursday.  

Wednesday: Scrimmages vs Oakton at HOME 

Thursday: Team Training 6:30am-8am STADIUM

Friday:  Scrimmages vs Stone Bridge AWAY 

Saturday:  VARSITY Team Training 8am-10am STADIUM

**PLEASE NOTE**  In an effort to support the Riverside High School attendance policy, we will be holding "AFTER SCHOOL CLUB" on Thursdays at 4:15pm for all players who are late to school/unexcused during the week.  This will be a conditioning session.  Players, preserve your one afternoon without training by getting to school on time!

Team Store:  Look for the link in the next day.  We have 2 team stores with a wide variety of products.  

gRAMparents GEAR:  The order form for the adorable gRAMparent tshirts is uploaded to our site.  Please contact Mrs. Gabaldon directly with questions/order.  Let's make sure that all of our most special fans have this awesome gear, thank you Mrs Gabaldon!

Lanyards:  Once again, Mrs Connolly crushes the lanyard game for our parents and players!  Please let us know if you need assistance ordering the lanyard.  Details are also available on the site.  Thanks so much Mrs Connolly!

Game Day Meals:  Mrs Lutz and Mrs Kim have put a lot of elbow grease behind this project and players will have the opportunity to select exactly what they want and for which games they would like to order a meal.  

Enjoy your Sunday and be rested and ready to roll this week!

Good morning RAMS,

Hope you are enjoying an extended weekend over the Martin Luther King Jr Holiday!

Last week we kicked off our SPEED/POWER Series and we feel like we are off to a solid start with some sport specific targeted training in the weight room and the gym.  Reminder that this is the best preparation for the season and there is no cost to participate, looking forward to seeing the entire program in attendance.

We are back in action this week on Tuesday and Thursday at 6:45am for SPEED/POWER and also Thursday for Green Day in the STADIUM at 4:15 until 6pm.

TRYOUT UPDATE:  We handed out the tryout schedule at our interest meeting last Thursday.  The doc is also posted on our Riversiderams site.  PLEASE note one small time adjustment to DAY ONE:  our sessions will be 8am to 10am and 12pm to 3pm.  We apologize for the slight change, but we are working with the Athletic Department as they schedule tryouts across all spring sports.

How will you choose to #CONNECT with us this week?

Riverside Girls Lacrosse SPEED/POWER Starts TOMORROW 6:45am!

Riverside Girls Lacrosse,

We are just about 6 weeks away from Tryout 2018!  This is a very exciting year for our program from a growth perspective as we welcome a strong 2021 class to our program.  Preseason training is a critical ingredient for a successful program; the 6 weeks leading up to tryouts allow players to work together and CONNECT while building strength, speed and sport specific agility skills.  Over the next 6 weeks, our coaching staff will conduct SPEED/POWER Training for the entire program on Tuesday/Thursday mornings from 6:45am to 8am at Riverside. We encourage all players that are planning to tryout for our 2018 JV and Varsity Teams to commit to preseason training and get stronger and faster TOGETHER. 

FOR EACH SESSION:  All players should report to the Riverside Weight Room in training gear wearing running shoes and prepared for indoor/outdoor activities with layers.  Please be sure to eat something for breakfast prior to training.  The PE Locker Room will be open to all players following training so they can shower prior to school.


WEATHER/SCHOOL CLOSING/DELAY:  This seems to be a thing right now:)  If school is cancelled/delayed we will NOT have our morning session.  We will tweet and message through TeamSnap and if we are cancelled.

Tomorrow, Tuesday January 9th is our SPEED/POWER kick off.  We look forward to seeing EVERYONE at 6:45am.
